Fine Line & Wrinkles
As we mature in years, it’s common for us to notice fine lines and wrinkles that pop up over time. With the right treatment and skin care routine, it is possible to reduce the appearance and slow the progression of fine lines and wrinkles.
What causes fine lines and wrinkles?
Fine lines and wrinkles are a result of the breakdown of elastin and collagen in the skin. Collagen is the glue that helps keep the skin and tendons together by a network of fibers, giving the skin its strength, and elastin helps the skin maintain its original shape.
Our bodies typically produce less collagen as we age, which means it’s unable to replenish what we have lost. As a result, the skin begins to lose its strength and elasticity. In other words, its ability to “bounce back” over time is reduced.
Smoking, sun exposure, and certain medications can also increase signs of aging of the skin.
How can I prevent and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles?
1. Focus on nutritional intake
Eating healthy can help slow the signs of aging, because if you’re healthy on the inside, it shows on the outside. Vitamin E protects the body against sun damage, Vitamin A prevents collagen reduction, and minerals like copper support healthy skin cells.
2. Use the right skin care
It’s important to use safe and effective skin care products to promote healthy skin and prevent premature aging. SkinMedica products are backed by science and a great choice when it comes to supporting the skin’s natural regeneration and healing process.
3. Consider aesthetic services
There are many innovative and safe, non-invasive procedures to turn back the hands of time, repair sun damage, and prevent premature aging. Laser treatments, such as the Halo by Sciton, Contour TRL, and Profractional Laser are great options for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are also great options for fine lines and wrinkles of the forehead and around the eyes. Dermal Fillers can add volume to the face and fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nasolabial folds, and cheeks. Finally, the Vampire Facelift and Vampire Facial are great options to fill in wrinkles and add volume to the face using your own body chemistry to support the process.
