Get Rid of Wrinkles
Wrinkles are changes in the texture of the skin that appear as lines, creases or folds. The rate and degree at which they occur are dependent on a number of factors including:
• The natural aging process (thinning skin, collagen depletion, loss of elasticity)
• Repeated facial muscle contractions (smiling, frowning, squinting)
• Sun damage
Proven Wrinkle Fillers
Physician Skincare Centre in North Vancouver offers several treatments that will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The most suitable treatment(s) will depend on the type of wrinkles present:
Dynamic wrinkles are those that occur when one actively makes facial expressions, and disappear when the face is relaxed. They are typically the first wrinkles noticed as one ages. Examples of dynamic wrinkles are crow’s feet around the eyes, and frown lines between the eyebrows. The most effective treatment for dynamic wrinkles is Botox® Cosmetic. This injectable treatment temporarily relaxes the underlying muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles to form when one animates.
Static wrinkles are those that are always visible – even when the face is relaxed, and the underlying muscles are not contracting. They begin as dynamic wrinkles, but progress when the skin loses structure and volume as part of the aging process. Static wrinkles are best treated with a combination of Botox® Cosmetic and Laser Skin Resurfacing in order to improve their appearance and prevent them from deepening. In some cases, Dermal Fillers may also be injected to smooth static wrinkles.
Wrinkle folds occur due to gravitational sagging of the underlying facial structures, most notably causing the deep grooves between the nose and mouth known as naso-labial folds. The most effective non-surgical treatment for wrinkle folds is injection with Dermal Fillers which plump up the groove from beneath, resulting in a softer appearance.
