Aging is an inevitable part of life, but there are anti-aging strategies that can be implemented now to delay and reduce the onset of lines and wrinkles. The visible signs of aging that we see on our skin such as sagging, wrinkles, discoloration, loss of firmness and texture, are the results of both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic factors include genetics, and other factors that we cannot control, while extrinsic factors are the habits and behaviors that we can control such as sleep, nutrition and sun protection.

Wrinkles are creases, folds, or ridges in the skin that begin to appear as we age. The first wrinkles to appear on our face tend to be the result of facial expressions such as squinting or smiling. Sun damage, smoking, dehydration, and some medications may also cause wrinkles to develop.

As a natural part of aging, wrinkles can also be more prominent on sun-exposed skin, such as the face, neck, hands and forearms. Although genetics are the most important determination of skin structure and texture, sun exposure is the major contributor of wrinkles.

Today there are a variety of treatments available to treat wrinkles, including:

  • Botox - currently the number one treatment in the United States, it works well in eliminating wrinkles.
  • Dermal Fillers - this treatment is used to "fill" skin that has lost tissue volume.

By visiting your MedSpa, you can take the next step toward a more youthful appearance.
