Ways to Reduce the Signs of Aging Skin
As we age, our skin ages, too. You can’t stop time—but there are steps you can take to reduce its effects on your skin. Here are seven of the most common anti-aging treatments available. Keep in mind: Most of these anti-aging procedures are considered cosmetic, so they are not covered by insurance.
1. Botulinum Toxin Therapy
More commonly known as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, botulinum toxin injections help reduce frown lines (glabellar lines) in between the eyebrows and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. This treatment works by keeping the muscles in these areas from tightening. There is usually no recovery time for this cosmetic procedure, but it can take up to a week to see the effects. The results typically last about 3 to 4 months.
