There’s actually nothing wrong with most of the so-called anti-wrinkle products on the market today; most of them are formulated using good quality moisturizers with a tiny amount of “active ingredient”.Anyone who notices signs of aging – fine wrinkles around the eyes, either side of the mouth or over the lips, or suffers from dry sagging skin will naturally show a positive initial effect from a renewed cleansing/moisturizing regimen which softens or moisturizes the epidermis, or outermost layer of the skin.
The problem is, the actual aging process is going on underneath the epidermis, in the layer called the dermis where collagen is produced and the skin’s moisture-retaining capability originates.If the creams, gels, or serums don’t deliver this “active ingredient” by penetrating the dermis – as most of them simply cannot – there is no real therapy going on.
For real results that aren’t just “skin deep”, a consultation with a Board-Certified plastic surgeon will have two important benefits for you:first, a plastic surgeon is qualified to analyze your individual skin characteristics and recommend a dermal filler containing a much more potent “active ingredient” that is uniquely suited to your needs.And second, as a surgeon, he is skilled in delivering the “active ingredient” directly into the dermis with the use of carefully placed fine surgical needles where it will have an internal and long-lasting effect.
If you add up all the money you’ve spent on anti-aging products I believe you’ll find that consulting with a true specialist may also turn out to be more cost effective in the long run.
