LINES AND WRINKLES
Lines and Wrinkles Treatment in Columbus, Ohio
The skin on our face is the most exposed part of our body, so it’s no surprise that we pay a lot of attention to its appearance. Wrinkles are among the first signs of aging noticed by us and others and can be very telling of our age. Years of facial movements, sun damage, and loss of collagen naturally lead to those deep lines we all dread, but they don’t have to be a permanent feature!
Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles at Lotus Elite Aesthetics is effortless with our range of anti-aging treatments. You have a say in how you age and looking youthful is possible no matter how old you are.
Causes of wrinkles
There are a variety of factors that contribute to the formation of wrinkles. As our facial muscles contract repeatedly overtime, the overlying skin folds and begins to form lines that deepen with movement. These dynamic wrinkles appear most often on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and in the corners of the mouth. These facial wrinkles tend to develop much earlier in life, as soon as your early 20’s.
Naturally, with age, there is a sharp decline in elastin and collagen production that becomes prominent in your 30’s. These are the proteins that are responsible for maintaining the structure, firmness, and elasticity of the skin. Losing these proteins result in thinning, dry skin that begins to create folds and creases as the integrity of the skin is compromised.
The leading cause of wrinkling is due to the sun’s harmful UV rays, speeding up the natural aging process. Sun exposure breaks down collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of the skin, leading to the sagging and wrinkling we are familiar with.
Use sunscreen daily
Sunscreen should be worn daily– even indoors. Using an SPF of 35 and above is recommended, and reapplication every few hours will maintain protection from UV rays.
Your skin needs moisture to stay healthy and look youthful. Apply moisturizer twice a day, morning, and night. Look for products containing retinol, which helps improve skin texture by stimulating cell turnover.
Exfoliating accelerates skin cell turnover, softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Avoid alcohol and smoking
Alcohol and nicotine damage collagen and elastin fibers, two proteins that give skin strength and elasticity.
Regular exercise keeps your heart strong and blood flowing smoothly through your veins. Increased blood circulation provides nourishment, resulting in healthy skin.
A balanced diet full of fruits and vegetables will provide antioxidants that protect against free radicals and provide your skin with the essential nutrients needed to stay healthy.
We offer a wide range of customizable treatments that help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, preserving and restoring a youthful appearance. Our treatments are customizable and can be tailored to your individual needs and aesthetic goals.
Botox and Dysport
Botox, Dysport, and other botulinum toxin products are among the most popular wrinkle treatments for the prevention and treatment of dynamic lines in the face caused by muscle contractions, such as frown lines. Receiving injections prevent the overlying skin from folding, stopping the formation of new wrinkles and progression of existing ones. This anti-aging treatment is quick and painless, and suitable for all skin tones and skin types.
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is an injectable treatment option used to restore lost facial volume and smooth deeper lines and wrinkles. The filler is precisely placed into the wrinkle lines, plumping the tissue underneath, and minimizing the appearance of folds. As the filler draws in water, a plumping effect is created, restoring volume and softening problem areas such as lip lines. Deep wrinkles and facial lines are smoothed out, creating a more youthful appearance in the face.
Microneedling and RF microneedling
Microneedling and RF (radio frequency) microneedling are effective treatments that stimulate powerful collagen and elastin production to remodel the deeper layers of skin. As the natural healing process in the body is stimulated, the newly formed collagen and elastin restores the firmness and smoothness for a youthful appearance. In addition, microneedling and RF microneedling provide continual rejuvenation, with visible improvements continuing for several weeks following the treatment.
PDO threads combat the effects of gravity using surgical sutures to skillfully lift the facial muscles and skin, achieving a beautiful tightening effect. Using a cannula with pre-inserted threads, the PDO threads are placed into the face, and anchored to the muscle and overlying skin. These threads are then pulled to create a lift, later dissolving on their own. As the threads dissolve, they further rejuvenate the skin and stimulate new collagen production.
Viora skin tightening
Viora Skin tightening uses radio frequency and vacuum therapy to strengthen existing collagen fibers that have weakened over time due to aging and various forms of stress. Bipolar RF energy heats the dermis and stimulates collagen synthesis to strengthen existing collagen fibers for improvement in skin laxity, sagging, and texture. Immediate contraction of tissue fibers results in a smoother and tighter appearance of the skin.
