With age, the skin develops mechanisms which result in a significant decrease in the concentration of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which loses its firmness, hydration and elasticity.
Fine wrinkles appear from the age of 20, mainly around the forehead, around the eyes and mouth. It is associated not only with the physiological, and therefore natural aging process, but also with facial expressions (e.g. raising eyebrows, arranging lips in a characteristic way, smiling, squinting, etc.). The formation of lines and furrows on the surface of the epidermis also has a genetic and hormonal background, and may also be determined by diet and lifestyle. Lack of sleep, low physical activity, resignation from regular hydration of the body, high exposure to sunlight and improper skin care can aggravate dryness and accelerate the formation of wrinkles.
Therefore, prevention and regular professional treatments are so important.
There are many ways to get rid of shallow wrinkles.
They include, among others:
the use of properly selected care,
protection of the skin against UV radiation and avoidance of tanning beds,
a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals,
What is the filling of shallow wrinkles?
In professional beauty salons and aesthetic medicine offices, you can use the service of filling wrinkles with hyaluronic acid (HA). This treatment gives a very quick effect and is safe at the same time. The skin becomes visibly smoother and the contour of the face is clearer.
This natural substance is introduced into the shallow layers of the skin with the help of thin cannulas. Due to the slight breach of tissue continuity, the mechanisms of cellular regeneration are activated, which stimulates the activity of collagen and elastin fibers. All of this results in the filling of wrinkles and a better tightening of the epidermis.
Aesthetic medicine treatments are primarily chosen by women over 40, mainly in the menopausal period.
