As people age, it’s common to see changes in their skin. Age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles are but normal signs of aging. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you should go on looking your age. There are new technologies and cosmetic innovations, among them for wrinkle reduction, to help you feel and look younger than you actually are.
Whether they are fine or deep-set, wrinkles come about with changes in the skin’s elasticity. Put in another way, as you age your skin becomes thinner due to the decreased production of collagen. External factors such as sun exposure and smoking also play a part in hastening the skin’s aging process. While prevention or delaying the aging process is the best remedy for wrinkles, it can still be treated with the help of cosmetic intervention.
Lasers vs. Chemical Peels
Two of the most common treatments available for wrinkle removal are lasers and chemical peels. Depending on the results you want and the advice of your doctor, one treatment may be more beneficial for you.
Generally, chemical peels vary in their potency and can be categorized as light, medium, and deep. When it comes to wrinkles, light or superficial peels may yield insignificant results while deeper peels come with greater risk for side effects such as scarring and changes in skin color. They can also be uncomfortable.
Like chemical peels, lasers are minimally invasive and quick. However, they come with the advantage of being almost painless. There’s practically no downtime involved for those who undergo laser treatment, which is convenient for individuals with busy schedules, as well as those who can only squeeze a short amount of time for cosmetic services.
Here at Live Gorgeous OC, our patented wrinkle removal treatment, Matrix, a fractionated laser, can treat those deep-set wrinkles, smoker’s lines, and even tighten the skin under the chin. Quick and painless, you’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated in a matter of a few short sessions.
If laser isn’t viable for treating your wrinkles, we also have other cosmetic technologies available such as ReFirme which is powered by Elõs technology. ReFirme is a wrinkle reduction treatment that combines electrical and optical energy. Similar to Matrix, it’s also a non-invasive laser treatment that can improve your skin’s laxity and tighten it as a result.
