Best Ways to Treat Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles and Fine lines are one of the most common signs of aging, but they don’t have to be permanent. There are several treatments that can reduce their appearance, including injectables, lasers and fillers. Some are more effective than others, and you should always seek out a board-certified dermatologist for the best results. This month we’ll take a look at some of the best ways to treat wrinkles and fine lines and what can cause them in the first place.

How Do Wrinkles Form?

Over time, the repeated use of muscles in your face causes the skin to sag and develop fine lines and wrinkles. These lines can be dynamic or static, depending on how you use your face. Dynamic wrinkles are creases that appear when you make certain expressions, like smiling or frowning. They fade soon after, but over time they can deepen into static wrinkles that are visible at all times.

Some lifestyle factors can also lead to the development of wrinkles, such as smoking or excessive sun exposure. Smoking deteriorates the skin’s collagen and can cause fine lines to become more prominent, while UV light can increase your chances of developing sun damage and wrinkling. You can reduce your risk of wrinkles by wearing a hat, staying out of the sun and using sunscreen.

What is the Best Way to Treat Wrinkles?

The most common way to treat fine lines and wrinkles is by using anti-aging skincare products. Many of these contain ingredients that help to boost elasticity and smooth skin’s texture. For example, Vitamin C is a trusted ingredient known to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and provide antioxidant protection. It’s often included in skincare formulas alongside Retinol and Pro-Retinol, which are derivatives of Vitamin A that help to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles and even out skin tone.

Another way to smooth fine lines is to apply a facial massage. This can help to stimulate circulation and boost the production of collagen, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Finally, a good way to fight wrinkles is to get enough sleep, as not sleeping enough can lead to dryness and inflammation of the skin.

If you’re looking for a non-invasive treatment that can reduce the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles, you should look into laser treatments such as radio frequency (Thermage is the most well-known brand) or ultrasound. These treatments can be performed at a clinic, and they usually only require one session to notice significant results that last a few years. They are much more expensive than over-the-counter wrinkle creams, but they can be much more effective and offer a more permanent solution.

You can find many before and after photos of laser treatment on the internet, but you should be wary of some of these images. Some are misleading and may have been altered with photo-editing software. It is important to choose a qualified practitioner who is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons or a Fellow of the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgeons.
