Do you religiously apply creams and serums yet fail to see any real difference in your skin? Or have you skimped on your skincare routine for far too long and developed premature fine lines and wrinkles?
Regardless of the reason for your cosmetic concerns, you should know that fine lines appear sooner or later in everyone. And unfortunately, while certain products can aid your skin, none can slow down or reverse the process of aging.
Facelifts used to be the gold standard, and for deep lines and loss of volume, they still are.
However, if your lines are fine and you aren’t ready to go under the knife, we offer treatments that can erase wrinkles within days after leaving our office.
So don’t fret. There are plenty of nonsurgical options for you to choose from. Below, we asked Dr. Pompeyo Chavez, our expert at Soulage Wellness & Aesthetic Center in Bastrop, Texas, to share a few of the best.
Botox® is an injectable that softens wrinkles caused by movement. These include lines around your eyes, between your eyes, on your forehead, and around your mouth.
Within 14 days of having the substance injected into your face, you should begin to notice your lines completely diminishing. Results last about four months.
2. Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers can reduce wrinkles caused by loss of volume to the face. They can also be used to restore the roundness and fullness of cheeks and lips.
Results are almost immediate, though it may take a couple of days to see the final look. Dermal fillers can last up to a year after injection.
3. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a form of regenerative medicine that uses the body’s own resources to rejuvenate the skin.
First, our specialists draw a vial of blood from your arm. Then, they separate certain blood components from each other.
This allows them to make a solution from your blood with a higher concentration of growth factors and platelets. These blood components stimulate collagen production and healing of the skin when injected.
4. Fractional skin resurfacing
Lasers used in fractional skin resurfacing treatments can heat the dermis without harming it. As a consequence, collagen production goes up, rejuvenating the skin.
5. Chemical peels
Chemical peels reveal new, fresher layers of skin and stimulate collagen production. Peels contain substances that cause a controlled chemical burn.
Each time the skin is damaged, collagen production increases for healing purposes. In addition, peels remove damaged layers of skin, eliminating a dull complexion, pigmentation, and fine lines.
