Ageing can be difficult, especially if you are used to a youthful and fresh look. Seeing fine lines and wrinkles when you look in the mirror can be a shock, and it’s something that many people want to combat. Luckily, there are three effective ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, all of which we offer at The Body Work Clinic.
The Top Treatments for Reducing the Appearance of Wrinkles
If you know anything about aesthetic and cosmetic treatments, you will know that a whole host of different options are available for you. This can make choosing the right one for you difficult, especially if there are a variety of options aimed at solving your specific problem. If you are unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles on your face, you have three main treatments. Chemical peels, dermal fillers and muscle-relaxing injections are all effective ways of reducing the signs of wrinkles. However, they all work in slightly different ways.
Below, we take a look at how each of these impressive cosmetic treatments works.
A chemical peel works by applying a specialist chemical solution to the skin in a safe way. It isn’t a case of ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to chemical peels, and there are many different types available, and the right one for you will depend on your skin type. For example, the best chemical peel for reducing the appearance of wrinkles is unlikely to be the same one used to lighten darker patches. There are chemical peels to restore the skin, regenerate the skin, and exfoliate the skin. Though they are different, chemical peels work in the same way.
You can view a chemical peel as a form of exfoliation for the face; it removes dead, dirty and damaged skin to reveal skin that is in a much better condition. Once the solution has been applied, the top layer of the skin becomes damaged and peels away, thus removing any old and wrinkled skin. The skin that grows to replace the peeled areas will be new, smooth and with fewer creases. A chemical peel can create a more youthful look.
As you age, you begin to lose volume in your face, and it’s not uncommon for this to leave you looking tired or older than you would like. This is one of the main signs of ageing. Without the volume that was previously there, wrinkles appear a lot deeper and more prominent. Simply, there’s nothing there to ‘plump’ the wrinkles out. Luckily, dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by restoring the volume in your face and lips.
Dermal fillers work by injecting hyaluronic acid into the problem area. This could be any area of the face, as well as elsewhere on the body and even in the lips. As the area is filled, the wrinkles become a lot less noticeable. Hyaluronic acid is found in every part of the body, but we begin to produce less as we age. This is what causes lines and wrinkles to form. By replacing the body’s natural hyaluronic acid with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, the process is reversed, and wrinkles become less noticeable.
Dermal fillers can enhance your appearance in a number of ways, which is why they are one of the most effective ways to reduce the signs of wrinkles. For example, they can restore lost volume in the cheeks and lips, which creates a fresher and rejuvenated look. Dermal fillers are also used to reduce and soften the lines around the mouth, eyes and nose. By doing this, wrinkles are reduced, and the face looks younger.
There are a lot of changes that happen to the body as we age, a lot of which occur on the face. One of the main results of the ageing process is that your skin loses some elasticity. This happens because collagen production slows down, which is a vital part of what keeps your skin elasticated and supple. Eventually, without the necessary elasticity that comes from collagen, frequent movement of facial muscles results in visible lines and wrinkles. One of the easiest ways to combat this is with muscle-relaxing injections, often referred to as Botox.
Muscle relaxing injections work by reducing the movement of the muscle close to the wrinkle, which stops the muscle – and therefore the skin – from moving. Without as much movement, the skin stops creasing and forming lines. Once the movement is reduced, the skin has time to repair itself, reducing the appearance of the wrinkle. This type of wrinkle treatment is commonly used on the forehead, around the eyes, around the nose and on lip lines.
