Ageing brings about certain unwanted changes on the face.
Superficial Wrinkles –
At the superficial level, fibres of elastin in the skin get damaged during the process of ageing and due to the effects of chronic sun exposure, pollution, smoking, stress etc.
This causes fine wrinkles and a dull, grey appearance on the skin. For this, anti ageing creams containing retinols, hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, glycolic acid, peptides and other highly potent ingredients are prescribed. Regular moisturising and sunscreening, added to lifestyle changes including regular sleep hours, less screen time and mindfulness to relieve stress also work to reduce fine wrinkles.
- Dynamic Wrinkles- The wrinkles that occur on the face while making expressions like frowning, smiling and raising eyebrows are called deep wrinkles. These happen due to contraction of facial muscles. This can cause you to appear anxious, sad or aggressive. No amount of topical creams and serums or Chemical Peels and Lasers will treat deep wrinkles. We need to relax the muscles so that they do not contract so vigorously and wrinkling reduces. For this BOTOX is injected in very tiny amounts into the muscles. After a session of BOTOX, you will notice a remarkable improvement in your dynamic wrinkles, and brighten up your appearance.
- Static Wrinkles – Some wrinkles appear on the face due to loss of volume as a result of degradation of collagen and elastin in the deeper tissues of the face. Ligaments that hold up the skin structures also become lax. These wrinkles remain on the face even though no expression is made. You will see these as folds between your nose and mouth(nasolabial folds), as drooping corners of the mouth and as persistent lines on your forehead. To correct these wrinkles, we need to replace the lost volume. The best way to do this is to inject a naturally occurring substance called Hyaluronic Acid in the form of Dermal Fillers at the appropriate places. Dermal Fillers not just correct the deficient areas, but beautify and sculpt your face for a more youthful and appealing look.
