Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Types Of Wrinkles
The first step to keeping your wrinkles at bay is to understand how and why the wrinkles form. Here are some details on the types of wrinkles, what causes them, and what treatments are effective to get rid of them.

Static Wrinkles
Over the years of continuous formation of dynamic wrinkles through our facial movements, some of the wrinkles become permanent and are present even when we have no facial expression. These are known as static wrinkles.

Treatment:

  • Fillers,
  • Fractional CO2 Laser

Dynamic Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles form when we move certain muscle groups, such as when we smile or frown. They are not present when our muscles are relaxed.

Treatment: 

Dynamic wrinkles are recommended to be treated with neuro-toxins (anti-wrinkle) injections.

We offer all FDA and CE-approved brands of anti-wrinkle injections.

Forehead wrinkles
Your lifestyle has a significant impact on your skin’s health. Forehead lines develop overtime when collagen and elastin from your skin gradually decreases. The sun’s UV rays contribute to premature aging and wrinkles. Stress causes you to worry, which then leads you to wrinkles your brows. Being dehydrated makes wrinkles appear more prominent. And an unhealthy diet involving too much fat, carbs, and sugar increases the risk of wrinkles and skin atrophy.


Eye wrinkles
Wrinkles under the eyes is a common dilemma for many people. Crows feet and eye wrinkles naturally form as we age. Other than age, there are more factors affecting the sagging and stretching of the eye area skin. Squinting causes you to wrinkle your skin – doing this regularly is a key cause for crows feet. The skin around the eyes is very thin, rubbing aggressively can stretch your skin in unnatural ways. Sleeping while your face is buried in the pillow for many hours can form unnatural wrinkles, which can turn into permanent wrinkles over time. Other lifestyle habits like smoking may dry out your skin and eventually affect the health of your eye skin. Too much sun exposure is one of the main reasons for collagen and elastin fibre breakdowns and is associated with skin aging.
Neck wrinkles
Aging is the main reason for the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, wherever part of the body. Skin’s collagen continuously breaks down as we age. This results in thinner and drier skin – making the skin appear saggy and wrinkled. Sun also damages the neck area with its harmful ultraviolet rays. Squeezing the areas around the skin can form unnatural wrinkles in the area, this happens with constrictive clothing such as swimsuits, push-up bras, and fitted tops.

Chin wrinkles

Chin wrinkles, just like any other typed of wrinkles, can be caused by the sun’s UV light, smoking, genes, and certain facial expressions that are repeatedly done. Over time, your face loses its facial volume, which makes chin wrinkles gradually appear. Treatments such as fillers can restore the lost volume and stimulate the production of new collagen to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.


Face wrinkles
Face wrinkles appear on your eyes, forehead, neck, and chin. This is primarily caused by aging as collagen and elastin decrease, resulting in brittle and inelastic skin. As you age, the skin produces less sebum, which makes the skin drier and for wrinkles to become more visible. Other factors also contribute to the formation of facial wrinkles such as repeated facial expressions, pollution, smoking, too much sun exposure, and an unhealthy diet.

Reducing fine lines and wrinkles can drastically improve your appearance. You can find effective treatments in your doctor os dermatologists clinic. These treatments include chemical peels, lasers, and fillers.
 

Fillers
There is a comprehensive range of dermal fillers available to meet the diverse needs. Two most common types of fillers are Hyaluronic acid and Calcium hydroxyapatite fillers. They both have unique characteristics which will determine the ideal usage of each. Softer fillers are used to treat fine lines on mobile areas and areas with thin skin. This treatment involves injecting soft gels into the skin to add volume on areas, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and hydrate the skin.

 

Fractional CO2
Fractional CO2 has the ability to create thousands of microthermal zones in the targeted areas. Laser energy is emitted and reached the middle layer of the skin. BLUXEL Fractional CO2 is the latest of this type. It produces fine laser beams that cause minimal redness and scabs – meaning lesser downtime is needed. Depending on the severity of your wrinkles, it is typical to be required at least 3-5 sessions. Results can be seen around 1-2 weeks after the procedure, and will continuously improve as the body produces more collagen.
