Best Skin Treatments For Wrinkles

Now that we have explained to you some ways on how to prevent them, allow us to also introduce you to some of the best methods on how to get rid of wrinkles.

1. Medications

You can try the topical retinoids and wrinkle creams. Retinoids may be able to reduce it from your face as it is derived from vitamin A. But however, retinoids must be used on a skin care program like daily application of sunscreen and wearing protective clothes since retinoids increases your sensitivity to any form of heat, especially the sun. This may cause your skin to get sunburn easily. For anti-wrinkle creams, you should consider using the ones that contain retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids, kinetin and antioxidants as their active ingredients. Creams with these active ingredients may help improve. This is said to be one of the best yet treatments known.

2. Surgical methods

Surgical methods include the dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, skin lifts and so on. Dermabrasion is the process of sanding down the skin through rapidly repeated rotations of a type of brush on the skin’s outer layer. While microdermabrasion is a technique similar to dermabrasion except for that less surface skin is removed. Face lift is done by removing excess skin and fat that lies underneath your lower face and neck and also by tightening the underlying muscle and connective tissues. The results is said to last five to ten years. There are also few more surgical methods that you might want to consider such as soft tissue fillers, botulinum toxin type A (botox), chemical peel and the laser surgery. Surgeries may also prevent them from coming back.
