Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Nothing ages a person’s face more than fine lines and wrinkles. The more wrinkles one has, and the more deep their lines, the older and more tired they can look. Today, increasing amounts of men and women have become more conscious about reducing their wrinkles and also preventing them at a younger age. Fine lines and wrinkles are a concern at all ages. You may be looking for a more youthful appearance by reducing formed fine lines and wrinkles, or you may be looking at procedures for preventative measures so that you age more gracefully.
At Canada MedLaser in Toronto, we offer many cutting-edge treatments to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Canada MedLaser offers free consultations where we can recommend one or even a combination of medical aesthetic procedures and treatment plans. These treatments can be customized to your specific needs and concerns.
Treatment Options for Fine Lines and Wrinkles:
Microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy is a procedure in which tiny microscopic needles safely puncture the skin in order to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Increased collagen production promotes elasticity in the skin, which will make it appear tighter, plumper and more bouncy. This can reduce fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by skin sagging or drooping. Microneedling can also assist with delivering skin care products deeper in to the skin so that they can work more effectively.
Botox or Dysport is a highly popular and non-invasive treatment that people turn to when looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a prescription drug that is injected in to the muscles that contract to form the fine lines and wrinkles. The deepest lines in our face are developed over time by repeated use of our facial muscles that move to form expressions, such as smiling and frowning. When Botox or Dysport is injected into these muscles, it causes them to become paralyzed by temporarily blocking neuromuscular transmissions. Because the muscle is unable to move, the wrinkle or line becomes relaxed and smoothens out. Results can last from 3-6 months.
The popularity of dermal fillers has recently skyrocketed due to their usage by many celebrities to transform their faces while still looking natural. While there are different varieties of fillers, Canada MedLaser uses dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, as they are considered the safest and most advanced fillers on the market. They are injected under the skin to smooth, hydrate, and plump. Fillers are used to treat wrinkles by restoring volume to the skin, which in turn smoothens the skin to eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles. Results typically last around 6 months but can last up to 18 months.
PRP (Vampire Facial) Treatment
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. PRP treatment is very safe as it is created with your own blood, and has very little side effects or downtime. Blood is extracted from the patient and spun in a special machine to concentrate the platelets, which are important in the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation. The PRP is then injected back in to the face, which plumps the skin, and in turn, fills out the skin’s fine lines.
