Wrinkles are a natural consequence of aging, and they are most visible on the face and other sun-exposed skin areas. Factors such as skin texture and structure, pollutants, sun exposure, and smoking can contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
Some people develop wrinkles much earlier than others. Genetics plays a major role in skin wrinkling. If you would like to get rid of your wrinkles, there are several treatment options available. You must find out the best wrinkle removal option for your condition.
FORMATION OF WRINKLES
Wrinkles occur when skin cells divide, and the dermis or inner skin layer begins to thin. This happens over time, causing the skin’s texture and structure to become undone. As the skin ages, it loses its ability to retain moisture.
Oil production reduces, and the healing process slows down. These factors contribute to the formation of wrinkles. Wrinkles can also result from sun exposure, repeated facial movements, smoking, and reduced collagen production.
WRINKLE TREATMENT OPTIONS
Several treatments can help remove or reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Treatments include the use of retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids, antioxidants, and moisturizers. Other treatments include:
- Glycolic acid peels.
- Deep peels.
- Laser resurfacing.
- Ultrasound therapy.
- Photodynamic rejuvenation.
- Plastic surgery.
The severity of the wrinkling and the skin condition will determine the best treatment. Wrinkles can be categorized into surface or fine lines and deep furrows.
BOTOX® TREATMENT FOR WRINKLES
Botox® injections work by relaxing the muscles responsible for producing wrinkles. The treatment can last several months and needs to be repeated to sustain the results. Botox® in small doses is injected into specific muscles to keep them from contracting.
The skin appears much smoother and less wrinkled when the muscles are controlled. The treatment is most effective on frown lines across the forehead, between the eyebrows, and on the eye corners.
There are several things that you can do to prevent the formation of wrinkles. Protecting your skin can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Prevention tips include protecting the skin from harmful sun rays.
Hats, sunglasses, and long-sleeved shirts can help protect the skin. Using good sunscreen can help prevent wrinkling. Moisturizing the skin helps prevent premature wrinkles. Eating a healthy diet and quitting smoking will help improve the skin texture.
RESULTS OF WRINKLE REMOVAL
Most wrinkle treatments need to be repeated to maintain the desired results. If you get Botox® treatment, the results will last for a couple of months. You will need to repeat the process at least two times a year to maintain a wrinkle-free appearance. Results of the treatment will vary depending on the depth and location of the wrinkles. The aging process will continue, and this means you will need to repeat the treatments.
If you are considering treatment for wrinkle removal, you need to consult a specially trained and experienced doctor. This will help ensure that you get the desired results. Someone experienced in performing Botox® procedures will ensure that you maintain your natural look while getting rid of the wrinkles.
