Wrinkles and lines can easily be improved to accentuate your youthfulness whilst retaining a natural appearance. Whilst there are many possible treatments for wrinkles and lines, among the most effective are BOTOX and Dermal Fillers. Botox relaxes the muscles that cause lines and dermal fillers fill out the lines either by providing volume to areas of fat deficit or by directly lifting the lines.
Wrinkles and lines have several causes. Firstly, there’s the natural aging process that begins in our mid-20s. Over time we produce less collagen; and the substance that helps our skin snap back into place (called elastin and hyaluranon), becomes less springy.
There are also environmental factors – things like sun exposure, smoking or repetitive facial movements (e.g frowning). We also lose fat deposits from strategic areas of the face such as the cheekbones which causes a general sagging. Muscle tone weakens as we age and after menopause women lose bone mass from the face.
All of these factors cause the skin to deflate like a balloon which has lost air. Replacing the lost volume with Dermal Fillers is the best way to restore the natural youthfulness of the face in a process called the “liquid facelift” or “volumising”.
