Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Fine lines are small, superficial wrinkles that can develop on your face, neck and other areas of your body.
Wrinkles and fine lines on the face are one of the most visible signs of ageing. While fine lines are superficial and closer to the skin’s surface, wrinkles are more deep-set. As you age, many fine lines may turn into wrinkles as skin loses elasticity and firmness.
What are fine lines and wrinkles?
For many, fine lines are the first visible signs of ageing they experience. They generally develop around the eyes, forehead and sides of the mouth. These fine lines and wrinkles can range from small, shallow lines to deeper-set wrinkles. Over time shallow lines can deepen and become more visible if they aren’t actively treated.
What causes fine lines and wrinkles?
Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. This happens naturally over our lifetime and can also be influenced by things like smoking, sun exposure, diet, genetics and facial expressions, such as squinting, smiling and laughing.
Treatment options for Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Anti-wrinkle Injections
- Skin Needling
- Refine Rejuvenation Laser
Anti-wrinkle injections are one option to help you improve fine lines and wrinkles. They can be used to smooth dynamic lines and wrinkles and soften overactive muscles that may make you look tired or grumpy even when your face is relaxed.
Ulthera Treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin and deeper tissues. It is designed to bypass the surface of the skin and deliver precise energy at a specific depth and temperature. As a result, this ultrasound energy initiates the body’s natural responses to an injury, tightening up the deeper tissues and stimulating collagen production. Ulthera is designed to lift and tighten the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow and help improve fine lines and wrinkles.
We use a handheld device with titanium microneedles that are 2mm in length. These microneedles penetrate deep into the dermal tissue creating channels that are responsible for increasing collagen and elastin production. As a result, the dermal tissue thickens, which provides more volume to the skin as well as significantly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Refine Rejuvenation Laser Treatment
This popular treatment combines laser therapy with the added benefits of a mild chemical peel. The laser component stimulates collagen and elastin production, visibly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Following the laser a mild chemical peel is applied further facilitating collagen and elastin production but also improves the skin’s hydration levels and overall barrier function.
How Long To See Results?
Anti-wrinkle injections: The results are immediate.
Ultherapy: There is an immediate tightening but this will relax and it will take 3 – 6 months for the new collagen to start with the best results still being achieved at 12 months.
Skin Needling: Results can be seen after one treatment however a course of three to six treatments will assist in providing optimal results.
Refine Rejuvenation Laser: The skin instantly appears brighter in the complexion just after one treatment.
Are The Results Permanent?
Anti-wrinkle injections: The results can last 3 to 4 months.
Ultherapy: Because the ultherapy stimulates your body to create collagen, the outcomes vary a little between patients. It also is a year before you reach the final result with a very slow and steady improvement throughout that time.
Skin Needling: Collagen production continues for up to 12 months after the procedure.
Refine Rejuvenation Laser: This results in the up-regulation of collagen production, consequently reducing the appearance of fine lines and providing instant life back into the skin, however this popular pre-event “pick-me-up” isn’t permanent.
