Mother Nature Not Being Kind to Your Face? What You Can Do About Those Wrinkles

If you are at the age where wrinkles are starting to show their ugly heads there are things you can do now to make them go away. Keep reading so you will see a younger face when you look in the mirror.

1. Botox

Botox is often used for wrinkles around your eyes, lips, and frown lines that show up between the eyes. Botox works by blocking signals that come from your nerves to the muscles in your face. The muscles are frozen so the wrinkles will relax and diminish. 

Botox injections are not very painful, but the dermatologist may use a numbing agent on the injection site. How many injections you will receive depends on how many wrinkles you have. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and you can go home directly after it is done.

The dermatologist will tell you to relax as much as you can for the rest of the day and do not touch the injection sites at all. You should not wash your face for the first day and do not exercise at all. After the first day, you can go back to your life like you normally would. You will start to see the results within a few days after being injected. How long the Botox lasts depends on your situation but with many people, it is a few months. 

2. Fillers

Another option you have is getting fillers from a dermatologist or other qualified doctor.  The filler is injected into your skin in the wrinkled area. Once injected your skin plumps up making the wrinkles soften or disappear. The procedure does not take a long time and you can go home as soon as it is finished.

The fillers are made of different things, such as hyaluronic acids or sugar molecules. Fillers can also come from animals, such as cows or pigs. You can have fat taken from your body and made into a filler or there are biosynthetic fillers.

You will see the results of fillers within a few hours in most cases. You will have to have the fillers redone again in a few months or they may last over a year. The doctor will tell you to stay out of the sun for a few days after receiving fillers and do not put pressure on the injection areas. 

The dermatologist you see can explain other treatments available to help with wrinkles. If you'd like to learn more, contact companies like Trident Anti Aging.

About Me

Iron Out Your Wrinkles with Dermal Fillers

Hey there! My name is Margo White. I am a 52-year old mother of two who has her first grandchild on the way. When my son told me that he was expecting his first child, I was overjoyed. But as the news set in, I found it hard to believe that I was going to be a grandma. After all, I didn't feel that old, nor did I think I looked that old. Then I looked in the mirror and saw how tired and wrinkled my face had become. It was then that I decided I was going to be the best looking grandma I could be. I decided to have dermal fillers used on my face to iron out the wrinkles. I decided to make this website to go over the different types of fillers that can be used and weight the pros and cons of each type.
