How Can I Reduce My Wrinkles Before They’re an Issue?
If you want to reduce eye wrinkles and other facial lines before they become an issue, you’re not alone. With a few simple treatments, you can make sure your wrinkles remain minimal. Here’s what you need to know.
How to Reduce Wrinkles
If you’re looking for a non-invasive wrinkle-reducing treatment, look no further than the chemical peel. This cosmetic dermatology service is an excellent wrinkle reducer and is often much milder than what they depict in the movies and television. In fact, chemical peels can be adjusted based on the sensitivity of your skin and your desired results. During a chemical peel, your dermatologist will apply a chemical solution to your skin to remove the outermost layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is softer, smoother, and more youthful. It’s possible that you’ll need multiple treatments before you achieve your desired result. In addition, this treatment does require upkeep! But if you enjoy going in for facial treatments, then this may actually be a relaxing getaway.
Botox injections are one of the most popular and well-known wrinkle treatments currently on the market. In fact, people in their mid-twenties and thirties are actually using Botox as a preventive measure to ensure their wrinkles aren’t severe later in life. While most people think Botox “freezes” muscles, the truth is that it essentially relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles with movement. So you’ll still be able to laugh and smile normally, just without stressing your muscles to the point where their movement causes wrinkles in your skin. The best part? Botox injections typically only take a few minutes and can last anywhere from three to six months.
Laser resurfacing is a form of light therapy, also known as ablative laser resurfacing. Light therapy can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne and rosacea, in some cases. Fortunately, it’s also excellent for treating wrinkles. During a laser resurfacing treatment, a specially crafted laser destroys the outermost layer of skin and heats up the dermis, which is the underlying layer of skin. This process helps stimulate the production of collagen, which keeps skin supple and firm. This is a minor procedure that typically doesn’t take too long. It’s worth noting that this form of wrinkle-reducing treatment may take several months to heal fully. If you’re ready to commit to a more time-intensive and invasive wrinkle treatment, laser resurfacing could be a good option to look into.
Soft Tissue Fillers
Soft tissue fillers like Juvederm are another popular way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles before they become too deep. Most soft tissue fillers include injections of fat, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. These fillers are injected directly into wrinkles on your face. They help reduce the appearance of wrinkles by adding volume back to the skin. Like Botox, these injections typically only take a few minutes to complete, and the results last for multiple months. In some cases, fillers may last up to a year.
