How do we Define Wrinkle Therapy?
The skin ages, it is an unstoppable, natural and biological process which causes various skin changes which predominantly happens between the ages of 20 and 30. Fortunately, there are external factors that can delay this biological process, these include: a healthy diet, sufficient sleep and exercise. Of course on the flip side to this, Stress, unhealthy diet, consumption of alcohol and/or tobacco promotes the formation of wrinkles and aging skin.
In the course of the aging process, the moisture content and the content of fatty tissue in the subcutaneous tissue decrease. The breakdown of elastic collagen fibres also increases. This leads to the formation of wrinkles, mature skin shows reduced elasticity.
What Methods are Involved in Wrinkle Therapy?
Wrinkles can be treated either surgically or non-surgically and depending on the treatment, these will differ considerably in effort, result, indication, risks and costs. An operation is of course more complex than a simple injection with filler but surgery often offers more than Botulinum injections.
In the case of wrinkle therapy, the indication, i.e. the indication for treatment, also differs. For young women, surgery, e.g. a facelift, would be nonsense and totally unnecessary for older women, surgery is the only effective way to properly solve aged skin, fillers can only conceal the problem, not solve it.
This means: the techniques and methods for wrinkle smoothing do not compete with each other, but complement each other. In the following article, we provide an overview of the procedures and the differences that are available in the practice and clinic.
