When you get to age 55 the onset of wrinkles usually begins. However in some people it happens sooner. Wrinkles are one of the first signs of aging with signs of premature aging often appear sooner. While aging and wrinkles are inevitable, it is possible to maintain youthful skin texture and even reduce wrinkles in adult skin.
The most effective form of combating the signs of aging is prevention. Maintaining good skin habits, adopting a skin care regime with anti-aging products, especially Retin-A, meticulously using sunscreen, limiting sun exposure, avoiding smoking and limiting squinting are all important preventative measures that combat wrinkles from forming.
Adopting positive habits can also help reduce wrinkles and prevent new ones from appearing. Eating well balanced, anti-oxidant rich foods, especially fruits and vegetables, taking supplements enriched Derma Prime Plus with omega 3 acids and vitamin A, C and consuming phytoestrogens, like soy, and getting adequate sleep can all help combat the signs of aging.
If your concern is existing wrinkles, there are many effective esthetic treatments designed to dramatically improve the signs of aging and reduce wrinkles.
Collagen or Hyaluronic Fillers
Derma fillers are another common effective treatment to combat the signs of aging. Fillers normally contain collagen and/or hyaluronic acid, natural substances in the body. Fillers are temporary injections into the skin’s contours and creases and ‘fill in’ fine lines and creases, thus reducing their appearance. They must be topped up regularly and usually last for 1 or 2 years. Fillers are most particularly beneficial at treating laugh lines, crow’s feet and fine lines in the eye area or nose.
Now a household name, Botox is the most popular FDA approved treatment to improve skin’s appearance and fight the signs of aging. Often confused with derma fillers, Botox injections relax slight muscle contractions in the face that are often responsible for wrinkle formation. Facial muscle contractions are known to cause crow’s feet and laugh lines, especially prematurely. Like derma fillers, Botox injections must be sustained on a regular basis to maintain positive effects.
The latest generation of lasers is designed to treat a whole host of skin afflictions, including sun damage, acne, and wrinkles. Laser treatment works by tightening the skin by passing infrared light over it to stimulate the collagen production underneath. The laser also causes the skin to repeatedly contract and visibly firm. Photofacial treatments also reduce wrinkles and age lines by causing blood vessels and collagen deep below the skin to contract, effectively removing wrinkles caused by aging and especially premature wrinkles caused by sun damage.
