Am I Too Young to Seek Wrinkle Treatment?

Wrinkle Treatment by Nuance Aesthetics in Salt Lake City, Utah

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

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.

Jackson Rhudy, MD

Owner/Medical Director

Dr. Jackson Rhudy is a board-certified physician who has been practicing in Salt Lake since 1974. After an initial career in emergency medicine, he developed an interest in the new technologies emerging in the field of aesthetics utilizing non-surgical techniques such as lasers, Botox, and injectable fillers. He sought training from leading experts in the aesthetic field at multiple locations in the US and Europe and in 2000 he founded an aesthetic practice called Light Touch Laser Skin Care Center. It rapidly became a leading aesthetic practice in the Salt Lake City area. In 2010, he sold the practice and focused on his other endeavor, Optimum Clinical Research– a private research site that performs clinical trials on new pharmaceutical drugs. But continuing demand from former aesthetic patients led to the formation of a new aesthetic practice in July 2015. Reuniting with a former colleague, Jill Miller, they started Nuance Aesthetics—a practice devoted to providing excellence in the field of non-surgical aesthetics by offering experience and expertise with the utmost integrity. Dr. Rhudy maintains his board certification in emergency medicine and is the only physician in Salt Lake City who is board certified in laser surgery.

When Dr Rhudy isn’t in the office, he loves riding his bike up City Creek. He has always had a passion for learning and growing in the medical field which is why he spends a lot of free time researching the latest treatments and technology that keeps Nuance ahead of the curve.
