Over the past decade there has been a dramatic increase in the demand for non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. The global appetite for treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers only continues to increase, with Asia Pacific expected to be the fastest growing region in the non-invasive cosmetic treatment market.
These procedures include effective treatments for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging as well as environmental factors such as smoking and even sun damage.
For this article we have curated a short explanatory list on the best facial rejuvenation treatments that effectively target fine lines and wrinkles. This covers everything you need to know about Botox, dermal fillers, Thermage, microneedling and chemical peels.
You’ve probably come across Botox a time or two! This is the most common and well known non-surgical wrinkle treatment on the market. Botox works by paralyzing (freezing) the muscles under the injection site, restricting the signals between the nerves and its muscles. This blockage prevents the muscles from contracting, therefore reducing and softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in that area. The injection can also prevent wrinkles from forming, so it is a great preventative treatment to keep any future fine lines away! The effects of Botox can last around four to six months, and results are visible within four to five days post procedure.
Facial volume loss is a natural part of the aging process. This is caused partly by the breakdown of the proteins and collagen that provide elasticity and structure to your skin. As a result, the skin begins to appear saggy, with increasingly noticeable wrinkles, fine lines and skin folds. Dermal fillers are injectables that can help to restore a plump and youthful complexion. They are used to restore volume in areas where fine lines, wrinkles, and hollowness appear. Your dermatologist will inject the chosen filler into the target area and massage as needed. The purpose of dermal fillers when targeting these areas is to plump, smooth, and revitalize the skin. The results can last up to 24 months, but the length can vary depending upon the person and/or filler chosen. Hyaluronic acid, calcium Hydroxylapatite, Poly-L-lactic acid, or Polymethylmethacrylate beads are some of the most common fillers available on the market today.
Thermage is a collagen targeting treatment that tightens and contours the skin, diminishing any fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure is non-invasive and there are no needles, injections, or surgeries required. Unlike Botox and dermal fillers, Thermage uses radiofrequency to treat the skin! The device emits a cool pulsing effect on the outer layer of the skin for comfort, while stimulating the deep collagen fibrils below the surface with heat. This process promotes new collagen production, while working to tighten and smooth away any signs of aging. Many patients see a noticeable improvement immediately; however, the full effects develop gradually within two to six months post-treatment. The results can last up to two years, however individual results may vary.
A minimally invasive procedure, microneedling works by stimulating the skin’s own collagen production. A pen-like needling tool calleds derma roller is used to make small pricks that puncture the skin. This encourages a controlled healing process which focuses on the body’s natural collagen production to rejuvenate the targeted area. By using this device to puncture the skin, the body will signal for elastin and collagen to repair and restore the skin’s surface. This will result in a tighter, plumper, and younger looking complexion. Microneedling is used to treat various skin concerns and improve them to achieve a rejuvenated appearance. It is an effective treatment for those looking to smooth out and erase fine lines and wrinkles! The number of treatments needed will vary depending upon the area of concern, and results can be seen within four to six weeks. The pain level is low, with a short recovery time.
Chemical peels are used to improve the look of various skin concerns, but did you know they also work to reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles? This treatment uses chemicals to peel away the outer layer of skin, allowing for a fresh and more radiant skin to replace it. There are several types of chemical peels out there, so contacting your dermatologist is the best way to find out which one is the right type for you. A light chemical peel removes only the epidermis, the outer layer of skin, and is effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles. A medium peel removes the epidermis, and a part of your dermis, which is the middle layer of skin. In order to receive the results you are looking for, it is recommended you have at least one peel completed with any light or medium procedures. Deep chemical peels remove skin cells from the epidermis, the dermis, and beyond. This peel is used to treat deeper wrinkles, and only one procedure is typically required. Downtime after each procedure varies depending on the intensity of the peel. Lighter chemical peels require little downtime, while medium to deep ones may require up to two to three weeks in recovery.
