Young-looking skin without wrinkles is the dream of many women and men. However, mimic and static wrinkles are a completely natural phenomenon related to the action of UV radiation and muscle work. In addition, the formation of wrinkles is influenced by: unhealthy lifestyle (stimulants, little sleep), excessive exposure to the sun and poor hydration.
Mimic wrinkles, which belong to the group of dynamic wrinkles, are related to facial expressions and appear already around the age of 25.
Static wrinkles appear much later, and their appearance is associated with a decrease in the water level in the cells and the relaxation of collagen and elastin fibers. The skin becomes less plump, looks tired and dry.
Estetica offers two methods of removing wrinkles - botulinum toxin and filling with hyaluronic acid.
Filling treatments with hyaluronic acid are used to fill wrinkles, cheek volumetry, face modeling and improve the face’s oval contour. Hyaluronic acid preparations are in the form of a crystalline and plastic gel. When applied in the wrinkle, the preparation binds water and increases the volume of the given area, smoothing out wrinkles. These preparations are injected into the dermis, where they supplement the deficiency of hyaluronic acid, moisturize the skin, fill wrinkles, give volume, model the contour of the face and stimulate natural regeneration processes.
Mimic wrinkles are eliminated with botulinum toxin, a strong natural neurotoxic protein. It inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for impulses passing between the nerves and the muscles. As a result, there is no contraction of the muscle, it goes into the state of relaxation. The use of botulinum toxin allows you to get rid of mimic wrinkles on the forehead and reduce the visibility of crow's feet.
The effects of the filler on the face last for about 8-12 months, so it can be assumed that the treatment should be repeated after a year.
In the case of botulinum toxin, repeating the treatment after about 6 months is recommended.
The effects of the filling are visible immediately after the treatment. The corners of the mouth are raised, bags under the eyes and nasolabial folds disappear, the face gains a fresh, rested look.
Effects such as smoothing forehead furrows, reducing the visibility of crow's feet and frown lines are visible after a few to several days and last for 4 to 6 months.
