For many years the gold standard for treating wrinkles was to undergo surgeries that were quite invasive in nature. While they certainly did produce results, advancements in technology and cosmetic treatments know-how now mean that those looking to reduce the visibility of wrinkles have many more options.
If you are looking to reduce the visibility of those fine lines and wrinkles on your face, while also getting a bright and fresh look, you’ll find that the non-surgical treatments can offer you the results you’re searching for.
Chemical peeling treatments
The chemical peel treatment is one of the oldest types of cosmetic procedures, dating as far back as Ancient Egypt. The treatment may sound like it’s quite abusive for the delicate skin on your face, but you may be surprised at just how non-invasive it is. The results certainly speak for themselves.
There are several levels of peels used, with some even available over the counter for home use. The peel itself is a product that is applied directly to the skin that is being treated. It works to remove the outermost layer of the skin, without pain. Some tingling or mild burning sensations can be felt, but there should be no pain. Peels can be used to treat an uneven skin tone, acnes and of course fine lines and wrinkles.
According to plastic surgeon Dr. Zurek, dermal fillers are a very reliable way to smooth out wrinkles and restore a youthful plumpness to the face.
Fillers are biocompatible materials that are injected directly into the areas being targeted for treatment. They can also add volume to areas where you may want a bit of a boost, such as the lips and cheeks.
Dermal fillers are considered to be very safe. Patients don’t need to take any time off from work after the injections, and will see results almost immediately. Fillers will last for several months at a time and will then need to be refreshed in order to maintain the desired results.
Anti-wrinkle injections target the muscles on the face that are responsible for expressions. When you laugh, smile, frown or scowl, you’ll see lines form on your face regardless of your age. The muscle relaxants in the injections target these dynamic muscles so that they are no longer causing those deep lines when you express yourself.
The injections serve to prevent the formation of future wrinkles and help to reduce the visibility of any that are in place now. As with dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections will need to be repeated every few months in order to maintain the results.
So, which non-surgical solution can help you to see the cosmetic results that you are looking for? Your first step should be to schedule a consultation that will allow you to discuss your hopes and cosmetic goals. Be sure to have realistic expectations from any cosmetic treatment, as results will vary between individuals.
You may also find that a combination of several non-surgical cosmetic treatments can help you to achieve that refreshed and healthy look that you’ve missed seeing in the mirror.
