Wrinkle treatment using creams and chemical agents
- Retinoic acid- Used as a cream. It helps prevent and treat wrinkles. You need to evaluate the probable dermatological risks and side effects. Some of the possible effects are burns, spots, redness and allergy.
- Glycolic acid peeling – a 20-70% concentration is applied. Applications beyond 20% should be followed by a dermatological control by a doctor. The top layer of the skin is quickly shed, eliminating stains, wrinkles and pores.
- Dermabrasion – A controlled sanding process of the skin. Healing of rash and edema may take several weeks.
- Botulinum toxin – Applied over muscles that create wrinkles; acts by relieving muscle strength.
- Filler applications – Different filler molecules must be used depending on the area of application and depth of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers are mostly preferred (Juvaderm, Teosiyal, Restylane)
The depth of the wrinkles, the location, the doctor’s treatment plan and experience will determine the outcome of the wrinkle treatment.
