Applying topical retinoid or Vitamin A cream or ointment is proven to be effective in getting rid of wrinkles. Try to look for retinol in the ingredients list of your skin care products. But if you opt for Retin-A, ask your dermatologist first since it has a stronger formulation and you need expert prescription for it.
2. Peptide Creams
Peptide creams can be used for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Your skin loses collagen as you age, so it becomes wrinkled and thin. The creams will encourage the skin to make new collagen. It can be found in a variety of products; pick one that suits your budget.
Microdermabrasion uses tiny, fine particles to remove the top dead cells of the skin and encourage new skin to grow. The process won’t need the use of anaesthesia and the recovery period is rather quick. The effects can last between three and five days, then you may need to repeat the procedure after a few weeks.
4. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing improves the look of wrinkles and scars by tightening loose skin using high-intensity light. The intensity can be adjusted according to the level that suits your skin condition. The effect of your treatment and recovery time vary. You may see redness from one day to two weeks, depending on the intensity of your procedure. The benefits usually last between two and five years. However, if you smoke or don't use sunscreen, it's likely to last shorter.
5. Chemical Peels
This is best used to treat mild acne scars, age spots, dull skin, discoloration, crow’s feet or smile lines. It removes the outer layers of the skin and encourage the growth of newer, younger skin. However, it may cause redness for some people. The benefits vary depending on the intensity of the peel; it may last from a month to several years.
Botox injection can paralyze tiny facial muscles, it can smooth out the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The effects of injections can last for about three to six months, so make sure to think about how you can commit to long-term maintenance.
7. Filler Injection
Filler injection containing hyaluronic acid fills in lines and wrinkles and adds volume to your skin. Hyaluronic acid is a type of molecule containing sugar that acts as as a skin plumper, minimising the appearance of wrinkles. The effect mostly lasts between six months and a year.
8. Cosmetic Surgery
Lifting the skin on the face and neck can give a tighter appearance. The procedures can now be done endoscopically. The effects of cosmetic surgery tend to be permanent. It will help you look younger but it won’t stop your body from aging.
If under-the-knife procedures sound too extreme or probably out of your budget, you can always try to prevent future damage by wearing sunscreen daily. None of these treatments can replace the benefits you can get from healthy eating and leading an active lifestyle. It is recommended to address any health problems before undergoing cosmetic surgery to decrease post-surgery risk.
