Fine lines & wrinkles appear with age due to underlying muscle contraction, also known as “expression” wrinkles or due to compression, tension, or shear forces during sleep, the so-called “sleep wrinkles”, smile lines, horizontal neck lines and vertical lines of the décolleté.
Prevention of established expression lines & wrinkles are achieved by wrinkle reducing injections, which weaken the muscles responsible for the development thereof.
These include horizontal lines on forehead, glabellar frown lines, crow’s feet, peri-oral vertical “barcode” lines, and more. These safe FDA approved injections are initially administered every 3-4 months. Over time, with regular use the intervals may become longer and the required dosage smaller.
Treatment of established fine lines & wrinkles due to compression, tension, or shear forces during sleep, such as smile lines, horizontal neck lines and vertical lines of the décolleté is best achieved by collagen induction treatments.
These treatments include:
• Micro-needling with DermapenTM with or without platelet rich plasma (your own plasma)
• Fractional laser
• Redermalisation with a hyaluronic acid product which contains succinate to directly impact on the mitochondria of the fibroblasts and cause revitalisation. (Three treatments at 2 week intervals)
• Dermal injections of a cross-linked Hyaluronic acid product to revitalise and hydrate the skin. (one treatment)
Controlled micro-damage is performed to stimulate the body’s own healing by releasing growth factors, which result in collagen & elastin production, thereby reducing the wrinkles.
A series of chemical peels, such as increasing strengths of glycolic acid peels, lacti-firm, as well as Easy TCA® and Retinol peels will improve the fine lines & wrinkles.
