What is the cause of wrinkles?

With time, you will start to notice that your "laugh lines" evolve into real wrinkles, which remain visible even after you stop laughing or talking. Your skin loses elasticity due to the effect of the earth's gravity that constantly pulls your skin downwards, but also due to a progressive loss of collagen, the "glue" that holds everything together, organs, tissues, and of course the skin! Collagen is our most important structural protein, together with elastin, and the two begin to decline progressively by about 1% per year from the late twenties onwards... External factors also influence the production and breakdown of collagen fibres in the skin. Sun exposure, for example, smoking, but also certain dietary habits, such as frequent consumption of fast sugars.


The reference treatment for the treatment of wrinkles by collagen production is based on fractional radio frequency. The technique consists of completely destroying the weakened and broken fibres and then stimulating the production of new collagen in the deep dermis to give your skin a new youth. To do this, at Skincenters we use applicators equipped with 50 micro-needles to treat the zones in depth and ensure the best possible results. The treatment is carried out in 3 to 6 sessions of 30 to 60 minutes. In the second instance, other technologies can be used, such as the laser, and more specifically a combination of an ND:Yap and an ER:Yag laser: the former will stimulate collagen production deep inside the skin while the Erbium laser will puncture the epidermis to cause both collagen stimulation and skin renewal. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Ultrasound, or external bipolar radio frequency can also be used.
