Top wrinkle-smoothing techniques revealed
13 September 2012Botox and other injectables have been recommended as great ways to get rid of wrinkles. The Sun Daily notes they work by blocking the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract, meaning the face appears flatter and smoother. Injectables are a popular choice among patients who want younger-looking skin, as they are cheaper than surgery, take just a few minutes to inject and can last for up to six months. Alternatively, the newspaper recommended using non-ablative lasers, which work by stimulating collagen growth and heating up the dermis, with little to no recovery time required. Retinoids, wrinkle creams and microdermabrasion are other options, although the results of these are not as dramatic and treatments need to be applied on a regular basis to really see results. Although these are the main treatments currently available, there could be a greater variety further down the line. The newspaper noted: Currently scientists are developing a new treatment that involves injecting stem cells taken from a patient's blood to banish wrinkles.
