Lines & Wrinkles

As we age, and the skin does too, collagen and elastin—building blocks of supple skin—decrease, which causes the dermis to become thinner.

Reduced skin moisture exacerbates the problem, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles forming in the forehead, cheeks, and around the eyes and mouth. Fortunately, treatments for lines and wrinkles are available.

Crows Feet
These are fine lines and wrinkles that branch out from the outer corner of the eye towards the temple. Skin around the eyes is thin and is where collagen and elastin will be first reduced. Additionally, less sebaceous glands in this area also means wrinkles are more visible and pronounced.

Frown Lines
Vertical lines between the eyebrows become apparent when there is pulling or contraction of the three muscle groups in this area.

Deeper Lines and Folds
As we grow older, the skin produces less collagen and elastin. As a result, fine lines, wrinkles and folds appear due to the thinning of the epidermis and dermis combined with a decrease of moisture in the skin.

The main causes are ageing, sun damage, and exposure to environmental toxins. Consider these treatments to help you to look as young as you feel.

Tear Trough FIller
As you age, there is loss of bone and this is most obvious below the eyes near the nose (tear trough area). Dermal Fillers are deposited directly into the area between the muscle and the bone to replace the loss of volume.
