Lines And Wrinkles
As we age, lines and wrinkles can start to appear anywhere on the face and body.
Ageing and its effects can vary from person to person, and is often dependent on genetics. However, some lifestyle choices such as smoking, alcohol consumption and a poor diet can all contribute to speeding up this natural process, as well as over exposure to the sun and muscle movements in the face.
Collagen and Elastin are two products that are found in the skin, and are the elements that help to keep the skin’s structure strong, soft and supple. The natural effects of ageing disrupt the effective production of collagen and elastin, and this results in the skin losing volume and elasticity, as well as essential moisturising properties.
Often becoming deeper and more inset over time, lines and wrinkles can affect all areas of the upper, lower and mid-face, presenting themselves as: Crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, lip lines and nasolabial and marionette folds.
The skin on the hands and neck (decolletage) is naturally thinner, and as ageing can bring about further thinning of the skin and a change in structure, they too can develop wrinkles.
At Ambra Aesthetic Skin Clinic, injectable treatments such as Dermal Fillers and Wrinkle Relaxing injections containing Botulinum Toxin can be used to soften the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal Fillers add volume to the skin, whereas Botulinum Toxin (BOTOX) eases muscle contractions.
Resurfacing and hydration of the skin to restore the skin’s healthy properties, can be achieved through treatments such as Profhilo (confirm others).Book a Consultation
