While wrinkles are a natural sign of ageing, they can reduce your confidence. It might not be possible to eliminate them completely, but the following treatment options, available at your medical cosmetic clinic, can help rejuvenate your complexion and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Is it possible to reduce wrinkles?
Although wrinkles can’t be completely eliminated, it is possible to make them less noticeable. From Fillers to Lasers, there is a variety of non-surgical cosmetic options that can help you look and feel refreshed and more youthful.
The most effective treatments for reducing the appearance of wrinkles are those that stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that helps to keep the skin firm and elastic.
Non-surgical treatment options for wrinkle reduction
Whether you’re looking to reduce forehead and frown lines or minimise the appearance of crow’s feet, the following anti-wrinkle treatments could be a good option for you. Remember, it’s important to always have a consultation at a cosmetic clinic before going ahead with any cosmetic procedure.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that add volume to the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They usually contain hyaluronic acid, which is a compound the body naturally produces. At Dr Nestor, we also offer HArmonyCa®, a dual-effect solution that combines hyaluronic acid (HA) and calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA).
Once injected into the skin, fillers help smooth out wrinkles by adding volume and plumpness.
If you’re looking to treat lines around the mouth, nose, and eyes, fillers could be a good option. Cheek fillers and lip fillers are also available to enhance certain features.
Depending on your individual skin type and circumstances, fillers can last for up to 18 months.
Laser treatments, such as fractional laser resurfacing, can help to stimulate the production of collagen and improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
Fractional lasers, also known as non-ablative lasers, work by creating microscopic injuries in the skin, which stimulates collagen production. Meanwhile, non-ablative lasers work by heating the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the surface, which can also stimulate collagen production. Finally, ablative lasers work by removing the outer layers of the skin, which can help to smooth out wrinkles and improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
Chemical peels use a solution to remove the top layers of skin, revealing smoother, more youthful-looking skin underneath.
There are different types of chemical peels, including superficial, medium, and deep peels. Superficial peels, also known as light peels, are the mildest form and are typically used to treat fine lines, uneven skin tone, and dryness.
Medium peels, are more aggressive and are used to treat deeper wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and sun damage. Deep peels are the most intensive type and can help treat severe wrinkles, scarring, and other skin imperfections.
Microdermabrasion uses a handheld device to gently exfoliate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen.
This treatment can be helpful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles by removing the outer layers of dead skin cells, which can make the skin appear dull and lifeless. By removing these dead cells, the skin is able to regenerate more quickly, helping to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
