How To look younger?

Face treatments to look younger

We look old because of the saggy skin and wrinkles that are formed on our face. The reason for this is age, sun exposure, smoking, pollution and stress. In this post you will find two important non-surgical face treatments to look younger. But before anything else let us find out the two main types of wrinkles.

Wrinkles are of two types, static and dynamic. Static wrinkles are caused due to loss of production of the protein collagen. This protein is needed to keep the skin firm and prevent sagginess. Dynamic wrinkles on the other hand are formed due to repetitive facial expressions like smiling, squinting or smoking. Our two face treatments are based on these two types of wrinkles.

Botox treatment to look younger

Botox works by relaxing the muscles around the point of injection. This makes this face treatment very effective against wrinkles formed due to repetitive facial expressions. Names of wrinkles on face that are formed due to repetitive facial movements are forehead wrinkles, frown lines, smoker’s lines and crow’s feet.

Botox is very effective against such wrinkles and is the preferred treatment normally used by dermatologists. The treatment procedure is simple and doesn’t consume a lot of time. It can be done in the office and you won’t need anyone to drive you back home. In fact you can return back to your work after the treatment is over.

In most cases your health care provider will first clean the place and then apply a topical anaesthesia to the injection site. Then she will inject the botox injection at the injection site. You will feel a pinching sensation. Your doctor will ask you to move your muscles to find the optimum point of injection.

After the injection you may experience pain, swelling and redness at the injection site. This will go away in a couple of days. Your doctor will ask you not to rub the place for the next couple of days. So no exfoliation, facial massages and exercises.

The botox will start to show its effects in a weeks’ time and will last for around four months.

Dermal filler treatment

Dermal fillers are good for lips, cheeks, chins and nasolabial folds. They can be used for dynamic wrinkles, but botox is generally preferred there. Again like botox the treatment procedure is simple and doesn’t consume a lot of time. You don’t need assistance from anyone and you can go home right after the treatment.

Your health care provider will first clean your face and then apply a topical anaesthesia there. Then she will inject the dermal fillers where it is needed to be injected. You will feel mild pain. Once the procedure is done you will be allowed to go home. There will be some bruising which will go in a couple of days.

The effects of the procedure can be seen right away for some people. The effects will last for six months to a few years. The time will depend upon the type of filler which again depends upon the area injected.

Which is the better treatment?

This is best left for your health care provider to decide. At times only botox is used. At times dermal fillers are used. Sometimes a combination of the two is effective. You will need to look at your budget, the place where the wrinkles have appeared and let your health care provider decide accordingly.

One thing to know is that botox treatment will be performed by a dermatologist or a certified professional and dermal filler treatment can be done by a certified cosmetician. Also you can’t neglect the fact that botox lasts only for four months and dermal fillers last longer.

In conclusion

The two most effective face treatments to look younger are botox and dermal fillers. You will need to consult a professional to decide which one is best for you.
