Natural Beauty Home Remedies….for those who desire to improve their appearance, facelifts and other skin treatments has always been the way to go to attain an improved image and renewed self-confidence!

Traditionally, this has always been accomplished through procedures such as facelifts and chemical peels. There are other procedures that exist due to the diligence of scientists who have poured time and effort to improve knowledge on the skin and its treatment.

Today’s modern technology makes possible many new breakthroughs in skin care and skin treatment.

Skin care nowadays is no longer limited to facials and surgical procedures.

Here are some of the latest and not-so-latest advances in the science of skin.

Obagi Nu-Derm

Obagi is a new system that rejuvenates skin health from the cells. It helps maintain a healthy glow and the appearance of soft, smooth, radiant, and younger looking skin. The treatment is easy and can be done at home.

It transforms dry, damaged, and course skin into fresher looking skin in as little as six weeks – which is about the same time it takes for new skin to emerge.

The genius of Obagi is that it deals more with skin health rather than skin beautification – more like making the road stronger and smoother rather than just plastering the cracks with filler.

This treatment is usually performed in conjunction with the Obagi Blue Peel treatment.

The Obagi Blue Peel is a mild chemical peel that allows for the removal of damaged layers of the skin. After a week or so, this area will be replaced by a new layer of skin which will be smoother and will have smaller pores.


This treatment uses a lactic acid peel to improve the skin’s appearance. It is used to treat discoloration, and damage due to the sun’s harmful rays. Theraderm is appealing due to the fact that it is recommended for skin of all types and age. In as little as six weeks, this treatment can result in smooth skin with a more uniform tone.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use solutions that will smoothen and improve skin texture and appearance. It does so by stripping away the damaged outer layers of the skin.

By doing so, chemical peels can lessen, and in some cases, even eliminate blemishes, hyperpigmentation (or discoloration and darkening.) and wrinkles. They are even known to reduce acne scars and the occurrence of acne.

There are many kinds of chemical peels; you may choose one according to your needs and circumstance. The available chemical peels are divided into three categories: Phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and alphahydroxy acids (AHA).

Each of these categories differs in use, potency and inconvenience. Your dermatologist will help you decide which one is right for you.


Botox is the cosmetic treatment of choice for most of today’s beauty conscious individuals. Due to its incessant popularity, plastic surgery and other ‘bloody’ treatments available are steadily being out hustled by botox.


Restylane smoothes wrinkles, and helps shape and sculpt lips and facial features. The treatment involves the use of a clear gel of hyaluronic acid. This substance is hypoallergenic and remains in the skin for months.


Collagen injections plump up skin tissue, causing it to look healthier and firmer. This is usually performed in cases where there is sagging and loss of firmness in the skin. Results will last for a few months. This treatment is usually recommended for the lips and other areas of the face that are desired to look fuller, smoother, and firmer.

Light Procedures

The CO2 Laser targets fine lines, scars and wrinkles and makes dramatic correction on these areas that are not possible with chemical peels.

With powerful bursts of laser light, the treatment achieves this result with less reddening and irritation than other peels.

Technology is constantly creating methods to produce skin care treatments that are constantly getting safer, more effective and more dramatic.

The above-mentioned treatments are the best today’s technology offers and give many people the opportunity to improve their image the safe and effective way today.
