fine lines and wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. They start appearing during the lateral part of the 40’s for most people. With their appearance, one bids adieu to the youthful looks. It is caused by sun damage, dehydration and damage to collagen and elastin in the skin over the years. The process can be delayed with a good diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Once it starts, most people give in and accept it as their fate. There are, however, those that do not lose heart and look to deal with this skin condition. There are a number of treatments that are available in order to tackle with fine lines and wrinkles. Let’s take a closer look.

Lifestyle Changes

Simple lifestyle changes at the right time can ensure that the fine lines and wrinkles do not appear early. Drink a fair bit of water, get at least seven to eight hours of sleep every night and avoid the scorching sun to the maximum possible extent. If you must go out during the day, wear a large hat and sunscreen to protect yourself. Keep the skin moisturized as well since loss of moisture is a big part of the problem too.

Topical Treatments

There is a wide variety of topical treatments that can be used in order to correct the problem of fine lines and wrinkles. These are generally used at the initial stages of the problem. There are various kinds of ingredients that are used in each option and you may need to use more than one creams at a given time to achieve the desired results. Your dermatologist can best guide you about the cream that you should use.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a fantastic option for getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Lasers bore microscopic holes in the surface of the skin to remove it. New healthier skin comes up on top as a result which has lesser appearance of the wrinkles.

The production levels of structural proteins collagen and elastin too are boosted and the skin continues to improve after the treatment due to the increasing levels of these two. A few treatments can help you look young once again.


A handheld device is used to spray tiny crystals in order to exfoliate the top damaged layer of the skin. This kick starts the healing process and new skin replaces the damaged top layer. Collagen production also is improved and with time, the fine lines and wrinkles start to disappear. A few treatments of microdermabrasion are needed to achieve the desired results.

Chemical Peels

These are acidic solutions that are available at drug stores in different strengths. They remove the damaged layer of the skin for it to regrow. Like many other treatments, it also boosts collagen levels in the skin. It is quite an effective treatment but be sure that you get it done by a professional. It is tempting to do it yourself but there is a serious risk that you may end up burning the skin in that case.


Botolinum Toxin Type A or Botox is a neurotoxin that is used in specific quantities to alleviate many skin conditions. The version used for cosmetic treatments is safe for the purpose. It is injected in the muscle underneath the skin where the wrinkles are forming. It reduces the movement of the muscle and thus the skin becomes smooth on top.

It takes a few days for the results to be fully seen and a single dosage of Botox can last for several months. Afterwards, the treatment can be repeated.
