Wrinkles and anti-wrinkles treatments

Smoking, light skin type, hairstyle, the way you dress, your occupational and recreational habits, and heredity are all factors that promote wrinkling. In addition, you can add the UV rays from the sun to the factors that promote wrinkling in the skin.

 

Out of these factors, you can control the wrinkling caused by the UV rays of the sun and effects of smoking on the skin by reducing your exposure to them. You can only minimize the effects of all the other factors that promote wrinkling in the skin.

 

The indisputability of these facts has not stopped us from looking for various treatments, therapies, quick fixes, medical interventions that reduce the wrinkles on our skin.

 

As usual, sensing a market, the entrepreneurs have jumped into the fray. One set of them assure us that they have wrinkle reduction treatments that makes us look young. Others claim that they have creams that could make wrinkles vanish in a week.

 

Considering the aggressiveness with which these products and treatments are promoted, it is difficult for a medically challenged J nonprofessional to sift the facts. So ideally, it is better to consult a dermatologist to correctly identify and recommend a suitable option.

 

Some of the popular options are Laser treatments, 'Spa' treatments and the ever-popular Botox® treatments.

 

However, if you still feel overwhelmed and suspect the effectiveness of these wrinkle-reducing treatments, not all is lost. Robin Ashinoff, MD, a dermatologist at the Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey assures "with the information and technologies we have today, you really can look as young as you feel".
