Wrinkles and other characteristics of aging typically begin to form in the skin between the ages of 30 and 35. One of the most effective ways to prevent wrinkles from happening is by staying out of direct sunlight and using sunscreen with an SPF level of 30 or higher.
However, protection from the sun will only help to prevent fine line wrinkles and not deep set wrinkles, which are caused by muscle contraction and gravity. Luckily, cosmetic procedures come in a wide variety of treatments and are completely capable of treating all different kinds of wrinkles, both fine and deep, as well as a number of other aging factors.
The following are three of the most favored cosmetic procedures in recent years and what it is that makes them so popular.
Injectables for wrinkles
Injectables are one type of wrinkle treatment that are proven to be incredibly effective in as little as one med spa visit. Wrinkle fillers such as Juvederm Family of Fillers utilize hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring component in the body that delivers nutrients to the skin, to treat moderate to severe wrinkles in the face, lips, and nostrils. Positive results are visible immediately and last anywhere between one to two years.
Originally used to help treat those with muscle-related eye conditions in the 1980s and 1990s, Botox is now one of the top anti aging treatments in the world. It's safe, effective, and has been known to help those suffering from excessive sweating, incontinence, and migraines. A Botox treatment typically lasts anywhere between three to six months before a new treatment is recommended.
A chemical peel exfoliates the outer layers of the skin. There are many different types and strengths of chemical peels, and each one has different properties. Peels treat conditions such as blemishes, acne scars, and dark spots. The process reveals a layer of new, smooth skin and also helps to encourage the growth of healthier, blemish-less skin. Depending on the depth of the chemical peel, the positive effects can last anywhere between three to five years.
Cosmetic procedures and treatments for fine lines and wrinkles are incredibly popular because they're effective in what they do: giving you your youthful appearance back.
