With age, you will start to see fine lines and wrinkles on your face and not everyone is happy to see them. Some people may develop them faster due to several reasons, such as facial muscle contractions, sun exposure, or habits like smoking. So, how do you go about reducing fine lines and wrinkles? There are procedures that can be used and these include:
Who hasn’t heard of botox? It is an injectable that minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and is an easy and quick fix that gives you results for about three months.
Another type of injectable that you can explore are fillers, which work best on the lower portion of the face. They can restore lost fullness and also deal with static wrinkles. Their results usually last for 6 to 12 months, but some can even last for a year.
This treatment involves using an acidic solution for treating your skin. The damaged surface of the skin will peel off when the acid is applied and this promotes collagen growth. This allows for younger-looking skin to appear that has lesser wrinkles and fine lines. The intensity of these chemical peels can vary.
A newer option that you can explore for reducing fine lines and wrinkles is Ultherapy that is a non-invasive solution. It uses ultrasound imaging and technology for giving your skin a lift. It encourages collagen production, allowing your skin to tighten and reduce wrinkles and lines.
Laser skin resurfacing
You can change the appearance and texture of your skin with laser skin resurfacing and it is also effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The deep crevices that appear on your face can also be dealt with. The recovery time is a bit longer, as it can take 10 days, but it is quite effective.
