Procedures to Treat Deep Skin Wrinkles
May 2nd, 2020 by David Martin
Wrinkles primarily occur in areas of the body that are most exposed to sunlight, including the face, neck, backs of both hands and forearms. These wrinkles fall into two categories: fine curves, surface curves and deeper furrows. Whether your wrinkles annoy you, even if you’re trying to keep them from happening in the first place, you have possibilities to get rid of them and we’re going to explore these further below.
There are several methods to treat deep skin wrinkles. These are:
- Retinoids (Tretinoin, Altreno, Retin-A, Renova and Tazorac). Among all the prescription and medicinal therapies, this is by far the most tested and successful approach to slow down and reverse symptoms of ageing, such as scattered pigmentation, roughness and wrinkles, including laugh lines. Such medications can cause redness and peeling at first. However, if you use them continuously, you will start to notice some changes
- Alpha hydroxy acids. These are the so-called “fruit acids” which contain glycolic lactic acids. Preparations containing these fruit acids are very healthy and cause only slight and transient discomfort. However, keep in mind that with slight discomfort, you will also get minor changes. You won’t be able to reap high level rewards with low level methods!
- Deeper Peels. These peels use components such as phenol, TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and trichloroacetic acid to penetrate a little deeper into the layers of your skin. Such deep peels do a great job at smoothing out fine lines on your face. By fact, though, the darker the tissue, the greater the risk of side effects, such as scarring and skin color changes. Those can be quite painful so make sure you ask ahead before you spring for this treatment
- They include vitamins A, C, and E, as well as beta-carotene. Antioxidant products may provide some sun protection (though you should still wear sunscreen) and may work on improving wrinkles marginally.
- Laser resurfacing. Doctors may use lasers to induce the development of collagen inside the tissue, which plumps the tissue and skin. There are various kinds of lasers, so you will ask the doctor how many injections you will require, how much “free time” you will need to cure your face, and any complications you may face while you undergo the healing process
- Injections. Some injections, such as botulinum toxin (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) and prabotulinumtoxin A-xvfs (Jeuveau), loosen muscles that create frown lines on the forehead, wrinkles around the lips, and other lines. The process takes several months and has to be replicated in order to achieve improvement. Others are plain old wrinkle fillers. You can only get these injections from a doctor.
You should make sure to use frequent moisturizer so your skin stays hydrated and plump. Along with topically applied products, you should also drink a lot of water as hydration facilitates the development and production of collagen and therefore, elasticity. You can also do several exercises to work out your face and keep your skin stretchy and springy!
