Lines and wrinkles are creases and folds in our skin that become increasingly prominent as we age. Common problem areas are crow’s feet at the corner of our eyes, forehead lines and smile lines.
Lines and wrinkles are a natural side effect of ageing. As we age, our skin loses its natural ability to renew itself, and produces less collagen and elastin. Creases develop in our skin at the points where our facial muscles are frequently flexed and our skin naturally creases – such as at the corners of our eyes when we smile. It’s a natural process, but we want to look good for our age, and treatments in-clinic can help us reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
There are a number of treatments available for lines and wrinkles. Most common are anti-wrinkle injections, which consist of a natural toxin – Botox – that is injected into the muscles of the face to paralyse them. When we move our faces and contract our muscles after this treatment, our muscles will be relaxed, meaning the lines won’t appear so prominently. Repeated treatments of these injections give the most effective results.
Microneedling can also help to improve lines and wrinkles, as it will boost your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin. This will make your skin more capable of healing and rejuvenating itself, giving to a more youthful appearance. Again, repeated treatments of microneedling will offer the best results.
At Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics, I can also help develop a thorough, personalised medical-grade skincare regime for you that includes retinol, which will help to improve the cell turnover in your skin, keeping your skin looking fresh and rejuvenated.
