Many people are concerned about the appearance of wrinkles. As the collagen in the skin begins to break down, the skin will show a more wrinkled appearance. Certain lifestyle choices like smoking, drinking, and sun exposure exacerbate the problem. Luckily, it is possible to moderate the effects of these youthful mistakes through proper skin care.
As the skin ages, it relaxes. The jaw and chin soften, losing their previous shape. Cheeks sag and wrinkles set in. The contours of the face become marked with lines and folds. Although these changes are natural, many people begin to feel uncomfortable and lose confidence in their appearance.
No matter your age, it is incredibly important to keep a positive self-image, which is why cosmetic surgeon and founder of Le Centre de Médecine & Chirurgie Esthétique, Dr. Pierre Courchesne, offers numerous innovative, non-surgical solutions for women and men who want to present a more youthful appearance to the world.
Dr. Pierre Courchesne’s office offers a program called the Volumalift for people who are concerned about their wrinkles. This “soft lift” provides facial rejuvenation without the risks associated with surgery. With the help of advanced injectables, the “soft lift” is an excellent alternative to a full surgical facelift.
Another great advantage of the fillers used in a soft lift is that the products injected are chosen for their capacity to build a foundation to which the natural collagen produced by the body can stick to. In the hands of an experienced cosmetic doctor like Dr. Courchesne, the face looks natural, and it keeps its youthful proportions. The Volumalift is popular among people who believe that their appearance helps them feel better about themselves.
The Venus Viva facial apparatus works with the generation of RF and magnetic fields. This handheld device enables providers to reduce signs of aging and build collagen. It tightens pores, invigorates facial skin, tones and firms the skin, reduces stretch marks, and reduces acne scars and wrinkles. This non-invasive method is a perfect choice for patients who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles without resorting to surgical methods.
The Smartxide fractional CO2 system is another non-surgical method for reducing wrinkles and providing a more youthful appearance. This facial creates small microlesions at the skin level. The CO2 energy blasts the damaged and aged skin away, stimulating the growth of new collagen tissue. This device allows the skin to become firmer and less wrinkled, causing beautiful results.
Laser treatments like the Smartxide system are the latest trend in facial wrinkle reduction. These powerful treatments provide results that are similar to surgery without the downtime and the risks.
When injectables and non-invasive devices are not enough, plastic surgery is an option. Many clinics such as Le Centre de Médecine et Chirurgie Esthétique offer what is known as the Mini-Lift. Performed by a plastic surgeon, facial structures that have become loose are tightened up. Often this is combined with an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty, which can reduce vision problems and drastically adds to a youthful appearance. These procedures can all be performed on-site at Le Centre de Médecine et Chirurgie Esthétique since there is an accredited Operating Room that has been active for the last 20 years with all the government accreditations and the latest Accreditation Canada passed with honors because of its organization, solid administrations, and safety.
Correcting Wrinkles for a Youthful Appearance
To prevent wrinkles from occurring in your older years, it is important to use sunscreen from a young age. It is also important to avoid smoking and drinking alcohol in excess. Staying well-hydrated will also keep the skin from sagging.

Regaining a youthful appearance is an attainable goal. By taking the time to invest in yourself, you will be more in touch with your inner self and will have an easier time harmonizing the outside shell.
