Do you have wrinkles? Are you looking for a way to reduce them? Here are the top 5 wrinkle reducers.
What Happens To Our Skin As We Grow Older?
As we age, our skin doesn't respond differently as it did before. Our collagen and elastin production is reduced, which causes wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Wrinkle reduction treatments have helped many aging people have younger-looking skin.
Top 5 Wrinkle Reducers
Botulinum toxin works by paralyzing the muscles of facial expression. The injection process is relatively painless and does not require anesthesia. Because the effect of Botox is temporary; patients must repeat treatment every three- to four months as needed. Botox is licensed to treat wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.
Fillers are used to plump out fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Some of the most popular fillers include Artecoll, Restylane, and Juvederm. Depending on the type of filler used, results can last up to about six months.
3. Skin Care Products
Skincare products, such as moisturizers and sunscreens can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Many skin care products contain retinol, which is related to vitamin A. Retinol can act as an antioxidant and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Facial treatments can range from the very gentle, such as a basic cleansing routine, to the more intense microdermabrasion. A qualified aesthetician can do facials in your dermatologist's office or at a spa. In some cases, topical creams may be applied to the skin as part of the treatment. However, most facial treatments do not require a prescription.
In some cases, surgery may be an option. However, surgery should always be done for preventive purposes or to improve function rather than to change appearance only. The surgery varies depending on the type of procedure. It may be done using lasers, chemical peels, dermabrasion, or microdermabrasion.
Skin Rejuvenation with Light-Based Technology (GEM-PL Technology)
There is a new technology that provides non-surgical and painless treatment for facial rejuvenation.
Gem-Plasma skin rejuvenation or Gem-PL is a light/RF combination technology that uses a unique patented "Gem" handpiece. The laser emits a spectrum of wavelengths from the infrared to the deep red wavelength at 1640nm, which is combined with RF energy delivered by two separate handpieces -this modality treats facial rejuvenation without side effects associated with Lasers.
Active Crystal Medspa in Toronto uses advanced cosmetic technology for skincare treatments. The "Gem" handpiece is used to focus RF energy at the dermis level of the skin. The laser is used for deeper penetration and stimulates collagen production in the dermis after heating it with light/RF energy.
There are many ways to treat or minimize wrinkles. If you are experiencing fine lines around the eyes, consider Botox injections. Fillers can plump out the face and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Retinol-containing skincare products can also help increase collagen production in the skin.
