Wrinkles are naturally occurring shallow lines or crevices that commonly form around the face, arms, neck, hands, and other parts of our bodies as we age. Though wrinkles are harmless, they affect our overall appearance.

At Lumiskins Dermatological Clinic, we provide safe wrinkle treatment and removal methods in Toronto to restore your appealing look.

Causes of Wrinkles

  • Exposure to sunlight

Exposure to sunlight (UV radiation) is one of the primary causes of wrinkle development; this is why they mainly occur on exposed parts such as the face and arms. When your skin is exposed to the sun, the UV rays penetrate it and damage the underlying connective fibers in the dermis. Damage to connective fibers (collagen and elastin) causes the skin to lose its elasticity leading to wrinkling. Fair-skinned people are more like to develop wrinkles due to exposure to sunlight.

  • Aging

The natural aging process causes elastotic degeneration, i.e., degenerative structural variation in elastic fibers (collagen and elastin). This causes the skin to lose its strength and elasticity leading to the formation of wrinkles. Also, with age, the production of natural oils reduces and the level of fat in the skin decreases causing the skin to be saggy with visible streaks and crevices.

  • Smoking

Smoking affects the normal blood supply to the skin which hastens its aging process. By doing so, it leads to the early formation of wrinkles.

  • Facial expressions

Smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions can lead to the formation of wrinkles. This is because, each time we make a facial expression, a groove forms underneath the skin’s surface. When the skin is healthy, these grooves spring back, but when the connective tissues are damaged, the grooves remain.

  • Genetics

Some families wrinkle more due to genetic factors.

Wrinkles Treatment Methods

Although wrinkles do not affect your health, removing them improves your looks and restores your skin’s health in the process. At Lumiskins, we provide you with the best wrinkles treatment methods in Toronto. These include:

  • Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers come in a variety of substances to choose from. These include hyaluronic acid, autologous fat, hydroxylapatite, lactic acid, or collagen. They’re usually injected into the dermis to treat deep wrinkles. Dermal fillers elevate the crevices and smoothen out the skin.

  • Botox

Botox, or botulinum toxin type A, is an injection derived from Clostridium botulinum bacteria. When injected into the facial muscles that induce wrinkles, they become paralyzed which makes the wrinkles disappear. The results last for about two to three months. This means that you require regular injections to maintain the acquired results.

  • Laser Therapy

Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-ablative wrinkle treatment that utilizes microbeams to heat the underlying surface of the target area. This triggers the skin to start a self-healing process leading to the formation of new, strong connective tissue (collagen and elastin). The skin becomes firm and smoothens out eliminating wrinkles. Several treatments are required to attain ideal results.

  • PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a skincare treatment that utilizes a high concentration of platelets extracted from the patient’s blood to trigger skin rejuvenation on the target area. When used in wrinkle treatment, PRP helps diminish lines and crevices by stimulating the production of new connective tissue which makes the skin firm eradicating wrinkles.

  • Ultherapy wrinkle treatment

Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound waves that are delivered to the deep layers of the skin to elicit collagen production. By doing so, your skin develops new connective tissues making it strong and firm which eradicates wrinkles.

  • Pevelle wrinkle therapy

Pevelle therapy is a skin treatment procedure that uses radiofrequency to treat wrinkles. It increases the production of collagen which leads to a firm and wrinkle-free skin. This treatment produces optimal results when combined with laser therapy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each wrinkle treatment works differently. For example, Botox utilizes a toxin that paralyzes facial muscles that are associated with wrinkles. Another example is laser treatment which enhances the production of collagen to help tighten the skin to regain its previous firm and smooth features. To cut it short, all our treatments work differently but they all aim to eliminate wrinkles and to restore your esthetics. To know which treatment method can be used for your wrinkles and how it works, book a complimentary appointment.

The treatment cost is depended on the extent of the affected areas, the condition of the wrinkles and the treatment method selected. The number of sessions also factor in on the cost. To know the exact cost of your wrinkle treatment, visit our clinic today for an examination.

The time taken for results to be visible depends on the type of wrinkles and the treatment method chosen. For example, if you have wrinkles due to expression, you may be given a Botox injection which takes effect almost immediately. Even if you notice optimal results, one is required to undergo a full treatment program for ideal results.

Like any other skincare treatments, wrinkle treatments may present some side effects. However, since some are noninvasive and all are non-surgical, the side effects are minimal to null. For example, laser therapy may cause slight reddening of the skin which disappears after a while.

Some treatments require injections which are a bit painful and uncomfortable while others are noninvasive. To prevent pain and discomfort during all the treatment sessions, we apply a topical anesthesia cream on the target area.
