FINE LINES & WRINKLES
What are fine lines and wrinkles?
As we age, we lose our natural hyaluronic acid supplies and as a result, our skin becomes less hydrated, less plump and less firm. They are folds or creases in the skin which are due to age, sun damage, temporarily if you have been in water for a prolonged period or due to habitual sleeping positions.
You can prevent wrinkles by avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun and wearing a good SPF, keeping hydrated and healthy, avoiding alcohol and smoking and making sure you are getting enough sleep. You can also avoid squinting by wearing glasses if you need them and good quality sunglasses if you are in the sun. A good skin care regime will keep the skin hydrated and a healthy diet include lots of vegetables and good quality fish to get omega oils in to your diet which help to keep the skin hydrated and plump. If they are particularly noticeable and affecting your self esteem Botox and Profhilo are cosmetic procedures that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid gel which stimulates the body’s production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin resulting in an improvement in skin laxity and an overall smoother, more youthful appearance. Skin quality, texture and hydration should be visibly improved after Profhilo treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles will be less visible and patients can expect increased skin firmness and elasticity lasting approximately six to eight months.
