Even though laugh lines may remind you of the happy times, you don’t necessarily need creases and wrinkles to keep memories alive.
It is a common misconception that facial lines are only caused by ageing. There are a lot of other factors that contribute to it such as smoking, genes, skin types and sun damage. Face wrinkles can either be in the form of fine lines or deep furrows.
While some factors such as age and genes are inevitable, others like smoking can be avoided. Irrespective of the reason, the medical and cosmetic industry is brimming with treatments for wrinkles.
Intense Pulled Light
This is a ReFirme skin procedure that combines bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and light energy (IPL) to smooth out wrinkles and tighten the skin. Not only this, but it also enhances the skin’s texture by making it more luminous and toned.
The procedure involves using the two energies to target dermal tissues and heat them up to stimulate production of collagen. Since collagen is the agent that forms the structure of the skin, its production visibly has a firming effect.
Even though the heat produced is tolerable, in order to avoid discomfort to patients with lower pain thresholds, a hydrating gel is applied.
This is a procedure suitable for all skin types and shows results after a few sessions.
This is probably the single most popular skin treatment that has taken the cosmetic industry by a storm. It is a cosmetic injection for face lines, wrinkles, stress lines, crow’s feet or furrows.
Botox® (botulinum toxin type A) cosmetic is approved by Health Canada and is increasingly performed to reduce expression lines and give the face a youthful lift.
This procedure works by relaxing the muscles and then injecting Botox®. It is also referred to as liquid facelift. The injection tightens the skin and erases deep-set lines to make the face look younger.
The needle used during the procedure is very fine making the experience pain-less. Even though the treatment is minimally invasive, its popularity across the globe is unmatched.
