You've probably heard about dynamic wrinkles, those fine lines that form due to repetitive facial expressions you make. If you raise your eyebrows often, you get forehead lines. If you smile very frequently, you get wrinkles underneath your cheekbones.
But do you have to reduce how often you smile and make facial expressions just to prevent or treat dynamic wrinkles? Of course not; neither do you have to resort to surgery.
Here are non-surgical ways to slow down and treat wrinkles.
Note: the tips below apply to all kinds of fine lines and wrinkles, whether dynamic or environmentally induced.
Retinoids work by stimulating cell turnover and collagen production, which promotes skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Retinoids, a derivative of vitamin A, also have several anti-oxidant benefits. It can fade out age spots, repair sun damage, and improve skin texture, giving you back your youthful appearance. However, you should use retinoids correctly because they're very potent. Use with a moisturizer.
Laser resurfacing or therapy offers the most effective and fastest antiaging results. Lasers send heat deep into your skin without wounding the top layer. The lasers tighten the skin, making wrinkles disappear.
However, you'd need to stay home for about a week after the treatment, and it has a higher risk of side effects, such as scarring.
BOTOX is now the gold standard when it comes to anti-aging and wrinkle treatment. BOTOX is a protein injected into the skin, preventing muscles from contracting into creases.
As the muscles relax and wrinkles smoothen out, what you get is rejuvenated, youthful skin. BOTOX at Jack & Jill Aesthetics is a safe, affordable, and effective way to treat dynamic wrinkles especially. It works remarkably for smile lines, forehead lines, crow's feet, and more. You can see results as soon as three days.
Fillers are also a fast and effective way to reduce signs of aging. They work by restoring fullness to the depressed areas of your skin.
As those areas plump up, wrinkles shrink out, and the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and younger-looking. The most popular dermal filler used is hyaluronic acid.
Aging skin is typically the outer layer. Chemical peels work by peeling off this outer layer, revealing newer, younger skin underneath. This skin is less wrinkled and tighter than the outer layer damaged by the sun and other environmental stressors.
As with many other things, you can slow down the appearance of wrinkles by making some lifestyle choices. Some of these choices are as follows
Quit smoking (smoking causes several damages, including skin damage).
Wear sunscreen (at least SPF 35) always to reduce sun damage due to exposure to UV rays. The sun isn't your friend, and nothing will work if you're not shielding your skin enough from the sun.
Eat food good for the skin
Reduce your alcohol intake
Use artificial tanner instead
Use products designed for your skin type.
You don't have to undergo invasive surgery to treat wrinkles. BOTOX, fillers, retinoids, and chemical peels can get the job done.
But importantly, preventing premature aging by caring for your skin and making good lifestyle choices is key.
