Wrinkles are lines or creases in the skin. They can form anywhere on the body, but are especially noticeable on the corners of the eyes and mouth and on the neck. You can also develop wrinkles on the arms, especially at the elbows, at the chest, and around your abdomen and stomach.
As you are, your skin naturally becomes less elastic, as it stops producing collagen and elastin. In addition, fat in the deeper layers of your skin diminishes, and the lessened production of natural oils causes your skin to be drier. As your skin becomes more slack, less full and less elastic, wrinkles and fine lines can appear.
If you are concerned about the appearance of your wrinkles, especially wrinkles on your face, there are surgical approaches that can help lessen or diminish their appearance.
A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a popular and effective way to restore youthfulness to the face, including by reducing and eliminating the appearance of wrinkles. During a facelift procedure, which is performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation or under general anesthesia, your surgeon will make incisions within the ear and behind the ears, as well as at the temple or scalp. Your skin is then carefully raised from the face and neck area, and liposuction under the chin or fat grafting to the face is performed, if required. Excess skin is then carefully removed and sutured.
BodyTite is a type of procedure that is used to reduce and eliminate localized collections of unwanted fat and loose skin. It is performed under local anesthesia, which is gently inserted into the fat intended to be removed. This anesthesia numbs and expands the fat cells, which are exposed to ultrasound energy. This energy gently heats and melts the fat, which is then extracted. The area where the fat has been removed is then shaped.
Botox is a type of injectable treatment that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by inducing temporary relaxation of facial muscles. At Spamedica, Botox vials are injected into the treatment area, which can be the forehead, neck, or around the eyes, to relax muscles and temporarily smooth the appearance of the face. Botox patients will require repeat follow-up treatments to maintain their more youthful appearance.
A fractional CO2 laser treatment passes microscopic columns of energy into deep layers of the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. Skin cells will grow back stronger and firmer, resulting in smoother and more evenly toned skin, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
A SilkPeel uses a gentle device that exfoliates the skin, promoting the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. This type of treatment also moisturizes dry and flaky skin, which brightens the skin’s overall appearance. During a SilkPeel treatment, a device is applied to the outer layers of the skin, removing dead skin cells and oils through a vacuum. The device also uses pneumatic pressure to infuse vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants into deep layers of skin.
Dermabrasion is a type of non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses physical abrasion (gentle scrubbing) to remove the outermost superficial layer of skin, and promote new tissue healing. Dermabrasion can help eliminate wrinkles by promoting the production of collagen, which can help your skin appear more full, more youthful, and less creased.
The cost of treating your wrinkles at SpaMedica will depend on the type of procedure you choose. Surgical procedures, such as a facelift, tend to be more costly than non-surgical procedures; however, if you choose non-surgical treatment such as Botox injectables or dermabrasion, you will require repeat, follow-up appointments in order to maintain your results, and your results will be less drastic overall. At SpaMedica, the facelift cost begins at $18,999, while the cost of Botox begins at $11 to $16 per unit.
