Some things improve with age, but unfortunately, our skin isn’t one of them. Few facial features make us look older than unwanted deep wrinkles and pigmentary changes to the skin. From liver spots, sunspots, and wrinkles, these telltale signs of aging are a natural part of life. Luckily, you do not have to live with deep facial wrinkles anymore. Most plastic surgeons offer non-invasive cosmetic treatments and prescription skin care products that clear wrinkles and mitigate bothersome skin spots.
Moreover, you don’t have to undergo invasive plastic surgery to benefit from skin rejuvenation treatments. Non-invasive cosmetic procedures, including chemical peel, can lessen facial wrinkles and discolored skin that can add years to our appearance.
What Causes Deep Wrinkles & Discolored Skin?
A combination of factors contributes to facial wrinkles that lead us to seek skincare solutions: constant sun exposure, genetics, acne scars, and lifestyle choices, including nutritional habits, alcohol consumption, and excessive smoking. Pigmentary changes such as liver spots and blotchiness may also occur due to repeated suntans and sunburns (which, in turn, can lead to skin cancer), aging, pregnancy, or genetic influences.
Modify Your Diet to Treat Deep Wrinkles
If you expect to reduce signs of aging, you may have to give your diet an overhaul. If you’re worried about your skin, it’s time to put down the bag of potato chips and substitute it for fruits and vegetables that are high in antioxidants. Make sure you also cut down on your alcohol intake. While a cocktail after work may take the edge off, the alcohol causes your skin to lose fluid, causing deep wrinkles to form quickly. So, the next time you feel thirsty, opt for a glass of water instead of a Long Island Iced tea.
Treat Deep Wrinkles & Skin Imperfections with Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are among the most effective non-invasive cosmetic procedure solutions a plastic surgeon can provide. A form of skin resurfacing, chemical peels involve a controlled injury to your skin. As your skin recovers, the healing process normalizes pigmentation and restores collagen lost from years of damage and the natural effects of aging. Facial chemical peels use differing formulas of chemicals to treat your skin.
Mild treatments, like glycolic chemical peels, that use glycolic acid, create superficial changes. The result is a no-downtime procedure that produces a fresher, healthier surface texture. A board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist can help you decide which form of chemical peel is best for your skin and your cosmetic goals.
Consider Preventative Botox
Most people wait until they start to see wrinkles before they seek Botox treatment, but preventative treatment uses Botox to treat wrinkles before they emerge. By injecting the muscles that typically cause wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and eyebrows with Botox before they start to develop wrinkles, you are essentially preventing them before they happen.
Prescription Skin Care Products
Lessoning wrinkles or skin blemishes may not require a non-invasive procedure or plastic surgery like a facelift. Prescription skin care products can also reduce the symptoms of aging skin. These treatments consist of specially formulated skin care creams and lotions that can rapidly reduce skin wrinkling and discoloration.
The variety of these formulations gives you and your cosmetic plastic surgeon a wide choice in selecting a prescription solution for your individual needs. As a result, you can enjoy a more even, tightened skin tone with a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
