Whether you're 35 and just beginning to see the first signs of aging, or 55 with skin that isn't exactly keeping your birthday a secret, seeking ways to reduce wrinkles is probably on your agenda. At the same time, experts say, many of us are losing the wrinkle battle, watching helplessly as the glow of youth goes on the dimmer switch.
"Many women as well as men believe that aging skin is inevitable, but with the information and technologies we have today, you really can look as young as you feel"
Treatments That Reduce Wrinkles
An injection of this purified version of the Botulinum toxin A relaxes the muscle just underneath the wrinkle, allowing the skin on top to lie smooth and crease-free.
Doctors fill wrinkles with a variety of substances, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, polycaprolactone and other biodegradable products. Popular treatments include Radiesse, Juvederm, Ellanse, and Teosyal, among others.
Platelet Rich Plasma - PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) utilizes the patient’s own (autologous) platelets, derived from his/her own blood to rejuvenate the skin and regenerate the tissues underneath, including the tissues around your eyes.
In this treatment, one of a variety of different chemicals is used to "burn" away the top layer of skin, creating damage that causes the body to respond by making more collagen. You end up with younger-looking, smoother skin.
