itThe development of wrinkles is just one of the natural processes of aging. As the skin loses elasticity, the loss of collagen and other substances that keep our skin smooth begins to increase. Below we look at what are the best non-surgical wrinkle treatments?
Fortunately, the development of wrinkles can be slowed and, in some cases, even reversed. Nowadays, there are a number of non-surgical treatment options for this that can give patients a set of options for approaching this issue with lighter amounts of stress.
What Are the Best Non-Surgical Wrinkle Treatments?
If you’re investigating wrinkles treatment options, then take a look at this guide to some of the options that are available nowadays.
Neurotoxin injections can firm up the skin of the face. Also, neurotoxin is derived from botulinum toxin, a type of poison produced by bacteria. Despite this concerning description, when applied at low doses, the substance has the potential to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
Dermal Fillers come in a variety of forms. These fillers have become quite popular at providing volume and lift to areas of the face where those qualities may have become lacking. You’ll be able to determine with your physician which type of filler is right for you during a pre-surgical consultation.
Chemical Peels apply a thin layer of abrasive chemicals to the top layer of the skin, which burns off any imperfections. Just enough of these abrasive chemicals are applied to achieve the desired aesthetic results. Some mild discomfort may be experienced after the chemical peel is applied, but this is completely normal. Any discomfort should fade within a few hours.
Microdermabrasion is a process where a studded brush is passed over the face, which applies a gentle abrasive massage to the skin. This process gently “sands” away the top layer of the skin, which generally eliminates many of the imperfections that might afflict that layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion is generally minimally invasive, meaning that it’s quite typical for one to resume one’s daily life shortly after treatment.
Microneedling is a process where the body’s natural collagen production process is stimulated in response to mild abrasion. As pokes the surface layer of the skin with tiny needles, and the body responds to this mild distress by producing excess collagen in response to the distress. Aquagold micro-needling is a completely painless type of microneedling that can be combined easily with other types of cosmetic procedures, including Botox and Restalyne.
Fraxel Dual Laser
There are non-ablative laser treatments that are also quite effective at eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. The laser restores the skin’s natural texture, eliminating imperfections and uneven pigmentation. Laser treatments can produce some mild redness in the skin, but these side effects should fade within a couple of days.
Intense Pulsed Light
Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL treatment, is a treatment where a broad-spectrum flash lamp is used to penetrate the top layer of the skin, lightly damaging the epidermis layer. This type of treatment can effectively diminish the effects of hyperpigmentation, sun-damaged skin, rosacea, and skin tightening.
Forever Young BBL
BBL stands for BroadBand Light. This treatment dispenses pulses of light energy, which gently heat the top layer of the skin. BBL can reduce the visible signs of aging and improve damaged skin.
This type of laser is specialized to treat individual brown spots, including sun spots, tattoos, and pigmentation. This type of treatment is powerful enough that many patients see immediate results. However, some aftercare is required, as the skin will be quite sensitive to the sun and other stressors immediately following treatment.
V-Beam Laser for Facial Redness
V-beam laser is a type of laser treatment that’s related to blood vessels. It’s particularly effective for treating rosacea, facial spider veins, and leg spider veins. It can also be very effective at treating acne breakouts and acne scarring.
Thermage is a type of treatment that’s effective at re-tightening areas of the body that have begun to suffer from sagging – this includes areas of the body like the face, chest, arms, and legs.
