Your Guide to Wrinkles and How to Treat Them
Fine lines are very superficial, they have the potential to be reduced with light skin peels, proper hydration, and improved regeneration, because they are purely epidermal. Dry skin and dehydration are the common causes of fine lines. In both skin concerns, dead skin cells are glued to the surface, preventing healthy cell turnover and product absorption.
Dynamic and static wrinkles get more prominent with age—this is where the beauty of injections and topical skin care come together to prevent and correct these wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles begin as expression lines and smooth-away as soon as the muscles relax. With chronic damage and collagen changes, the skin loses its ability to bounce-back and the dynamic wrinkle becomes a line—which we have the power to remove because they are epidermal.
A dynamic wrinkle transitions to static when craniofacial aging begins. Crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, forehead lines, and lip furrows, transition to static wrinkles because of changes in facial muscle, fat deposits and bone structure. These wrinkles are amplified with fine lines and discolorations, as a result of environmental damage.
Elastosis is visible when chronic environmental damage has taken its toll and changed the composition of the deeper layers of skin. Elastosis is the abundance of elastin and reduction of collagen resulting in vertical or interconnected wrinkles over the face. Improvement can be made with a pro-collagen treatment plan.
Routine facial care, skin serums and sunscreen are the forefront of wrinkle treatments and are integral at preventing future damage and early signs of aging. First topicals, then laser, injectables, or surgery.
Ingredients that combat wrinkles:
Argireline® peptide is exclusively formulated to reduce the appearance of wrinkle volume and depth. The peptide competes with the natural protein for a position in the SNARE complex, destabilizing its formation and disrupting the communication between the neurotransmitter and the muscle. Resulting in a decrease of expression lines.
Matrixyl 3000® is exclusively formulated to reduce the appearance of lines via collagen, fibronectin and hyaluronic acid synthesis to help repair the dermal fiber network.
Apple Cell Culture Extract, or fruit stem cells, are antioxidant powerhouses that may have the ability to help encourage the growth of the skin’s own stem cells and activate their anti-aging effects.
L-Ascorbic Acid is scientifically researched for its diverse photoprotection and anti-aging benefits. It helps neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative stress while providing visible anti-aging benefits.
Hydrolyzed Amaranth Protein helps deep cleanse the skin and encourages a healthy barrier with naturally
occurring squalane and linoleic acid.
Horse Chestnut, Willowherb, and Ginkgo Extracts offer anti-inflammatory support and help reduce environmental triggers of inflammation that contribute to premature aging of the skin.
