In today’s high-stress, fast-paced environment, people can end up aging faster than usual. There are also many toxins in the air and in our foods that aren’t good for our skin and cause wrinkles and fine lines too early. Fortunately, there are many treatments available that are effective and can give us a youthful appearance for years to come.
From surgical procedures to special moisturizers to high-tech anti-aging eye treatment device methods, these treatments and products range from expensive to very affordable and give everyone a chance to fight the cosmetic effects of aging for a natural, healthy look.
First off, people need to realize that practicing healthy habits can go a long way toward preventing premature aging. By not smoking, avoiding too much sun, and using sunscreen, you’ll be preventing damage to your skin that results in wrinkles and fine lines.
Reducing stress, getting enough sleep, and eating healthy will also play a big part in looking young. But when those eye wrinkles start creeping up on you, there are a variety of state-of-the-art treatments that have been proven effective:
Laser skin resurfacing
This new laser technique uses CO2 energy light pulses on problem areas of the skin and around the eyes. It stimulates collagen production while avoiding the damage to the top layer of skin that other laser techniques can cause.
CO2 laser therapy delivers powerful results without downtime or risk of major complications or side effects. The treatment promises fast and long-lasting results but can cost several thousand dollars.
Going beyond Botox, today’s wrinkle injection therapies use a variety of substances that have been dermatologist-approved for filling in fine lines and wrinkles. Rather than stretching the skin tight as happens with facelifts, filler injections plump the skin around wrinkles, filling them in and giving a more natural youthful appearance.
Additionally, the process has been found to encourage the production of collagen while preventing it from breaking down. Some types of fillers can come with the risk of allergic reaction or permanent bumps under the skin; otherwise, most side effects are mild and the effects are long-lasting. This treatment is moderately expensive, costing up to a few hundred dollars.
Sophisticated creams and products
There’s a huge variety of anti-aging products on the market that are using powerful natural ingredients proven to combat the effects of aging. Some of these creams and moisturizers use a coffee berry, recently discovered to have the most powerful anti-aging antioxidant properties around.
Other ingredients in many of these products include peptides and vitamin A. These natural ingredients combat aging at the cellular level, destroying unhealthy cells and encouraging the production of healthy, youthful skin. While the products may seem pricey at $20 to $50 a bottle, they are far less expensive than most treatments at the doctor’s office.
Eye treatment devices
Another relatively new product on the market, the anti-aging eye treatment device uses safe ultrasound waves to gently massage specialized creams into the skin. These creams and moisturizers contain microspheres that are activated with the ultrasound device, letting them penetrate deep into the skin where their anti-aging properties can then set to work repairing and replacing damaged cells that cause wrinkles.
The treatment is fast, with noticeable results within a couple of weeks. Quality devices are also affordable and backed with a warranty.
