How and why do wrinkles form?
Many wrinkles occur when we use our muscles to form facial expressions. The wrinkles formed during these expressions are called dynamic wrinkles. For example, when we smile our eye wrinkles become prominent and when we frown the vertical lines between our eyebrows become noticeable.
When we are young our skin springs back to its initial position after facial expression, but as we get older dynamic wrinkles remain on the skin to form static wrinkles; these are wrinkles and folds that are present at rest. This process occurs because of natural, substances such as collagen (the major structural protein in the skin), elastin (the protein that causes tissue to stretch) and hyaluronic acid (which gives skin volume) decrease with age. This together with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress all contribute to the creation of wrinkles and folds.
Fillers are a type of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine used to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. Common areas to inject fillers are in the face, neck, and hands, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers are among the most popular aesthetic procedures because they carry immediate results, very few risks and little recovery time.

A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the aging process.
The vampire facelift gets its name from the main rejuvenating ingredient: platelet-rich plasma from your own blood. Technically, it isn’t a facelift at all. There are no incisions and no skin is removed. But the procedure can make your face look and feel smooth and rejuvenated, like a facelift without the downtime.
The procedure uses a combination of an injectable filler, like Juvederm, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is taken from your own blood. This combination is injected into your skin to add volume to your face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and give your skin a more youthful look. PRP is the clear part of blood containing a high concentration of growth-promoting platelets. When injected into your face, PRP stimulates collagen, elastin, and fat cell growth, improving your skin’s texture.
Wrinkle reduction treatments work by enhancing your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin fibers, the two main building blocks of healthy, youthful skin.

Restoring fullness: What has been lost must be replaced. The approach is to replace the padding under the skin with a dermal filler, typically based on Hyaluronic Acid, which is nature’s own plumper. In fact, it is actually a structural component of skin, present in connective tissue throughout the human body. This filler has a remarkable capacity for attracting and retaining moisture. Our experts fill the depressions between the tendons and veins, making the hands and feet appear plumped up, softer and fuller.
Bringing back elasticity: To reinforce the staying power of the dermal filler and support skin elasticity, it is important to stimulate the production of collagen. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) rejuvenation solution is the ideal choice. It increases the quantum of healthy new tissue and collagen produced in a gradual and sustainable manner, by using the regenerative abilities of your own body to reverse visible signs of aging.
