Seeing wrinkles appear on your face can be hard to deal with. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to make the wrinkles much more diminished or even go away. Keep reading so you will be happier when you look in the mirror.
You can get Botox injections to help you with your wrinkles. See a dermatologist and they will tell you if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Botox is generally used to treat wrinkles around your eyes, such as Crow's feet, wrinkles on your forehead, and frown lines. The dermatologist may also use Botox in other areas on your face. It is important you only get Botox treatment from a doctor. If it is used incorrectly, you could harm yourself.
The Botox is injected with a needle into the wrinkled area. It feels like a regular shot you may receive. The doctor may use a numbing agent on the area if you prefer. You will start to see results in a couple of weeks in most cases and wrinkles generally start to reappear in a few months or up to a year. You will have to continue with these treatments to keep the wrinkles away.
Another option you have is to use fillers to make the wrinkles go away. This thins out the wrinkles to make them disappear. Fillers can also be used for other things, such as plumping your lips. There are many substances that are used as fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-l-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate. These fillers will last a few months to a few years.
For something that lasts many years, you can use fat injections. With this, the filler comes from fat in your own body. Liposuction is generally used to get the fat. This can be beneficial if you have fat on your body that you want removed. The fat is purified and then injected into the wrinkled area. This type of filler needs to be done by a cosmetic surgeon that is experienced with this type of treatment. You can generally go home the same day and will see results very quickly.
Botox and fillers are not your only options to help with wrinkles. You can have a facelift done, use laser skin resurfacing, and more. Your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon can go over these with you; to learn more, contact yours today.
