What is wrinkle reduction?
Wrinkle reduction treatments specifically target fine lines and wrinkles to reduce their appearance, as well as stimulate collagen production for long-lasting results.
Fine lines and wrinkles appear on our skin as a natural part of aging. Facial movements such as smiling, laughing and frowning also contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
Wrinkle reduction treatments are popular among those who dislike the appearance of their wrinkles and are seeking a more youthful look. They are also suitable for those who wish to prevent fine lines from deepening into wrinkles.
How do wrinkle reduction treatments work?
There are many types of wrinkle reduction treatments, from over-the-counter creams to laser therapy to injectables. For long-lasting effects, the most popular treatments for wrinkle reduction are typically dermal fillers and laser light therapy.
Laser therapy reduces the appearance of wrinkles by sending light pulses to targeted areas of the face. This safe and quick process tightens the skin and smoothes fine lines and creases, giving the face a youthful lift.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are injected beneath the skin to smooth lines and wrinkles while plumping the face.
