Facial Lines & Wrinkles

 

Causes

Wrinkles are the lines and creases that form in your skin. Most wrinkles tend to appear in the parts of the body which receive the most sun exposure, especially the face and neck, the back of the hands, and the arms.

Genetics mainly determine skin structure and texture but sun damage, smoking, dehydration, some medications and genetic factors affect when and where people will develop wrinkles.

Our Recommended Treatments

BTA for Wrinkle Relaxer

  • Targets: Unwanted or unsightly wrinkles
  • Treatment: BTA stands for Botulinum Toxin A, a protein which relaxes muscles. The treatment is a simple procedure which targets wrinkle production by injecting BTA into the areas concerned, thus relaxing your muscles and blocking the formation of wrinkles. See the difference in your skin within 2-3 days.

  • Frequency: Every 4-6 months (depending on the patient)

PRP Therapy

  • Targets: Ageing skin, dull skin, sagging skin, acne scars, pigmentation, wrinkles
  • Treatment: PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and placed into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities). The separated Platelet Rich Plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the face or neck using a syringe or microneedling. If you would like immediate results, we recommend combining it with a filler.
