Over the years, the skin loses its elasticity, because it produces fewer and fewer collagen and elastin fibers. This results in the weakening of connective tissue causing the skin to lose its tone. The skin becomes flabby, and wrinkles are formed. Due to gravity, wrinkles develop downwards, a phenomenon seen in sagging cheeks and drooping eyelids.
While wrinkles and fine lines are a normal part of aging, they make the skin appear tired and can be of significant cosmetic concern, especially for women. You can prevent premature wrinkling by avoiding the sun and taking proper care of your skin, but wrinkles caused by genetics and aging are not avoidable. Fortunately, mild cases of wrinkles usually respond to treatment with over-the-counter or prescription creams. Deep wrinkles may require more invasive removal methods.
The treatments for wrinkles include Botox, Fillers, Chemical Peels, Smooth beam Laser, Medical Microdermabrasion or Surgical Dermabrasion. These treatments may be recommended individually or in combination.
