Wrinkles occur mainly on those body parts which are exposed to the sun. This includes the neck, face, forearms and the back of hands. There are two types of wrinkles. Some are fine type and others are deeper furrows with surface lines. There are many techniques for preventing and removing wrinkles. We are going to discuss some of them here.
What Causes Wrinkles?
Before discussing the preventive techniques, it is important that we discuss what causes wrinkles in the first place. Some of the leading causes of wrinkles are,
- Heredity (people with certain genetic combinations wrinkle more)
- Skin type (people with certain skin type wrinkle more than others. For instance people with blue eyes and light-colored skin are more susceptible to sun damage)
- Exposure to the sun You can’t control your skin type or your heredity.
- But you can reduce your exposure to the sun and avoid smoking.
Some useful techniques
Some effective techniques for tightening or removing wrinkles are:
Antioxidants include beta-carotene, vitamins A, C, and E. Products containing antioxidants are extremely effective at providing protection from the sun and hence help in avoiding wrinkles. If you’d like improved results you should wear sunscreen every time you go out in the sun as well.
Glycolic acid peels
The Glycolic acid peels are very effective at reducing the intensity of fine type wrinkles.
Moisturizers are effective at reducing the noticeability of the wrinkles temporarily. But they are not capable of making the fine wrinkles go away permanently.
One of the most effective techniques is laser resurfacing. In this technique, lasers are used for stimulating the skin. Hence, the skin starts producing collagen. Collagen, in turn, plumps up the skin. There are many types of lasers available for this purpose. You should inquire about the laser being used as it affects the number of required sessions and the downtime for healing your skin. The type of laser being used also influences the risks involved.
In this process, a rotating instrument is used for removing the outer layers of the skin, especially on the face. This process can be taken as an analogy to sand the skin. If dermabrasion is done by a skilled and experienced professional, it can reduce wrinkles considerably. However, there are some side effects involved which include, permanent skin color change and scarring.
Ultherapy is a technique which is approved by the FDA and it involves using ultrasound in a noninvasive way for lifting and tightening the skin on the chin, face, and neck. It can be utilized for removing wrinkles on the chest area as well.
