Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

What it is and what it is for?


Changes within the skin's layers show up on the surface as signs of aging. However, there are ways to delay this process. Anti-wrinkle treatments can be started from the age of 25, with creams and daily care.
This anti-aging care promotes a younger skin, since they reduce, attenuate and prevent the signs of skin aging, such as: sagging, wrinkles, fine lines and photoaging.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Anti-wrinkle treatments can have several ingredients, the most effective and common being the following:
Ceramides, lipids that keep the skin barrier strong and healthy, sealing moisture in the skin, which promotes intense hydration.
Collagen, one of the most important proteins for the skin, as it strengthens and strengthens it.
Glycolic acid, which has exfoliating benefits, which causes the elimination of dead cells in the skin, smoothing it out. Furthermore, it also increases the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin, attenuating the signs of aging.
Lactic acid, a milder ingredient compared to glycolic acid. That is, it also has exfoliating benefits, but acts less aggressively. This ingredient promotes a more uniform and radiant skin.
Hyaluronic acid, a great moisturizer that helps increase skin elasticity and fill in fine lines.
Vitamin C, an important component, given that it is a great antioxidant, helps to neutralize free radicals harmful to the skin, helps to reduce blemishes and discoloration and also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin.
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, an ingredient that neutralizes fine lines and wrinkles, increasing the amount of collagen created naturally in the body.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


There are several types of anti-wrinkle treatments, all of which have as their main objective to act against the signs of aging.
Anti-wrinkle creams and lotions can be moisturizing, with sun protection, or both. Moisturizers aim to fight wrinkles by providing moisture, making wrinkles and fine lines less visible, such as for example Ultra Smart Pro-Collagen Enviro-Adapt Day Cream by Elemis.
Sun protection creams and lotions fight the signs of aging by softening and nourishing the skin, while protecting it from photoaging, which is a major cause of signs of aging on the skin. Hyaluron-Filler Day Cream SPF30 by Eucerin it's a great reference.
Acglicolic Classic Facial Cream SPF15 by Sesderma is an example of the combination of the two actions, that is, moisturize and protect the skin.
Serums and fluids can vary in texture, but are usually lighter than a cream and, as such, penetrate the skin more quickly and are more suitable for providing potent anti-aging ingredients. Like for example Pure Vitamin C10 by La Roche Posay and Rénergie Multi-Lift Ultra Anti-Ageing Fluid by Lancôme.
Emulsions are slightly denser than fluids, but never reach the consistency of the cream, and have the same objectives as the previous ones, the only difference being their texture; for example, Cell-Shock Total Resurface Emulsion by Swissline.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


The packaging of anti-wrinkle treatments can have a wide range, always depending on its type, that is, whether it is cream, serum, etc.
In the case of creams, the most common packaging is jar, but we can also find them in tubes. Its most frequent amount is 50ml.
In lotions, packages are usually dozers, but there may be exceptions. Its most frequent size ranges from 100ml to 200ml.
Serums can vary from dozers to droppers, the most common amount being 30ml.
The most frequent packages of fluids are dozers and the quantity is 50ml.
Finally, emulsions are also generally dosing packs and their quantity varies between 30ml, 50ml and 100ml.


What to take into account when choosing an anti-wrinkle treatment?


When choosing an anti-wrinkle care, it is very important to assess your skin type and see if the treatment you want corresponds to it. Otherwise, it may cause adverse effects to those desired.
Something you should take into account is your age group, as anti-aging care is formulated for the different degrees of skin aging, which vary according to age.
In your 20s the important thing is to protect your skin well from the sun and moisturize it intensely. With this, it is best to opt for anti-wrinkle care with antioxidant ingredients, vitamin C and with sun protection filters.
In the age group of 30, the first wrinkles, spots, flaccidity and expression lines begin to appear. The ideal will be to choose moisturizing anti-aging care and rich in antioxidants, whitening formulas, with vitamins C and E that are stimulators of collagen production. It can also include retinol, which increases the skin's renewal capacity.
At 40 years of age, the skin becomes increasingly dry, which generates fragility, flaccidity and increased spots and small lines. At this stage choose anti-aging treatments that provide the necessary hydration to the skin. You should also choose to care with ingredients that stimulate the skin's natural collagen, and ingredients that improve the texture of your skin, such as retinol.
After 50 years of age, the skin becomes thinner and drier, there is a loss of tone, wrinkles are deeper and flaccidity is more intense. In these cases, it is best to choose to maintain the deep hydration of the skin to keep it looking healthier, that is, care with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, retinol, vitamin C and vitamin E will certainly be the best choice.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


In order to improve your experience with an eye contour serum, the most important, as mentioned earlier, is the choice of the product. That is, assess the needs of your skin and look for a product adapted to it.
Sun exposure is a major cause of all signs of aging. Any anti-wrinkle treatment does not work unless you protect yourself from the sun. Thus, before applying your anti-aging care, apply a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF30.
When applying your anti-wrinkle care, make sure you have cleaned your face thoroughly and apply it gently so as not to disturb the skin.


What are the pros and cons of using anti-wrinkle treatments?


Anti-wrinkle treatments provide several benefits, especially for those who already feel tired and very aged skin, but we must bear in mind that they can also cause some disadvantages.
In certain cases, allergic reactions can be triggered by these products. In such cases, it will be important to check the composition of the product and make sure that none of them could be harmful to the skin.
Therefore, in order to not generate adverse effects, if you have any skin problem you should always consult specialists so as to be advised on the best type of treatment.
On the other hand, depending on the purpose of the treatment, it can bring numerous benefits, such as: increasing the firmness of the skin; return the necessary elasticity to the skin; provide intense hydration to the skin, preventing it from drying out; combat photoaging; uniform skin tone; attenuate pigmentation; promote shine to the skin; fight the signs of aging, namely wrinkles, fine lines and sagging.
