Why Wrinkles Form

Whether we like it or not, wrinkles are a part of the natural aging process. As people get older, the skin naturally becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic. Your skin also loses the ability to protect itself from damage. All of these factors lead to wrinkles, creases and lines on the skin. Smoking and other environmental factors can accelerate the development of wrinkles. Exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet rays increase the chance of developing wrinkles early on. UV light is your skin’s worst enemy. It breaks down collagen and elastin fiber in the skin over time. The fibers are an essential part of the skin’s connective tissue. As they continue to break down, the skin will become weaker and less flexible. The skin will begin to droop, and wrinkles will appear.

Growth Factor Serum

Growth factor serums are one of the best skin care products for healthy skin! The serum communicates with cells to trigger the production of more collagen and elastin, resulting in smooth, healthy skin. The formula gives your skin the building blocks it needs to rejuvenate itself! Growth factors can be found all across your body. They manage essential tasks like replicating cells, reducing inflammation, and triggering collagen production. As you apply growth factors, you’re giving your body more of what it already makes by itself, so it’s a natural, safe, and effective anti-aging ingredient.


Botox is a proven and successful therapeutic protein used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and signs of aging in the skin. The toxin can be injected into the skin in extremely small concentrations. Botox, also known as Botulinum toxin, work by preventing signals from the nerve cells from reaching muscles, ultimately paralyzing them. For the muscles to contract correctly, a nerve releases a chemical messenger where the nerve meets the muscle cells. Botox prevents the release of the chemical that cause the muscles to contract.
