Wrinkles appear due to aging, and many people are trying to reduce them by taking care of their skin regularly. Parts of the body, which in most cases, have the most wrinkles are the ones that are most exposed. Those are face, neck, and hands. Depending on their depth, wrinkles can be surface and fine lines, and deeper furrows.
Besides aging, lifestyle can also affect the appearance of wrinkles. That can be smoking, sun exposure, the consumption of alcohol, sweets, and unhealthy fats. Some people can have more wrinkles due to skin type or heredity, as some families have more wrinkles.
Many factors can affect the appearance of wrinkles
Some of the popular anti-wrinkle treatments:
Retinoids are very effective and popular for reducing not just wrinkles, but also the uneven pigmentation and roughness. But, it’s not that easy as these medications can cause redness and peeling. This is the part that you must bear it up, as the results will be visible after the peeling stops.
Antioxidants can be very helpful. These include vitamins such as A, E, C and beta-carotene. Products that contain these vitamins will also provide some sun protection and improve skin appearance.
Glycolic acid peels can make slight differences, but you should know that they are superficial.
Deeper peels are substances like salicylic acid, phenol, TCA and trichloroacetic which will be penetrated deeper into the skin. This will smooth the fine lines and reduce the wrinkles. As much as the peel is deep the side effects can be larger. This can be uncomfortable, so it will be wise to ask the doctor what can you expect.
Laser resurfacing will stimulate the skin’s production of collagen that will plump the skin. There are different types of lasers, and before the procedure, you should consult with your doctor to find out which one will be the best for you. Every laser has some risks and periods of healing, which means that you will see the final results after a few months.
Injections are very effective when it comes to reducing the face and neck wrinkles. The anti-wrinkle treatment in Melbourne from Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne will smooth your skin by relaxing the muscles which cause the wrinkles to form. This is done very precisely and in very small amounts, so only the small parts will be affected.
Choose the right treatment for you
Plastic surgery is the most radical way of treating wrinkles. These treatments include facelift, brow lift, but also professional lower eyelid surgery in Melbourne from Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne and upper eyelid surgery. These procedures are done under the general or local anesthetic and the recovery is a little bit longer than with the other procedures.
The good doctor will describe every procedure that he or she has to offer. Depending on the results that you will like to achieve, your doctor will recommend certain treatments. If you have patience and you are satisfied with mild results, the non-invasive treatments will be enough, while more drastic results will require surgical treatment.
