Wrinkles & Fine Lines
Wrinkles form as the skin ages and its underlying structure begins to break down. Environmental factors such as sun exposure, and smoking hasten the signs of aging. Repetitive facial expressions causes wrinkles and fine lines as well.
As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and causes wrinkles. Ultraviolet rays from the sun accelerate this process. While sunscreen and moisturizer can protect the skin and slow down the aging process, many products are available to reverse the signs of aging. Moisturizers, serums and skin care products can reduce fine lines and wrinkles over time and be used as maintenance to prolong the effects of stronger, more effective treatments such as chemical peels, neurotoxins, fillers and lasers.
Many products are available to slow down the signs of aging and reduce, minimizes fines lines and wrinkles.
The most important steps to protect your skin are to use a sunscreen and a moisturizer every day. These are the two most effective anti-aging products you can buy that will make the most difference.
- Opt for a sunscreen that is:
- Broad spectrum
- SPF 30
- Water resistant
- And make sure to reapply every 2 hours
- Moisturizer is the secret ingredient in many anti-aging products. Opt for:
- Product formulated for your skin type
- Hypoallergenic (The product can still cause an allergic reaction, but there is less risk.)
- Non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic (does not cause acne)
For fine lines and wrinkles around themouth, between your eyebrows (Glabella area), on your forehead, or by your eyes (crows’ feet) a simple and non-surgical procedure of injecting Onabotulinum toxin A is recommended. This is a common procedure that will help smooth and reduce the deep, persistent lines that have developed over time. In other words, these are used to relax the area of injection, preventing movement and wrinkles. The brand names are known as BOTOX® cosmetic or XEOMIN® injections.
Injectable wrinkle fillers fill lines or creases with one of several different substances. As a result, lines or creases seems to have nearly disappeared.
Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle Fillers are the most popular category of wrinkle fillers. Each type works in a slightly different way with varying results. Although side effects are rare, they can include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. The results last from several months to over a year. We recommend to perform yearly maintenance to help stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen and reduce the amount of filler needed over time.
Hyaluronic acid wrinkle filler include JUVEDERM , BELOTERO® and RESTYLANE® can be combined with other fillers / volumizers.
