INTRODUCTION

What Causes Wrinkles?

As we grow older, our skin loses its natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for our skin to maintain a taut, healthy look. As such, we develop wrinkles around our body. This usually happens in areas that are commonly exposed to the sun, like your face and hands.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of wrinkles:

Dynamic Wrinkles
These wrinkles are formed through muscular movements like smiling or frowning. They only appear when our muscles are tensed or when we are doing something that requires movement of facial muscles like speaking.

Static Wrinkles
Dynamic wrinkles sometimes become permanent and visible even when we’re not speaking or moving our facial muscles.

Depending on the type of wrinkles on your face, the recommended treatments will differ.

EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENTS

Treatments for Wrinkles Removal

Wrinkles can be treated and prevented by the use of neurotoxin even at a young age, when dynamic wrinkles start becoming obvious. If left alone, dynamic wrinkles can progress to become static wrinkles, which are more permanent and visible even without movement. Toxins are hence an extremely effective and popular method of wrinkle treatment.

However, toxins only help with muscle relaxation and do little to stimulate collagen and elastin. The overuse and improper use of toxins can also lead to undesirable side effects like frozen facies, tolerance and dependence.

Even so, there are many different treatment options for static wrinkles, and are frequently used in combination to achieve the best possible results. Various energy devices and injectable technologies can stimulate collagen and elastin at different layers of skin. Retionol and Tretinoin may also be prescribed and incorporated into the patient’s daily skincare routine, to support the ongoing collagen production and increase turnover of skin cells.

The use of each depends on suitability that should be best assessed over an individual consultation.

Neurotoxin injections can relax facial muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkles and in turn prevent them from turning into static wrinkles.

PERFECT protocol can remove wrinkles and fine lines with varying downtime of 3-7 days.

RESTORE is an aggressive laser protocol that completely rejuvenates the skin, removing stubborn wrinkles and scars that are etched deep in the skin. With a longer downtime, this treatment may not be suitable for everyone.

Skinboosters such as Rejuran can improve skin elasticity and induce collagen production to remove fine static lines and improve the looks of deep wrinkles.

A comfortable and completely pain free treatment, LDM Ultrasound facial can directly influence skin cell activities to improve their elasticity and stimulate collagen regrowth.
