Below we will breakdown the fascinating science behind wiping wrinkles away. Plus, we’ll offer some tips and tricks you can bring into your everyday routine to keep your skin looking young and fresh for years to come.

Non-Invasive Anti-Aging Methods

Sunscreen

Daily sunscreen use is the number one scientifically-proven recommendation to avoid premature skin aging. Sunscreen works to repel harmful UV radiation—which penetrates deep into your skin, breaking down collagen. Even more importantly, sunscreen is clinically proven to help prevent all three of the most common skin cancers: squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, and melanoma. 

Take our advice and start applying sun protection every day. If you can, reapply anytime you are about to enter direct sun exposure. 

Retinol Cream

Another of the most promising at-home methods to reduce wrinkles and promote healthy younger-looking skin is to use a retinol cream in your daily skincare regimen. 

By working deep within your skin, retinol creams increase the production of collagen. Not only that, they stimulate new blood vessel production, which improves skin coloration. Additionally, retinol fades age spots and softens rough patches.

The only “down-side” of retinol is it takes three to six months of usage to begin seeing results with peak results showing at six to 12 months. So don’t give up if you don’t see a change right away.

Medical Cosmetic Anti-Aging Treatments

If you want immediate results, your best option is to rely upon the skills of a master esthetician. With clinical-strength products and advanced techniques, your local medical spa can do some serious heavy lifting in the anti-aging department.

Neurotoxins (Botox® and Dysport®), The Number One Option in America

Injectable neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport are the number one cosmetic procedure in America. Last year alone, over 7,400,000 Americans saw the benefits of these scientific wonder treatments.

How do Botox and Dysport work? These treatments temporarily paralyze the micro-muscles of the face by blocking signals from your nerves—causing wrinkles to relax and soften. 

This is a perfect option for patients hoping to reduce forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

Laser Resurfacing

Utilizing direct, short, concentrated pulsating beams of light—laser resurfacing precisely removes skin layer by layer.

As the area heals, new skin replaces the damaged skin that the lasers removed, revealing refreshed, younger-looking skin.

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

By using your body’s own plasma (which is rich in growth factors), PRP offers radiant, glowing results. Your esthetician will take a small bit of blood, which they will spin to remove the natural plasma. Then, you will receive several micro-injections of this plasma product to replace lost volume or elasticity. Amazingly, this treatment works wonders along the hairline to stimulate hair growth as well. 

PRP naturally, and safely, plumps the skin leaving you looking younger, brighter and fresher. Though you will experience some redness for the first few days, with full results showing around two weeks.
