Lines and wrinkles are caused by a variety of age-related factors, including loss of collagen and elastin, dry skin, thinning skin, and oxidative damage. Lines and wrinkles can vary significantly, from fine lines to moderate wrinkles to deep folds. Finer lines are often caused by movement of muscles, particularly in the upper face, while deep folds are generally a product of volume loss, or loss of facial fat. Collagen is a protein that is critical to the structure of the skin, and elastin is a protein that helps the skin return to its natural position after being stretched. Elastin levels begin to decrease at around age 18, and collagen levels begin to decline at around age 25.
The most effective solutions vary based on the types of lines and wrinkles, but are typically multi-stage treatments in which collagen and elastin are stimulated, skin is tightened and resurfaced, and volume is restored. Our expert team treats lines and wrinkles with great outcomes using effective combinations of energy-based devices and injectable products.
Botox & Xeomin
Commonly known as wrinkle relaxers or neuromodulators, Botox and Xeomin are injectable products used to improve the appearance of forehead lines and wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. By temporarily reducing the movement of muscles in the upper face, the associated lines and wrinkles fade. Your aesthetic injector will advise as to which product is ideal for you.
A quick treatment that yields immediate results, cosmetic fillers are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds and restore lost volume. Hyaluronic acid-based filler is carefully injected into the skin to hide wrinkles and smooth out folds. Fillers are commonly used to improve smile lines, marionette lines, under-eye concerns, and other facial features.
