Botox,fillers & Aesthetic laser : Anti-aging treatments
Wrinkles are creases, folds or ridges in the skin. Most commonly, wrinkles appear as we get older. However, they may develop after our skin has been immersed in water for a long time. The first wrinkles to appear on our face tend to occur as a result of facial expressions. Sun damage, smoking, dehydration, some medications, as well as a number of other factors may also cause wrinkles to develop.
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the natural aging process. As we become older our skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Our skin’s ability to protect itself from damage is also reduced as we age. Eventually, wrinkles, creases and lines form on our skin. Apart from the factors mentioned above, a person’s genetic makeup also influences how wrinkly we become, and when and where wrinkles start appearing.
In Canada the Neuromodulators that are indicated for the improvement of these wrinkles are extracts of botulinum protein. Currently, these are Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®. Tiny amounts of this purified botulinum protein are injected into specific facial muscles responsible for the creation of facial lines and wrinkles. These then relax the movement and allow for the skin to remodel and the lines to fade over time. With the proper placement and quantity of neuromodulator injection the fresh improved look can be established not the frozen look.
Medical doctors have used neuromodulators for over twenty years for various medical conditions, the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles of and to improve excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the underarms
