The Secret to Reducing the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As our skin matures, much of its elasticity and form is lost simply through the natural aging process. Unfortunately, this is made even more severe when combined with years of environmental stress, including prolonged sun exposure, pollutants, and skin damage.
For those of us who take the initiative to reduce these stressors while we’re young, wrinkling can be much more easily managed through simple, everyday treatments and product application. For those of us who are already experiencing wrinkling and fine lines caused by aging, more potent treatment options are available to not only improve the look and health of the skin, but also actually reverse the signs of aging.
Dermatology Treatments for Wrinkle Reduction
Depending on your specific needs, your skin care provider will be able to offer an array of services, ranging from dermatologic to aesthetic. For dermatology services, patients can receive injectables such as Botox
, and Voluma
. These treatment options address a variety of issues and specific areas of the face, including lips, crow’s feet, and volume loss in the cheeks. The active ingredients in these injectable procedures are designed to create natural lift and plumpness to reduce wrinkling and make the skin look youthful and healthy.
Aesthetic Treatments for Anti-Aging
On the aesthetic side of skin care services, there are many procedures and products that can be used individually or together as a part of a skin care regimen to achieve powerful anti-aging benefits. These treatments range from topical products and exfoliation services to lasers, microneedling, and IPL.
These treatment options address skin aging and wrinkling in a multitude of ways. For instance, topical products are used to introduce potent ingredients such as vitamins, antioxidants, and peptides to the skin. These ingredients help by invigorating the skin’s natural healing processes and promoting the production of key proteins such as elastin and collagen (which are essential for maintaining skin structure and elasticity).
For facial rejuvenation services such as microneedling, laser, and IPL, the skin is healed by transforming the function of healthy skin cells and eliminating unwanted damage. These procedures can be tailored to fit any skin type or concern, and are useful for patients of all backgrounds and ages.
Building Your Skin Care Regimen
Prior to receiving any treatment, your skin care provider will help you determine your specific needs by analyzing your skin and any underlying issues. Then a disciplined skin care regimen can be built, which may include a combination of both dermatologic and aesthetic treatments. No matter your age or level of wrinkling, your skin care regimen will help you look younger, feel better, and see dramatic anti-aging results.
