Wrinkles are a visible sign of aging, and they typically get worse as time passes. Sun exposure, genetics, and smoking are all factors that can stimulate skin wrinkling, which can range from fine lines on the skin’s surface to deep grooves that are difficult to conceal. If you’d like to reduce wrinkles or prevent them from developing, you can turn to these treatments to find the best solution for your skin.
Injectables like Botox and Juvéderm are widely known anti-aging treatments. Botox helps relax wrinkles by targeting facial muscles and temporarily paralyzing them, and Juvéderm uses hyaluronic acid to plump up areas of the face that have lost volume. These treatments are minimally invasive and don’t require anesthesia. A dermatologist injects Botox or fillers directly into the skin to help smooth unwanted lines and furrows. The subtle results of these treatments can help reduce the prominence of fine lines without dramatically altering your natural appearance.
Facial peels often contain ingredients like glycolic acid, vitamin C, and salicylic acid to penetrate deep into the skin and help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some peels only target the surface of the skin to help reduce pore size and improve skin texture. In general, peels are safe for most skin types and can also improve skin tone and clarity.
Another treatment that can reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging is BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL). BBL procedures use lasers to heat the skin, which causes it to produce collagen. By keeping your skin moisturized, this added collagen helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles. BBL treatments take about 20 minutes to complete and don’t require any downtime.
