The aging process seems to be most evident on our faces. Skin loses its elasticity, making it start to sag and pucker. Little lines become more noticeable and are often accentuated. While plastic surgery is one way to firm up your face, there are definitely some less invasive alternatives.

Depending on the depth and severity of your wrinkles, many commercial wrinkle creams contain ingredients that can improve collagen production or the protein, fibrillin. This increases the skins elasticity, giving it less drag and more bounce so wrinkles aren't apparent.

For a quick firm up, try a facial mask to tighten the skin and close pores. Even egg whites left on the face for fifteen minutes will pull the skin tight and have it looking young and fresh for several hours. However, for a longer term solution, many clinics also offer skin tightening procedures.

Tightening your skin works the same as stretching plastic wrap over a bowl to cover it. If left loose, it sags and dips, but pull it tight and it's smooth and crease free. Skin tightening procedures often make use of lasers to give your face the smooth look you crave. While the results are not permanent, it does last several weeks to several months and has very few side effects.

There are also a couple different products that can be injected into the creased areas to lift and plump them up for a smooth appearance. Botox is likely one of the most well known, but another injection treatment called Juvederm has proven quite successful. Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid, a natural component in the skin already, to plump up the creases found in wrinkles and frown lines.

While you can't change the rules of mother nature, you don't have to age gracefully. Whether you choose to use lotions and creams, lasers or injections, there are plenty of ways to firm up your face and leave the wrinkles behind.
