Wrinkles

Diminish Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles can be treated effectively by promoting rapid elastin and collagen growth with the Opus. Significant results are seen after one treatment. Wrinkles are apart of the natural aging process and are most prominent on sun-exposed skin, such as the face, neck, hands, and forearms. Although genetics mainly determine skin structure and texture, sun exposure is the most popular cause of wrinkles, especially for people with lighter skin tones. There are many other contributing factors to cause wrinkling such as pollutants, smoking, etc.

Causes of wrinkles

Wrinkles are caused by a combination of factors that can and cannot be controlled. Here is a list of causes to take note:

Age

As you age, the skin becomes less elastic and more fragile. The skin produces fewer natural oils which dries the skin causing it to wrinkle.

Exposure to ultraviolet rays

UV light is known to speed the aging process and is the primary cause of wrinkling. The UV light breaks down the skin connective tissue which are the collagen and elastin responsible to keep the skin firmly intact.

Smoking

Smoking is known to accelerate the normal aging process of your skin which can also contribute to wrinkling. It is a known fact smoking directly affects the collagen.

Facial expressions

Facial movements and expressions when we squint, or smile can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. This happens because each time a facial expression is made, the muscles within our face stretches the skin causing a loss of flexibility. As we age, the flexibility in the skin is unable to firm back in place.
