The best time to fight wrinkles is before you see them

The best time to fight wrinkles is before you see themNo amount of beauty products or visits to the dermatologist can replace the overall benefit of a healthy diet, regular exercise, limited sun exposure and regular use of moisturizer. However, even with the best of intentions and a well-executed plan, time does begin to catch up with us. Here are three ways modern science can help to keep you looking young.

Oxygen Facial

Oxygen facials don’t come cheap, but many in Hollywood swear by the results – Jennifer Aniston and Madonna to name only two. The idea behind the treatment is that by replacing the oxygen that your skin cells are lacking (environment and age both play a factor in limiting the amount of oxygen that actually gets to the skin). Proponents of the treatment claim that their skin is rejuvenated, their circulation is improved and their skin is left hydrated, exfoliated and luminous.

Botox Injections

Botox gets a lot of press because, when done properly it can yield fantastic results. If you are interested in getting Botox injections, first find a reputable doctor – preferably one whose work you’ve seen. Poll your friends and acquaintances. Gone is the stigma attached to Botox. Almost everyone has tried it and most will tell you how it went. Although primarily a treatment for existing wrinkles, some research points to the possibility that Botox may actually delay the onset of wrinkles.

Non-Ablative Skin Rejuvenation

Sometimes called an epifacial, this treatment is a combination of light therapy and skin resurfacing that can result in some fantastic results. Women who have gone through these treatments have reported that acne has cleared up, fine lines and wrinkles have disappeared, pigmentation has vanished and large pores appear smaller. The treatment is short (only 15-20 minutes in most cases) and does result in some discomfort, likened by some to the feeling of mild sunburn. Of course, results like these do not come cheap, but most who offer the treatment also offer financing options as well.
