There have been developments in the last decade aimed at improving the quality of the service in the beauty industry. Several innovative treatments have been proven to be effective for reducing and even clearing wrinkles. Here is an outline of some of the top cosmetic procedures for managing facial lines.
What Causes Wrinkles?
Wrinkles happen as a natural process of aging where your skin loses collagen and elastin proteins. The absence of these proteins in sufficient quantities causes thins the skin, and it loses its elasticity. As a result, it develops folds and creases.
Other factors, such as a poor diet, smoking, and dehydration, can reduce the skin’s ability to heal. Chemical peels and other forms of deep treatment can help reduce and even clear the lines around your face.
Chemical Peels for Deep Skin Treatments
The chemical peels contain active compounds such as TCA (TrichloroAcetic Acid) and phenol and can penetrate deeper into the skin. The application of these chemical peels is ideal for clearing fine lines on the skin. However, the treatment will depend on the condition of your skin.
Peels can have side effects, especially in situations that call for multiple deep treatments. For some, they may also feel uncomfortable and may cause mild aches. Side effects may include scarring, skin discoloration. To avoid side effects, consult a professional from a reputable medical spa.
Dysport to Clear Glabellar Lines
Dysport is a non-invasive procedure that can temporarily stop muscle activity. The neuromodulator targets glabellar lines – the vertical lines between your eyebrows that forms at the earliest stages of adulthood. Dysport is used for clients with moderate to severe wrinkles and may not be suitable for milder cases.
The Dysport procedure takes place in an office setting and is performed by a specialized doctor or aesthetic surgeon. The process will be complete in a few minutes and has virtually no recovery time. Results can last up to four months, but you may have to go for follow-up sessions to prevent complications.
Reduce the Effect of Facial Expressions with Botox
Botox is another neuromodulator that targets specific muscles on your face. It has been approved by the FDA, which has approved it for clearing crow’s feet and forehead lines. It is best used for preventing wrinkles than for stopping them.
You can expect its effects to last between three to four months. People who are engaged in sporting activities or exerting work can expect the effect to last for about 12 weeks or less. However, it is highly effective for certain types of wrinkles.
Jeuveau for Moderate to Severe Wrinkles
Jeuveau is a new version of the neuromodulator Botox. It is FDA approved for the treatment of glabellar lines and other types of facial wrinkles. It is considered to be the best option for people new to facial injections. Jeuveau could be an ideal alternative for people with allergic reactions to Botox.
You can improve the health of your skin through dietary changes and by quitting habits such as smoking. Fast foods contain a lot of fat and sugars that prevent the body from producing sufficient collagen. Adopt a healthy diet even after going for chemical peels or other cosmetic treatments at your local medi-spa.
