Anti Wrinkle Treatment
Wrinkles are the lines and creases that form in your skin as a normal process of getting older. As we age, the skin's inner layer 'dermis', begins to thin and the skin's cells divide more slowly, which starts to affect the stretchiness and structure. The skin makes less oil, becomes slower to heal and loses its ability to hold on to moisture and as a result, fine wrinkles start to appear on our skin.
Getting too much sun also affects our skin and leads to premature skin wrinkling and increased pigmentation. Other factors contributing to wrinkles include genetics, facial muscle contractions, environmental exposure to heat, wind and dust, and smoking.
If wrinkles are a cause of concern for you, there are options available to help eliminate or at least diminish wrinkle appearance on your skin. Wrinkle treatments include creams, gels, facial fillers, botox, laser resurfacing and chemical peel among many others. Most people are worried about surgical procedures, and would much better prefer a topical solution.
At Medical Specialists we are committed to offering effective and clinically proven treatments to help improve the quality of your skin. We have now available clinically proven treatments for anti-ageing and wrinkles which you can buy after going through an online consultation.
Retin-A Gel 0.01%
Retin-A contains tretinoin which is a derivative of vitamin A. It has been medically proven to be effective for the treatment of acne, and prevention of scar formation and in photo ageing of the skin.
Treclin contains the active substances clindamycin and tretinoin. Clindamycin is an antibiotic. It limits the growth of bacteria associated with acne and the inflammation caused by these bacteria. Tretinoin normalizes the growth of superficial skin cells and causes normal shedding of the cells that clog the hair follicles in areas with acne.
Aknemycin Plus (Tretinoin 0.025% / Erythromycin 4.0%) is a prescription only medication and is used in the treatment of acne. It has the same active ingredient as Retin-A (Tretinoin 0.025%) plus a topical antibiotic (Erythromycin).
Differin Cream contains the active ingredient adapalene, which is a form of vitamin A and is similar to tretinoin. Differin cream helps unblock pores and reduces the formation of blackheads and spots, and is therefore an effective treatment for acne. It also increases the turnover of the skin cells and has been shown to be an effective anti-wrinkle treatment.
Differin is also available in gel form with the same active ingredient adapalene, which is a form of vitamin A used in acne treatment. Differin gel is very similar to Retin-A (tretinoin) which is another treatment for acne. The active ingredient in Differin gel has an anti-inflammatory effect reducing soreness and irritation. It is used on the face, chest or back for acne, where the skin has lots of blackheads, spots and pimples. The active ingredient in Differin has also been shown to be effective in anti-wrinkle treatment.
Epiduo is a relatively new, effective and lasting acne treatment available in the form of a once-daily gel. Epiduo contains two active ingredients: adapalene (similar to tretinoin) and benzoyl peroxide. Epiduo is used to treat mild to moderate acne, blackheads, whiteheads and inflamed pimples. Epiduo's active ingredient has also been shown to be an effective treatment for anti-ageing and wrinkles.
Isotrex Gel (Isotretinoin) is used topically as a gel to treat mild to moderate acne. It may also help improve wrinkles or be used to prepare for skin laser treatment or as an aftercare treatment. Its main ingredient is isotretinoin, which is a type of retinoid derived from vitamin A.
