Our skin doesn’t lie and premature signs of aging begin to show on our face. We can’t change the conditions we live in easily but we have many modern treatments available that can remove wrinkles.
1) UV Rays
Australians have the most risk of developing wrinkles. UV radiation decreases the levels of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin in the skin and the sun’s harmful impact accelerates the aging process. Research has shown that sunscreen can effectively black UVB and UVA rays that cause skin damage such as melanoma. According to The Cancer Council, the chance of getting melanoma before the age of 35 is at 75% when using solariums.
2) Excessive Alcohol Consumption
If only a glass of wine can be swapped with water, most probably everyone would be happy to hydrate. Unfortunately, alcohol is a diuretic and can dehydrate the skin and deplete nutrients. Excessive alcohol consumption can develop and worsen skin conditions such as wrinkles, psoriasis, and rosacea.
According to a study in the British Journal of Dermatology, smoking one pack a day can add ten years of chronological aging to the skin. Smoking cigarettes is phototoxic and severely detrimental to one’s health and damage skin fibroblasts. One Japanese study discovered that smoking cigarettes are 3x more harmful than 2 hours underneath sun exposure.
Drinking coffee just as bad for your skin as drinking alcohol. Due to sleep deprivation the coffee may bring, it prevents the release of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) that helps fight wrinkles and repair skin cells during deep sleep. Too much coffee intake also triggers the stress hormone and makes the skin oily and slows tissue growth.
5) Computer Radiation
With the prolific use of the modern age of screens, mobile phones, tablets, and computers, one may find himself eye squinting due to eye constrain. These can cause furrow formation such as crows feet and frown lines.
5 Wrinkle Treatment Options
1) Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections are an effective and safe way to improve fine lines and wrinkles. It is derived from a natural and purified protein and was first used to treat an eye disorder, strabismus. Through a study, it has now become a treatment for facial wrinkles as well as cerebral palsy and chronic migraines. It is a minimally-invasive treatment that is used to relax muscle movements and soften fine lines and wrinkles. The effect can last 3 to 12 months with touch-ups in between for optimal results.
2) Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers rejuvenate the skin and remove facial wrinkles. SKIN CLUB – Cosmetic Doctors opt to use a dermal filler derived from Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA exists naturally in the dermis and when injected under the skin, it takes effect almost instantly to restore volume and smooth outlines to the aged skin. HA dermal fillers work by attracting water to injected areas of the skin that can last up to 12 to 18 months. It is already incorporated with local anesthetic ingredients which means it is noninvasive and pain-free. The procedure is quick as 15 to 30 minutes depending on the individual’s needs.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment that can naturally stimulate collagen in the targeted area It works by taking our blood from the patient and spinning in a centrifuge for 10 minutes to extract platelets. The concentrated plasma is then injected back into the area requiring treatment and can improve the skin’s elasticity and texture. PRP works effectively in conjunction with other injectables to remove wrinkles, loose skin, hair loss, and acne scarring.
4) Chemical Peels
Chemical peels work by exfoliating the top layer of weathered and sun-damaged skin. It can effectively decrease wrinkles and improve complexion since it is derived from organic acids found in natural sources. “Light” peels use Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) to help the skin thicken and retain water. It works faster with regular applications of topical lotions as well as a series of microdermabrasion.
5) Thread Lift
This minimally invasive procedure is highly effective for removing facial wrinkles and sagging jowls. Temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. A liquid facelift is another minimally invasive option that incorporates dermal fillers
