One of the most common cosmetic concerns for men and women is one that is inevitable—wrinkles. And while there isn’t a solid way to guarantee that you won’t experience them as you age, there are ways to improve their appearance, preventing lines and creases from becoming more severe over time.
Our experts are here to share four ways to reduce wrinkles!
1. Skin Care Routine
Fighting off wrinkles begins with the basics—skin care. If you’re not completely satisfied with the cosmetic products you’re using, you may want to reevaluate! Lower-quality makeup can have negative effects on your skin in the long-term, doing more harm than just allowing wrinkles to form.
Additionally, you should always make sure you’re moisturizing your skin with a product that has SPF no matter what. Not only does dry skin increase the chance of wrinkles appearing, but sun damage plays a huge role in how your skin ages. SPF is vital—even on cloudy days—and sunscreen is a must if you’re spending hours in the sun.
2. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a safe and effective treatment option for patients who want to improve blemishes, skin pigmentation and of course, wrinkles. During a session, solutions are applied to the skin that help remove the damaged outer layers, along with skin imperfections. And at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates, treatments are specially formulated for individual skin care needs and skin types!
Chemical peels do not require downtime, however, your skin will be sensitive to certain skin care products and sunlight. Patients may notice improvement of the skin after a single peel, but most impressive results are achieved with a series of treatments.
3. Laser Skin Tightening
For those experiencing more severe wrinkles and loose skin, laser skin tightening is an effective skin rejuvenation option. This non-surgical procedure applies laser technology to the skin, heating the collagen under the surface and causing the skin to contract and tighten.
Not only is skin tightening a downtime-free solution for wrinkles, but it can address stretch marks and scarring in the process as well! Patients typically notice a difference after one treatment, but optimal results can be achieved with a series of sessions.
4. Sublime and Sublative Rejuvenation
Sublative and Sublime work together to achieve skin rejuvenation, helping patients take years off their appearance! Another form of non-invasive laser technology, these treatments can improve scars, wrinkles, contours and textural irregularities. Energy is precisely delivered to the skin, triggering healthy tissue to begin the healing process and develop new skin cells. The production of collagen and elastin is also stimulated, helping patients of all skin types experience clear and smooth skin.
Sublime and Sublative rejuvenation offer solutions with little-to-no downtime. Optimal results can be achieved with a series of treatments, but a better-looking skin tone can be noticed immediately after a procedure.
