Wrinkles are brought about by aging. Aging is happening due to so many reasons. But most notable external and behavioral reasons of aging are:
- Your choice of food (diet)
- Your activity or inactivity (exercise)
- Environmental exposure (smoking and pollution)
- Excessive tanning (sun exposure)
- Over thinking (stress)
Based above, aging and wrinkling can be brought about by forces we can’t control which are the environment and by forces we can control, our self.
Wrinkles are Part of Who We Are, But…
But, early signs of wrinkles aren’t that normal. It means either you are growing old too fast or you are just too exposed to the external factors of aging. Laugh and smile wrinkles aren’t to fear with though. But when those wrinkles are now hindering everything in you such as your self esteem, then that would be another issue.
Sometimes people will equate wrinkles with the way we safeguard and take care of ourselves.

I call it technological and modern stress.
Anyway, if these wrinkles hold much of your self esteem and yourself concept, then there can things that you should do to prevent it. One is to use the right products and skin care regimen, two, live alone and faraway to avoid stress or three, seek cosmetic procedure’s help.

Luckily, the things we mentioned above are all non invasive. Meaning there is a very little chance of coming up with a major risk. But nevertheless, still, as like all other treatments, you cannot be able to take the possibility of minor problems. Itchiness, bruising and tenderness may be felt for some time. But then if proper post operative care will be done, then you are most likely being having minor complications. All you have to do is follow the procedures, be careful and rest.
Treatment costs may vary depending on the procedure you have undergone. The more known the doctor of your choice, the more secure you are, then the higher the prices to be paid.
