What is it and what is the cause?
Wrinkles are an inevitable sign of ageing. Laughing, concentrating, squinting or frowning; whenever you move your face, your muscles contract. After years of frequent contraction, combined with environmental and lifestyle factors – such as exposure to sunshine, smoking or pollution – lines and wrinkles begin to form. Collagen and elastin starts to break down and fine lines and wrinkles become deeper over time.
The wrinkles that concern most people are those on the upper part of the face caused by muscle movement when making facial expressions and those on the lower face such as nose to mouth and droopy mouth corners caused by volume loss in the mid face and sagging as collagen starts to diminish.
Good news! There is a solution to all of these types of wrinkles! Expression lines can be treated very effectively with Botulinum Toxin (known as Botox) and those on the mid and lower face by replacing lost volume with either fillers, Sculptra collagen stimulating injections, HIFU skin tightening or Thread lifts (Silhouette Soft). Treatment options will depend on the primary cause of the wrinkles, personal choice of treatment type and of course, budget. Our consultations are free to advise you on all the options and advise which might be the most effective for you.
Prices depend on the treatment chosen (please see our treatment menu for individual treatment prices).
