Aesthetic Medicine: Treatment Duration, Wrinkle Reduction, and Differences by Skin Type

Aesthetic medicine is a continuously evolving field, with an increasing number of advanced treatments available. Among the main goals of patients seeking aesthetic medicine are wrinkle reduction and achieving younger and brighter skin.

But how long do the effects of these treatments last, and which ones are most suitable for mature skin?

In general, the duration of the effects of aesthetic medicine treatments depends on the type of treatment and the individual characteristics of the patient, such as age, lifestyle, and skin type. Additionally, external factors such as sunlight and exposure to chemicals can influence the duration of treatment effects.

Treatments and Products

Among the most commonly used treatments is botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox. The effect of botulinum toxin typically lasts from 3 to 6 months, after which the treatment can be repeated.

Similarly, facial fillers, such as those based on hyaluronic acid, have a temporary effect, as do laser and radiofrequency treatments. The duration of the effect of fillers varies depending on the brand and concentration of the product, but generally ranges around 6 months. For laser treatments, the average duration can range from 6 months to a year.

The products used at MiniHospital are of very high quality and are absorbed over a certain period of time, hence the effect obtained lasts anywhere from 6 months to a year.

As for treatments with permanent effects, the most common procedures are facelifts, blepharoplasty, and rhinoplasty.

To maintain the results obtained for as long as possible, it is important to adopt some habits. Here are some useful tips:

  • Protect the skin from the sun.
  • Use sunscreen with adequate protection factor, wear hats and sunglasses, and limit exposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day.
  • Maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
  • Drinking plenty of water can help keep the skin hydrated from the inside.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • Use suitable skincare products.
  • Perform maintenance treatments.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What are the most suitable treatments for mature skin and those for reducing wrinkles?

Regarding the most suitable aesthetic medicine treatments for mature skin, there are several options available. Among these, facial fillers are one of the most commonly used. Fillers are injectable substances used to increase volume and elasticity of the skin, reducing wrinkles and improving facial contour.

The most common fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in our bodies that helps keep the skin hydrated and elastic.

Additionally, botulinum toxin is an extremely effective treatment for reducing facial wrinkles, especially those present on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. It works by relaxing the muscles responsible for wrinkles, creating a rejuvenating and skin-smoothing effect.

Other treatments that can be effective for mature skin include radiofrequency, laser, and microdermabrasion.
