How to Choose the Best Wrinkle Treatment

By Therese Goodwint

Unfortunately, we all get some wrinkles as we age, and we all find this rather unpleasant. The social demands of looking young and beautiful dominates this negative feeling we have about wrinkles. Stress from busy lives as well as other outside influences such as pollution also work to make wrinkles and lines begin to appear as we age.

The advancement of cosmetic science and technology has been welcome news for men and women who refuse to grow old. The easy availability of the fillers and the injectables are offering more than just a quick fix and the results achieved are simply overwhelming.

There is no lack of choice for techniques in today's market for those who want a more youthful appearance. Both men and women are choosing injectable procedures and fillers increasingly, and which one a person goes with depends on their specific issues. Fillers and injectable treatments have some differences which will be outlined here.

In order to decide what is right for you, it's good to have knowledge about how they differ. The most common injectables are Botox and Restylane. The site where the substance is injected will become numbed. They tend to numb the muscles in the area making it flexed and thus preventing the wrinkles. Patients are often surprised to learn that it only takes a moment or 2 for the process and then it's over. Most importantly, the results are instant and the achieved results last for 4-6 months. No general anesthesia is necessary, and the ultra fine needles cause only a very brief and mild sensation of pain.

The leading brand is Botox, when considering injectable treatments. This is actually a purified protein, and wrinkles in the forehead and deeper creases in the neck, crow's feet and brow and frown lines can be reduced when this in injected in those areas. The wrinkles will come back in time, as the effects of muscle numbness in the area from a Botox treatment wears off. Having a treatment such as this poses no risk to a patient.

Restylane works well on the deep wrinkles that are stubborn as well. The dermis layer of the skin is injected with this gel-like product, and the benefits from this process are well known. The most prominent ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid, and this is a natural substance inside people's bodies. This works well on the area like the frown lines on the forehead, crow's feet, laugh lines and the deep creases in the neck.

Dermal fillers are the best choice when it comes to pumping up your lips. The benefits from these fillers are huge, but to maintenance will be needed in order to have the effect be ongoing because the results will diminish eventually.

Some redness and swelling will be there, which will subside after a few hours and bruises after a few days. You will be able to continue your life right away afterwards, as the procedure will not cause anything more than minor problems and very briefly. Depending on where the treatment is administered, the price can be different, and follow ups will be required to keep the effects maintained every four to six months time.
