For many people, mostly women, wrinkles are an unsightly cosmetic problem. Therefore, there are various methods of preventing wrinkles, or reducing or even removing them.

Anti-wrinkle creams

Many cosmetic companies advertise Anti-wrinkle creams and promise a significant decrease after just a few weeks. Nevertheless, the effect is controversial. First of all, the regular maintenance of the skin even before wrinkles will be carried out. The skin remains firm and elastic if it is cleaned and adequately cleaned regularly humidity is supplied. In many Antiaging creams is advertised with certain ingredients such as vitamin C, Retinol, Collagen, Coenzyme Q, Hyaluronic acid and Antioxidants. The question is whether the substances are even absorbed by the skin. It is believed that collagen and Hyaluronic acid cannot penetrate the skin due to their molecular size. Better be against it vitamin C and Antioxidantswho help free radicalsthat have a damaging effect on cells from the skin. There are now very well developed anti-wrinkle creams that contain complexes with which the ingredients can be better absorbed by the skin.

Another method to reduce wrinkles is to inject the wrinkles with them Botox. Botox is a neurotoxic poison, which from the bacteria called Clostridium botulinum is won. The Neurotoxin prevents the transmission of the excitation line from Neurons and therefore leads to a weakness of the Musculature. This effect is used in the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles. The engagement is a minimally invasive procedurewho is in a doctor's office can be carried out on an outpatient basis. A competent doctor injects a few milliliters under the skin. Wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes and drooping lines at the corners of the mouth are particularly suitable for this application. It has a very good effect on wrinkles that are not yet too deep. Fine and superficial wrinkles may possibly disappear completely with the treatment. However, since the effect wears off after a few months, it must be repeated regularly so that the desired effect is retained. When used correctly, they are not difficult Side effects expected. Injection can cause a Redness and swelling come from the irritation of the skin. In some cases, minor ones emerge Bruising at the Injection site. This can be done by Cool the affected skin area should be avoided. When injecting near the Eyelids Overdosing or incorrect use can result in a drooping lid.

Wrinkle injection with hyaluronic acid

A method similar to that Botox offers a Injection of the wrinkles With Hyaluronic acid. This is a endogenous substancewhich are predominantly between cells in the Extracellular matrix is located. The Hyaluronic acid binds water, causing the tissue to increase in volume and swell. This effect one makes oneself in the treatment of the wrinkles advantage. With a thin needle, preparations are usually between one and three percent Hyaluronic acid included, given into the folds. This increases the content of the substance in the tissue. More water should be attracted so that the furrows that are created by the folds are filled again. The treatment is usually very well tolerated because it is an endogenous substance. The use of mostly very thin cannulas hardly causes any pain. There may be minor bleeding and swelling, which will go away after a few hours to days. Here, too, the timely cooling after the injection can be greater Bruising avoid. Since the body breaks down the hyaluronic acid again after a while, the application must also be repeated after four to twelve months.

Face lifting

For many people, aging and the resulting increase in wrinkles is perceived as very annoying. In order to achieve a significant rejuvenation and tightening of the skin, often only an operation can help. The methods used are the face lifting or face lifting according to SMAS (Sub Muscular Aponeurotic System).

A facelift is a procedure in which the tightening is limited to the upper layer of the skin. It is also known as softlifting. The face lifting, on the other hand, takes place at the level of the muscle layer, i.e. below the skin layer.

Furthermore, a distinction is made between a brow lift and a forehead lift or a face lift with a neck lift. The latter method includes lifting drooping cheeks, the double chin and the neck area.
The aim of the eyebrow lift is to raise the eyebrows. This is said to result in a more open and amazed expression on your face. At the same time, the forehead is tightened. With this method, only small cuts are made in the area of ​​the hair. The scars are not visible afterwards. The procedure is carried out with the help of endoscopes. Another advantage, because small, invisible cuts are completely sufficient. Finally, the lifting of the eyebrows and the tightening of the forehead are carried out in a layer in which no important nerves and vessels run. This is to prevent important structures from being injured during the operation, which could lead to complications.

However, minor bruising and swelling may occur after the procedure. In general, however, the risk of infection is estimated to be lower than with a face lift. The view is then more open again. The entire face looks fresher and younger. With this approach, the effect should be long-lasting. The procedure is usually carried out on an outpatient basis in a clinic. The pain should be very little. Then you wear a bandage for one to two days and you should avoid sport and sauna sessions at first in order to reduce the risk of infection and not endanger the healing of the scars.

After about three days, the patient can wash their hair normally again. It is important to prepare well for such interventions. The most important thing for a satisfactory result is detailed advice from a specialist. The most suitable method for the patient should be determined in one or more consultations. In a conversation, patients should always have the surgeon show them the results, i.e. before and after pictures of procedures that have already been carried out. On the one hand, patients can see which effects can be achieved by the various methods and how well the doctor is doing his job. It is certainly not a disadvantage to seek advice from several specialized clinics.

A somewhat smaller operation, but one that makes the whole face look more alert and younger, is eyelid correction. It is carried out on an outpatient basis and costs around € 2000 per eye.

Ultrasound against wrinkles

Another method to reduce existing wrinkles and delay the appearance of new ones is to treat them with Ultrasonic. Wrinkles appear in deeper ones Layers of skin. Means Ultrasonic the deep cells should also be reached and stimulated. The area between the cells is particularly important for firm skin Collagen. Its production is to be increased through the use of ultrasonic waves. In addition, the treatment can still Hyaluronic acid applied to the skin.

This is intended to fill in the wrinkles again, which has a smoothing effect on the skin. Treatment is from a beautician carried out. The cost per application is around 100 euros. There are now also small ones Ultrasound equipment for domestic use that can be operated by yourself.
