Defying wrinkles around the eyes or lips, age spots and sagging skin is nowadays relatively easier

The market offers numerous non invasive treatments, the most common ones include:

Botox injections are used to soften wrinkle by provide a temporary fix. They contain a purified version of the toxin from botulinum bacteria. In tiny doses, this toxin relaxes the clenched facial muscles that cause crow’s feet, frown lines, and the like. The injections take only a few minutes and cause minimal discomfort.

These treatments usually take 3 to 7 days to reach their full effect. The result is smoother skin in the treated area. As the muscles slowly regain the ability to contract, lines and wrinkles reappear. To maintain the desired effect, injections must be repeated every 4 to 6 months.

Chemical peels use an acid solution to exfoliate the outer layers of skin. The peels are mostly used to reduce age spots, fine lines around the mouth and eyes, acne scars, and wrinkles caused by sun damage or ageing. Application can take as little as 15 minutes and may cause some stinging and irritation.

Over the next few days, the upper layers of skin will peel, revealing newer, younger and smoother looking skin. Deeper peels may cause swelling and crusting but ultimately have more dramatic results. Moderate to deep peels may be repeated in six to twelve months.

Cosmetic fillers are substances that help smooth facial wrinkles and folds by bulking up the tissue underneath. The fillers are injected directly into problem areas. Collagen, a natural firming fiber, is the oldest and best-known cosmetic filler.

Newer alternatives include hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, polymethylmethacrylate beads, and ordinary fat harvested from the patient’s own thigh or belly. The results can last nine months or longer.
