These include too much exposure to the sun and dehydration. Use of different facial muscles also causes lines on the face. Exposure to the pollution in the environment also plays a big part as it strips the skin from collagen and elastin which are structural proteins critical for the firmness and natural elasticity of the skin.

It is an age old cliché that prevention is better than cure. It is better to slow down this inevitable process of appearance of fine lines and wrinkles then to get them treated at an early age. Some simple changes in the lifestyle can certainly push back their appearance by several years.

It is also important to take steps to counter the ill effects of pollution in the surroundings. Make sure that you get enough of your daily vitamin requirement.

Treatment options for fine lines and wrinkles

There are numerous treatment options that are available for the purpose of getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. We shall look into them in the following lines briefly.

Topical Creams

These are the first line of defense against the fine lines and wrinkles. There are many options in this regard and one can choose from a list of potential creams. The main ingredients of these creams are based on Vitamin C, Alpha-Hydroxy Acids, Pentapeptides and growth factors. All these ingredients target the fine lines and wrinkles from a different angle and generally bring good results.

It is best to consult a dermatologist before you start using these products to ensure that you know which one is the best option for you. Do keep in mind that these creams will need to be applied for a long time in order to achieve the desired results. Usually the side effects from these products are mild.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

It is a very effective method for getting rid of skin laxity. Shafts of laser bore tiny holes in the top layer of the skin in order to resurface the damaged top layer with a healthier one. As the damaged skin crusts away, healthier skin replaces it over the next few days. The treatment also gives a boost to the level of collagen and elastin production to further help the cause.

The treatment possess few side effects and generally no downtime. Some pain is involved in the process and to numb it down, topical anesthetics are generally applied prior to the treatment. To achieve the best results, five to six treatment sessions are sufficient in most cases. Results obtained from laser skin resurfacing are long term.

Microdermabrasion

It is another highly effective treatment options that works with spraying tiny crystals on to the affected areas of the skin in order to exfoliate it. A handheld device is used for this purpose. The exfoliated skin and the used crystals are then collected into a chamber with the help of a suction pump. This process jump starts the healing in the skin and allows healthier skin to come up on top. Collagen production too is improved.

The skin continues to improve over the next few days as the skin gets firmer with more and more collagen being produced. The treatment has very light and temporary side effects and there is no downtime involved. To get rid of the fine lines and wrinkles in the desired manner, numerous sessions of Microdermabrasion Dubai are needed.

Chemical Peels

These are acidic solution that are available in drugstores with a prescription in different strengths. These are applied to the skin in order to resurface it; thus allowing healthier skin to replace the damaged top layer. It also boosts the production of collagen in the skin to make it firmer.

The results vary with the type of peels that have been used.Lighter peels need to be applied several times before the desired results can be obtained while deep peels are applied only once due to their harsh nature. There is some downtime with the more severe peels. Anesthetics may be used during the administration of the peels.

Since the chemical peels are easily available, it is quite tempting to apply them yourself. However, it is beater to leave it to the professional in a proper setting since the risk of burning the skin is almost eradicated when an expert applies them.

Botox

Although it is a lethal neurotoxin, it is quite useful and fairly safe to use for a number of cosmetic procedures. Botox works by inhibiting the movement of the muscle underneath the skin where wrinkles are forming. Once the injection has been administered, it takes a few days to take full effect.

The treatment offers temporary results which can last for several months after which the treatment will need to be repeated. There are very minor side effects and apart from pin pricks, there is no pain. It is ideal that you consult with your doctor prior to getting the treatment since certain medical conditions rule out a person as a candidate for Botox.

Dermal Fillers

These work well for deep etched wrinkles. Fillers are mostly made from collagen and natural fat. These are injected into the site of the wrinkles to improve the condition in the given area. Over the next few days, the condition of this area visibly improves.

Like Botox, dermal fillers too are a temporary solution. Depending upon the nature of the filler, their effect can last from a few months to up to two years. The treatment is mostly painless and there are very few side effects. It can be repeated once the effects of the original treatment wear off.
