Wrinkles are skin folds that appear due to the frequent contraction of facial muscles. The facial skin with age loses elasticity, moisture, colour, resulting in wrinkles, folds, sagging. Over the years, the skin produces less collagen and elastin, responsible for elasticity of the skin, its moisturizing. The skin is affected not only by the natural processes of aging but also by harmful factors of environment: ultraviolet radiation, temperature fluctuations, wind, and cold. The external factors include the dynamic factors, the active facial expressions.
Types of wrinkles
Wrinkles are mostly formed in the areas of eyes and mouth. The wrinkles around the eyes are formed after thirty years because of the dryness of this zone.
Nasolabial folds make the face look older and give the face a sad expression.
Glabellar folds are typical of those who frown and horizontal lines on the forehead are typical of those who raise eyebrows, being surprised.
The correction of wrinkles is different.
Injections of botox. Botox breaks the chain of nerve impulses from the muscle to the tissue. Botox helps get rid of aesthetic defects, which are caused by active facial expressions. The skin does not deform, the wrinkles do not appear. The effect of this method lasts for 6-8 months.
Another effective method is contour plastic. It is performed with injections of gels, which include hyaluronic acid. The molecules of hyaluronic acid are responsible for skin elasticity. The gels are hypoallergic and safe.
Among hardware methods, the most effective are laser resurfacing, RF-lifting, laser rejuvenation, photorejuvenation, electroporation.
Laser resurfacing is performed with a special apparatus, warming up the skin and stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. As a result, the skin becomes smooth and elastic.
RF-lifting is based on the compaction of collagen as a result of thermal impact. Besides, the procedure leads to splitting and excretion of fat.
Laser rejuvenation is another method, which helps remove wrinkles. It is performed on a special apparatus, which makes the skin more bright and smooth. The recovery process of skin cells is based on stimulation of collagen and elastin during the procedure. Laser rejuvenation can be combined with other techniques, such as plasmotherapy, mesotherapy, biorevitalization and other procedures.
Photorejuvenation actively eliminates wrinkles, age spots, improves skin color. The method is based on the use of multi-functional platform, equipped with a special nozzle, which affects the skin with the light beam. The result of the procedure is the increase of skin elasticity, smoothing of small wrinkles, and improvement of skin tonus.
Electroporation involves impact on the skin with pulse current, to increase the permeability of the epidermis and deliver the needed nutrients to any of its layers.
Cryoporation involves delivery of nutrients into the dermis by influencing the skin with low temperatures and low-intensify electric currents. Vitamin-mineral compounds penetrate into the deeper layers of skin and rejuvenate it. The lifting effect is achieved due to improvement of blood circulation and drainage.
Which method is suitable for you?
