WRINKLES, WHAT ARE THEY?

What is a wrinkle?
Wrinkles are lines that form on the skin. They are caused by various factors such as aging, sleeping positions, facial expressions, sun exposure, dehydration, and pollution. As you get older, the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin diminishes and deeper lines appear. Collagen and elastin are the fibers that support our skin, which provide firmness and suppleness to the skin.
When do wrinkles and fine lines appear?

Wrinkles can appear at any age depending on the factors to which the skin is exposed. Skin type will also affect the apparition of wrinkles. Oily skin has the tendency of being thicker which will delay the wrinkles compared to dry skin which is thinner and more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. The first wrinkles are often dehydration lines. They can be easily corrected with a good moisturizer and a professional treatment made by your esthetician.

Where can the wrinkles appear?

The first wrinkles will often appear around the eyes since this region of the face is very sensitive and the skin is four times thinner than on the rest of the face. Also, the eye contour muscles are very stimulated, which encourages the wrinkles. When one notices their presence, they are fine lines (small wrinkles) which are often a sign of dehydration. Then expression wrinkles will appear around the mouth, between the eyebrows and around the eyes.

There are also the wrinkles that occur as a result of loss of skin tone due to aging or weight loss. These will appear on the cheeks, neck and décolleté.

THE DIFFERENT TYPE OF WRINKLES

There are two main type or wrinkles: mechanical and static wrinkles.

Mechanical wrinkles appear due to the movements of the facial muscles. They contract when speaking, smiling, eating, drinking, demonstrating emotion, and so on. These wrinkles are commonly referred to as expression lines.

PREVENT WRINKLES

Eternal youth requires prevention of cutaneous aging. Here are some practical tips to help prevent wrinkles.

Hydration! - Yes, drinking water! Our body is composed of 70% water, 25% of which is located in the epidermis and is subject to evaporation. The water in your skin gives it a plump and radiant look. Be sure to drink a minimum of 1.5 liters of water per day. A well hydrated skin is a firm and luminous skin.

A healthy diet - A diverse diet rich in fruits and vegetables, good fats and fiber is essential for healthy skin. Avoid trans and saturated fats, added sugars and processed foods.

Sun protection – It is known that sun exposure is very harmful to the skin and it is primordial to protect yourself. If you have to expose your skin to the sun, make sure to use a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30.

Sleep - It is essential to have a good sleep hygiene since it is during this period of the day that the skin regenerates. Lack of sleep causes the skin to age faster. Sleeping will replace your dark circles with a radiant skin!

Cleaning the skin - Morning and evening it is important to clean your face with a cleanser suitable for your skin type. This simple gesture clears the skin of accumulated impurities and allows it to breathe away from makeup and pollution.

Exfoliating the Skin - Once or twice a week, using a facial scrub will remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The skin can then better absorb the applied skin care products, prevent wrinkles and regain its radiance.

Using the right skin care products - Prioritize skin care creams recommended by professionals such as your esthetician. The high-end professional products are rich in active ingredients and specially designed to treat and prevent wrinkles. They moisturize the skin deeply while providing active ingredients that stimulate the skin.

Professional Treatments - A facial once every 4 to 6 weeks is one of the best ways to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. The esthetician is trained to take care of your skin. She uses specialized products, appliances and massage maneuvers studied to revive the cellular function of the skin. A professional facial allows the skin to receive deep cleansing, an essential stimulus to prevent wrinkles. Professional treatments deeply moisturize the skin to help it maintain a youthful appearance.

TREAT THE WRINKLES

When we talk about treating wrinkles, there are three ways to achieve this: surgery, injections and professional treatments done by an esthetician.
INJECTIONS

BOTOX

Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin.  It's the same toxin that causes a life-threatening type of food poisoning called botulism. It is used cosmetically to help remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles.

The effect is immediate but temporary. A new injection should be given every 3 to 8 months. The injection has to be administered by a doctor.

FILLING INJECTIONS

Filling injections are used to reshape certain parts of the face by filling or giving volume where necessary. They mainly contain animal collagen or synthetic hyaluronic acid and have several trade names including: Restylane, Perlane, Hylaform or Juvederm.

The products are biodegradable, which means that after a certain time they are absorbed and eliminated by the body. The effect can last from three to twelve months.

PLASTIC SURGERY

FACELIFT

The facelift is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia and is performed by a surgeon. This involves lifting the top and / or bottom of the face by making incisions and removing the skin, giving it a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance. This method is permanent and requires convalescence.

RESURFACING LASER

This technique is performed by a laser that vaporizes the wrinkle to make it shallower. This method does not correct expression lines or loss of firmness.

PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT BY AN ESTHETICIAN AND AT HOME

CHEMICAL PEELING

This technique involves applying a product that chemically destroys the superficial layers of the skin that will naturally reform. The chemical peel reduces fine lines and dark spots. Exfoliation also acts on wrinkles by decreasing their depth.

COLLAGEN TREATMENTS

Collagen is a natural protein present in the body. It gives tissue it’s elasticity and helps skin regenerate. The collagen treatment is used to smooth and moisturize the skin. As a result, the skin is replenished and full of vitality. Wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed.

SPECIFIC TREATMENTS ACCORDING TO YOUR SKIN TYPE

These treatments are personalized; your skin is analyzed and the active ingredients used are specific to your skin’s needs. Your esthetician uses high-end, state-of-the-art products to smooth your wrinkles and rejuvenate your skin.

PROFESSIONAL CARE AT HOME

Your esthetician will prescribe the best creams and serums that contain powerful active ingredients that will correct the signs of aging. These creams may contain collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, calcium or vitamin C. By using professional anti-wrinkle products at home, you have the assurance of the best results.
