There will come a time for all of us where wrinkles will slowly start to form. It is a natural process as we age. Typically, wrinkles will first appear in these two areas:

  1. For the face, it would be where the skin would fold in facial expression. Examples of such expressions would be smiling, frowning or squinting. 
  2. For the body: Particular parts, such as the face and neck, as they have received most of the sun’s exposure. These harmful UV rays cause the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin to break down. 

Wrinkles are formed due to the skin becoming thinner, drier and less elastic, decreasing the chances of protecting itself from damage. These lines deepen and become permanent grooves over the lifespan of the individual. 

The effect of wrinkles on individuals would vary as it is dependent on two things: (a) structural and functional differences in the skin and (b) environmental and lifestyle choices like smoking and drinking alcohol. 

It would be best to start addressing these issues at a younger age as the skin is better able to bounce back.

Here are two recommended treatments: 

1) Botox

Also known as anti-wrinkles injections, this treatment targets the muscles that cause contradictions by blocking the nerve signals. As these muscles start to relax, the wrinkles will gradually soften, giving the individual a more refreshed and youthful appearance.  

For the process of this treatment, it only takes a few minutes to inject the skin and the results will begin with full effect in 7 to 10 days. Over the course of 3 to 6 months, the effects will fade as the contractions will return. A simple repeat treatment is all it takes to maintain the desired effects.

2) Dermal fillers – Filler Hydrolift

With its key ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid, dermal fillers are able to decrease wrinkles while increasing the volume to the skin. It also helps to stimulate collagen production, which smoothens and refreshes the skin.  

Taking only 30 to 45 minutes, this treatment requires no downtime and results start to show within 2 to 3 weeks. The effects will last for 4 to 6 months, depending on the lifestyle choices (proper rest, exercise and a healthy diet). A maintenance procedure may be required, which vary for every individual
