In the spotlight: Wrinkle reduction treatments

Injectables   

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the ageing process. As our skin becomes older, it gets thinner, drier and loses some of its youthful elasticity. Your face may be the first place you spot fine lines and wrinkles – this is because it’s the area most often exposed to the elements, plus your facial expressions cause the repeated movement and contraction of your facial muscles, which, like repeatedly folding a piece of paper, leaves some creases over time.

Other factors influence how your skin changes and ages. Sun damage, your diet, smoking, dehydration, genetics, and even some medications can all leave their mark.

Although wrinkles can certainly add personality and an aspect of wisdom to your face, you may feel as though the face you see in the mirror no longer fits with the way you feel inside. You may want to look refresher, firmer, rejuvenated or have healthier skin.

There are a wide number of wrinkle reduction treatments currently available, all of which have different pros and cons and are right for different people at different times in their life. It used to be that the only way people could tackle lines and wrinkles was with surgical procedures such as a facelift. These days, there are many non-invasive treatments that can make a subtle but powerful difference to your appearance and boost your self-confidence.

 


 

We offer the following wrinkle reduction treatments at our North London clinic:

Wrinkle Injections

Wrinkle reducing injections work by temporarily preventing targeted facial muscles from contracting. This treatment is particularly effective when used in the upper half of the face around the eyes and forehead.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid and can be injected into targeted areas of the face to restore lost volume and boost your skin’s hydration. Dermal fillers are ideal for use around the mouth and cheeks, filling in and smoothing away deep nose to mouth lines or marionette lines. Dermal fillers are typically used for lip enhancement and cheek enhancement, and give the skin a much more defined, smoother and rounded youthful appearance.

Other options

Other wrinkle reduction treatments are available, including cutting-edge clinical skincare systems or skin tightening treatments. The only way to know which treatment or treatments would be right for your individual needs and budget is to seek advice from an expert.
