We all know that ageing often comes with fine lines and wrinkles. And, while these are a natural part of getting older, you may wish to retain your smooth complexion that little bit longer. If that’s the case, here are seven wrinkle treatments that are sure to keep your skin looking supple, youthful, and glowing.

Some of these wrinkle treatments are ideal for helping you get the best skincare at home, while others can be found at an aesthetic skincare clinic, such as Helen Hunt Aesthetics.

An Effective Anti-Ageing Skincare Routine

It might sound obvious, but establishing a good anti-ageing skincare routine can prevent fine lines and deeper wrinkles from appearing prematurely. Ensuring you take care of your complexion on a daily basis will keep it healthy and youthful. Remembering to cleanse, tone and moisturise twice daily is a great way to build your routine.

Protection from the sun is essential for keeping your complexion young and healthy, so apply SPF protection every day, topping up with extra if you go out in the sun.

Anti-Ageing Creams

As part of your home skincare routine, incorporate creams that are specially formulated to target the signs of ageing. Look for anti-ageing creams, that contain Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic and lactic acid.

Medical-Grade Skincare Ingredients – Retinol

Other excellent ingredients for keeping wrinkles at bay include medical-grade skincare solutions, like retinol.

Retinol can boost your skin health by increasing cell turnover and improving your skin’s firmness. It also reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Chemical Peels

If you want to give your complexion a new lease of life, why not consider a chemical peel? Skin peels remove any dead or damaged cells on the surface of your skin, revealing a fresh, youthful skin layer beneath. Chemical peels also stimulate your skin to produce new skin cells and collagen, which can reduce signs of ageing.

Dermal Fillers

Another effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles is dermal fillers, which create fullness and can fill lines and wrinkles. These safe fillers are ideal for targeting lines around the mouth. Dermal fillers contain a substance related to similar hyaluronic acid, a compound our bodies naturally produce to keep our skin plump and full of volume.

Profhilo and Sunekos

Profhilo and Sunekos are both injectable treatments that boost your skin from the inside out.

Profhilo (also known as bio-remodelling) uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin, to give your complexion a plump, firm appearance. It stimulates your skin to produce collagen and elastin, both of which are vital in smoothing out wrinkles.

Similarly, Sunekos improves your skin’s firmness and texture in as little as four weeks. Sunekos contains hyaluronic acid and amino acids of collagen and elastin to give a plump, hydrated appearance. It’s a particularly effective option for younger skin, for those who wish to slow down the ageing process.

Light Therapy

Low-level light therapy (also known as photo biostimulation) uses LED light to increase the body’s adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production — an energy-carrying molecule found in all living cells. In turn, this increases collagen and elastin production, improving the appearance of wrinkles. Light therapy can also treat acne and muscle pain.

A Tailored Approach

Everybody’s skin is unique, and we all need different skincare treatments and solutions. That’s why, at Helen Hunt Aesthetics, we can tailor our treatments to your needs.
