As we age our skin ages with us, and it can feel like every time you look in the mirror there is another sign of time taking its toll.
Developing wrinkles in the skin can be a growing irritation, particularly on the face.
The Huffington Post have information on the causes of wrinkles here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/the-6-everyday-habits-that-can-cause-wrinkles_us_57166d18e4b0018f9cbb3fb3. But what can we do once they are there?
Perhaps start with treatments like a cream or balm to help smooth the skin, such as Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm – available online at http://www.lifeandlooks.com/eucerin-aquaphor-soothing-skin-balm.html.
Here are more things you could consider for wrinkle treatments.
Widely known, this is a quick if painful fix. Botox is injected just below the skin and removes wrinkles and frown lines for up to four months. But if done badly, the treatment can cause temporary frozen foreheads or drooping eyelids.
This is an injectable filler derived from cows, used to plump out wrinkles and lines, and it lasts up to four months. However, a small number of women may have an allergic reaction to it.
Another injectable filler, this time developed from bacteria or the combs of roosters. Within a few days, lines and wrinkles are smoother. It lasts from six to twelve months – lower-risk and longer-lasting than collagen.
Your own fat from your thighs or stomach is collected and then injected into your face as a filler. This reduces wrinkles, sometimes for years, and is good for deeper wrinkles. Non-allergenic, it is clearly lower-risk, but the harvesting of fat and the treatment can be painful.
A piece of spongy tubing is implanted into deep wrinkles, providing a permanent solution. However, it can be pricey. There will be initial swelling and possibly an infection risk.
A laser treatment that heats blood vessels to increase collagen production, thus reducing wrinkles.
The laser burns deep into the skin, again stimulating collagen production. But there can be soreness and recovery time.
This is electrical acupuncture for the treatment of wrinkles and lines.
Synthetically produced and including collagen, these plump up lines. However, they are permanent so cannot be removed if you are unhappy with the results.
This face spray deeply exfoliates the skin but only lasts up to two months. There may be reactions on sensitive skins.
