ANTIAGING PRODUCTS: ANTI-WRINKLE CREAMS
The latest generation of skin rejuvenation and skin
care creams have progressed significantly, with many
now being highly rated by dermatologists and users alike.
Prior to this, the only real anti-wrinkle option was
a combination of Botox
injections and dermal fillers. Acceptance of these treatments
has been constrained due to the high costs and the controversy
surrounding the botox Botulinum Toxin. Wrinkle free
skin is now available to all, at a reasonable cost,
and administered by the user at home.
Daily, non-toxic, injection-free substitutes for Botox
are providing similar effects. These simple creams and

caused by excessive pressure of the facial muscles.
"Crow's feet", forehead lines, smile lines,
and other areas on the face can appear much smoother
after a twice-daily application.
What Causes Wrinkles?
Wrinkles are caused by many factors as we age.
- The epidermis, the outer layer, thins with age
- The dermal layer, the second layer decreases in
collagen and the elastin fibers that provide elasticity
wear out causing the skin to wrinkle and sag
- In the subcutaneous layer the fat cells get smaller
with age, leading to more noticeable wrinkles and
sagging as the fat cells can no longer replace the
damage from the other layers. The end result - increased

Expected Anti-Wrinkle Results
Results of using the latest advances in skin creams
vary from person to person. No product produces ‘overnight’
effects, but visible differences in skin condition should
be evident in 4-8 weeks.
For best results consult with a skin care professional
for a thorough skin analysis. Skin condition and problems
vary significantly between persons, so to avoid wasting
precious time and money, ensure you are investing in
the most appropriate product for your skin type.
Using any new skin care product may cause your skin
to react to the ingredients. This may result in irritation,
redness, dryness or a mild breakout. This should only
last for the first 3-5 days; if longer, it is recommended
you discontinue use and consult a skin care professional.
Alternatives to Anti-wrinkle Creams
Faster results require professional cosmetics procedures
such as laser treatments, injections and Dermabrasion.
The downside is that they can be rather uncomfortable
and very costly. Such treatments are usually done in
conjunction with pre and post treatment use of skin
care products. For more information on Skin Rejuvenation
