The top layer or stratum corneum is the rough, pigmented layer of the skin; creating most of the depth of the wrinkle.
Exfoliation is best for this using microdermabrasion, Retin-A (our Emerge’ Skin Perfecting System), some lasers and chemical peels.
The second region is the epidermis and dermis which thin with aging. The natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (which hydrate and toughen the skin) are thickened by the use of fillers (Restylane and Juvederm) or Retin-A (Emerge’ Skin Perfecting System).
The next layer or fat also thins or droops with age and maybe filled (Restylane and Juvederm) or redraped (thread, short-scar, traditional, endoscopic face / neck / brow lifts).
Finally, the muscle which creases the skin into wrinkles and folds is weakened and rebalanced with Botox.
Everyone needs one or more layered improvement and in personalized combinations to achieve their optimal result.
