Antiaging Wrinkle Treatment - Surgery to Treat Wrinkles

Fine thin lines known as expression lines are can be dealt with anti-wrinkle injections known as Botox. Botox helps to relax the muscles that cause the skin compression. Botox is mainly injected in the muscles that are present between the brows and around the eyes. Anti-wrinkle injections usually endure for three to four months. By halting the movements or the expressions that develop wrinkles, anti-wrinkle injections or Botox may also help to prevent static lines from getting deeper by blocking the compression of the skin. However, regular use of the anti-wrinkle injections at frequent intervals offers the skin a break from the constant compression. Another common procedure or process to treat static lines or lines that are at rest is with the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers have the capacity of adding volume to the region that has lost volume because of the formation of habitual facial expressions, due to gravity, due to sleep or just due to ageing. Dermal fillers are not permanent in their effect and the results usually last from four to 18 months.

Medical Procedures to Treat Wrinkles

Much better than most temporary fixtures available in the market is a more permanent solution which is also referred to as skin re-surfacing. Skin resurfacing can be done with the help of laser, or deep chemical peels, or plasma skin reconstruction.

Conservative forms of laser resurfacing techniques, which although are effective, frequently call for a large amount of downtime or recovery. Some dermatologists advocate the use of plasma skin reconstruction or regeneration to treat wrinkles because of its results that are more effective and also because it minimizes downtime. During laser resurfacing an intense ray of laser light energy is aimed at the region where the patient intends to be treated. The laser beam destructs the epidermis or the outer layer of skin. While the laser destroys the epidermis it also heats the underlying skin known as dermis that stimulates the development of new collagen fibers. Once the laser technique is through, the wound when healed reveals new skin formation which is much smoother and tighter.

Another technique that is used to treat volume loss is with the help of dermal fillers. Dermatologists take the help of thick dermal fillers to add volume to sagging cheeks, wrinkled chin, and wrinkles eye regions to substitute the fat lost over time. A more lasting substitute is the grafting of fat that is taken care of, by plastic surgeons.
