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.

I had micro needling done with dermal clinician Megan. She is very personable, professional and passionate about her work. She gave me a thorough briefing of the procedure and answered all of my questions during the consult. The treatment went very smoothly and I knew I was in safe hands. Looking forward to the results!

Mal was simply the most amazing and best consultation I've ever had here! She takes great care, eases you in the process as it is a bit scary, and very professional. The treatment has worked really well for me so far. I have an Indian dusky skin tone and had many queries and doubts going in. However, all my doubts were clearly answered and I would highly recommend the clinic to anyone looking for laser treatments! The place is very clean, organised, has great ambience and offers great services!

VicLaser in Collins St. is a relaxing and clean facility. Ms. Mal looks after me, very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable of what she does since the day I started my sessions, and will always make sure you feel comfortable before, during and after the service. Had a very nice experience and still going. Kudos to this branch especially to Ms. Mal 👏🏻☺️
