Wrinkles can be recognised as crinkles, folds and ridges within the skin. Permanent wrinkles usually appear as a natural result of the ageing process.
The outer layer of the skin, the Epidermis, is a tough barrier that protects the body from any external elements that may cause your body harm. On average, your body regenerates to produce a new epidermis every 60 days. The cells that are on the surface of the skin shed to produce new ones from below the skins surface. As we age, the cells renewal process.
The dermis is located below the epidermis and plays an instrumental role in the ageing process. The layer is fed by blood vessels and contains collagen and fibres that keep the skin free from wrinkles and plump. As we age, the amount of collagen in our skin decreases and fat is lost from the tissue underneath the skin. As a result, the signs of ageing begin to appear.
To avoid the ageing process, it is advised to drink plenty of water in order to ensure that the skin is hydrated, always wear sunscreen and adopt a quality skincare routine.
|The year 2017 marked the 50th anniversary of when Prof Bosko Milojevic opened one of the first in Europe and the first private plastic surgery clinic in Zagreb, which was the first in that part of Europe. He was the pioneer of treating wrinkles and sagging skin, and the Milo clinic and Dr Milojevic are proudly continuing the long tradition set by his father, treating wrinkles with a combination of many modern cutting edge non invasive techniques such as botox and dermal fillers.|
