Wrinkle treatments in Baden-Baden
Wrinkle treatments in Baden-Baden
As early as our twenties, our bodies start producing less collagen and elastic fibers, and our skin begins losing its natural moisture, causing it to lose firmness and elasticity. At first, this process is not visible to the naked eye. As a person ages, the skin in different areas of his or her face will gradually slacken and lose volume over time, creating wrinkles; how pronounced they are varies from person to person.
Wrinkle treatments in Baden-Baden help patients minimize the unattractive effects of „the ravages of time“ and regain more youthful, radiant looks. We have several methods of wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden that we can mix and match in order to meet each person’s individual needs. Our minimally invasive options are “surgery-free wrinkle-free”. This section will describe each treatment, what it can do, and how exactly it works.
Different types of wrinkles
Patients seeking wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden have a variety of solutions available to them. Which solution is best suited to their needs depends primarily on which wrinkles bother them most, and what type of wrinkles they are. Generally speaking, wrinkle treatment professionals differentiate between two types of wrinkles.
- Orthostatic wrinkles
Orthostatic wrinkles are caused by the effects of gravity, and are not related to facial expressions. One common example of this type of wrinkle is the nasolabial fold that develops between the nostrils and the corners of the mouth.
- Expression lines
Expression lines are the result of repeated movements of the facial muscles, and become visible when a certain muscle contracts. Well-known examples include laugh lines on either side of the mouth and worry lines on the forehead.
Small, superficial creases can also develop as the result of too much sun exposure or heavy smoking. They usually appear on the mouth, cheeks, chin, or forehead.
Reasons for seeking treatment in Baden-Baden
Wrinkles are a natural part of life. Some of them give our faces character, and we may even wear them with pride. Others, however, make our faces look tired and slack, causing us to look older than we are, or older than we see ourselves. Wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden can help in cases like these, reducing the discrepancy between how we look on the outside and how we feel on the inside.
The goal of wrinkle treatment is to give the face, neck, and hands a healthy, natural, harmonious appearance. When it comes to facial wrinkle treatments in particular, our specialists are extremely careful to make sure that the results are not unnatural or “mask-like”—our wrinkle treatment methods leave patients feeling as happy and youthful as they feel.
At what age does it make sense to start wrinkle treatments?
There’s no “ideal” age to seek out wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden. Everyone is different in terms of when they begin developing wrinkles and to what extent they appear, and not every wrinkle is considered bothersome or unattractive. Most of our patients seek out wrinkle treatment between the ages of 40 and 50. In a few cases, though, early appearance of wrinkles can cause younger patients a great deal of suffering, and the right wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden can help alleviate that.
Minimally invasive wrinkle treatment on the rise
Non-invasive methods of wrinkle treatment have been increasing in popularity for several years now, because they offer quick, natural-looking results without surgery. Other advantages of minimally invasive wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden include shorter treatment and recovery times, no need for anesthesia, comparatively low costs, and the fact that the procedures are associated with minimal risks and complications. As such, minimally invasive wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden represents a reliable, low-risk alternative to cosmetic surgical options such as facelifts.
Options for wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden
Here at KASG Ästhetik, we use several different minimally invasive methods to help give our patients the healthy, smooth, youthful-looking skin they want. Which method we use depends on the individual patient and the results he or she is looking for.
- Wrinkle treatment with Botox®
We recommend Botox® in Baden-Baden to patients troubled by expression lines. These lines become visible when patients move their facial muscles in certain ways (e.g., laughing, raising their eyebrows). Botulinum toxin, the active ingredient in Botox®, disrupts nerve impulses to the muscle that forms the expression line when it moves. As a result, the muscle can no longer contract, so the patient’s features relax and smooth out.
- Hyaluronic dermal fillers
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in human connective tissue, and has the ability to bind large amounts of fluid. When doing wrinkle treatment with dermal fillers in Baden-Baden, we use the hyaluronic acid to plump up the wrinkles from the inside out, leaving the patient’s skin smooth. Fillers are particularly popular solutions to gravity-related (orthostatic) wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid can also help correct volume loss and effectively lift drooping areas of the face.
- Radiesse® dermal filler treatment
Like hyaluronic acid injections, we use Radiesse® in Baden-Baden as a dermal filler, to lift and smooth deep facial wrinkles. Radiesse® is also an effective and natural-looking way of contouring your face by boosting volume in your cheeks or chin.
- Wrinkle treatment with Restylane Skinboosters™
Treatment with Restylane Skinboosters™ in Baden-Baden is an innovative approach to wrinkle reduction. This formula has been specially developed to promote deep hydration of the skin. The procedure involves injecting deposits of a soft hyaluronic gel directly into the skin. Compared to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Restylane Skinboosters™ can cover a greater treatment area, and its hydration effects last longer.
Which method is right for me?
To find out which method of wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden will give you ideal results, we start with an extensive personal consultation here at KASG Ästhetik. You will sit down with our plastic and cosmetic surgery specialist to discuss a variety of questions, including your motivations, the results you are looking for, and any questions you may have. After conducting a precise analysis of your face, our specialist will work with you to draw up a customized treatment plan, which may involve only one wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden or a combination of several different methods.
When is wrinkle treatment contraindicated?
Minimally invasive wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden is much less stressful on the body than surgery. Even so, it is essential that we discuss your medical history thoroughly before the procedure, in order to minimize risks or potential complications. If our plastic and cosmetic surgery specialist identifies any contraindications to wrinkle treatment, we will not perform the procedure, because the patient’s health and safety are top priorities for us.
Factors that make wrinkle treatment in Baden-Baden inadvisable include:
- Illness-related muscle activity disorders
- Existing skin infections in the area being treated
- Allergies (e.g., to the ingredients or the anesthetic cream)
As part of your personal consultation with our experts, we will also discuss any possible interactions with other medications you are currently taking.
