What causes wrinkles and what exactly are they?
Wrinkles are completely natural and develop during the process of aging. As we grow older, our skin becomes drier, thinner, and elastin reduces.
The skin is no longer able to protect itself to the same extent as it once could, and wrinkles, lines, and creases start to develop.
A further cause of wrinkles is regular muscle contraction. The contraction of our facial muscles results in the development of what are known as dynamic wrinkles; that is, wrinkles that only appear when we use the muscles involved. Over time, these wrinkles can develop into permanent wrinkles, or static wrinkles.
Anti - wrinkle & filler injections are all commenced with a consultation with an external cosmetic Doctor which assesses your skin and confirms the amount you should use.
Options for treating wrinkles
Anti-wrinkle injections can inhibit dynamic wrinkles from becoming static wrinkles by preventing the signal between the muscle and the nerve. This reduces the movement of the muscle and, as such, reduces the strain that is placed on the surrounding skin, thereby helping you to maintain a wrinkle-free appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections are most effective when they are employed as a preventative measure. In combination with PRP is ideal to nourish your collagen cells and maintain the skin you love.
The serum that is used in anti-wrinkle injections consists of a purified protein that stimulates the muscle to temporarily relax. It immediately softens lines and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
How does dermal filler work?
During the aging process, our body gradually loses the ability to generate elastin and collagen and this results in the loss of volume in the skin in some areas of our face, which makes us look fatigued.
Dissimilar to wrinkles, which can be reduced through the use of muscle relaxants, folds and loss of volume need some form of dermal filler to hydrate and introduce volume into the impacted area.
Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic gel, a sugar that naturally occurs in the human body; as such, they represent a safe and affordable method of restoring facial fullness and volume.
Dermal fillers are commonly applied in a range of areas of the face and can take various forms depending on the desired outcome.
Some areas of the face, such as the lips, require the use of a softer filler that produces understated and natural results, while others, for example, the jaws and cheeks, may need stronger structural reinforcement using denser fillers.
The most effective approach to treating wrinkles and maintaining a useful appearance is to combine dermal fillers with anti-wrinkle injections. This helps to prevent the formation of wrinkles, reduce volume loss, and delay the signs of aging.
