When it comes to fighting the signs of ageing, there are a wide variety of treatments promising to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But which of these treatments actually work? Well, top of any list should be Botox, dermal fillers, and chemical peels. And here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, we are Preston’s leading providers of all three. So, lets take a look at these top 3 anti-ageing treatments.
Botox, dermal fillers and chemical peels are three very different treatments, that can leave you with younger looking, revitalized skin. And all three are very effective for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. But each option also offers other advantages. So, which treatment option will be right for you?
Botox is one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments available. This is a treatment that works when directly injected into the facial muscles that cause expression lines.
Lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by repeated muscle contraction from forming facial expressions. Over time, skin loses elasticity, and when you frown or smile for example, the skin stops returning to its usual position. This cause lines and wrinkles to appear. Particularly around the eyes, forehead, and mouth.
As a neurotoxin, Botox can be injected directly into the facial muscles. This will temporarily paralyze and relax the muscles, preventing further contractions. As a result, the skin can also relax, and begin to rebuild collagen, becoming smoother and firmer. This will leave you with radiant, younger looking skin.
Chemical peels are available with a range of ingredients designed specifically to target different problems. This includes acne, scarring, and sun damage. The chemical peel is applied to the face, where it removes the outermost layer of skin. This provides deep exfoliation, and encourages your skin cells to replenish. As a result, a chemical peel will leave your skin looking younger and more radiant. For fine lines and wrinkles, this treatment can also dramatically reduce the appearance of both. This is because fine lines are formed mostly on the outer layers of the skin, which will be removed by the chemical peel.
Another injectable treatment, dermal fillers are a non invasive anti-ageing option that can leave you with hydrated, younger looking skin. There are a variety of dermal fillers available, including:
- lip enhancements- these are designed to provide fuller looking lips that are in symmetry with your own body
- cheek augmentation- this is designed to lift the cheeks, providing enhanced cheek definition
- jawline enhancement- designed specifically to enhance the jaw
But some of the most popular dermal filler options are specifically designed to target wrinkles. Especially those around the mouth, eyes and nose. This works by adding volume to the skin in areas that have lost collagen and fat as part of the ageing process. The fillers can smooth the skin, replace lost volume, and leave your face looking younger.
