The skin can age in many ways. Nowadays there are many options to combat skin aging.
Smear therapy is an alternative to cosmetic surgery and removes the outer layers of old wrinkled skin and sun damaged skin. Age spots and blemishes can also be treated with it. The treatment is not painful and the skin recovers faster than with cosmetic surgery. The skin is red for up to 10 days after treatment. The skin has completely recovered within 6 weeks.
Electrotherapy stimulates the underlying muscle layers of the face with mild, painless electrical current. Muscle strengthening slows down the aging process. The treatment is expensive. You must be monitored after the first treatments.
The skin is constantly attacked by free radicals, solitary molecules that cause premature skin aging. Vitamins E and C and beta-carotene are antioxidants that help combat the action of free radicals. Antioxidants in creams protect the skin against environmental influences, antioxidants in the form of tablets, fresh fruit or fresh vegetables help neutralize the oxidation process.
High concentration of alpha hydrox acids are used to remove the outer layers of the skin and fine lines and wrinkles. A chemical peel stimulates the cells deep in the skin. It promotes collagen and elastin production. The concentration of acids used varies from 15% in beauty salons to 70% by surgeons and dermatologists. It is a painful process, but the result is much younger and smoother skin.
For wrinkles caused by frowning or sullen looks, line filler injections offer
the perfect solution. Synthetic collagen or the body’s own fat from the hips or thighs is injected into the wrinkles. The result is short-lived.
