Changes in our appearance are a natural process of our body. As we continue to age, our skin begins to become sag and lax, which causes wrinkles and fine lines. Aging is considered an inevitable and inescapable fact of our life that no one can avoid and evade.
Fortunately, due to the radical change and advancement towards technology, the aesthetic world had created and innovated various solutions to fight and combat signs of aging and even methods to help and maintain the youthful radiance of one’s skin.
Though, in the 21st century, numerous treatments are widely used. You should consider the most effective and safe for your skin!
Let me help you to determine the best wrinkles and fine line treatments for you! But first, I want you to understand wrinkles and fine lines.
What are fine lines and wrinkles?
Both fine lines and wrinkles are signs that you are growing old. Some of you may use the word interchangeably. Yet, they differ from creases. Fine lines are little and superficial creases that are commonly formed due to the repetitive movement on the area of your skin, such as frowning, smiling, squinting, and laughing. On the other hand, wrinkles are said to have more depth creases and folds developed due to the lost volume of the skin over time. Having an unhealthy lifestyle can also add up to wrinkles formation.
What best treatments can be used to treat wrinkles and fine lines?
Chemical peels are one of the most common treatments for fine lines and wrinkles. It can eliminate age spots, acne, and acne scars, as well. It also comes with multiple strengths, types, and combinations, such as trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid. These different combinations have their magical works, yet all of these help for the exfoliation process producing smoother, tighter, and youthful skin.
One of the most popular types of peel that is widely used in the cosmetic world is the VI peel. The Vi Peel is a mild yet powerful chemical peel for the treatment of acne and acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, rosacea, and other skin problems. It is regarded as safe and effective on all skin types, which is also pain-free and involves minimal downtime.
Microneedling or medically known as collagen induction therapy (CIT). The procedure uses tiny needles to prick the outermost layer of the skin that forms little injuries that promote your body to boost its natural collagen production. It is popularly known for treating and improving some skin conditions such as acne marks and spots, fine lines and wrinkles, sag and lax skin, and even stretch marks and pigment concerns.
Moreover, Microneedling nowadays is combined with radiofrequency therapy. In addition to radiofrequency energy to the microneedling procedure, it highly permits collagen mutation, which provides a firmer, revitalized facial appearance.
Injectables are one of the most highly improved methods in the aesthetic field. This is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure for treating and diminishing signs of aging and smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
While there are numerous brands of injectables, one of the commonly used treatments is Botox. It is a protein made, Botulinum toxin, which originated from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This is injected underneath the muscle, which weakens and paralyzes your skin producing a vivid result on your face. Records in 2019 survey (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) attests that over 7 million Botox treatments were conducted and performed, making it one of the top minimally-invasive procedures in the said year.
In addition, this treatment is highly ratified by FDA for treating not only fine lines, smile lines, crow’s feet, but also it helps in treating migraines, hyperhidrosis ( abnormal excessive sweating), and many other skin disorders.
Facial fillers are made from artificial or organic occurring materials inserted into the lines, creases, and tissues of the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and regain the youthfulness of the skin. Fillers are also known as wrinkles fillers and are used to add more volume and dimension to the surface of the skin. Its main objective is to enhance the appearance of the skin by smoothing the wrinkles and fine lines, plumping lips, restoring skin’s volume, and improving facial balance.
One of the FDA-approved filler products is Juvéderm (a hyaluronic acid dermal filler). These fillers have a soft and gel-like structure that transpires naturally inside your skin, adding dimensions and smoothing wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. The results can last from 6 to 12 months or extended depending on how the body absorbs the particles.
Laser resurfacing is a proven procedure used to ease facial wrinkles and other skin concerns, such as discolorations, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and even tattoos and loose skin. It uses heat light to traumatize and remove the outermost layer of the skin, which promotes natural collagen production, making the skin appear clearer, smoother, and tighter.
There are two types of laser treatments for skin, but the most commonly used for erasing fine lines and wrinkles is CO2 laser resurfacing. It has been effectively used to treat wrinkles and scars as well as other skin conditions, including warts, birthmarks, and rhinophyma. This kind of laser treatment addressed deeper layers of damaged skin by eliminating the skin’s outermost layers. However, it has longer downtime compared to Erbium Laser resurfacing. This procedure is perfect for those who have lesser skin damage because it is milder, causing minor complications and side effects.
