How You Can Remove Wrinkles and Look Years Younger

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Aging can take a significant toll on the skin, and reducing wrinkles becomes a new goal for many people as we get older.  Sometimes, it can feel as though the process of aging happens overnight and wrinkles suddenly appear.  What can we do to help remove wrinkles and restore our skin to the youthful look that we love?

One of the best ways to eliminate wrinkles is to avoid the risk factors that cause them.  This means trying to quit smoking if you are a smoker.  It also means avoiding spending too much time in the sun without proper protection (a good SPF of at least Factor 15 is a good start) and avoiding the use of tanning beds.  While some of us have engaged in these activities for years, the fact is that after 30, collagen and elastin in the skin start to break down and skin care becomes more important.

 
If you are looking for a way to remove the wrinkles that you already have, there are a couple of options available.  One of the best choices is the use of antioxidants.  Products containing vitamins C & E or acai berry can help reduce wrinkles by reversing damage done by free radicals.  This can also help prevent new wrinkles from forming.  Skin care products containing alpha hydroxy acids are also popular, though the results provided are typically minimal.

There are also a number of cosmetic procedures done to help alleviate wrinkles.  Many patients choose to undergo brow lifts, chemical peels, or laser resurfacing.  Face lifts involve making an incision at the hairline and pulling skin upward, while peels and resurfacing actually remove the top layer of skin.  Although extremely expensive and painful, be warned that any results seen are only temporary, especially if you are still exposed to the risk factors that cause wrinkles. Make sure you talk through your concerns with a good doctor if you are considering having any surgical procedures done. Also remember that cosmetic surgery is still surgery - it is not a beauty treatment with no risks. Even with modern medical procedures, surgery is always a risk to your life if you have unforeseen complications. It should never be taken lightly.
 
Getting rid of wrinkles is a tricky process.  The best choice is a healthy lifestyle and the use of quality skin care products.  We all want to look younger, and making minor changes in our lives can certainly help us do so without resorting to surgery or expensive alternative medicines.
