Sooner or later, wrinkles appear on everyone. But when you want to get rid of them, you encounter a huge variety of cosmetic procedures.
Let’s talk about the methods of skin rejuvenation and how to choose the right one.
What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are skin defects that become particularly noticeable with age. There are two types:
- Dynamic wrinkles: These appear due to the movement of the facial muscles during frowning, laughing, or other expressions. Usually, such wrinkles smooth out after the muscles relax, but as you age, the recovery process becomes more difficult. They often appear on the forehead, around the eyes, and on the bridge of the nose.
- Static wrinkles: These occur due to collagen breakdown. The dermis becomes less firm and elastic, making it harder for these creases to smooth out on their own.
What causes wrinkles?
The appearance and depth of wrinkles are influenced by the following factors:
- Cell division rate: As you age, the rate of cell division in the epidermis slows down, resulting in slower shedding of damaged areas.
- Capillary count: The number of capillaries also decreases with age, leading to impaired nourishment of the dermis.
- Collagen production: Fibroblasts (dermal cells) produce collagen, hyaluronic acid, and proteoglycans at a slower rate. The quality of collagen also deteriorates, causing the skin to become thinner and less elastic.
- Sebaceous gland activity: The lower the activity, the worse the face is protected against external factors. The epidermis also becomes drier and loses its elasticity.
- Lack of sleep and stress: Nervous tension triggers the release of the hormone adrenaline, which causes the peripheral capillaries to constrict. This leads to impaired nourishment of the skin.
- Sudden weight changes: Weight loss results in the thinning of the fatty layer in the dermis, leading to sagging and wrinkles.
- Sedentary lifestyle: Arteries, veins, and nerve nodes pass through the neck. Poor posture or a sedentary lifestyle can compress them, resulting in inadequate nourishment of the skin (oxygen or vitamins deficiency).
- Unhealthy habits: Alcohol dehydrates and dries out the connective tissue. Smoking blocks oxygen supply to the epidermis.
- Unsuitable cosmetics: Low-quality makeup or skincare products can cause dehydration, irritation, or allergies. Such reactions can also be triggered by products that are not suitable for your skin type.
- Facial expressions: Highly expressive individuals develop deep dynamic wrinkles faster.
- Vitamin deficiencies: Lack of vitamins leads to sleep disturbances and constant fatigue. Vitamins B3, B5, retinol, and ascorbic acid are particularly important for skin health.
What causes wrinkles?
First, a cosmetologist evaluates the condition of the skin to choose the appropriate rejuvenation method. Some of the most popular methods are:
- Botulinum toxin injections
- Dermal fillers
- Laser correction
- Chemical peeling
This is a facial treatment procedure using a special device. Multipolar radio frequencies and pulsed electromagnetic fields stimulate the accelerated division of fibroblasts, which are cells that produce collagen.
A vacuum applicator slightly lifts the skin to allow the radiation to penetrate deeper layers of connective tissue. During the procedure, the cosmetologist monitors changes in temperature.
The entire process takes about 30 minutes.
The procedure is based on a device with a pulsating therapeutic applicator. It stimulates the division of fibroblasts and the production of good collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. It also stimulates active blood circulation and the burning of fat deposits in the skin folds.
The procedure refreshes the complexion, restores volume in sagging areas, reduces wrinkles and double chin. The result is more pronounced after a series of several treatments, but the effect of a fresh, lifted face can already be seen after the first stage.
Fire and Ice Facial
The procedure is based on alternating the effects of heat and cold. In the first stage, the cosmetologist applies a warming rejuvenating mask, and in the second stage, a mask with a cooling effect. Such a contrast of temperatures accelerates blood circulation and improves cell regeneration in the epidermis.
It is suitable for overall improvement of the skin condition, evening out its tone, smoothing roughness, eliminating fine wrinkles, and reducing small scars.
The cosmetologist applies an acidic peel that dissolves impurities in the pores. Using a device with a vacuum applicator, all dead skin cells and dirt are gently removed. Then, a moisturizing mask with peptides and antioxidants is applied. These substances block the impact of toxins and stimulate collagen production. The final step is the application of a moisturizing cream for skin recovery and soothing.
The multi-step treatment helps with wrinkles, clogged or enlarged pores, pigmentation, oily or excessively dry skin. The cosmetologist selects serums or nourishing cocktails individually, based on the patient’s needs.
Sculpra are injections of a special skin-filling composition that stimulates collagen production. The effects become more noticeable after three procedures, and your skin visibly transforms 3-6 months after the first session.
After the procedure, the epidermis becomes more elastic, folds are filled, and sunken areas of the face are leveled. The result lasts for about two years.
A gentle injectable method of rejuvenation. For the procedure, the cosmetologist uses a device with ultra-fine needles made of 24-carat gold. Fillers, muscle relaxants, retinol, and antioxidants are delivered into the skin through these needles. One of the features of the procedure is injections of the patient’s own platelets, which restore damaged capillaries and nourish the epidermis.
The procedure is suitable for restoring facial volume, elasticity, and firmness of the skin, smoothing fine wrinkles, eliminating scars, and evening out the skin tone, as well as providing a fresh look to the face.
Botox and Fillers
Botulinum toxin blocks the activity of nerve endings, temporarily immobilizing the muscles. This smoothens constant facial wrinkles and slows down the appearance of new ones. Fillers are based on hyaluronic acid. They restore volume in sunken areas, fill and smooth wrinkles.
Suitable for smoothing fine or deep, dynamic or static wrinkles. Injections of fillers and Botox can also help to correct the shape of the face, nose, and lips.
How can I improve the appearance of wrinkles?
- Reduce alcohol consumption and smoking. It is also better to minimize other factors that affect the condition of the face, such as stress, a sedentary lifestyle, and lack of sleep.
- Perform facial exercises. It is important to keep the facial muscles toned to maintain a firm facial contour. It is important to do exercises for at least 10 minutes every day.
- Facial massage. This is an opportunity to improve blood circulation, reduce swelling, and smooth fine lines. Special tools like gua sha or a roller massager can also be used.
- Use skincare products. Creams, serums, masks, and oils directly replenish the skin with essential vitamins and acids.
- Choose nutritious food with high levels of vitamins and minerals. Healthy foods support the overall vitality of the body. The necessary microelements reach the skin through the bloodstream, restoring its freshness.
