Wrinkles and Aging Skin
As we age, fine lines - better known as wrinkles - appear on our faces, revealing years of exposure to the sun, the elements, and often cigarette smoke. These factors weaken the elastin and collagen present in youthful skin. Less elastin and collagen in the deep layers of the skin equates to less elasticity and moisture, leading to a more wrinkly, saggy outer layer of the skin.
The Medical Spa offers several state-of-the-art procedures to target wrinkles. BOTOX ® Cosmetic, Microlaser Peels, dermal fillers, Laser Skin Rejuvenation, Restylane ®, Perlane ®, Juvéderm ™, and Radiesse ® are just a few of the treatments available to soften the severity of a wrinkle. Ask our professionals which treatment is best for you!
As people grow older, changes in the skin occur and are among the most visible signs of aging. With aging, the outer skin layer (epidermis) thins even though the number of cell layers remains unchanged.The number of pigment-containing cells (melanocytes) decreases, but the remaining melanocytes increase in size. Aging skin thus appears thinner, more pale, and translucent. Evidence of aging includes wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
Skin changes are related to environmental factors, genetic makeup, nutrition, and other factors, although the greatest single factor is sun exposure, so avoid sunburn.
