It seems that almost everyone is undergoing some type of wrinkle treatment these days. Even celebrities who are in their twenties and thirties are having cosmetic procedures, lip fillers, and facial fillers to enhance their already youthful appearance. If you are a young person who still has youthful skin, you may be wondering if you would benefit from a wrinkle treatment.
Wrinkle treatments do not come in a one-size-fits-all box. There are a wide variety of treatments available for every conceivable age and skin type. The type that would benefit you the most depends upon factors like these and your amount of sun damage, your genetics, and overall skin condition.
Facial fillers are injectable products with brand names like Juvederm®. The injectables in this line contain the active ingredient hyaluronic acid mixed within a smooth gel that increases skin volume and pushes wrinkles up and out.
Fillers offer long-lasting results that are almost comparable to some forms of cosmetic surgery in their ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by enhancing facial skin volume.
Juvederm® is a line of hyaluronic acid facial fillers that are very popular right now among those who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or forestall their appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that attracts many times its own weight in water molecules within your skin cells. It helps to both hydrate and thicken your skin. Juvederm® also includes lidocaine to ensure your comfort during your procedure.
SkinMedica® Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a medical-grade solution containing an acid to remove part of your outer skin layer and encourage your body to lay down new collagen fibers. After your body has replaced the skin damaged by the wrinkle reduction treatment process, you will have fresher skin that displays fewer lines and wrinkles. This type of peel may require a little downtime depending on your unique skin goals.
The Bottom Line
As long as you are an adult with reasonably healthy skin, meaning no outbreaks or infections, you should make a good candidate for a wrinkle treatment. Even if you are too young to have developed facial wrinkles, procedures like facial fillers can help contour your face and prevent premature aging and wrinkles. Other treatments such as BOTOX® are also effectively for preventing wrinkles as well as treating them.
