It can be disheartening to notice your face developing fine lines or full-blown wrinkles and realize the aging process is taking its toll. Fortunately, there are plenty of wrinkle treatments available to help slow down the signs of maturing skin and restore your youthful glow. Wrinkles form when skin begins to lose its collagen, which is a natural part of life and cannot be prevented from happening. What your dermatologist can do, however, is present you with options to reduce the appearance of fine surface lines and deeper set wrinkles. Here are some of the most successful treatments for slowing down time and making wrinkles disappear.
Cosmetic injectables are a non-invasive way to get rid of wrinkles, and there are several to choose from. Botox remains the most well-known and requested injection. It stops wrinkles from developing by immobilizing the muscles that generally cause them to appear. Botox is long-lasting and provides almost immediate results. Other types of injectables include Restlyane, Dysport, and Xeomin. Each can be used to greatly improve the impact of lost volume in the skin.
Fillers are also injected into problem areas as a method for flattening wrinkles and skin folds. While collagen used to be the most popular filler, dermatologists now have many other substances available that have shown to produce much longer lasting effects. Juvederm, Radisse, and Boletero are all excellent options to consider.
Fractional resurfacing is a newer technique used to target wrinkles. It’s a laser treatment that passes through the skin to trigger new collagen growth. It’s minimally invasive and usually requires a few treatments to see the best results possible.
Laser resurfacing is performed by passing the laser back and forth over the area to be treated until it has penetrated through to the skin’s second layer. Much like fractional resurfacing, it is intended to re-spark collagen production, but can take the skin longer to heal.
