Wrinkles and Lax Skin Treatments
Wrinkles and fine lines are a natural part of aging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat their appearance. Wrinkle treatments are a great way to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles if you don’t like how they look. Evolutions in technology and cosmetic treatments have made it easier than ever before to achieve your ideal appearance.
Lax Skin & Wrinkles Treatment Options Available:
You have many options to cosmetically improve the appearance of wrinkles to help you feel more confident in your skin. Some different options for wrinkle treatment include:
Botox® wrinkle treatment is made from the botulinum toxin and uses neuromodulators to relax muscles. The toxin blocks the signals that cause your muscles to tighten and create the appearance of wrinkles. You’ll notice significantly fewer wrinkles in the treatment area as these muscles relax. Common treatment areas for Botox® include around the eyes, between the eyebrows, around the lips and neck.
2. Fillers or Injections
As your body goes through the aging process, your skin will naturally lose elasticity and volume, which contributes to wrinkles. Facial fillers or injections are face wrinkle treatments that help lift or fill the skin where deep wrinkles may be present.
Fillers are one of the best treatments for deep wrinkles on the face, as they can help improve skin volume and eliminate a sunken appearance. Fillers are injected into targeted areas where wrinkles are a concern, and you should see immediate results after your treatment with no downtime. Results can last one to two years before you need a follow-up appointment.
3. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Acne or sun damage can cause wrinkles to form. Laser skin resurfacing uses concentrated light pulses directed at specific locations of your skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Fraxel™ laser treatment is a new approach to laser skin resurfacing that treats patient skin with microscopic laser spots to encourage fractional wound healing. This process helps replace the surface layer of the skin and improves collagen production to reduce sun damage and acne scarring that contribute to wrinkle formation.
4. IPL Therapy
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy can help correct the skin without the patient needing to experience any downtime. This process works by applying a cooling tip to the skin and using a device to create a bright light beam. The light is absorbed into the skin and encourages collagen production, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
5. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels use a small amount of naturally-derived chemicals to dissolve imperfections in the skin, which can help reduce or eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, acne and sun damage. New, healthier skin will grow in place for an improved appearance. Chemical peels also encourage collagen production, keeping your skin healthy and voluminous longer.
Microneedling involves using a device equipped with tiny needles to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines and boost collagen production. The device pokes microscopic holes into the top layer of the skin to create small wounds. These wounds heal within minutes and encourage elastin and collagen production to assist with the healing process, which helps eliminate skin imperfections.
The HydraFacial™ treatment helps target aging in the skin to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment uses a single tool to achieve multiple treatments, including cleanses, extracts, peels, exfoliation and hydration. Rather than having to undergo multiple treatments, you can get everything you need with one.
How to Tell if You're a Good Candidate for Wrinkle Treatment
Wrinkles treatments are common procedures, and while they aren’t necessary, they can go a long way to improve your confidence and make you feel comfortable in your skin.
You’re a good candidate for wrinkle treatment if you have wrinkles or fine lines you want to reduce or eliminate. People between 40 to 55 are the most common patients for wrinkle treatments, as these are the ages when wrinkles start to become more noticeable as the skin ages and loses its elasticity and volume. However, you can get wrinkle treatments at any age.
Wrinkle treatments can help smooth your skin’s appearance and help you achieve a youthful look. Most wrinkle treatments have lasting results, minimal risk and no downtime, so you can continue your regular schedule directly after treatment. If you’re unsure whether you’d be a good candidate for wrinkle treatment, a physician can discuss the benefits with you and recommend treatment.
