Are you wanting to say goodbye to wrinkles and fine lines? Check out these five anti-aging treatments that will have you looking youthful again.
Almost 18 million people underwent surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments in the US last year. The most popular minimally invasive treatments included Botox, fillers, skin resurfacing and chemical peels.
These anti-aging treatments help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help you maintain smoother, younger-looking skin as you age.
5 Anti-Aging Treatments to Eliminate Wrinkles
1. Wrinkle Relaxers (ie Botox and Dysport)
Wrinkle relaxers (Botox or Dysport) are injected into the skin and alter the ability of the facial muscles to contract as deeply. This helps to fade away existing lines but is also used preventatively to prevent lines from ever forming. Botox injections prevent wrinkles from getting worse and can also prevent wrinkles from ever forming.
Wrinkle relaxers are the most popular anti-aging treatment on the market, and rightfully so. There is no down time, and with a skilled injector, no one will know that you had anything done. Wrinkle relaxers last anywhere from three to six months and can also treat other conditions such as hyperhidrosis (a condition that causes excessive sweating), TMJ or jaw pain and headaches.
2. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a type of skin-resurfacing treatment. This type of anti-aging treatment uses a solution of different chemicals that sloughs off sun damage and stimulates collagen, which helps to tighten the skin. Applying these chemicals to your face will remove the superficial layer of your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage.
There are different types of chemical peels available based upon your treatment goals. Mild peels treat mild skin issues and require less recovery time.
Medium-depth peels fade fine lines, facial scarring, and hyperpigmentation but come with a little more downtime.
Deep peels fade wrinkles, deep scars, treat extreme acne, and precancerous growths. However, these treatments have more down time.
Downtime depends upon the depth of the peel. With all peels, it’s imperative that you stay out of the sun afterwards, so plan accordingly. The Fall and Winter months are the best times of year for this, as the days are shorter and sun exposure is less.
As we get older, we lose volume and collagen every year which results in age related volume loss in our cheeks, chin and jawline.
The best treatment to correct age related volume loss is with dermal and biostimulatory fillers.
Dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, are those that add volume to areas such as the cheeks, chin, temples, jawline, nasal labial folds and lips. They produce immediate results and last anywhere from 9-18 months, depending upon your body’s metabolism,
Biostimulatory fillers, such as Sculptra, stimulate your body to makes it’s own collagen to replace age related volume loss. It takes several weeks to begin seeing results, with final results at 4-6 months.
Resurfacing treatments repair and regenerate skin cells and tighten the skin by stimulating your body’s collagen production, leading to younger-looking skin. The most popular resurfacing treatment is microneedling. Microneedling works by inducing a controlled injury to the skin that stimulates the collagen cascade and fades superficial fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and tightens the skin.
