Age comes with wisdom for most and experience for all. However, age also comes with some added fine lines and wrinkles that most individuals just don’t want to claim as their own. If you are noticing that as you age you are getting more and more of those fine lines and wrinkles, it might be time to consider a cosmetic procedure like Botox, Dermapen, or even chemical peels. All very different procedures that give you different results, one of these treatments will likely be the treatment you are looking for.
As one of the most basic ways to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, chemical peels are non-invasive and can even be done on your lunch break. During the chemical peel process, a dermatologist or medical aesthetician will first clean your skin in order to rid it of any oils or makeup and will then brush on the chemical. While the chemical sits on your skin you will likely feel a strong tingling sensation all over your face that may even hurt a little. After about 5 minutes, the chemical will be removed and you will be on your way. During the next week or two you will notice your skin start to peel. During the peeling process, your skin will rejuvenate itself and create new skin that has more collagen in it— leaving you will less wrinkles and a smoother looking complexion.
Everyone has heard people rant and rave over how glorious Botox is. As an injectable, Botox is used to help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles in under a week’s time. By being injected into your facial muscles, the Botox allows all of your muscles in the surrounding area to relax which gives you a smoother looking appearance.
Dermapen is another method used to treat fine lines and wrinkles that not as many people are familiar with. During the Dermapen process, twelve tiny needles will be inserted into the targeted area of your skin. The incisions then cause your skin to naturally want to heal itself over the next 6-8 weeks, which in turn gives your body the queue to make more collagen.
