Facial Wrinkles

Facial Wrinkles

During youth, our skin is young, smooth and wrinkle-free.

As we get older, due to unavoidable chronological aging and environmental factors like photo-aging, wrinkles appear more and more and unless we use target treatments to erase them they will continue to worsen and will become deeper. Wrinkles develop due to the incorrect repair of injured elastic and collagen fibers over a period of time.

Causes of facial wrinkles:

  1. Chronological aging with telomeres shortening
  2. Photo-aging due to UVA and UVB exposure and infra-red
  3. Glycation as an inevitable process of aging but also induced by high sugar intake
  4. Environmental toxicities: pollution, ionized radiation, food additives
  5. Smoking
  6. Alcohol

 

There Are Two Main Types of Wrinkles:

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles occur naturally on an animated face. We smile, laugh, cry and frown and while expressing our emotions these lines become more obvious. As we become older, collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid decrease, compromising the skin’s elasticity and structure. Some of those dynamic wrinkles eventually transform into static wrinkles.

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles are essentially permanent lines on the face formed everlastingly due to the inadequate repair of elastic and collagen fibers. They can appear in the area of repeated facial expression (like crows feet) or independently in any part of the face. Often, there is a wrong impression that static lines can be removed with Neuromodulator (BonTA) by relaxing a muscle. At 8th Sense, we provide scientifically proven anti-aging advice and treatments for keeping static wrinkles at bay.*

Types of Static Wrinkles

  • Forehead wrinkles and frown lines
  • Crow’s feet and smile lines
  • Tear troughs
  • Nasolabial lines
  • Smoker’s lines and perioral lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Neck wrinkles

8th Sense’s Approach

Now it’s easier than ever to look younger than your age. Our signature treatment at 8th Sense is the so-called Liquid Face Lift. It combines BonTA and Fillers. This treatment will deliver a fresh and natural look with minimal or no downtime.*

We have also adopted the new approach of 3D Facial Rejuvenation. This method does not only work on superficial facial wrinkles, but it incorporates a deep volume restoration of the face. This creates a look that appears younger than usually anticipated.*

Synergistically with Liquid facelift and 3D facial rejuvenation we use MDTm Codes to ensure that facial rejuvenation and volume restoration is done using “Divine Proportions” or “Golden Ratio” principles for beautification. This was also used to achieve balance and beauty in many Renaissance sculptures and paintings, including Leonardo da Vinci’s work. Our aesthetic work has changed over time from simply erasing wrinkles to creating deeper beautification synergies. Hence, every patient can become the best aesthetic version of themselves.

Recommended Wrinkle Treatments

BonTA For Dynamic Wrinkles

More about BonTA can be found on www.8thsense.co.za

Dermal Fillers for Static Wrinkles

Dermal fillers are injected in order to create more volume and give your skin a youthful look. Wrinkles, most commonly treated with dermal fillers, include nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and vertical lip lines but any static wrinkle can be treated with a filler! New generation fillers are designed for a specific area of the face and at a particular depth in order to deliver more precise results. They are longer lasting (18 months usually) and can achieve great tissue integration. In other words, the place where have they been injected is not visible and there are no “bumps and lumps” that were seen with old generation fillers. 8th sense uses JUVÉDERM®  (Allergan.Inc ) and EMERVEL® ( Galderma ) fillers.*
