Wrinkles are an unavoidable fact of life. You can spend hours on your skin care regimen every week, and eat only the healthiest of foods, but age will eventually catch-up in the form of wrinkles.
There are multiple treatment options available to get rid of wrinkles. These range from topical lotions and lifestyle changes to medicines and surgery. Of these, surgery is, by far, the quickest and the surest way to get rid of wrinkles.
Surgical Solutions for Removing Wrinkles
Thanks to market demand, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons have come up with a number of surgical solutions to get rid of wrinkles. The popular options among these are:
• Injections: Botox and Dysport are two popular injections used to treat wrinkles. These injections relax the muscles in the injected area, leading to a visible reduction in frown lines and crows’ feet. While not precisely surgical, these injections must always be administered by a trained cosmetic surgeon. Results last for several months and you may have to repeat the procedure over time.
• Laser resurfacing: This is a relatively new treatment that relies on shooting lasers at the skin. This pumps up the production of collagen, leading to visible firmer skin. Depending on your skin-type and age, you might need multiple sittings to see positive results. Laser resurfacing is done by cosmetic surgeons as well.
• Cosmetic surgery: The surest way to get rid of wrinkles is through cosmetic surgery. This includes a host of procedures, including face lifts, brow lifts, etc. which focus on surgically “lifting” and tightening the skin. These procedures are mostly minor.
Surgical solutions, while extremely effective, are not for everyone. Please consult your doctor before deciding on any particular procedure.
