When you start noticing those little tell-tale signs of aging such as fine lines or wrinkles, you know it is the time for a little pick me up treatment. With so many options available how do you know which one is right for you? You certainly narrow it down to the two best wrinkle treatments that are Botox and Laser wrinkle treatments. These two options offer great results without surgery and both have little to no downtime at all.
But which treatment should be preferred over another? This is a tough question. Therefore, we have decided to help you out by discussing both the treatments in this blog.
Botox Wrinkle Treatment
Botox injection is a popular cosmetic anti-aging treatment that has been available for decades. The reason why Botox is considered as a great treatment for wrinkles is that it relaxes the nerves. Once it is injected, it blocks certain nerve signals which make the muscles contract. The muscles then relax and this reduces the wrinkles.
The treatment takes a few minutes to complete which means you can go back to your daily routine immediately after the procedure. Its’ effects however last for about three to six months. You need to undergo the treatment at least twice or thrice a year. It is because after 3 to 6 months the wrinkles will start coming back again as the muscles start moving again.
Laser Wrinkle Treatment
Laser treatment is popular because it addresses various skin conditions such as enlarged pores, brown spots, sun damage, and wrinkles. It works by stimulating the skin to produce new collagen and renew cells.
Patients can return to their normal daily routine immediately after the treatment with a few aftercare instructions. One of the instructions is to protect the skin from the sun by wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen. The treatment has little to no downtime.
The results usually appear gradually as the skin takes some time to repair and renew itself after the laser treatment.
Which treatment is right for you?
Botox and Laser skin resurfacing are two different treatments. Knowing the right treatment for you depends on what your goals are.
If you are looking for a quick fix for wrinkles then Botox will definitely work for you as it will fix them in very little time.
However, if your skin needs a refresher then Laser treatment is the best option for you.
Every patient is different and what works for you might not work for someone else. That is why it is important to sit down with your doctor to come up with a treatment plan which would work best for you and your needs.
