As one ages, the body tends to become weaker, and more vulnerable to disease. Mental performance such as memory, vision, and hearing may also deteriorate with aging. In addition to the mentioned, the biggest beauty concern that results from aging is the occurrence of wrinkles on the skin.
What are the alternatives for anti aging skin care available today? Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery is an option for people who want to get rid of droopy eyelids or eyebags. The brow lift and face lift are also highly effective in reducing wrinkles, as the procedure involves pulling and tightening of skin and facial muscles.
Injectables are also available. This alternative cost much lesser and saves you from the knife. Collagen, hyaluronic acid, and PMMA microspheres are examples of skin tissue fillers that help smoothen out wrinkles or loose skin. Botox, (Botulinum toxin) is an extremely popular form of injectable wrinkle treatment, as it helps in skin tightening.
Peptide for skin is now the recent high in the cosmetic industry because of its potential for anti aging skin care. They are made of long chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. Protein is an important component in the body for structural support systems of the cells in the body. Proteins are also essential in maintaining tone and elasticity in the skin. Aging, however results in the body reacting slower, so protein production in cells also slow down. Wrinkles will then result when the skin is not able to regenerate newer and healthier cells as fast as before.
Peptides assist the skin by helping produce more proteins such as collagen and elastin, responsible for firmness and skin elasticity. Promising results have been achieved with peptides, thus they are now included in the formulation of facial creams.
