The visible process of skin aging involves the degradation of the skin, fat, muscles and bones. There is not one just one kind of technique to combat this aging process, but a combination of different techniques that repair and better yet, prevent the damaged caused over time. Wrinkles must be treated on an overall basis, using different techniques on different areas of the skin. In order to obtain optimal results, this often consists of a combination of techniques. Treatments are made to work on all different causes and at all different depths.
Hyaluronic acid retains 1000 times it's weight in water and is the essential factor in maintaining cutaneous hydration. It is normally produced by cells and fibroblasts, of which the activity diminishes with time. With the diminishing production of Hyaluronic acid, skin loses it's tone, wastes away and dehydrates.
Hyaluronic acid will be injected at different depths in order to pulp the skin. The more that is injected superficially, the more it hydrates the skin's epidermis and the more injected in depth, the better the results will be in regards to giving skin volume. This fills in the hollow areas that have been created by bone loss or by the wasting away of deep and superficial skin fat.
Botox works on the muscle structure of the upper third part of the face in order to diminish the muscular tension responsible for wrinkles on the forehead, crow's feet and frown lines. The relaxing of muscular tension in the face diminishes wrinkles in this way.
