Managing Wrinkle Treatment Online
Although the aesthetic affects of aging are inevitable, there are a number of dermatological and natural methods available to reduce wrinkles. Wrinkle-reduction is an incredibly saturated market -- walk into any drugstore and you will come face-to-face with an abundance of creams, serums, and masks that claim to provide a youthful glow.
When adopting a skincare regimen that relies on natural or off-the-shelf products, the key to success lies in the routine rather than in the product itself. In other words, the best form of skincare is washing your face every night, followed by moisturizing.
In addition to sticking to a routine, there are certain factors that contribute to firmer, more youthful skin:
- Protection from the sun
There are also several types of procedures that dermatologists can recommend for people who are interested in seeing the effects of treatment sooner, including:
- Laser and radiofrequency treatments resurface the skin to stimulate new growth
- Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion procedures remove a layer of skin to make room for another to grow
- Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) is an injection that tightens the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or lines
- Soft tissue fillers are injected into the skin and create a plumping quality that lessens the appearance of aging
Some adverse affects of prescription-based treatments include:
- Skin redness
