Reducing wrinkles, how do you do it?

Do you dream of even firm skin? And would you like less wrinkles and sagging? Of course, there are all kinds of remedies that promise you this. Unfortunately, you notice little to nothing of it in practice. In this article, I introduce you to a skin therapy treatment, without fillers. This treatment strengthens your skin naturally, reducing wrinkles.

Why do many anti-wrinkle creams not work or only work temporarily?

Marketing-wise, of course, anti-wrinkle cream sounds very appealing. This is also why the term is frequently used commercially. To really make a difference, a more intensive approach is needed. This combined with an appropriate skincare routine that does work for you. What your skin needs cannot be put into a standard skin type skincare line. The absolute basics are to start by using a mineral SPF 50 daily over your day cream. All other advice is general advice. Therefore, it is better to seek the advice of a skin therapist on the basis of a skin scan, for example.


Why do the products you buy at the drugstore or pharmacy not work very well, if at all?

This depends not only on the chosen actives and percentages, but also on your skin condition. Any actives cannot get deep enough into the skin due to cornified skin to actually make a difference. Also essential in this is the packaging and formula chosen. In a jar of cream, actives dissipate and bacteria accumulate. So we prefer to opt for an airtight pump or tube. The secret to the creams where you do briefly see a difference are tiny reflections like mirrors that cause light to fall differently on the skin.

To actually improve and rejuvenate your skin, intensive skin treatments are needed that boost your fibroblasts (cells in the connective tissue) to produce more elastin and collagen fibers. These are important proteins in your skin that provide firmness and elasticity so that wrinkles and fine lines soften/reduce.

How can we prevent wrinkles?

The production of elastin and collagen slowly decreases from our 25th year of life onward during we age. That natural process cannot be stopped (yet). What we do know is what are the causative agents that accelerate the breakdown! Herein lies the key to preventing premature skin aging and wrinkles.


The main causes of premature skin aging are:

  • UV/Daylight: Sunlight is daylight and responsible for 80% of skin aging, such as spots, patches and lines. Prevention is better than cure. As far as we are concerned, the answer is very simple: apply a mineral SPF 50 daily!
  • Stress: Too much stress can be seen not only on the inside, but also definitely on the skin. The stress hormone cortisol makes your skin more susceptible to skin conditions. It also damages your collagen and elastin in the skin, literally creating more wrinkles in a short period of time. Time for more relaxation!
  • Smoking: This may be an open door, but many people do not realize that smoking also damages your skin cells. Sagging skin and wrinkles are the result. Are you ready to choose beautiful radiant skin? Then try to quit smoking.
  • Sugar: In food, sugar is proven to be the biggest culprit in the development of wrinkles and sagging. Your collagen proteins are compromised and negatively affected, causing wrinkles sooner. Therefore, cellulite also develops faster with frequent sugars in your diet. Healthy eating without refined sugars helps prevent wrinkles and sagging skin.

Skin products that do work

In addition to mineral SPF 50, it is a must to go with high active ingredients and antioxidants. Everything is about balance. So get advice for a proven effective skincare routine tailored to your needs. To give an example, a proven active ingredient that does work anti-aging is vitamin A acid also called retinol. The correct percentages with the purest form, you can only purchase through your dermatologist or skin therapist due to a strict build-up schedule. Don’t just buy (expensive) skin products, get advice so you don’t spend unnecessary money on skin products that don’t work for you.


What do we do to reduce under-eye wrinkles, crow’s feet and frown lines?

Wrinkles under the eyes, crow’s feet, frown lines, wrinkles on your upper lip and nasolabial folds: we don’t like them. We feel ourselves getting older. Of course, getting older has its advantages, but looking fresh and young is really nice for our self-image. In a skin therapy treatment, we work on your most beautiful skin with lasers, medical peels, microneedling and a combination of these techniques. The techniques cause your skin to renew, firm and even out after the treatment itself. This ensures the most beautiful and effective result. I list all the results for you.


Results of skin-enhancing treatments:

  • The skin becomes firmer, making wrinkles less noticeable.
  • Even skin without pigmentation spots, making you appear younger. Not only do wrinkles make you look older, so do pigment spots.
  • Hydrated skin, leaving skin looking fresher and glowing.
  • Healthy skin with a beautiful glow.
  • Improved skin texture, making the skin feel smoother.
  • The skin tone becomes fresher, making the skin appear less drab.
  • Redness in the skin decreases, leaving the skin looking and feeling calmer.
  • Even and radiant skin gives great self-confidence.
  • The results are subtle and give a natural result.
  • Preventively prevent accelerated skin aging such as spots, patches and sagging.

Reduce wrinkles naturally, the benefits:

  • The biggest advantage is that we put the skin itself to work, this makes the results very natural. This is not always the case with fillers.
  • The treatment plan includes not only treatments, but also home advice and products. With this, you can already achieve many results yourself. The products penetrate deeper into your skin than many other anti-wrinkle creams, so you actually see a skin improvement.
  • You are not just working on a wrinkle, but on the entire skin. As a result, the rejuvenating result is better in the longer term.
  • Skin therapy can be perfectly combined with filler treatments, for example. The results reinforce each other, which is why it is better to combine these techniques, rather than employ them separately.
  • Treatments at The Laser Clinic are intensive and results-oriented. Yet comfort has also been considered. How nice!


Treating wrinkles: how does it work?

To reduce wrinkles, we have several treatments. A favorite treatment to firm the skin structure and reduce wrinkles are so-called fractional treatments with laser or medical microneedling. This is called fractional treatment because a fraction of the skin is treated. This has great advantages because the skin heals quickly and therefore the risk of complications is also very small. Do have the great benefits for skin rejuvenation but not the disadvantages of the approach of the past (non fractional). This involved complete treatment of the entire skin with a recovery time of at least 2 weeks. That is a thing of the past with our treatments. We use quality medical equipment to perform these treatments safely. For fractional treatments, we use the fractional laser: LaseMD (baby facelaser) and for medical microneedling, the award winner Skinpen. With medical deeper peels, we can also combat fine lines and sagging.


LaseMD thulium laser

The baby facelaser makes extremely precise and controlled tiny holes in the skin by evaporating water from the skin. This causes a slight superficial shrinkage of the upper layer of skin. As a result, you will immediately notice a slight tightening on fine lines. After the LaseMD laser, we can apply sterile skin sera with active ingredients. The process of creating new collagen continues for 3-4 months. The results across the entire skin condition are amazing.


The experiences of the Skinpen microneedling for wrinkles are promising.

During this treatment, sterile needles are used to create controlled tiny holes so that wound healing will begin to create new and firmer collagen and elastin tissue. This all-rounder will make your skin smoother, softer, smoother and improve its color.


Using medical peels for wrinkles

With medical peels, we can start to improve skin condition in different skin layers. Deep TCA peels allow us to completely renew the skin and stimulate the process of producing new collagen and elastin in the fibroblast. As an added benefit, pigmentation spots fade away, making the skin look much more even in color as well.

Unsure what the best treatment is for you? It makes sense, because the treatment is composed entirely on your specific skin and we use a combination of different techniques. That’s why we always start with a free, no-obligation skin scan. You will gain insight into your specific situation and which treatment plan will give you the best results.
