Wrinkles and lines represent deterioration of the collagen and elastin of the skin. There are several factors that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. Smoking, genetics, adequate nutrition especially vitamin C which is essential to make new collagen, and UV exposure.
Lines that are made deeper during expression are easily softened with Botox® and Dysport®. These are tiny injections done by our board certified MD's. The treatment can take as little as 15 minutes and the results last 3-4 months and even longer with regular treatment.
The lines that are present that run up and down on the face are usually sleep lines or lines called elastosis and procedures such as Botox® can not improve them. Laser resurfacing, Fractional laser treatment and volume restoration and Sculptra® is the best route to improve these types of wrinkles
Experience matters when it comes to your face!
There is a topical cream called Planet Skincare, available at Vitality that has gone through the rigors of clinical trials proving a 82% improvement in fine lines and wrinkles with a twice a day application after 2-3 months of use. The mechanism is similar to Botox® and is founded on synthetic snake venom!
To prevent new lines and wrinkles it is essential to wear sunscreen to provides UVA and UVB protection. All skincare products at Vitality are medical grade. We have gone the extra step to ensure there are no paraben preservatives, which have been linked to breast cancer.
