Facelift for Wrinkles & Sagging Skin
Aesteem Specializes In Skin Rejuvenation
As our skin ages and matures, wrinkles and fine lines are formed. Wrinkles are ridges and folds in the skin. Fine lines are small creases most frequently found around the eyes and mouth. Gravitational wrinkles occur due to the effects of gravity, caused by a deflation of the tissues above the wrinkle. They usually appear as “sagging skin”.
Common Causes Of Wrinkles And Fine Lines
Smokers are more prone to expression wrinkles. Not only is blood supply to the skin affected, the repeated action of smoking a cigarette can lead to wrinkles around the mouth.
From time to time, our faces are in direct contact with sun light. Over time, this can damage the skin and cause a variety of conditions, including wrinkles and fine lines.
Ageing causes collagen and elastin to breakdown beneath the surface of the skin. This causes skin to become less supple, smooth and elastic. When they both break down, wrinkles and fine lines start to appear.
Another tell-tale sign of ageing is when skin starts to sag and droop. At younger ages, our skin naturally produces many substances that help it bounce back into place and keep it from sagging.
But as we get older, the effects of cumulative sun damage hinders our skin’s ability to make these youth-preserving components. This causes the rubber band–like elements in the skin to fray and break, which results in the sagging you see.
The skin around our eyes is thinner and sags from repeated habits, such as squinting, smiling, and sun damage.
As we tend to scrunch it for deep expressions, the forehead is likely be one of the first places on the face to sag.
Laugh Lines Droopy Cheeks
As we advance in years, our cheeks gradually sag due to lack of collagen in the skin.
Non-Surgical Facelift Treatments
Aesthetic treatments designed to correct wrinkles and sagging skin are primarily aimed at inducing a controlled damage to the deeper skin layer without hurting skin surface to accelerate natural collagen and elastin production which is the key to youthful looking skin. There are also other more superficial quick fixes that tighten and lift facial appearance and HA fillers restore skin volume.
