Wrinkles and Lines

wrinkles and fine linesWhy you have wrinkles
Wrinkle reduction is a highly sought after aesthetic procedure, but have you ever wondered what causes wrinkles? And why one day almost out of nowhere, lines start to develop on your once smooth, youthful skin?

It all has to do with the loss of vital skin components that decline as we age, with elastin and collagen being the 2 most important.The loss of these elements causes a shift in the overall structure of the skin making it thinner and less elastic, and therefore more prone to the formation of lines and wrinkles.

Lines and wrinkles are also the result of poor dietary choices, as a diet low in vitamin C can also contribute to the formation of wrinkles. So too can excessive exposure to smoke, and the UV rays of the sun.

Treatment for Wrinkles
For several years now Botox, as well as Dysport have been the solutions of choice for wrinkles. Botox has been particularly effective in softening those expression lines that form as a result of years of smiling, frowning, and squinting. All it takes is 10 minutes with our nurse or physician to get your face injected with either of these anti-aging solutions. After being treated, you don’t have to go in for a visit for another 3-4 months, because that’s how long the effects will last.


Fraxel laser

Fractional skin resurfacing is another very effective skin rejuvenation procedure that can get rid of those wrinkles that Botox can’t fix. This procedure not only reduces fine lines, but it also renews the surface of the skin, for an overall younger, healthier appearance.

After Treatment – Skin Protection
After treatment you will notice a marked reduction in the fine lines and wrinkles, but skin protection is now even more important. Most of all, never go out in the sun without sunscreen, and not just any sunscreen, be sure that the one you choose has a SPF of at least 30. Also, make sure that it offers protection from both the UVB and UVA rays of the sun.
