Understanding and Correcting Your Wrinkles
Without a doubt, the most visible sign of aging for people is wrinkles. Wrinkles can occur anywhere on the body, but are most visible in the face, neck, and hands. Wrinkles are an unavoidable part of the aging process. This occurs due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which are the needed connective proteins that give your skin its supple and youthful appearance.
In addition to aging itself, there are other factors that can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles before it’s your time. These factors include but are not limited to:
- Dietary habits
- Overexposure to the sun
Even though wrinkling is natural, that doesn’t mean that people desire to let their age show through. In the cases of premature aging of the skin, it can actually be an emotional burden. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options available for the treatment of wrinkles by either preventing new ones from appearing or reducing the ones that have already become visible.
Remedies to Reverse Your Wrinkles
Chances are that you have noticed the beginning signs of aging skin considering these signs can appear as early as your 20s. The good news is that a qualified plastic surgeon or dermatologist is perfectly trained in a number of procedures designed to help you enhance and improve the appearance of your skin. This results in a more youthful appearance when done properly.
For the purposes of this article we will cover non-surgical remedies to your wrinkle concerns, which include:
- Botox: By far the most known filler. This option is perfect for patients who are just beginning to have noticeable wrinkles and have good overall skin quality.
- Dermal Fillers and Injectable: Botox may be popular, but it’s not the only injectable patients can choose. Other dermal fillers work to add volume to your skin thereby filling out the wrinkles that have appeared instead of paralyzing facial muscles like Botox does. There are a number of fillers to choose from, which is why the best choice is the one you make with your practitioner
- Chemical Peels: For patients with more severe wrinkling, they may want to consider a chemical peel. Chemical peels have three different treatment levels depending on the severity of your wrinkles. The technique is considered a skin resurfacing technique since it removes outer layers to reveal the fresh layers underneath. Keep in mind that the deeper the peel, the greater your need for recovery and extreme care due to how invasive a deep peel is compared to other peel levels.
- Microneedling: A noninvasive procedure, this option uses micro needles to address minor levels of skin concerns and wrinkles. The main benefit of this treatment is the induction of collagen growth, which is a needed material for youthful skin. If your skin is just starting to show its age, then this option may be the best one for you. Concerns like fine lines, minor scarring, and skin laxity are all addressed with this procedure.
