Want to know about wrinkle treatments in the Philippines? You might be on holiday and fancy giving yourself a bit of pampering, or you might be looking at cheaper alternatives to turning back the hands of time rather than forking out for expensive procedures at home. Whatever the reason we can help.
Yes – some of them are very effective, but it all depends on what you want, and what expectations you have. You must remember that we’re all individuals and our bodies react to things differently – and even wrinkles are different and can’t all be treated the same – what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another.
Another factor you must take into account are environmental factors, such as damage from sun, pollution or smoking, as well as your own genetics, as these can all play a part in the effectiveness of any wrinkle treatments. That said, your skin will probably benefit from many of these treatments, so don’t surrender to old age – perk up your skin and it’ll probably make you feel more invigorated too.
Any treatments you can get at home, you’ll find you can get in the Philippines too. Treatments can be categorized as surgical or non-surgical treatments, although in truth it is hard to distinguish between some of them these days! To keep it simple, surgical treatments are generally those that require going under the knife.
Most wrinkle treatments are for the face – this is the part of our bodies that the world sees all the time. The facelift is still the most radical of the surgical procedures, but modern surgery has moved on and the facelift isn’t your only option. Now, mini-lifts or lower facelifts can target specific areas without having to go the whole hog. Similarly, blepharoplasty, brow lifts, neck lifts and facial contouring can all correct problems in a local area, often with very effective results.
Wrinkle treatments for the can include butt lifts, arm lifts, thigh lifts and tummy tucks. In fact, anything that stretches the skin effectively removes wrinkles.
If you don’t want to go the full monty with surgery then there are a lot of non-surgical options which can give good results, and sometimes with very little downtime. Botox and dermal fillers, like Juvederm or Restylane are the frontrunners in this regard – taking only minutes to do, with little or no side-effects and results which last between 3 months and a year.
Other treatments include laser treatments, microdermabrasion and chemical peels which resurface, exfoliate and polish to reveal younger, newer skin.
