Aging/Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a natural condition experienced as you age. As we age, our skin’s ability to effectively remove dead skin cells declines. Your skin loses its elasticity as a result of the decrease in collagen and elastin production in your skin. This is what causes wrinkles to form throughout various parts of the body  such as the neck, face, hands, and other parts of the body exposed to the sun. Sunlight is also a key factor in the formation of wrinkles as it damages elastin fibers in the skin. Wrinkles are also influenced by lifestyle choices such as smoking, dehydration, and repeated facial expressions.

Frequently Asked Questions
As is the case with many other health issues, the most effective solution to avoiding wrinkles is prevention. Constantly using sunscreen and making healthy lifestyle choices such as drinking an adequate amount of water and avoiding smoking will keep your skin young and rejuvenated. However, our treatments are just as effective at keeping your skin healthy.
Wrinkles are often associated with old age, but they can start appearing on your body as soon as you're 25. This is a result of exposure to the sun and repeated facial expressions. However, wrinkles become especially prominent after age 65. Most people seek out treatment for wrinkles in their 40s which is when the development of wrinkles and fine lines is accelerated.
Both wrinkles and fine lines are signs of aging that appear on your skin, but their appearance and causes differ. The main difference between wrinkles and fine lines is that fine lines are more superficial and mild, whereas wrinkles are set deeper in the skin. Fine lines tend to form due to facial expressions and can form when you laugh, smile, squint, or frown. They're more prominent when the skin is dehydrated. Wrinkles, however, occur due to aging and the body's reduced potential to produce collagen and elastin. This causes a loss in skin elasticity and firmness.
