Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Wrinkles and fine lines may be treated in a variety of ways. The Polyláser uses RJ-Hyaluronan gel which although comparable to injection results, has longer lasting effects, may be applied to large areas, and decreases the risk of an allergic reaction. The Polyláser not only reduces wrinkles, but revitalizes skin, firms, refines pores and heals wounds. Derma Pod technology uses new bi-polar waveform currents to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. This means you get clearly visible results without Botox or needles. Treatments for fine lines and wrinkles may be combined with other anti-aging treatments for a more comprehensive approach.
Besides fine lines and wrinkles, what other factors contribute to aging? Visible aging may be due to heredity or environmental factors. With intrinsic aging (heredity), collagen production slows and the skin’s elasticity lessens. Also, dead skin cells do not shed as quickly. Changes may take years to become visible. Visible changes include: fine wrinkles, thin/transparent skin, loss of facial fat and firmness, sagging due to bone loss, dry skin, graying hair, hair loss, and unwanted hair. Many of these problems can be resolved with non-invasive treatments for a more youthful appearance overall.
External factors accelerate the aging process and may lead to premature aging. These factors may include excessive and/or unprotected sun exposure, repetitive facial expressions, gravity, sleeping position (especially on one’s stomach), and smoking. Sleeping on your back prevents pressure on the face that may cause the skin to wrinkle especially in the nasal-labial fold, the line that runs from your nose to your mouth. Smoking zaps the supply of collagen, restricts capillary blood flow, and reduces vitamin A which protects against skin damage. Smoking also reduces vitamin C absorption and leads to wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions like puckering.
