With so much emphasis being placed on youthfulness, it’s not surprising that many non-invasive anti-wrinkle cosmetic treatments are now on the market. Some of these treatments promise immediate, long-lasting results, while others are temporary. But what are the best wrinkle reduction treatments, and how effective are they.
Some of the best anti-wrinkle treatments include:
Botox is the top non-invasive anti-aging treatment. It is derived from botulinum toxin Type A, and temporarily improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is generally used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, as well as lines across the forehead.
Botox is injected into the muscles and interrupts the nerve impulses. This action prevents the muscles from contracting. As the muscles relax, wrinkles soften, and new ones don’t form because of the reduced muscle movement.
There are also a wide range of dermal fillers available on the market, which can effectively reduce wrinkles. The most popular types are those derived from hyaluronic acid, such as Juvederm and Restylane. Dermal fillers can be used to fill in deep lines and wrinkles, and also to improve facial contours by adding volume.
The effects of botox normally last 4-6 months, while dermal fillers generally last 6 months to a year, it all depends on the type of filler used.
During a chemical peel, an acid solution is used to strip away the damaged top layer of skin. Exfoliating the dead skin cells reveals a new skin layer that is smother and clearer. As a result, wrinkles are diminished.
