When we are young, it seemed like time passed slowly. We wanted time to speed up, but it felt like it never shifted. Truthfully, you had a lot to look forward to – your sweet 16 (hello, boyfriend), 18 (adulthood and car) and early 20s (college, friends and reinventing yourself). For most people, these were the best years in their lives. In the main, you most likely enjoyed looking young and fresh. It didn’t seem like that time would end. But it does, and sometimes it can take you by surprise.
Thankfully, there is a solution if you notice signs of aging and want to do something about it. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we run a patient-focused practice, specialising in innovative and traditional anti-aging treatments, and we also offer dermal fillers and wrinkle injection treatment for the Dublin region and beyond.
As you age, your skin cells will start to turn over more slowly and your skin’s deeper layer starts to thin out. The skin will start to lose structure and elasticity, causing wrinkles. Years of facial muscle contractions, smiling and squinting and of sun exposure will also contribute to signs of aging.
To treat wrinkles, dermal fillers and botox are the two most common options that patients request at our cosmetic clinic in Castleknock, Dublin. With age, habitual facial contractions make wrinkles more visible, like the smile lines. Most common areas of complaint are between the eyebrows, forehead, mouth and crows’ feet.
The famous neurotoxin can diminish wrinkles and creases visible on the face by relaxing the muscles. This isn’t a permanent solution for wrinkles. You should talk to us about all available long term wrinkles treatments. Having said that, every treatment cycle, cheats time by about 4 to 6 months!
Another popular wrinkle treatment is dermal fillers. Instead of relaxing the muscles, fillers “fill” in the wrinkles, replacing lost tissue volume from within. Your natural collagen is what kept your face moisturized and elastic, but with age, collagen support breaks down. After injection, dermal fillers stimulate the production of natural collagen and hydrate the skin the region, causing improved surface texture in the months to come.
