Three Wrinkle Reducing Treatments You’ve Got to Try
Fine lines and wrinkles are a testament to our history. Each laugh and each cry permanently marked on our faces. While many embrace lines and wrinkles, others want nothing to do with them. They embrace aging but believe that you don’t have to showcase every experience of your life on your face. If you are tired of looking at your crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases and nasolabial folds (aka smile lines) and want a more natural-looking alternative to plastic surgery, consider these three treatments.
Botox and Dysport
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are probably familiar with the brands Botox and Dysport. Both contain the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin that has been found to be extremely effective at temporarily minimizing the appearance of crows feet, frown lines, and forehead creases. Botox is so effective it is also being used to address hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), TMJ, urinary incontinence, migraines and more. The results of Botox and Dysport for lines and wrinkles can last three to four months on average.
Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk
If you are looking for a longer-lasting solution and a bit of volume to boot, the family of Restylane products can be a perfect solution. Different from Botox and Dysport, Restylane is a dermal filler comprised of hyaluronic acid, a component naturally produced by the body that creates fullness and elasticity in the skin. By injecting hyaluronic acid back into the skin, fullness is temporarily restored and lines and wrinkles are smoothed. Depending on the area of concern, the results of one injection can last 12 months or longer.
Perhaps you’ve been thinking about taking care of those wrinkles for some time but don’t want to look like you’ve had anything done. Sculptra is a great solution as it provides natural-looking results over time. Sculptra works by stimulating the production of collagen in the body, which increases the volume and thickness of the skin, smoothing lines and wrinkles gradually. Three treatments are usually required to get the desired effects that can last up to two years.
