The four types of wrinkles

Compiled by Mark Causon

1. Atrophic wrinkles occur when the skin gets thin, because the epidermis looses collagen and elastic fibres.
2. Elastotic wrinkles occur as a consequence of change in skin. They appear because of chronic exposure to UV lights, for example sun or solarium. These wrinkles are stable and have a typical criss-cross pattern.
3. Gravitation or dangling wrinkles are the affect of gravitation. They are also connected to loss of collagen.
4. Mimic or dynamic wrinkles are caused by constant moving and are not connected to age. If you do not smoke, you will probably never have wrinkles around your mouth, unless you have mimic which uses lots of mouth moving. And if you do not pucker your forehead while thinking or worrying, you will probably never have wrinkles. These wrinkles are very much connected to facial expressions and those wrinkles can tell a lot about somebody’s character.
Inspired by dermatological collagen treatments, Alta Care Laboratoires has created Dermastir Collagen Filler that is applied onto wrinkles to diffuse them out. Dermastir Collagen Fills in the depth and length of facial lines and wrinkles. Dermastir Collagen Filler can be applied on all types of wrinkles: forehead wrinkles, wrinkles around the eyes, laugh line wrinkles, brow furrows and vertical lines around the mouth. Dermastir Collagen Fillers are primarily wrinkle reducers that correct moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds such as those around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds).
Dermastir Filler can be applied according to the wrinkle. One ampoule use per week is recommended. In cases when the face is severely wrinkled or in cases when the wrinkle is deeper than normal, one can use 2 ampoules per week.
Dermastir Fillers can be used in combination with Dermastir Collagen Serums. It is important to push the cap down and break the seal of the ampoules before taking off the cap.
Dermastir fillers by Alta Care Laboratoires are available in all pharmacies and at the Excelsior Grand Spa.
