Various factors and phenomena accelerate the aging process: some people can be affected by wrinkles from the age of twenty.

What are wrinkles?

Collagen and elastin are two structural type proteins: they are both responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin. Their gradual degradation, both quantitative and qualitative, will weaken the skin: it is less and less toned.

Added to this is an altered production of hyaluronic acid which will promote dehydration of the skin.

Furrows hollow the skin: these are wrinkles , the first sign of age. These folds are barely noticeable at the very beginning: these are fine lines , which are less than 1mm deep.

With age, the melting of subcutaneous fat is also responsible for the downward shift in facial volumes and contributes to sagging skin which gradually sets in: the forehead, temples and cheekbones.

All these modifications gradually transform the face and can motivate a consultation in aesthetic medicine .

The different types of wrinkles

Two types of wrinkles should be distinguished: static wrinkles and expression wrinkles . This distinction is essential because the type of treatment differs according to function.

Static wrinkles : present in a state of rest, static wrinkles are most often secondary to the aging process of the skin . We find nasolabial folds, the valley of tears , chin wrinkles, neck and décolleté wrinkles.

Expression or dynamic wrinkles result from repeated contractions of facial muscles. They are favored by habits such as squinting or frowning . These expression lines also end up being marked even in a state of muscular rest. Among the dynamic wrinkles , we find:

  • The glabellar wrinkle or lion’s wrinkle : it is located between the two eyebrows and gives the upper third of the face a constantly severe appearance, a very frequent reason for consultation.
  • Crow’s feet wrinkles: around the eyes, they form around the eyes and undergo the contraction of the orbicularis muscle.
  • The lines of bitterness: they start from the corners of the lips towards the chin and give a sad look to the face
  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles: consequence of the expressiveness of the upper third of the face.
  • Sun pleat wrinkles: these wrinkles, also known as barcode wrinkles, are very frequently found in smokers. They are located above the upper lip.

The different causes of wrinkles

Skin aging is the main cause of wrinkles. Lifestyle also plays a significant role in accelerating this process: an unbalanced diet, insufficient sleep, prolonged and unprotected exposure to the sun, smoking, but also genetic predisposition are involved in the process of aging.

In addition, an adapted skin routine is a guarantee of good skin health.

The solutions offered at Skin Marceau to remove or reduce wrinkles

Depending on your needs , we are able to advise you on the most appropriate procedures and treatments:

  • Hyaluronic acid injections : our dermatologists inject hyaluronic acid to reduce static wrinkles. This molecule will fill the loss of volume and rehydrate the skin. In addition, our dermatologists are trained in the MD Codes technique which allows global management of facial aging: several injection points are determined, according to a precise map and can be modulated according to the needs of our patient.
  • Botulinum toxin injections : they are aimed at dynamic wrinkles since botulinum toxin helps control the movements of the muscles responsible for wrinkles. It is quite possible to combine hyaluronic acid injections with botox when the indication is present.
  • Facial mesotherapy : mesotherapy is based on the injection of an infusion of revitalizing ingredients to give your face a real boost of radiance . It is a treatment that allows the maintenance of the good health of your skin. The skin is deeply hydrated and its tone is preserved.

Facial rejuvenation : at Skin Marceau, we perform fractional co2 laser abrasion to treat facial wrinkles. This technique allows skin cell renewal: it is the abrasion of the superficial layers of the skin. Treating wrinkles with laser also provides a tightening effect.

The results of wrinkle treatments

Depending on the techniques used, the results differ. For injections of hyaluronic acid and Botox Ⓡ, the duration of the effects varies depending on the area treated and a maintenance protocol is necessary to guarantee stable and long-lasting results.

As part of the treatment of facial wrinkles with laser, the protocols vary depending on the depth of the wrinkles.

Our dermatologists always take the time to give you the information you need to make your choice. The objective is to obtain a natural, harmonious and satisfying result.

The precautions to be taken upstream as well as downstream of the fair are explained to you in order to guarantee the safety and effectiveness of any treatment.
