Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? That’s right, we walk around everyday with our biggest organ exposed, putting all kinds of stress on it with pollutants, UV rays, and dirt. 

As we age, our skin starts to show signs of this wear and tear through the appearance of wrinkles. But did you know this doesn’t necessarily have to be the case? 

Did you know you can take preventive measures to reduce wrinkles? What about treatments to reverse signs of aging that have already occurred? Yes, we have a solution for that, too. 

Bottom line: If you want to show off beautiful skin that is smooth, vibrant, and youthful, your goals are entirely possible with professional help from the team at Derm.ca. Read on to learn how we can help with wrinkle reduction. 

Causes of Wrinkles

To begin, let’s examine why wrinkles happen in the first place. 

As you age, your skin naturally starts to wrinkle because of a loss of elasticity. There are plenty of things you can do to reduce these signs of aging. 

Some ways to reduce wrinkles include: 

  • Reducing your exposure to UV light and/or using proper sun protection 
  • Avoiding smoking 
  • Proper nourishment (i.e., eating healthy and drinking plenty of water)
  • A good skincare routine (cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate, facials, etc.)
  • Rest/sleep 
  • Stress reduction 

If you take care of yourself with good habits and routines, you will likely find that you have fewer wrinkles and look more youthful as you age. 

At What Age Should You Start Thinking About Anti-Wrinkle Treatments?

Preventative care early on in your 20s can make a significant difference in the state of your skin as you enter your 30s, 40s, and beyond. 

You don’t have to start with targeted treatments like fractional laser wrinkle reduction, but thinking about non-surgical wrinkle reduction is a good strategy. A great serum or anti-aging facial can be of great benefit down the road. 

Our best piece of advice would be to work up to various treatments depending on how you personally feel about the state of your skin. For instance, if you are in your late 20s and feel good about your skin, continue your skincare routine. There is no need for cosmetic treatments. 

On the other hand, if you’ve entered your 30s and wrinkles pop up that you would like to treat, start thinking about anti-wrinkle treatments like Botox and beyond. 

Know Your Treatment Options 

You have no shortage of options when it comes to wrinkle reduction. Here are a few of the most effective ones: 

  • Juvederm: One of the most popular dermal filler options, Juvederm fills in lines and plumps up the skin 
  • Botox: A pain-free injection that prevents muscles from moving, Botox doesn’t remove the wrinkle, but by preventing certain facial expressions, wrinkles are temporarily diminished 
  • Chemical peel: A resurfacing technique, a chemical peel safely “burns” off the top layer of skin so new, fresh, wrinkle-free skin can grow back in its place
  • Dermaplaning: Using an exfoliating blade, we remove the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresh, vibrant skin 
  • DermaSweep: Using patented bristle-tip technology, we remove the top layer of skin to reveal a more uniform layer of skin beneath the surface 
  • Mesotherapy: Utilizes tiny microinjections of vitamins, enzymes, and plant extracts to promote the growth of fresh skin 

Choosing the best wrinkle reduction treatment will be entirely dependent on your needs, goals, and budget.
