One of the most common dermatology services around is wrinkle treatment. As age slowly creeps up on you, your skin will start to lose its collagen, creating wrinkles. While this unfortunate process of aging can create confidence issues in some individuals, you can help restore that youthful look you had a few years ago with the many wrinkle treatments currently on the market. Here are some of the most effective wrinkle treatments on the market and how they can work for you.
One of the side effects of aging is the loss of collagen in the skin. The skin on our faces is very thin, making the loss more noticeable. Facial fillers are a great option to replace this lost collagen and help get rid of those wrinkles. Juvederm and Belotero are some of the most popular options out there that can replace the lost collagen in the skin.
Most individuals who have researched skin care treatments have heard of facial injectables such as the popular Botox. Injectables are a great noninvasive procedure that does not require surgery and uses chemical injections to paralyze facial muscles and smooth out the appearance of wrinkles. Multiple procedures are typically needed, as results will last for a couple of months. Another popular brand of facial injectables is Dysport. Similar to facial fillers, injectables have a short recovery time but may need several sessions to maintain the desired results.
One of the more recently developed procedures for combating wrinkles is the laser skin treatment. Intense pulses of light are used to resurface the skin by tightening any loose skin around wrinkles, making them smooth out. One form of laser skin treatment is laser resurfacing, which uses the intense pulses of light to encourage collagen growth. These procedures are perfect for individuals with lighter skin tones. Recovery times are often longer than the previous treatments mentioned but can lead to longer lasting results.
Wrinkles and other skin conditions can be accelerated through extensive exposure to the sun. Always make sure that you wear sunscreen during sunny days and maintain a healthy diet with plenty of exercise. Age comes for us all, and once it does, make sure to contact Dr. Thomas Wright and his team of highly trained professionals at the Laser Lipo and Veins Center to see which procedure is best for you.
