Removing Wrinkles at Alberta Plastic Surgery

“Say it ain’t so, mom!”

New research is finding that genetics, specifically from your mother’s side, might be the reason why you have developed wrinkles at an early age. There are other factors that cause wrinkles to develop, primarily aging. As strong as the force of aging is, there is an equal and greater force that can reverse its wrinkly effects: plastic surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adil Ladak in Edmonton has a wealth of experience in cosmetic procedures that can reverse the effects of aging, from facelifts to Botox to tissue fillers.

There are several factors that can cause wrinkles to develop earlier in your life:

  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Sun exposure
  • Lack of sunscreen
  • Aging (skin losing elasticity over time)

Let’s take a closer look at the first factor, genetics, and recent findings. New studies are exploring how decreased energy production in our mitochondria (the powerhouses of cells) can lead to early signs of aging, like wrinkles. With decreased energy production from mitochondria, our cells naturally break down, resulting in physical signs of aging. Ultimately, if science can one day slow down the wear and tear to the mitochondria, we can slow down the effects of aging; however, that won’t be happening anytime soon. What do our beautiful mothers have to do with this? In short, the research believes that the mitochondrial DNA from our mothers decides the speed at which we age. Essentially the study predicts that if you’re mom has wrinkles at an early age, you will too.

Now for the good news! There is a solution at Alberta Plastic Surgery in Edmonton. Procedures like the facelift, clinically known as rhytidectomy, enhance and restore your face to a youthful look. A facelift will reverse the signs of aging that can include creases and lines around your eyelids, facial sagging and the deep lines from your nose to your mouth.

Dr. Ladak also performs non-surgical treatments that are successful solutions for wrinkles. Tissue fillers are an effective procedure that improves the shape of the skin and face, by filling in wrinkles. Tissue fillers last up to 12 months and the procedure can be repeated. Along with tissue fillers, Dr. Ladak also suggests Botox as a solution for reversing common signs of aging. Botox injections, which last approximately 6 months, are a popular and safe procedure that alleviates facial creases and wrinkles.

If you have developed wrinkles at an early age, don’t blame your mother, but you can blame genetics on her side! Book a consultation with Dr. Ladak at his Alberta Plastic Surgery clinic in Edmonton to explore options available with cosmetic surgery, to reverse the effects of aging.
