What Causes Wrinkles?
Skin cells divide less quickly as we age, and the inner layer of skin, called the dermis, starts to thin. That starts to break down the structure and elasticity of the skin.
As skin ages, it also starts to lose its ability to keep water. It has less oil and takes longer to get better. All of these things help cause wrinkles. The following can also cause wrinkles:
- Smoking. It slows down the way your skin makes collagen, which is a crucial part of the structure of your skin. The loss of collagen makes wrinkles more likely. That’s one more reason to stop smoking or never start in the first place.
- Skin type. People with light-colored skin and blue eyes are more susceptible to sun damage.
- Heredity. Some families wrinkle more, while some families wrinkle more.
- Sun exposure
- Face movements
Even though you can’t change all of these things, there are two that you can do: Don’t spend too much time in the sun and don’t smoke.
Since wrinkles are a natural part of aging, you don’t need to do anything about them. If you don’t like how wrinkles look on your skin, there are ways to treat them to make you look better.
Injectables like Botox
Botulinum toxin is used to make medicines like Botox and other wrinkle-relaxing treatments. They get in the way of the chemical messages that tell your muscles to tighten.
Your doctor will give you these medicines by injecting them into the muscles that cause wrinkles, such as the muscles between your eyebrows and the muscles at the side of your eyes.
Botox at Pure Skin and Aesthetics
At Pure Skin and Aesthetics, your Botox will first start with a consultation to talk about goals, answer questions, and make sure everyone knows what to expect.
For results to last, it’s best to retreat every 3–4 months. If you know, please tell us in the notes what brand you want us to use.
Deep wrinkles in the skin may need fillers to fill or lift them. Most people get rid of the folds around their mouth, nose, and chin. Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar polymer that occurs naturally.
Fillers at Pure Skin and Aesthetics
Our fillers for deep wrinkles are for smile lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. For best results, you may need more than one syringe. The appointment includes a consultation, numbing cream prescribed by the doctor (20 minutes), and injections (30 min). This treatment can go on for up to a year.
Microneedling, also called skin needling, is a way to make your face look younger. A device with several tiny needles is used to poke you and make a slight wound in the top layer of your skin (epidermis).
This cut will heal in just a few minutes; as it does, your skin will make new collagen and elastin. Microneedling is an excellent way to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on your skin.
Who’s a Good Candidate?
Wrinkles don’t have to be treated, but you can if you want to make yourself look better. Anyone who wants to can get treatment for their wrinkles. People between the ages of 40 and 55 are most likely to look for ways to get rid of wrinkles.
If you don’t like how wrinkles look on your skin, you can get them treated. The treatment makes your skin smoother and lessens the look of wrinkles, making you look younger.
Pre-Procedure For Wrinkle Treatment
Before you get any treatment for wrinkles, you’ll meet with your doctor to talk about your medical history, allergies, worries, and goals for the treatment.
Your provider will look at this information and give you treatment options that are right for you. It’s important to remember that each type of treatment is different, and what works for one person might not work for another.
Depending on the kind of treatment you’re getting, your doctor may tell you to stay out of the sun or wear sunscreen when you’re outside to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays.
What Happens During The Procedure?
Outpatient procedures like micro-needling, microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, and neuromodulator injections are done in the doctor’s office. At the same time, the patient is awake can take anywhere from minutes to hours.
During the procedure, your provider will use special tools, needles, or laser lights on the area of your skin that needs to be treated. A local anesthetic is put on your skin before laser skin resurfacing so you don’t feel anything.
For surgeries like a facelift, you need general anesthesia, which makes you sleep through the whole thing.
Risk of Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
There are risks to wrinkle treatments that depend on the type of treatment. Some of these risks are:
- Allergic to Medicine
- Changes in how your skin looks and feels.
- When permanent bumps start to form under your skin.
- Temporary paralysis.
- Infections at surgical sites.
Before you start treatment, talk to your doctor or nurse about the possible risks and side effects, as well as how to take care of your skin after treatment.
