Signs and Symptoms

Wrinkles are characterised by folds, creases, sagging and ridges in the skin that are commonly seen on the face and hands. Some wrinkles appear as fine lines while others appear as deep creases.

Wrinkles are a natural sign of ageing that can be exacerbated by environmental factors.

Why Do I Have It?

Natural factors

Although we can control our exposure to certain factors that cause fine lines and wrinkles, reduction in collagen is a natural process that none of us can escape. As we age, there is a decrease in collagen production and a subsequent loss of elasticity. Collagen is a structural protein that acts as a main component of connective tissue, giving skin its plumpness. As its levels diminish, the skin loses its fullness, becoming thin and papery. Over time, the skin’s elasticity – its ability to be stretched and bounce back to its original position – also decreases, resulting in sagging skin that often folds and creases. Habitual facial expressions such as squinting and raising your eyebrows also contribute to wrinkles.

Environmental factors

Environmental factors that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles as well as premature ageing include sun exposure (without appropriate protection), smoking, poor diet, alcohol consumption, and even pollution.

Treatment Solutions

Skin Needling

Micro-Needling is a skin treatment that combines needling and Mesotherapy to help smooth skin texture, soften scarring, and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers, are small injections of temporary hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally produced by your body.
They were created to add volume, lift and symmetry to your face.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections work by relaxing specific facial muscles to stop the constant creasing and folding of the skin which causes fine lines and wrinkles. Therefore, the treatment primarily targets dynamic lines from forming.

PDO Threading

Matrix PDO Threads are another method of tightening and thickening skin. They are a type of single PDO filament, are smooth and made from Polydioxanone.

Enzyme Therapy

Enzymes are living substances that regulate health and work with certain minerals in the body to form a natural system of antioxidants that fight corrosive free radicals.
