What causes wrinkles?

Over the years, you will begin 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 down, but also due to a progressive version of collagen, the “glue” that holds everything together, organ and tissue, the skin too of course! Collagen is our most abundant structural protein along with elastin, and the two begin to degrade progressively by around 1% per year from the end of the 1920s… External factors also influence the production and degradation of collagen fibres in the skin. Sun exposure for example, smoking, but also certain foods, such as the regular intake of fast sugars.

Treatment

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 down fibers and then stimulating the production of new collagen in the deep dermis to give your skin a new youth. To do this, at Skinline Clinic we use applicators equipped with 50 microneedles to treat the zones in the deep dermis and ensure the best possible results. The treatment is carried out in 3 to 6 sessions of 30 to 60 minutes. Secondly, other technologies can be used, such as the Laser, and more specifically a combination of an ND:Yap and an ER:Yag laser: The first go deep inside the skin to stimulate collagen production 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.
