Aging is a funny thing. It can seem like one day you’re young and youthful, and the next, you have more wrinkles than you know what to do with. Whether you are in your twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, or older, there’s one thing that’s for certain: you want to look as youthful as possible and getting rid of wrinkles is the easiest way. So, even though you know wrinkles are undesirable, do you know how they are caused and how they can be treated? Let’s take a closer look.
How Are Wrinkles Caused?
When you got your first wrinkles, you may have been shocked, proud, or in complete disbelief. Either way, your first wrinkle was likely caused by making the same facial expression over and over. But, wrinkles can be caused by all sorts of things including sun exposure, medications, dehydration, smoking, the environment, and even genetics. Which means that no matter how hard you try to prevent getting wrinkles, you’re bound to get them somehow.
How Can Wrinkles Be Treated?
Lucky for you, you don’t have to put up with wrinkles— unless you want to, of course. Here at Twin City Plastic Surgery, we have a variety of procedures— both surgical and non-invasive— to treat your fine lines and wrinkles.
- Surgical Options: Depending on your age and how severe your wrinkles are, you may want to consider a surgical procedure as a facelift or brow lift. One of the unique benefits of surgical procedures is that results last longer than on-invasive options.
- Non-Invasive Options: If your wrinkles aren’t as deep or if you just aren’t committed to surgery for whatever reason, then we have a variety of non-invasive options for you to pick from. Non-invasive options include Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), microneedling, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, Botox, and dermal fillers.
