Austin Wrinkle Treatment
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. Wrinkles begin to form as we get older due to sun damage, facial expressions, smoking, dehydration and a myriad of other lifestyle and genetic factors. As time passes, the skin becomes thinner, drier and less elastic. As this process occurs, the skin’s ability to protect itself from further damage diminishes as well.
Just because wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process doesn’t make them any less alarming when they first show up. Unfortunately, skin that is most frequently exposed to sunlight tends to begin developing these fine lines and wrinkles first. Since our face is typically always exposed, the facial skin is subject to more daily hazards and ultraviolet radiation from the sun. For those that have spent a lot of time outdoors without wearing some form of skin protection, visible signs of facial aging may begin to appear earlier, in the form of crow’s feet around the eyes or fine lines around the mouth.
The good news is, there are a number of things you can do to reverse the damage that has already occurred and diminish the appearance of existing wrinkles. Aesthetica Med Spa offers a wide range of wrinkle treatment options to address this issue of skin aging.
Chemical peels are an effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. This Austin wrinkle treatment works by removing the top layer of damaged skin, allowing newer, healthier skin cells to surface and replenish the outer skin layer with vibrant, younger-looking skin. Essentially, chemical peels work by erasing imperfections and improving skin texture and tone by removing outer layers of skin. Depending on the extent of damage, there are different types and levels of chemical peels for decreasing wrinkles in your appearance.
Injectables & Fillers
Injectables and filler materials like Botox and Juvederm work to smooth out wrinkles by adding volume and support to the skin. These wrinkle treatments are particularly effective at diminishing and smoothing out the folds between our nose and mouth, deep furrows on the forehead and the parentheses line arcs that can form around the corners of the mouth.
Laser resurfacing procedures are also very effective at erasing the signs of aging. There are a number of different types of treatments and procedures that employ lasers for wrinkle reduction. In most laser resurfacing procedures, precise beams of light (with specified wavelengths) are delivered to the treatment area, selectively destroying undesired tissue to reveal newer, fresher skin beneath. Laser technology is also frequently used to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production to increase the skin’s cell turnover rate, resulting in smoother, firmer skin.
