Wrinkles Treatment

Skin Aging and Wrinkles: Skin aging leads to the loss of skin laxity, resulting in the formation of wrinkles, which are creases, folds, or ridges in the skin. Several factors contribute to wrinkle formation, including environmental factors, smoking, dehydration, sun exposure, medications, and sports activities.

In-Office Treatments: To address wrinkles and signs of aging, various in-office treatments are employed. These include the use of retinoids (Vitamin A), RF (Radiofrequency) treatments, lasers, Botox, chemical peels, fillers, and facelift surgery.

Consulting a Specialist: Facios clinic recommends consulting with a specialist to determine the most suitable treatment option based on individual needs and the degree of skin aging and wrinkles.

Skin Aging Factors: Skin aging is a dynamic process influenced by both intrinsic (innate) and extrinsic (exogenous) factors.

Intrinsic Factors: These include internal metabolic processes, genetic programming, cellular metabolism, and hormones.

Extrinsic Factors: These are caused by external elements like ultraviolet rays from sunlight, cigarette smoking, environmental pollution, etc.

Effects of Aging: The combined effect of these factors leads to signs of aging such as fine wrinkling, dry and thin skin, decreased skin elasticity, and sagging due to the effects of gravity.

Treatment Modalities: Recent non-invasive treatment modalities like HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) and RF (Radiofrequency) have gained attention for their effectiveness in treating loose and sagging skin.

HIFU: High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound involves the use of ultrasound waves to target specific depths in the skin, causing collagen contraction and tissue remodeling. It is used for various indications including brow lifting, facial rejuvenation, and treating wrinkles.

RF: Radiofrequency utilizes high-frequency alternating current to generate heat in the skin. This heat stimulates collagen changes and neocollagenesis in deep skin layers. RF treatment is indicated for complete facial rejuvenation and addressing issues like wrinkles and sagging.

It’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine the most suitable treatment based on individual needs and skin condition.
