As we get older, skin loses its elasticity and strength, leading to fine lines and wrinkles developing on the face. While natural, many people are interested in finding out how to treat wrinkles to reverse the signs of ageing and restore the skin to a more youthful look.
At Transform, we offer a variety of wrinkle fillers to help customers achieve the look they want. Both dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can be used to smooth out both fine and deeper lines to combat the signs of ageing.
Wrinkles can be caused by a combination of factors. One of the largest causes is sun exposure, as UVA rays damage collagen and elastin fibres, which results in wrinkled skin. Lifestyle habits such as smoking can also accelerate the ageing process as it reduces the blood supply, while drinking alcohol can also cause wrinkles by dehydrating skin.
However, the main cause of wrinkles is simply ageing. During the ageing process, wrinkles and lines develop as collagen and elastin fibres break down, meaning the skin loses its strength, flexibility and smoothness.
Usually, the body produces a new epidermis – which works as a physical barrier – every 60 days, but as we get older it takes much longer to renew itself. The amount of collagen and elastin in the dermis reduces, meaning the skin becomes less elastic, and the connection between fibroblasts and collagen starts to break. Additionally, collagen production slows down significantly after the age of 40. All of these factors combined can result in wrinkled skin.
Fine lines and wrinkles affect everyone, but those who work in the outdoors tend to develop wrinkles more quickly, and they also tend to be deeper in appearance.
If, like many of our customers, you want to reverse the signs of ageing then you’re probably interested in finding out what wrinkle filler treatments are available.
The most common treatments for wrinkles are over-the-counter wrinkle creams, which usually contain antioxidants and SPF to reduce the risk of sun damage. Anti-ageing supplements are also commonly used to revitalise the appearance. However, if you’re thinking about a more permanent, non-surgical solution, you may want to consider dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injections.
When considering how to treat both fine and deeper lines, anti-wrinkle injections may be a good option. Anti-wrinkle -injections are a non-surgical treatment that works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles in the face and relaxing them. This prevents them from being able to contract, which is the action that causes wrinkles, crow’s feet and frown lines. Anti-wrinkle injections can make wrinkles and lines less obvious and restore the skin to its former, more youthful appearance. With this treatment, a top up is often recommended around every four months to maintain a wrinkle-free look.
Alternatively, you may want to consider dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume. This treatment works by replicating a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in the body. This molecule’s primary function is to bind water, and acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints. It also transports nutrients around the body, and regulates the water balance in the skin. Therefore, dermal fillers can boost and revitalise the skin, whilst adding volume for a more natural, softer look. The effects of dermal fillers can last between 6 months and 2 years, making them a popular option for treating wrinkles.
When choosing Transform for your wrinkle treatment, you’ll be in the safe hands of one of the UK’s most trusted cosmetic surgery providers. Our professional practitioners and nurses prescribe offer exceptional care, and we’re proud to say that more than 95% of our customers agree by rating us as either ‘Good’ or ‘Excellent’ following their treatment.
At Transform, we only use temporary fillers, as permanent options have been known to result in long-term problems. We use four of the best FDA-approved wrinkle fillers available, meaning that you’ll be provided with the best treatment possible.
During your dermal filler treatment, a numbing cream will be applied so that you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. Next, a fine needle is used to administer the filler. With this treatment, the results are instant and will be visible straight away. There may be a small amount of swelling or bruising, but this usually subsides within 30 minutes and disappears completely within 48 hours. The treatment will take between 30 and 45 minutes and you’ll be able to go about your usual day to day afterwards.
If you choose anti-wrinkle injections, your treatment will follow a similar process to dermal fillers. Again, a numbing cream is applied prior to the injections, which are made with a fine needle. The treatment takes around 30 minutes, and works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles to smooth out any lines and wrinkles.
Popular areas to inject include the forehead, in between the eyebrows, or around the eyes. Which areas you choose to treat with be discussed prior to your appointment at your consultation. After the treatment, it’s recommended that you avoid tilting your head forwards for a while, and also avoid exercise for 24 hours afterwards. Be aware that it can take a few days for the muscles to relax and for the full results of these wrinkle treatments to show.
