How to get rid of wrinkles
There are a number of treatments that can help to reduce lines and wrinkles.
If you have noticed the visible signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, you may be wondering what you can do to improve the appearance of your skin and achieve a more youthful-looking appearance. As part of the natural ageing process, the skin produces less proteins than before, which tends to make the skin thinner and more prone to damage from environmental factors, as well as dehydration. Although fine lines and wrinkles are a common — and natural — consequence of getting older, there are, fortunately, a few ways in which they can be addressed. Read on to find out what you can do to resolve the appearance of wrinkles and improve the overall condition of your skin…
Protect your skin from the sun
One of the best ways to keep wrinkles at bay is to wear sunscreen on a daily basis. Not only will sunscreen help to prevent some of the visible signs of ageing, it will also reduce your risk of skin cancer and keep your skin in a healthy condition. It is also advisable that you wear a hat whenever you are in direct sunlight, and try to avoid the sun when it is at its harshest.
Make some lifestyle changes
In order to take care of your skin and avoid the premature development of wrinkles, it is a good idea to limit your consumption of sugar and oily foods. These foods contribute to a process known as glycation in which advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are produced. AGEs break down the proteins in the skin, and can contribute to lines and wrinkles. For this reason, it is advisable that you stick to a balanced and healthy diet, and drink plenty of water throughout the day.
Smoking is a lifestyle habit that can also contribute to the visible signs of ageing. The habit is detrimental to the overall condition of the skin, and can also increase your risk of certain health conditions, including cancer.
Consider a professional treatment
There are a number of professional treatments that can effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The treatment that is best for you will depend on your skin type and the location of your wrinkles, as well as how deep they are. When you consult with your aesthetic doctor, they will examine your skin and discuss your medical history with you before recommending a treatment plan best suited to your needs.
Some of the most popular wrinkle treatments include anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, and dermal stimulator fillers.
Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as neuromodulators or muscle relaxants, can be used to remove excessive expression lines and wrinkles, as well as to lift and shape the brows, and lift and smoothen the neck and jaw line. They work by relaxing the muscles that are causing excessive skin wrinkles.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by restoring volume to the target area of skin. Dermal stimulator fillers also add volume to areas that have been affected by the natural ageing process. They are often used to enhance the appearance of areas like the cheeks and temples.
