Wrinkles are something that no one can escape; as the hands of time march on, so does the aging process. We begin to see the signs of aging forming with small little creases that form around the corners of our eyes and mouth. Inevitably, these creases begin to form into fine lines and wrinkles all over the face that eventually deepen and become permanently etched into our appearance as our skin softens and sags. While all of this sounds rather daunting, the truth is that you can still actively employ some excellent anti-aging strategies to help target wrinkles, and promote skin tightening and rejuvenation. At Sovereign Skin, we have some excellent tools and professional wrinkles treatment Toronto in our arsenal to help you along the way!
Through a variety of laser treatments, wrinkles and fines lines can be addressed by ablating a very fine layer of skin. The heat and precision- controlled laser treatments will promote healthier and younger looking skin with each pass of the laser.
When it comes to lasers, the greater the number of passes over the treated area will result in a deeper resurfacing of the skin. This also will create a longer downtime period, but better the results. Recovery from laser skin resurfacing for wrinkles usually takes 3-7 days and repeat treatments may be necessary for this non-surgical procedure.
Some of the best laser technology to target wrinkles is offered at Sovereign Skin, such as the Fotona and Alma brand of technologies. Having a wide range of lasers, such as the IPL, AFT, Erbium, ND: YAG and CO2 laser to choose from helps us to provide you with the wrinkles treatment Toronto that is most suited to your skin and skin concerns.
Laser resurfacing is just one of the tools we use to target wrinkles and fine lines; after a consultation with one of our Sovereign Skin medical professionals, we will be able to decide which laser is the best choice to use for your wrinkles treatment Toronto.
Dermal fillers are surging in popularity around the globe as one of the best treatments for wrinkles.
Skillfully injected hyaluronic acid filler can help mask deep lines, smooth out contours that are losing volume and re-create definition where sagging skin creates jowls along the jawline. Injectable filler can target marionette lines (also known as smoker’s lines) around the mouth and fill in the deep creases that form around the nose and mouth, which are also called nasolabial folds. Lip fillers can also be used to smooth out fine wrinkles in and on the lips.
Most Dermal Fillers available on the market in Canada last approx. 6 months to 1 year. The longevity of the hyaluronic acid filler can depend on the location of the injection and the brand used. Some of the most recognizable and best brands in Canada are the Teoxane Teosyal line (including fillers such as Ultimate, Ultra Deep, RHA 3, RHA 4), Juvederm brands (including the Voluma and Volift lines) and Restylane.
Neuromodulators, such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are also excellent options. You can read up on the benefits of Botox and our educational material and articles by clicking here.
Microneedling also provides a benefit for our aging skin. Microneedling targets dry, dull looking skin that has lost its’ youthful glow and luminosity.
At Sovereign Skin, we use the V2 Beauty Booster system which also hydrates the skin with a non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid called Redensity I.
This beauty booster targets the tone and texture of the skin, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. A series of 3 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart will result in an overall improvement in the appearance of the skin. It is an excellent skin booster treatment that is effective and has won European beauty awards for its de-stressing skin properties.
The process itself takes only about 30 minutes, with additional time factored in for a numbing cream to be applied prior to treatment. Using the V2 Beauty Booster handpiece, tiny needle point marks are stamped into the skin in a consistent, controlled pattern. These microscopic needles (9 per stamp for the face) inject the Redensity I product into the skin. The V2 Injector gun has a built in suction function to help decrease sensation, making the injection feel less painful. The multiple needles delivered at the same time essentially feel like one “zap” instead of 9 separate needles. This application method combine with the Redensity I to hydrate and repair the skin allowed this microneedling treatment for the improvement of wrinkles to be delivered with accuracy and precision. We have further detailed articles about microneedling located here if you are interested in learning more.
The wrinkle cream industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, since everyone is out to find the best wrinkle cream available. If you’re looking for anti-aging skincare that targets wrinkles and fine lines, there are a few considerations to take into account. Firstly, in Canada, all skincare lines sold in a physician’s office are allowed to have a higher percentage of active ingredients than drug store brands- therefore making them far more effective in targeting skin concerns.
Secondly, wearing a combination SPF moisturizer will also help to protect your skin from premature aging, as well as the formation of sun spots and age spots. Sun damage is also a major contributor to formation of wrinkles, which is why choosing an excellent wrinkle cream with SPF is very important. Thirdly, skin care products with high concentration of active ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C and glycolic acid will also help keep skin looking fresher and help combat wrinkles. At Sovereign Skin, we can help provide a customized skin analysis for you and make recommendations on appropriate eye serums, night serums, moisturizers, exfoliators and cleansers that are best suited for your skin type. We’ll guide you through the process and make sure that you are set up with a skin care regime you can commit to! Since we haven’t yet discovered the fountain of youth, the wrinkle treatments listed above are certainly the next best thing.
