WHEN TO START WITH WRINKLE TREATMENTS?
Choosing the best time to try AntiAging injections depends on age, indications and goals. Some people start noticing wrinkles in their 20s and others in their 30s. It’s all about the skin type, genetics and lifestyle. Some patients prefer to start with the preventional Wrinkle Treatments as soon as they notice the first fine lines on their forehead, between the eyebrows, nose or around the eyes. Preventional treatments definitely prolong the appearance of deep facial expression wrinkles and maintain the youthful appearance which is the main goal of the patients who decide to undergo Wrinkle Treatments at an earlier age.
Before any non-surgical wrinkle treatment, Lucia Clinic aesthetic doctors examine the patients’ facial anatomy and advise the patients about which treatment would be the best for them. Wrinkle treatments are sensitive procedures and they are performed with absolute precision. Lucia Clinic aesthetic doctors are highly experienced in the field of facial treatments and bring the best and immediate results when it comes to natural-looking skin enhancement.
The doctors can also suggest the patients try the combination of other aesthetic enhancement procedures but of course, provided that it is safe and within the goals, the patients wish to achieve with Wrinkle treatments. Safety and the best results are two essential rules that Lucia Clinic aesthetic doctors always follow.
WHAT ARE WRINKLE TREATMENTS?
There are several non-surgical Wrinkle Treatments that can effectively bring back smoother and more youthful skin.
One of them is
Ultherapy® procedure is a non-invasive treatment for lifting and tightening loose skin on the face, neck and upper chest. It provides natural-looking results for a browlift, a tighter chin and neck. With the use of advanced ultrasound, the problematic areas of the face and neck are reached and treated 100%effectively. Ultherapy® ultrasound treatment regenerates the collagen and gradually lifts the skin of the face, neck and décolletage.
With the help of this advanced technology, patients can look younger without the need for a surgical facelift. Ultherapy® is a procedure that helps in reducing fine lines and wrinkles in just one treatment. What makes Ultherapy® special is that it awakens the body’s natural healing processes that eventually bring a nicer contour to the face. What makes Ultherapy® beloved is that it is a non-surgical skin lifting treatment and it is ideal for people who shy away from incisions and long downtime.
Ultherapy® is the only procedure that is approved by the FDA when it comes to lifting the skin on these hard-reachable areas of the face.
Ultherapy® skin lifting treatments offer a new way of fighting against gravity. There is no downtime, no extreme disturbing of the skin – just natural, healthy rejuvenation.

Another wrinkle treatment is well known and very popular. It is of course:
BOTOX® ANTI-AGING INJECTION TREATMENT
Botox® is one of the most beloved wrinkle treatments by patients at Lucia Clinic. It is safe and used for many years for enhancing the natural beauty of the skin. It reduces and eliminates static wrinkles on the face but it is also used for the prevention of wrinkles. The face areas that can be treated with Botox® for the reduction of wrinkles and lines include the forehead, outer corners of the eyes and nose. It can also be used to reduce the vertical lines on the neck. The Botox® non-surgical treatment can reduce facial expression wrinkles known as frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines and others. It is a fast non-surgical procedure that has proven to be absolutely effective in the reduction of wrinkles and lines and returning the natural and fresh look to the face and neck.
When Botox® is injected into the targeted muscles on the face or neck, it blocks the signals that cause those muscles to contract. These muscles get relaxed, and patients no longer make those facial expressions that initially caused the wrinkles.
The Botox® treatment for wrinkles lasts only a few minutes and it is only mildly uncomfortable. The Lucia Clinic aesthetic doctors inject a small amount of Botox® with tiny needles and do their best to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. There is no downtime after the procedure and patients leave Lucia Clinic ready to continue with their busy day. To notice the full effect of Botox® treatment five to ten days need to pass.
Some of the side effects include redness, stinging and bruising of the treated area, but these inconveniences are only temporary.
The effects last from three to six months and then the Botox® dissolves. So additional touch-ups are recommended because the treated muscles will start to be active again and wrinkles will return. However, the reappeared wrinkles might be less deep than before because the treated muscles have been trained to relax.
But whether to repeat the procedure or not depends solely on patients.

Non-surgical wrinkle treatments can also include the following procedures:
INJECTABLE DERMAL FILLERS
Wrinkles appear as the skin ages and lose the proteins in its layers. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical procedure that can rejuvenate and lift up the skin especially around the mouth, chin and nose. They can smooth the skin and make the wrinkles in the treated areas less visible.
There are different types of wrinkle fillers, but the most commonly known are hyaluronic acid and collagen stimulator fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the skin and it serves to hydrate it and make it look plump. Hyaluronic acid fillers come in the form of a gel and after the treatment, the results last between 6 and 12months.
Collagen stimulator wrinkle treatment fillers dissolve in a day or two after the procedure. The best characteristic of this filler is that it triggers the production of collagen in the skin.
Fillers can be used on different areas of the face to treat deep wrinkles and restore contour and volume.
These target areas include smile lines, folds around the nose and chin.
The benefits of fillers are straightforward and deliver the intended result – returning the lost volume to the skin and making it smooth and plump again.
The Wrinkle Treatment with fillers is a non-surgical procedure and it is only minimally uncomfortable. Even though it involves tiny needles, doctors at Lucia Clinic work together with the patients to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. More importantly, prior to the procedure doctors advise the patients about the best fillers for the goals they wish to achieve.
After the filler treatment, the visible effects are fewer wrinkles and fine lines, younger-looking skin and better contour. The results are immediate.

THERMAGE FOR EYES AND FACE
The effects of aging are usually apparent around the eyes. The skin around the eyes is thin and delicate. It loses collagen and thus its elasticity and it starts to droop and develop wrinkles. Thermage for eyes is a treatment that can brighten and rejuvenate the area around the eyes. It is minimally invasive and it is done with the use of radiofrequency to tighten the skin. It requires no downtime and it’s also known as a non-surgical eyelift.
Thermage treatment for eyes is done by radiofrequency that is delivered into the dermis in order to fill the fine lines and wrinkles. It tones and tightens the eyelids, reduces eyelid hooding, softens the Crow’s feet around the eyes and smooths the fine lines and wrinkles.
The results of Thermage treatments for eyes can be seen two weeks after the procedure and the effects continue to develop overtime – the skin gets tightened because the new collagen is produced.
Thermage treatment can be performed on other features that have lost definition and developed fine lines and wrinkles – lips, neck and jawline.
