Wrinkles. We all get them; they are just a fact of life. We do have the ability to minimize their appearance, however. At Las Vegas Med Spa, we help you treat those problem areas. Let’s go over some of the wrinkle treatments and the best ways to minimize their appearances. But first, let’s discuss what wrinkles are.

As we grow old, our skin can become riddled with wrinkles. These dips and uneven areas in our skin can be brought on by many things, but mostly age. However, the sun, stress, and our emotions also play into the severity of wrinkles, which can make you look older than you are. While wrinkles are a regular part of aging and are nothing to be ashamed of, looking your age is still important to many people. If that’s the case, it’s time to learn how to get rid of wrinkles.

How to Get Rid of Wrinkles

When it comes to getting rid of wrinkles, we tend to try various creams and fillers. In fact, people spend thousands of dollars just trying to rid themselves of the wrinkles.

A tried and true secret to reducing signs of aging is an excellent daily skin routine. Starting early with a daily skin routine will not only get rid of wrinkles but will prevent them for a long time. If you’re a little older and have never considered regular skin care, it isn’t too late.

Furthermore, hydrating your face can do a lot. Your face needs a decent amount of hydration since it’s a lot more sensitive than other areas of your skin.

Wrinkle Treatments

Botox

Botox is used to temporarily reduce or eliminate facial muscular lines and wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead creases. It is a non-surgical treatment consisting of injections of a purified protein that blocks nerve impulses that cause the muscles to contract, so the skin stays smooth. This treatment lasts up to four months.

Botox injections will fill in the lines of the wrinkles and make your skin look overall healthier. Botox is a popular treatment that allows people to look years younger while keeping a natural look.

Juvederm

Juvederm is an injectable wrinkle treatment that is used to address the loss of volume in the skin. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your skin and adds volume and hydration. Juvederm is used to address problem areas around the mouth, including smile lines and marionette lines. It can be used to fill the lips and space above the rims where lines form and can be used to add volume under the eye. It leaves your skin looking smooth and natural. This treatment lasts up to one year.

Where and how do wrinkles appear?

Wrinkles can appear anywhere, but the most common places people see them is on their face. They can appear near our eyes, forehead, between our eyebrows, and near our mouth. These lines can make us feel self-conscious. When wrinkles spread across our face, we tend to notice every time that we make certain expressions.

Here are some of the examples of wrinkles:

Crow’s feet

These are the wrinkles that extend out from the outer corners of your eyes—the light lines if you will.

Worry lines

These are the wrinkles that present as horizontal lines along your forehead. They are formed from a variety of expressions, which cause the skin on your forehead to wrinkle (like raising your eyebrows or furrowing your brow).

Frown lines

These are the wrinkles that form as a result of frowning and furrowing your brow. They present most commonly as vertical lines between your eyebrows. Some people have one line, others have two or three.

Marionette lines

These are the wrinkles that present as creases that run straight down from the corners of the mouth. They are formed as the face begins to lose volume over time.

Avoiding wrinkles

The best course of action in terms of wrinkle treatments is to avoid them. Now, wrinkles are a natural byproduct of aging, so there’s no way to go your whole life wrinkle free. However, you can greatly reduce the impact it has on your life and even the severity to which you get them.

Here are some of the best ways to avoid wrinkles:

-Don’t smoke!

-Drink water! Staying hydrated is essential for both moisturizing and detox purposes.

-Moisturize naturally! Avoid the lotions and creams and opt for the oils—coconut oil and argan oil moisturize well.

-Minimize sun exposure! Wear sunscreen, and don’t purposely expose yourself to the sun for prolonged periods of time—such as laying out or going to a tanning salon.

-Get your sleep! When we don’t get enough sleep, our bodies produce cortisol. Cortisol slows growth and tissue maintenance, resulting in dry skin.
