Your Questions on Wrinkles Answered

13 February 2022

Patients who contact Etwall Dental Practice typically query facial wrinkles. People want to know how to prevent new wrinkles from forming and how to reverse existing folds and wrinkles. Fortunately, we can assist you if you are unhappy with the appearance of your skin. Minimizing or erasing fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds improves light reflection on the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Here, we answer some of the most common questions surrounding wrinkle treatment.

What causes wrinkles?

Aging. Young people create a lot of healthy skin cells, collagen, and elastin, which keeps the face smooth and youthful. The synthesis of collagen and elastin, as well as the replication of new skin cells, slows as we age, resulting in thinner, less healthy skin with reduced suppleness. As we age, we lose fat as well, resulting in sagging and drooping in addition to volume loss. How we age is also determined by the genetics of our skin. Thicker skin with natural oils, for example, will age far more gracefully than thin, light skin.

It’s no secret that the sun’s UVA/UVB/UVC and infrared rays cause skin damage. Sun exposure promotes ageing and causes skin cancer, as seen by sunburns and skin cancer.

Repetitive face movements — whether intentionally or unconsciously performed, repeated motions can also cause wrinkles. This is known as neuromodulation. (The nerves cause the muscle to move, and the repeated movement causes tissue breakdown and skin memory). Consider a crisply pressed shirt – the shirt wrinkles and creases in the regions where you sit, stand, and move during the day while you wear it and sit, stand, and move. Your skin can be affected in the same way. Collagen and elastin break down after years of frequent movement, causing secondary wrinkles and creases in the skin.

Sleeping with the same side of your face against a pillow, similar to repeated movements, can put pressure on the skin, breaking down collagen in that area, and as we age, new collagen is created at a slower rate, causing fine lines and wrinkles to emerge.

Hereditary predisposition – certain people are naturally more prone to wrinkles due to a genetic predisposition. If you have parents or grandparents who have visible fine lines and wrinkles, take steps to keep your skin healthy and wrinkle-free as soon as possible.Families frequently grow up in the same geographical location, and environmental factors such as the sun, pollution, and other factors compound heredity.

Pollution and smoking – free radicals formed by UV rays from the sun, pollution, cigarette smoke, and other toxic elements can break down healthy cells and impede the formation of collagen and elastin, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles.

What is the best non-surgical treatment for wrinkles?

The best non-surgical wrinkle treatments are determined by the wrinkle’s type and origin. We divide wrinkles into two types: dynamic and adynamic wrinkles. This distinguishes between wrinkles that express themselves, or dynamic wrinkles, and wrinkles that do not express themselves, or adynamic wrinkles.

All wrinkles and texture will improve with a medical-grade, or cosmeceutical, skin care routine. No matter what is causing the skin’s texture changes, this is always the best, safest, and most cost-effective strategy to treat it. A combinationese formulation is used to address age issues on the skin. Your expectations, allotted healing time, baseline health, finances, underlying skin issues, and genetics all factor into the optimal therapy for your skin.

How do you get rid of deep wrinkles?

When it comes to treating deeper wrinkles, the combineese technique, which we outlined above for more superficial dynamic and adynamic wrinkle changes, is still used. Skincare products, neuromodulators (Botox-like medications), fillers and peels, microneedling, and lasers are still used to treat deeper creases. Deeper wrinkles, on the other hand, usually necessitate more treatments and often require a more aggressive treatment strategy that includes more fillers and a deeper laser treatment. Treatments that are lighter to medium in intensity would necessitate a series of treatments.

Can wrinkles be reversed?

While a dermatologist may not be able to fully erase the signs of aging, they are often able to significantly improve the overall appearance of the skin by using one or a combination of treatments customized to your individual needs. Depending on the number of fine lines and wrinkles, depth, and amount of sun exposure, wrinkles may require multiple treatments, but amazing results can often be achieved. Once you ‘get skin fit’ you can ‘stay skin fit’ with an excellent maintenance program.

Can wrinkles be prevented?

Along with many other skin health issues, prevention is the most effective thing you can do for facial wrinkles. Using strong sun protection and a good anti-aging regime on a regular basis will help your skin appear great as you get older. The finest thing you can do for your skin’s long-term health is to avoid wrinkles and skin changes caused by the sun. We can help you establish a plan to keep your skin looking beautiful as you age when you consult with a dermatologist at Etwall Dental Practice.
