Have you been using anti-aging creams and serums for your wrinkles but they aren’t going away? If you have, you may be wondering if there are any treatments out there that can get rid of those unwanted wrinkles and fine lines.
Why you get wrinkles
It’s normal to get wrinkles as you age, because the skin becomes thinner and less elastic over time. Factors such as excess sun exposure, smoking, and pollutants can also contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
Can wrinkles go away?
Yes, there are several methods that can be used to smooth wrinkles and make them less visible.
Popular treatments for wrinkles:
- Botox is typically used to treat dynamic wrinkles, specifically forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. These wrinkles form due to repeated movement of the muscles linked to facial expressions such as frowning, laughing, or squinting. When injected, botox blocks the signal normally sent from the nerves to the muscle, and this prevents the muscle from contracting. As a result, the wrinkles in the overlying skin soften over time (learn more).
- Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles by adding volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are the most common fillers used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. When HA fillers are injected into the skin the HA molecules attract water, and this plumps the skin and fills in lines and wrinkles.
- Chemical peels can also reduce unwanted wrinkles, because they resurface the skin. A chemical peel exfoliates the outer layer of dead skin cells, and when these peel away the new skin that emerges is smoother, clearer, and more youthful.
