For those of us who smoke and have prolonged exposure to the sun, there may be premature development of wrinkles, sunburn, age spots and even skin cancer. Others may have skin problems from injury to the face such as scars, keloids and bruises. As we age, the tissues underneath the skin lose their elasticity and there is loss of collagen. This results in sagging skin and lines and wrinkle formation. These lines and wrinkles on the forehead, cheeks, neck and brows are often worsened with certain facial motions such as chewing, laughing and smiling.
For many young people skin problems develop as part of their growing process. Some end up with a worse demonstration of this process while others do not suffer the same fate. This includes acne, freckles, and patches of skin discoloration, birthmarks, irregular texture of skin, rosacea and pearly penine pales. For people who develop anguish at their wrinkles, loose skin and tear trough lines, the good thing is that there are treatments available.
Cosmetic surgery can do wonders for almost any type of skin imperfection but the consumer also has to be realistic and practical. First there is no cure for aging and most treatments offer a temporary cure, which may vary from a few months to a few years. For wrinkles and fine lines, there is Botox, which can produce a wrinkle free face that will last a few months. For those with aging spots, rough skin, scars and fine lines, Fractional laser skin resurfacing can produce superb aesthetic results that can last for several years.
For those who can afford it, there are many types of Dermal fillers , which can also get rid of lines and wrinkles. In addition, the fillers can be used to enhance the lips and make them luscious and erotic.
Another option for sagging skin and wrinkles are the various types of facelifts procedures. The facelift surgery can be done with tiny incisions under anesthesia. The facelift procedures can tighten skin, remove the lines and wrinkles and produce a smoother, younger looking face that will last many years.
Depending on the type of skin condition you have, the treatment may vary. Affordability should also be a consideration as some procedures are more costly than others. No matter what cosmetic procedure you undergo, bear in mind that you may need a touch up once or twice a year to maintain the wrinkle-free face.
