Nobody likes looking in the mirror and seeing wrinkles. Even though they’re perfectly normal and part of the natural aging process, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who’s excited by the appearance of new wrinkles. While it’s not possible to stop your skin from aging all together, it’s more possible than ever before to slow it down.
When top-notch creams and cleansers just aren’t cutting it anymore, you may start looking into other anti-aging options. In this blog, we discuss the best treatment options Ideal MedSpas has to offer for getting rid of wrinkles.
Gone are the days of relying on surgical procedures to regain some of your youth. Injectables allow for the nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatment of wrinkles. These are great because you don’t have to worry about setting aside time to recover, and you’re left with natural-looking results that you love.
The injectables we offer at Ideal MedSpas include:
You’ve likely heard of Botox®️, as it’s a very popular treatment for wrinkles that’s been around for decades. It works by inhibiting the communication between your muscles and nerves to prevent the furrowing and folding of your skin when you make muscle movements. It works best for treating crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
The injections have been described as feeling like just a pinch, and the process takes only a few minutes. Fine lines start to disappear within 24 to 48 hours, and each treatment typically lasts for approximately four months. Touch-up treatments can sustain a wrinkle-free appearance.
Another kind of injectable is Juvéderm®️, which is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in your body, and it helps keep your skin young and voluminous.
There are a few different variations of Juvéderm that treat certain areas of your face, adding volume to smooth out wrinkles. At Ideal MedSpas, we use Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC for lines around mouth and nose and Juvéderm Vollure®️ for facial folds and wrinkles.
Much like Botox, treatment doesn’t take long at all, and your results look natural. Depending on which product you choose, results last between six and 24 months. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm dissolve naturally, so you don’t have to worry about a follow-up appointment until you’re ready for a touch-up!
Few things feel better than getting a really good facial. You leave feeling relaxed, renewed, and refreshed. How about reducing wrinkles as well? Certain types of facials are designed to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
These types of facials employ lasers that produce single-wavelength light in order to deeply penetrate your skin and stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that your body makes and is one of the main building blocks for bones, hair, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and skin.
The collagen in your skin helps keep it from sagging, giving you a youthful appearance. When the laser stimulates collagen production, the result is younger, beautiful-looking skin.
IPL facials use scattered light to treat multiple skin conditions, including wrinkles. This kind of facial is less focused than a laser facial, using multiple light wavelengths as opposed to just one. Because IPL facials are less focused than laser facials, it’s less harsh on your skin while treating it.
A more gentle facial option to rejuvenate your skin is the HydraFacial®️. This treatment employs a three-step process that cleanses and peels for skin resurfacing, extracts and hydrates to clean out your pores, and protects with peptides and antioxidants.
There are several kinds of chemical peels, but for the treatment of wrinkles, we use the Wrinkle Lift®️ Forte Peel, the Perfection Lift™ Peel, or the Perfection Lift®️ Forte Peel. Each peel exfoliates your skin to repair and rejuvenate, leaving you feeling and looking younger.
Our providers at Ideal MedSpas understand your desire to restore your skin to the youthful look it once had. We also offer a variety of skin care products that can help you maintain your beautiful skin in addition to our other anti-aging treatments.
