Today, we’re fortunate to have a plethora of cosmetic medical treatments available that are all designed to iron those skin creases out. But where to start?
The first step is to do your research. Figure out what treatments there are out there and which sound the most appealing to you.
Next, discuss your options with a skincare expert with good knowledge of general skin structure and how it is affected by the aging process. Make sure they’re suitably qualified. During your discussion, make sure to find out the negative side effects (if any) and let the professional know what you’re hoping to gain from your treatment, as well as the results you may realistically achieve.
Here are 5 basic things things you should know if you’re a newbie to anti-aging treatments:
1. Botox®, which is essentially botulinum toxin injections, are best for wrinkles in the upper part of your face (around your eyes and across your forehead).
2. Dermal fillers are great for deep wrinkles and creases anywhere on your face, but not so good for saggy skin.
3. Fraxel Skin Resurfacing is ideal for serious complexion concerns.
4. Some laser based treatments may not be suitable if you have a history of hyperpigmentation from trauma.
5. You don’t have to turn to surgery to address wrinkles, saggy skin, pigmentation problems and acne. There are nonsurgical solutions!
