The age-old question is literally just that, how do we prevent ourselves from aging and looking old?
Wrinkles are the epitome of a life lived, age, and a changing face. While wrinkles can be embraced and loved by many people, most of us want to alleviate our wrinkle woes and create a fresh, young appearance no matter our age. A dermatologist can provide tools and treatments for the fading of wrinkles and fine lines, along with creams for the prevention of further wrinkles.
Dermatologists today might be considered magicians of a sort, with the ability to radically reverse the signs of aging in sometimes a matter of minutes. These quick, comfortable procedures leave you looking brighter, tighter, and a few years younger than you actually are. There are an array of medical and non-medical treatments recommended by dermatologists for the in-office and at-home treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. Determining your plan of action with your dermatologist will be based on the extent and invasiveness of procedures you would like to complete.
When first visiting a dermatologist to determine how to alleviate and get rid of your wrinkles, they will first ask you questions to decipher the best course of action for your face, neck, and body.
- Changing lifestyle – In treating wrinkles, it is important to learn how to prevent them from forming. Regular applications of sun cream and the use of hats and sunglasses will help to prevent face wrinkles from occurring in daily sun exposure.
- Create a proper skincare routine – A skincare routine that focuses on gentle cleansers, a hydrating moisturizer, eye cream, and wrinkle serum will aid in the prevention of wrinkles and can sometimes assist in the fading of wrinkles.
- Anti-aging treatments – Over-the-counter serums as well as potent prescription-grade anti-aging treatment options are lamenting their spot on the non-surgical side of treatments. Peptides, stem cells, alpha hydroxy acids, and retinoids are all major players in the anti-aging game and can be prescribed by a dermatologist today.
- Medical treatment – Botox is the most popular and well-known cosmetic treatment to get rid of more stubborn wrinkles than any anti-aging cream or serum. Botox, while it may seem intense, is really not that complicated and is administered by a medical professional in your dermatologist’s office.
Understanding how to safely fade and prevent future wrinkles is a process that most of us want to be a part of. With the consistent information and availability of products by different brands, there will always be a new trend in fading wrinkles. Your dermatologist serves as the best indicator for understanding what wrinkle fading treatment will be completely effective for your face and neck.
