Lines & Wrinkles

As we get older, everyone develops facial lines and wrinkles, some give us personality, some are giveaway signs of being a little older than we may wish to admit to!

CACI technology can reduce these signs, improve the youthful expression of your face and ensure that the impression you want to leave, is the right one.

Types of facial line and wrinkles

Wrinkles that are caused by the contraction of muscles in facial expression. Repeated compression of the skin along these lines breaks down collagen fibres which support the skin to form specific lines and wrinkles. To start, these wrinkles can only be seen when the muscles contract e.g when you smile or frown, but, as the skin becomes progressively creased, the lines may more often appear at rest and in natural expression.

When we are younger, our faces are more plump. As time passes by, this volume is lost. Natural fat deposits around the eyes, cheeks, and forehead are depleted and this loss of volume leads to some sagging of the skin and the formation of wrinkles. Loss of facial volume also results in an older, more gaunt appearance, as is very often seen after dramatic weight loss. Microcurrent non-surgical facial toning can help to replace this lost volume - improving both wrinkles and the overall youthfulness of the face.

The inescapable draw of gravity pulls the skin downwards on the face. This leads to drooping of the cheeks and the formation of nasolabial lines (the lines from the corners of the mouth to the nose), jowls, drooping of the eye skin and formation of upper and lower lid laxity and wrinkles.

Sleep lines are often found on the forehead, around the eyes, cheeks and upper lip. They are not created by muscle contraction, they are caused by the compression of the skin from contact of the pillow to the face when sleeping. Their location is determined by the underlying attachments of the muscles of the face. Pillow contact puts pressure on these attachments and causes sleep lines.

Sun damage, smoking and poor diet can also cause a thinning and deterioration of the skin, also dehydration and a break down of collagen leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.

Skin resurfacing technologies like Orbital Microdermabrasion, and the Ultrasonic Peel can help to reduce the signs of premature lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of new collagen. Hydrating treatments like Hydratone can help to rehydrate the skin and plump out deep lines and wrinkles.
