Get rid of wrinkles

Wrinkles are a result of aging skin and volume loss and are completely natural. The skin becomes thinner over time due to the lower production of collagen and elastin proteins. This slowdown also causes the skin to become less resistant to damage.

There are some things a person can do at home to minimize the risk of developing wrinkles or help reverse the signs of aging.

  • Daily skin care

Regularly moisturizing the skin can prevent dryness, decreasing the chance of wrinkles forming. It is important to use skin care products that match the skin’s needs and to introduce one product at a time.

Using too many products on the skin, especially more than one anti-aging product can irritate the skin, which can make signs of aging more noticeable. Most products take a few weeks to work.

  • Sleep

Studies have shown that certain sleep positions can contribute to wrinkles on the face.

There are ways to help minimize the risk of developing wrinkles while sleeping. They include:

  • sleeping flat on the back

using a special pillow that reduces facial deformation during sleep
using a silk pillowcase, although there is little research to back this trend

  • Microneedling

Professionals were once the only ones who could do micro-needling, but it is now possible to do this at home.

Microneedling uses small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. These punctures trigger a healing response and renew the skin cells.

  • Medical treatments

Most home remedies will only tackle the fine lines on a person’s skin, and deeper wrinkles may require medical treatment.

If home remedies do not give satisfactory results, a person may want to visit a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon.

  • Medications

Creams containing retinoids, such as retinol, can help the body make more collagen, preventing wrinkles. Dermatologists often prescribe these as an initial treatment.

  • Chemical peel

A chemical peel can diminish many signs of aging on the face as well as the hands, neck, and chest. These treatments work by removing layers of the skin.

  • Laser therapy

Laser resurfacing gives the fastest results out of all the nonsurgical skin tightening methods. After healing, fewer wrinkles will be visible within 2 weeks. However, this does come with a downtime of 5–7 days.

  • Botox

Botulinum toxin therapy is a noninvasive procedure that helps to diminish signs of aging by relaxing facial muscles.

People can resume most of their everyday activities immediately after the procedure and may begin to see results after 3 days.

  • Fillers

Fillers help to restore fullness to the face, lips, and hands. Fillers work by plumping up the depressed areas of the skin. They provide immediate results and can often be done during an office visit.
