Wrinkle Treatment

Wrinkle Treatment pune : Sun exposure is the main cause of wrinkles. Exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays of sunlight (i.e. UVA and UVB) is to be blamed for almost all the symptoms of premature aging. Research states that even a small amount of sunlight can trigger off the process that leads to wrinkles. Besides sun, other factors that might enhance your chances of developing wrinkles include

Smoking: Smoking enhances the production of harmful free radicals in the body that contribute to the premature aging process.

Poor Diet: People who eat an unhealthy diet of junk food, fatty foods and refined sugar tend to age faster than those who eat healthier.

Quick Weight Loss: Losing excess weight too fast can cause the skin to sag and droop and thus increases the amount of wrinkles.

There are many over the counter treatment options for wrinkles, including lotions and creams. One of the effective ways to regain smoother and more youthful looking skin is by removing the skin layers.

  1. Chemical peels and Dermabrassion are two conventional methods for enhancing the surface of the skin.
  2. Laser skin resurfacing with an ablative laser is another technique that like deeper chemical peels and dermabrassion, might require some downtime for healing.
  3. Other lasers, known as non-ablative lasers, might also help to treat wrinkles. These lasers work by heating the dermis and stimulating the growth of collagen. This process, which leaves the outer layers of skin intact has no downtime related with it. However, the results are not as dramatic as the ablative lasers, which actually remove the surface layers of the skin.
  4. Collagen and other filler type injections can also help lessen wrinkles.

Fillers are an injectable treatment which contains a kind of purified protein. It prevents the muscles from contracting into a wrinkle by smoothing them out. A few drops of it are injected through a tiny needle into the muscle, blocking the nerve impulses that cause the contractions. As the stimulation to the muscle weakens, the lines gradually soften, giving you a more refreshed, relaxed, highly natural looking appearance. The Botox treatment requires only a few minutes while this treatment takes effect in three to four days, while maximum results are accomplished in 7 to 10 days. The  effect will fade gradually over three to six months, and the muscle action will return.
