Is it a matter of facial expressions or age? Types of wrinkles

Before you buy anti-aging cosmetics or sign up for a procedure, you need to figure out what is the cause of wrinkles. This will help you choose the care that will be effective for your skin. Experienced cosmetologists at Olympus Clinics study the anatomy of the face in depth. At the consultation, they will ask about your lifestyle, evaluate your facial structure and make an individual plan for harmonizing your appearance. 

Other types of wrinkles:

Gravitational: They appear due to the drooping of the soft tissues of the face and the weak connective framework of the skin. They may appear in young patients due to sudden weight loss. 
Age-related: Associated with the aging process, when the production of collagen and elastin in the skin decreases. They are deeper and more pronounced than facial wrinkles. 

Where are facial wrinkles localized?

The distribution of facial lines is related to the activity of the corresponding muscles. Collected types of facial wrinkles:

  • Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead: Horizontal lines, especially noticeable when raising eyebrows. 

  • Horizontal wrinkles on the bridge of the nose: Or "anger wrinkles". The muscle in the bridge of the nose is connected to the frontal one, so vertical lines between the eyebrows may occur at the same time. 

  • Wrinkles around the eyes: Also known as "crow's feet". They occur in patients who often laugh or frown. 

  • Wrinkles around the mouth: Pouch wrinkles are transverse folds around the mouth. It occurs in smokers and patients with connective tissue diseases such as scleroderma. Mentolabial, or "puppet lines" are vertical folds that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin.

  • Nasolabial wrinkles: The lines start at the wings of the nose and go to the corners of the mouth. They can give a tired look to the face, as well as visually age it.

  • Wrinkles on the neck: They occur due to active movements of the neck and chin. Visible on the front and side surfaces of the neck.

How to prevent facial wrinkles?

The best way is to use a high SPF sunscreen to protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Smoke less and drink plenty of water. Do not forget to moisturize your skin daily with a cream that contains peptides and vitamin A.

And how to eliminate the existing ones?

Botulinum therapy at Olympus Clinics is a procedure for natural facial rejuvenation, without changing facial expressions. Botulinum toxin is a protein that blocks the transmission of signals between nerves and muscles, temporarily relaxes muscles. This leads to the removal of muscle pressure in the area of folds, lines and to their smoothing. Our specialists use certified preparations Myotox, Xeomin and Dysport. Before the procedure, the cosmetologists of Olympus Clinics will ask you what imperfections are bothering you and what result will be ideal for you. 

How does it work?

How long does the procedure take?

On average, botulinum therapy takes 30-40 minutes.

How old can I get botulinum therapy?

Botox injections can be performed in patients aged 18 years and older.
