A wrinkle, also known as a rhytide, is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin or on fabric. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation, habitual sleeping positions, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water. Age wrinkling in the skin is promoted by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors
Treatment Options for Wrinkles
Treatment with BOTOX Injection
The effect may take up to 3-5 days for the maximum effect to be apparent where the area becomes smooth and relaxed and wrinkle free.
Botox® removes and smooths out areas where you have wrinkles to create a fresh and youthful look. The effects of smoothing the muscle does not allow the wrinkle to form as deeply as it would with constant muscle movement so more people are having it to reduce wrinkles forming as well as smoothing out existing ones. Other option to Botox is Microdermabrasion or “Skin polishing”
The effect of botox® significantly reduces wrinkles in the forehead, between the eye brows, crows feet, lines around the mouth and bunny lines on the nose to reveal a line free, fresher more youthful appearance.
