Wrinkles are of two kinds: fine wrinkles and surface lines and, deeper furrows.
Mostly all the wrinkle removal treatments are targeted towards making the wrinkles less noticeable; they are not for complete eradication of the wrinkles.
Alpha-hydroxy acids, Glycolic acid peels, Deeper peels, Laser Resurfacing, Plastic surgery, Dysport and, Botox are some of the most commonly used wrinkle treatments, trending these days. All the treatments are effective but not permanent and some of them do not yield fast results. So, it’s very crucial to pick a proper wrinkles treatment regimen to get noticeable results.
Here is an insight into five of the most effective deep wrinkle treatments available universally:
Alpha-hydroxy Acids as Wrinkle Removers
Alpha-hydroxy acids are the so-called “fruit acids” and includes glycolic acid and lactic acid. Applicable containing these fruit acids are quite harmless and has no side effects apart from mild and temporary irritation. They are, however, relatively slow, and takes longer to be effective.
Plastic Surgery and Botox and Dysport
Plastic Surgery has a wide range of services to offer in skin treatments. Facelifts, brow lifts, and other cosmetic procedures can help largely with wrinkle problems. They are time tested methods which yield very effective results.
Botox and Dysport are both types of botulinum toxin injections. They can be very costly but are very effective even if it’s for a short period. Botox is also used for skin firming and adjustment of nose and lips’ sizes.
Dysport, on the other hand, is used to reduce wrinkles which are caused by a lifetime of repetitive movements of underlying facial muscles accountable for facial expressions. It is used to smoothen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the appearance or movement of the underlying facial muscles (they do reduce muscle activity in the injected region).
These include vitamins A, C, and E, along with beta-carotene. Products and applicants containing antioxidants may also provide some sun protection but in that case, UVA and UVB blockers are better recommended. Antioxidants are good wrinkle blockers when they are applied as a precautionary measure. They keep the skin healthy and firm and prevent premature wrinkling.
Glycolic Acid Peels and Deeper Peels
Glycolic acid peels are superficial peels. They are known to make a very slight variation in the intensity of finer wrinkles while Deeper Peels target Deep wrinkles.
Deep peels use, components like, phenol, salicylic acid, TCA and trichloroacetic acid which have higher penetration capacity and reaches the deeper layers of the skin. They are very effective in reducing deeper lines and improving the skin texture but they have drawbacks like scarring and change of skin colour but are very effective in the removal of stubborn wrinkles.
Dermatologists use lasers to stimulate the skin’s production of collagen; a component which is known to plump up the skin. There are different types of lasers to target different kinds of wrinkles and can be administered properly by trained professionals only.
