Skin tightening devices vs anti-ageing creams

  • 2 min read

When it comes to getting older our skin goes through a lot. Skin not only protects everything inside but it’s also put under a lot of stress by what's going on outside too. Over time, damage is caused by the sun, pollution, wind, smoke, and other elements taking a toll on how our skin looks and functions. At some point most of us will want to fight those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, combat uneven skin tones and tighten sagging skin that creeps in over the years.

Thanks to revolutionary developments over the past decade, we’re living in a golden age for skincare. And now with anti-ageing devices at your disposal there are, more ways than ever to keep dreaded signs of ageing at bay, over and above good old-fashioned anti-ageing creams. Once limited to the exclusive suite a of dermatology or aesthetic clinic, these anti-aging devices are available for use in the comfort of your own home.

Some anti-ageing devices, such as NEWA, take anti-ageing to the next level, targeting your skin at a cellular level, deep into the dermis where new collagen and elastin fibers are actually formed. This helps to restore the skins firmness, by stimulating new collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother, and younger looking skin.

Does this mean you can throw your skincare regime out of the window? Absolutely not! Cosmetic skincare products are most effective at working on the epidermis, the outer layers of skin, it is important to keep this hydrated and most importantly protected, a great skin regimen is a necessity for younger looking, healthy skin. Moisturiser is a must, with a strong SPF, UVA and UVB to ward off damaging UV rays, a major cause of dry, wrinkled skin.

So to answer the question – skin tightening devices vs creams there is no winner! For the perfect anti-ageing regime use both for a rounded and synergistic anti-ageing regime.
