Can You Prevent Wrinkles? White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic Shares How...


The doctors and team at White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic say, "yes, you can prevent wrinkles." You can't prevent them forever, but you can take steps to protect yourself from #prematureaging. To begin, it's good to understand how wrinkles are formed as there are a few contributors.


Wrinkles can be caused as we age from the loss of volume in the face. These are larger wrinkles that generally need to be lifted or filled with hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane. Our #physicians are highly trained and experienced in the use of #dermalfillers to give natural looking results. For example, if you find the lower portion of your face is looking "heavy" or "sad" from marionette lines, filler may be used along the cheekbones where volume has been lost to help lift the skin from the lower face and therefore reduce the appearance of lines. There may also be a need to inject directly underneath lines or wrinkles of this nature to lift them directly and smooth out the skin.


The second type of wrinkle is considered dynamic wrinkles. As the skin ages, it naturally loses elasticity and collagen production decreases, leaving the skin unable to bounce back from repeated motions. As we frown, smile, scrunch our nose, squint our eyes repeatedly, those lines in the skin start to stay put, even when we aren't moving our face. That's why crow's feet (eye squinting) and frown lines/elevens (brow furrowing) are extremely common and often the first wrinkles to appear.


This leads to the answer to the question asked, "Can you prevent #wrinkles?". Many younger people are beginning to understand that there is a two step approach to preventing aging from coming on too quickly. Step one is proper skin care. Collagen boosting products like exfoliators and retinol, proper sun protection, vitamins and antioxidants to protect and repair damage, as well as the right cleanser and moisturizers. All of these can keep your skin stronger, repair and prevent damage and lead to better skin quality.


The second step is wrinkle relaxing injections that you can do at White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic before or after wrinkles begin to appear. The neuromodulator in Botox and Dysport prevents the muscle from moving, temporarily and safely. By restricting the movement of these muscles that create these dynamic lines and wrinkles, you can lessen the impact. No movement means reduced wrinkles. Many of clients start to come in close to their 30th birthday to start preventing the look of aging that may just be starting to show.
