There are many wrinkle reduction options at our disposal if we wish to look young and radiant for some more time. As we age, the collagen production in our skin dips, and the skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag. This is one of the reasons behind skin folds, ridges, etc., which form around the nose and the mouth. Every time we frown or smile, our skin contracts and expands, causing small creases on the surface which are very prominent around the forehead, lips, etc.

Treatment

Microdermabrasion
This treatment technique uses diamond abrasion or crystals to remove dead skin, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. A dermatologist will use a wand which has a diamond tip or aluminum oxide crystals as part of the treatment. Microdermabrasion is considered as an effective treatment for wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and forehead.

Chemical Peels
Dermatologists use chemical peels as they are available in different formulations to suit individual skin type. There are several over the counter peels that you get in the market which proclaim to help you get rid of wrinkles. Other peels like Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) are used under the supervision of dermatologists and the treatment takes about 1-2 hours. These treatments are effective against damaged skin, and are quite affordable, considering other treatment options.

Laser Skin Resurfacing
You can also opt for laser skin resurfacing, as it is a popular treatment option. The technique is easier on the skin as compared to the abrasion method used in microdermabrasion, and also requires a considerable lesser amount of healing time. Laser skin resurfacing removes the damaged layer of skin, and also stimulates the growth of collagen, helping you get rid of wrinkles quickly.

Home Remedies
Try applying some egg white on the skin as it has several vitamins that will help rejuvenate your skin. Another effective home remedy is applying lemon juice on the skin for 5-10 minutes, 2-3 times a day. For wrinkle free skin care you can also rub the core of a pineapple on your face leaving it on for 10-15 minutes, and then washing it off with water. Massaging your skin with flax seed or castor oil before going to bed will also help.

Over-the-counter Creams
There are several over-the-counter creams that you could use to treat wrinkles. These creams have ingredients like vitamin C and vitamin E that will help rejuvenate your skin and increase collagen production. If you are not sure which anti-wrinkle skin care product to buy look at the ingredients in the cream, and also check out the manufacturers website for the scientific reason behind the use of these ingredients. This will give you a fair idea about which cream is better, but for the most part it is a trial and error method.

It is advisable to talk to a qualified health care professional before you decide on choosing a wrinkle reduction cream. If you want to avoid wrinkles, try to maintain a healthy lifestyle as stress, smoking, drinking, unhealthy sleep patterns, etc., contribute to skin damage and formation of wrinkles.
