As we age-wrinkles start to form on our faces, hands and elsewhere. Most of the wrinkles are formed because of three reasons – the sun damage, the repeated use of facial muscles and the degradation of those skin substances that keep the skin tight during the youth (like collagen and elastin proteins among others).
There are many options available in today’s advanced medical world. With the latest developments in the medical sciences, lasers can repair a lot of the sun damage by taking away the dead layer of the skin that the body replaces with the fresher new skin – giving you the youthful appearance. Similarly, Botox® and skin fillers can get rid of different kinds of wrinkles without having to go through any surgery. The good news is that most of these procedures are non-surgical, take only a few minutes to perform and you can resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure. Moreover, almost no pain is involved as local anesthesia (in the form of very effective creams) can be applied to make the skin anesthetized before the procedure.
