Getting Wrinkles? 3 Treatments To Help You

If you are getting wrinkles on your face, this can be difficult to deal with. Now is the time to start treatment, however, before the wrinkles get much worse. Keep reading for information about three treatments that will help the wrinkles go away. 

Botox Injections

You can see a dermatologist and ask about Botox injections. This is a quick treatment that can be done in the doctor's office. There is no downtime with Botox, so you do not have to miss time from your daily routine or work. The one thing you should know about Botox is that it is only a temporary solution. The doctor can tell you approximately how long it will keep your wrinkles away. Once you start noticing the wrinkles coming back, you can get Botox injections again to keep them away. Each time you get injections, your wrinkles may stay away longer. 

Wrinkle Creams

There are wrinkle creams on the market that can help with wrinkles. There are prescription wrinkle creams that work much better, however. Your dermatologist can inspect your wrinkles to tell you the best type to choose from. They will then write you a prescription for a cream. These creams may be expensive depending on if your insurance covers cosmetic products. Retinoids are often used in wrinkle creams. These ingredients repair your skin and reduce fine lines, as well as wrinkles. Ascorbic acid, which is Vitamin C, is a strong antioxidant that can also help reduce wrinkles on your face. 

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is a treatment you can get from a dermatologist. This uses a laser beam that destroys the epidermis, which is the outer layer of your skin. The dermis, which is the skin below the epidermis, is heated which stimulates collagen fiber growth. Collagen is needed to keep your skin smooth and tight. This will take care of fine lines and wrinkles. There are stronger lasers, however, that go deeper but it does take much longer to recover. No matter what you choose, you will have a lot of skin peeling for a week or longer after the procedure as the new skin grows. One positive about laser resurfacing is that it may last for many years. 

Talk to your dermatologist to learn more about these treatments. Your doctor can also give tips on caring for your skin, such as washing and moisturizing, to help prevent more wrinkles in the future.

About Me

Looking Like Myself Again

About a year ago, I realized that I was really starting to look my age. I had sagging skin, loads of wrinkles, and age spots galore. It was embarrassing, so I decided to meet with a cosmetic surgeon to help me to troubleshoot my appearance. They were a lot of help. They went through, told me all of my options, and worked hard to give me the look that I used to have. This blog is for anyone out there who has ever considered plastic surgery. With the help of your doctor, you can look like yourself again and feel a lot younger.
