Lines and Wrinkles Treatments Glasgow

Everyone has lines and wrinkles. Some people seem to 'age' better than others, escaping with very few lines and wrinkles. Other people seem to have deep wrinkles and lines; for some of our clients, they are very conscious of these facial lines and marks, and feel that they would like them treated so that their impact is reduced.

But what causes lines and wrinkles and what treatments are available?

The Causes of Facial Lines and Wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles treatment Glasgow-based specialist Allure Aesthetics will tell you that facial lines are perfectly natural and caused by several factors:

  • > Dynamic lines - these are the wrinkles that are naturally caused when the facial muscles contract to create expressions such as smiling, frowning etc. Repeated use and contraction of these muscles break down the collagen fibres that support the skin, hence lines and wrinkles are formed. As the skin becomes more and more creased from these 'facial expressions' the lines and indentations remain visible on the skin even when we are not smiling or frowning.
  • > Skin plumpness is lost - in our childhood and youth, our skin tends to be plumper and fuller looking. As we age, we lose this ripeness to our skin hence we become more 'gaunt' looking. This can be seen in the event of dramatic weight loss for example. This loss of volume within the skin contributes to the bagginess that we see when we look in the mirror and contributes to facial wrinkles and lines.
  • > Gravity - there is no escaping the pull of gravity! Unfortunately, gravity pulls the skin on our face down and causes various parts of the face to droop. For example, the cheeks can sag and this leads to facial lines called 'nasolabial lines' that run from the corners of the mouth to the nose.
  • Sleep lines- Not the most obvious of causes but the compression of the skin by its contact with the pillow can contribute to deep lines. These lines are not created by muscle contraction but by pressure of the pillow on the skin; this puts pressure on the skin 'attachments' and can leave sleep lines on certain areas of the face.

Once we Know What Causes Lines and Wrinkles, Can They be Treated?

Yes they can with several options to choose from. The treatment that will suit you best can be selected by working with lines and wrinkles treatment Glasgow-based specialist, Allure Aesthetics.

Dynamic lines can be treated with muscle relaxing injections into specific muscles that leave lines and wrinkles on the skin. Botox is a muscle relaxing injection treatment and has grown in popularity for treating lines and wrinkles, mainly down to the fact that it works quickly on the face. Botox does not paralyse the whole face as some people believe, but is injected into specific problem areas of the face such as the glabellar (frown lines). The Botox relaxes the muscles meaning they do not crease as readily or easily. 

The plumpness of skin that so many of us desire can be regained with the use of dermal fillers also available from lines and wrinkles treatments Glasgow-based clinic Allure Aesthetics. Dermal fillers are used to 'plump out' deeper lines and wrinkles, as well as being used to plump other areas of the face such as the cheeks.

With the right treatments and therapies, facial wrinkles and lines can be minimised. To get the best therapy for you, why not see how lines and wrinkles treatment specialists Allure Aesthetics can help you.
