New Year, New Smile

When facing the new year, it’s not uncommon for us to make a resolution to better ourselves. This could be a change in habits, giving up smoking or even paying more attention to the way we look and feel.

Wrinkles can be a natural sign of aging, but in some instances, they can become a little overwhelming. Fortunately, there are steps that can be taken that can help reduce wrinkles and ensure that we’re looking our best as we enter the new year.

Why Wrinkles Occur

Although wrinkles can occur as we become older, there can be other reasons. In some instances, it could be due to being exposed to UV light.

This is because UV light can break down the collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. Those who smoke may also find that their susceptible to wrinkles due to lack of oxygen and nutrients.

Dealing with Wrinkles

It stands to reason that those who are looking to reduce their wrinkles will be keen to find a solution that works. Although there are many creams and ointments available online, they don’t always have the desired effect, especially in more severe instances.

Fortunately, dealing with a professional can ensure that you’re not only being given a treatment that is effective, but also tailored to your specific requirements.

Wrinkle Relaxing Injection: As the name would suggest, this treatment comes in the form of an injection which delivers neurotoxin into the facial muscles. This cause the muscles to relax which in turn deliver a more youthful complexion, ideal for those looking to reinvent themselves the new year.

Dermal Fillers: Although similar to wrinkle relaxing injections, the use of dermal fillers does differ. Rather than injecting a neurotoxin, dermal fillers see small amounts of gel injected into the skin which lifts and smooths wrinkles while adding volume to the skin.

The gel is normally made from hyaluronic acid and will work in tandem with the existing collagen and elastin, and can last as long as 18 months, although this can vary from person to person.

Only Deal with a Seasoned Professional

When taking steps to overhaul our appearance for the New Year, it’s understandable that many want to get started sooner rather than later. However, it’s important that you only receive treatments from a qualified professional.

As well as ensuring that the treatment will be administered properly, a professional ill also be able to offer further guidance when it comes to keeping wrinkles to a minimum. Should you have treatment but not be fully versed on what you should and shouldn’t do afterward, then you may find that the treatment has little effect.
