fine lines and wrinkles

Aging is an inevitable process that everyone goes through after a certain age. Some aspects of aging are not very obvious to the eye. However, the effects of aging on the skin are very clear and can be observed quite clearly. The first signs of aging are the fine lines and wrinkles that start appearing on the face mostly in the forties. These are mostly caused by damage caused by the exposure to the sun and the pollution in the environment which make the skin lose its natural collagen levels.

This issue can be delayed by years if good care of health in general and skin in particular is done. However, once they appear, getting them treated is the only real way forward. There are a number of clinical treatments that are available and can help in reversing the appearance of age by several years. There is a great demand for these procedure in the United Arab Emirates as well.

Treatment Options

There are numerous treatment options that can be used in order to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. We shall briefly look at them in the following lines.

Fractional CO2

Fractional CO2 is basically fractionated carbon dioxide laser. While it maintains that traditional efficacy of the carbon dioxide laser, it does not carry the same kind of side effects which makes it a fantastic option. The laser makes tiny holes in the top layer of the skin. Over the next few days the skin crusts away and healthier skin replaces it. The level of collagen and elastin in the skin is also increased which makes the skin firmer and allows it greater natural elasticity.

The treatment needs to be repeated a few times to achieve the desired outcome. The side effects are mostly limited to some redness and swelling accompanied by itching in the treated area. Usually there is no downtime. There is some mild pain involved which can be taken care of by applying topical anesthetics before the start of the treatment.


The treatment works with the simple principle of exfoliation of the skin in order to allow healthier skin to replace it. It works with the help of tiny crystals that are sprayed on to the skin with the help of handheld device. The exfoliated skin and used crystals are then sucked into a chamber. This starts the healing process in the skin and old skin is replaced in a few days’ time. The process also boosts the production of collagen in the skin which makes it further supple and firm.

Clear results can be seen in a few days. The treatment is performed after the application of topical anesthetics in order to ensure that no sensation of pain is felt. The side effects are mild and temporary. There is no downtime with the treatment and one can get back to his or her work soon after the treatment has been concluded. Much like the other minimally invasive treatments, a few sessions are needed to achieve the desired results.

Skin Peels

Theseare acidic solutions that are available in drugstores without any prescriptions. They are available in different strengths and applied as per the needs of the given person. They resurface the top layer of the skin in order to replace it with healthier skin. It also helps in improving the level of collagen in the skin.

Peels mostly have very little side effects and no to very little downtime. Topical anesthetics may be used with them at times to numb down the discomfort. A few applications can bring great results in getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. It is important though that the peels are applied by a professional in a proper setting to remove the risk of a burnt skin.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are not a permanent solution but they do offer great results. These are injected into the sight of fine lines and wrinkles in order to treat them. It takes the fillers a few days to take full effect. The fillers vary in nature though most of them are made from natural fat and collagen. The results can continue to show from a few weeks to up to two years. Afterwards, they need to be repeated.

There are very little side effects with dermal fillers and there is generally no downtime after the treatment. There is no real pain involved in the treatment apart from the pinprick like sensations when the injections are given. Topical anesthetics may be used for people that are very sensitive to any kind of pain.
