Wrinkles are an effect of aging that everyone experiences. And whether you dread them or don’t mind, you may still consider your options for improving their appearance.
For those who wish to preserve their youthful glow, what methods are available for eliminating pesky lines—and how do you know which solution is best for you? We’ll share how to choose the best wrinkle treatment for your goals, and what the benefits are.
Neuromodulators: Botox® and Dysport®
Botox and Dysport are among the most popular wrinkle treatments on the market. Everyone knows what these injectable solutions are, but do you know exactly how they work?
Both Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators, formulas designed to block signals from nerves to muscles. This causes a temporary reduction of muscle activity, which means less of the muscle contraction that causes lines and wrinkles in the skin.
While this wrinkle treatment does require maintenance, it provides fast, safe and natural-looking results.
Dermal fillers are another type of injectable treatment—but with a different purpose. Rather than reduce muscle activity, fillers work to add volume under the skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles.
While dermal fillers require maintenance as well, some provide results that can last as long as two years! Certain dermal fillers are made up of formulas that contain collagen, stimulating the production of the protein. Over time, your body is triggered to produce more collagen after the treatment, and your appearance and skin health continue to improve long after the injections.
Chemical peels are more commonly known for treating acne or brown spots, but luckily, there are formulas that can address premature aging and aging skin too!
Anti-aging chemical peels can be performed every few weeks, eliminating damaged layers of skin. Doing this allows skin cells to regenerate, providing you with a healthy, glowing appearance. After a few sessions, there is a noticeable reduction in facial lines and wrinkles as well.
