If you are seeing lines appear on your face, this can be difficult to deal with. It is important that you do so, however, or the wrinkles will only get worse. Fortunately, there are many options to help you so you can look in the mirror and see a face with no wrinkles.
Botox injections can be used to remove wrinkles from different areas of your face, such as the wrinkles on your forehead, crow's feet, sagging eyebrows, smoker's lines on lips, and more. A dermatologist can tell you if Botox would be a good option for you.
Botox is popular because there is no downtime involved and the treatment does not take a long time. The dermatologist injects the Botox chemical into the wrinkle and the wrinkle then fades. These work by freezing the muscle under the wrinkle, which will then cause the wrinkle to relax. When finished, you may see no wrinkles at all. If you have very deep wrinkles, however, Botox may not remove them completely, but they will look a lot better.
One thing with Botox is your wrinkles will eventually reappear again. How long Botox will last for you depends on the type of wrinkles you have. Your dermatologist can give you much more information about this.
Use Products at Home
If you do not want to have a procedure done, a dermatologist can prescribe a prescription-strength wrinkle cream for you. Retinol is commonly used for this purpose because retinol stimulates elastin production and collagen, which in turn helps wrinkles go away. There are retinal wrinkle creams on the market, but a prescription-strength cream works best. The dermatologist will start you out on a low dose and over time increase it. At first, your skin may dry out, begin to flake, and become a little irritated. As your skin adjusts to the cream this will go away. It will take a few weeks or months to notice results from using wrinkle cream.
The doctor will tell you other tips on what to do at home. This includes washing your face each morning and night, as well as applying a moisturizer every morning. Skin that is moisturized always looks healthier. Ask the dermatologist about the best type of moisturizer you should purchase. They can also tell you what facial cleaner is best to use.
The dermatologist can tell you about other treatments you can choose, such as fillers, dermabrasion, and more.
