The Facts on Anti-Aging Creams

Anti aging creams

Do you look in the mirror and often worry about those fine lines and wrinkles? The first and easiest solution most women think of is anti-aging cream. Anti-aging creams make alluring promises but for most of us, the benefits are limited.

Why: Individual skin chemistry varies.  This means:

  • There’s no guarantee that the same cream that did wonders for your best friend or favorite celebrity will work for you …at all.
  • For the same reason, cost is no guarantee of quality or efficacy; a pricy cream might work well for some, or it might offer results no better than the baseline hydrating effects of a generic-brand moisturizer.
  • On top of all this, the benefits of many non-physician-strength creams often disappear completely as soon as you discontinue using the cream.
  • Physician strength, creams offer advantages, but without a doctor’s assessment and recommendation for you specifically, that “physician strength” label on over-the-counter creams may not mean anything

So what should you do to get rid of the frustrating wrinkles and look young again? If you have the budget, surgery is a more effective and worthwhile investment to reverse many of the effects of premature aging.

Injectables: A Great Alternative

There are solid, scientific reasons why facelift surgery and injectable fillers are still the gold standards to correct the appearance of most facial aging signs, from fine lines and wrinkles to deeper facial folds caused by fat migration and loose facial muscles. One of the reasons facial anti-aging creams often don’t live up to their claims of reducing wrinkles is that many of the causes of facial aging happen below the surface, at the subdermal and muscular level, where facial creams cannot penetrate. If you are seriously looking for a way to correct facial aging signs, dermal fillers such as JUVEDERM and Restylane definitely are worth considering.
