Fines lines and wrinkles can be caused by the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin combined with ageing and other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, lifestyle and genetics.

So many ageing products claim to target wrinkles and fine lines. What’s the difference, and why does it matter?
Fine lines may occur when the skin begins to sag. It can become thinner, and may lose volume and fold over itself. If it can’t snap back into place, you can develop fine lines. These pleats can appear anywhere on the face, but they usually show up in areas where the skin moves. Sometimes sun damage can produce fine lines.
Wrinkles are similar to fine lines, but they are deeper. Some people identify wrinkles as creases that occur in areas of facial expression. In the world of cosmetic procedures, these types of wrinkles are referred to as dynamic.
Some examples of fine lines or dynamic wrinkles can include crows’ feet, forehead creases and the feathering that develops around the lips.
A combination of Anti-wrinkle injections with the right skin treatment may result in a more youthful and glowing complexion. Anti wrinkle injections can relax wrinkle-causing muscles in the face and CO2 fractional laser skin treatment or PRP skin treatments can stimulate the synthesis of new collagen which may result in a more youthful appearance.
One of the best ways to deal with the signs of ageing is to prevent them. Wearing sunscreen, shading your face and staying out of the sun during peak hours can reduce your risk of developing creases.
But you may not be able to completely avoid wrinkles or fine lines. If you’re always pulling your eyebrows together when you’re frustrated, you might get a vertical crease between them. People who squint a lot are more likely to get lines around their eyes than people that don’t.
Gravity ends up taking its toll on your facial skin too. As you get older, your skin becomes less elastic. The fibres that support your skin deteriorate. With gravity pulling down on you all the time, your skin begins to respond.
You can prevent and treat creases with anti-wrinkle injections. This cosmetic procedure is minimally invasive and precisely targeted. It relaxes the muscles that move repeatedly to generate furrows.
Depending on the location of the grooves, your skin type and other conditions, you can turn to other cosmetic procedures too.
CO2 fractional Laser treatments can be considered the gold standard treatment for wrinkles with people of light skin tone. They remove the outer layers of skin and can promote collagen production, which can help you avoid developing more wrinkles in the long run.
PRP treatments can stimulate collagen production, making it tighter, firmer and more voluminous. As your skin plumps up, wrinkles may go away.
Thread lifts can resolve a wrinkled appearance if they’re placed strategically. This procedure is akin to a non-surgical facelift and can make you look younger.
Our non-surgical skin care treatments are highly effective in reversing the ageing process and smoothing out frown lines, forehead lines, and expression lines around the eyes.
An anti-wrinkle injection smoothes out wrinkles, giving your face a youthful appearance. This treatment involves injecting a pure protein to relax the facial muscles without changing your natural facial expression. Our anti-wrinkle injections have no adverse side effects, and we highly recommend that you combine this treatment with our laser hair removal, PRP, or CO2 laser treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy involves multiple injections of your body’s platelets into your facial skin. The platelets’ growth factors restore blood flow to your skin and increase collagen production, which contributes to a wrinkle-free, glowing appearance. PRP therapy is ideal for restoring other forms of skin ageing, including lifestyle and sun damage.
Carbon dioxide fractional laser treatment removes skin columns in layers while heating the skin’s moisture to stimulate new cell development. This treatment is suitable for removing wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, freckles, uneven pigmentation, and more. If you have deep acne scars, loose skin, or an irregular skin texture, fractional laser treatment is ideal.
