Wrinkles

Your skin is your largest organ and because it is vulnerable to the effects of age as well as environmental factors, lines and wrinkles are inevitable.

Unfortunately, once the tell-tale signs of ageing such as pigmentation, sun spots and wrinkles occur prematurely, it can make you look and feel older than you really are. Even though it’s impossible to freeze time, it is still possible to slow the clock down.

Understanding the Layers of the Skin

Your skin is composed of three different layers, each of which consists of different elements and performs different functions.

  1. Epidermis. This is the outermost layer of your skin, providing your body with protection from germs and the elements. Dead skin cells are shed from the epidermis and this is also where melanin is found.
  2. Dermis. This layer can be found directly underneath the epidermis and consists of elastin, nerves, blood vessels, fat and collagen fibres. The collagen that is found in the dermis helps keep the body’s connective tissue strong and healthy. While collagen improves the strength of your skin, elastin enables it to stretch.
  3. Subcutaneous Tissue. This layer is what keeps you warm and ensures your internal organs are held in place.

All three layers are responsible for producing visible signs of ageing, which is why our anti-ageing treatments work to target all three.

Understanding the Types of Ageing

Before delving into the most effective ways to treat lines and wrinkles, it also helps to understand the different types of ageing.

Intrinsic Ageing
Also known as chronological ageing, intrinsic ageing gradually occurs throughout your lifetime, regardless of any environmental factors. Intrinsic ageing refers to the natural ageing process, whereby your skin’s collagen and elastin levels slowly decrease, the body produces less sebum and moisture levels decline, all of which lead to wrinkles and sagging skin.

Extrinsic Ageing
This type of ageing is directly linked to environmental influences, which can often cause the most dramatic signs of ageing. A few examples of influences that can lead to extrinsic ageing include smoking, free radicals, sun exposure and repeated facial expressions. Even certain sleeping positions will gradually cause additional lines and wrinkles.

Wrinkle Treatment Options

While a good home skincare regime is essential for fighting premature signs of ageing, professional cosmetic treatments are able to address your concerns at a deeper level. Here are some of the most effective ways to combat lines and wrinkles.

– Anti-Wrinkle Injections
To prevent repeated facial expressions from leaving lasting lines and deeper grooves, anti-wrinkle injections can be used to relax the muscles that are responsible for creating these lines. During your treatment, a series of small injections are used to administer TGA-approved ingredients into the areas you’re concerned about. The forehead and the area between the eyebrows are two of the most common areas treated with anti-wrinkle injections.

– Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers may seem similar to anti-wrinkle injections but the effects are quite different. A loss of volume is another factor that leads to the appearance of lines and wrinkles, something dermal fillers aims to combat. Dermal fillers contain a naturally-occurring substance called hyaluronic acid, which helps plump up the areas that need it the most. The eye area, jawline, lips and cheeks are all areas that can be treated with dermal fillers.

– Collagen Stimulators
Collagen stimulators are quite similar to dermal fillers but have one key difference. Collagen stimulators are designed to offer long-term results by encouraging the skin to naturally produce more collagen after every treatment. Collagen stimulators are also ideal for treating areas such as the jaw, cheeks, temples and general facial wrinkles.

– PRP
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma therapy, is a treatment that uses the growth factors in your blood to repair damaged tissues, helping patients to achieve a smoother, more even skin tone and wrinkle-free skin. Only a small sample of your blood is required to complete the treatment. Once the blood has been processed in a centrifuge, the growth factors will be injected into the affected area to encourage healthy cellular activity and reverse the signs of ageing.
