Although crows feet and deep lines are natural signs of aging, some prefer to seek treatments that would minimize or erase these marks. Botox is a popular treatment and has been around for a long time – but it isn’t the only one. There are a variety of remedies available to help you restore your skin to its youthful self.
Modern Treatments for Crows Feet and Lines
Doctors can now use laser treatment tools that utilize the highest technology to help the skin recover from aging. These types of treatments are non-invasive, so there’s no downtime and minimal health risks. Here are a few ideas on what you can do if you’re seeing signs of aging:
- Fractora – Incredibly popular and yields excellent results. This tool uses radiofrequency technology, heating the lower layers of the dermis and stimulating the skin cells that are responsible for keeping your skin youthful. The procedure takes about an hour and should be repeated every few months for maximum results.
- Laser resurfacing – This special machine uses concentrated laser beams that are directed at the skin in rapid pulses. This causes the molecules to break down in the epidermis and slough away. This “peel” helps with lines, wrinkles, dryness, and sunspots. It’s even great for those that are younger and are looking to remove acne scars.
- Skin tightening – Another sign of aging, along with crows feet and deep lines is losing elasticity in your skin. Non-invasive laser treatments help by heating up your skin’s natural stores of collagen. The heat helps them to tighten up. See results after just a few treatments. Thermage, Skin Tyte, and TriPollar are popular tech providers for these treatments. Each one is a little different, so talk to your doctor about the benefits of each type of procedure.
- PicoSure – This new high-tech laser is one of the latest treatments that doctors are using. This piece uses gentler lasers and less heat to stimulate the body’s natural antiaging response. The type of heat applied is gentle, so there’s even less recovery time.
Whatever you decide to do, talk to your plastic surgeon. They will be able to show you photos and explain each procedure so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
Other Anti-Aging Treatments
Botox isn’t the only type of injection you can get to help with your aging skin. Juvederm is popular in the U.S. This injection is a dermal filler with a formula comprised of Hyralaunic Acid, which keeps your skin plump, and smoothes lines and wrinkles around the eyes. There are other types of injectable gels, like Restalyne, Belotero, or Kybella. Each one will have different benefits, so talk to your doctor to see which one you’ll be a perfect candidate for.
