Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of ageing, however sometimes they make us look and feel less confident. We can help restore your self-esteem.

Lines And Wrinkles Quick Facts

Lines and wrinkles are part of the natural ageing system

Many causes of early lines and wrinkles are avoidable

UV light from sun exposure cause a breakdown of collagen in the skin

Smoking and alcohol are likely to accelerate the on-set of wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles are sadly a natural side-effect of growing older and whilst no-one minds the odd laughter line around the eye when these are joined by creases, folds and deep ridges on the face then they are often unwelcome additions.

The factors that affect when and how the skin ages are sun-damage, environmental factors, genetics, smoking, alcohol and dehydration.

Sun damage has the most dramatic effect on how the skin ages with the face, neck and hands being almost permanently exposed to UV rays all the year round. Unless a good SPF factor is used sun damage will occur. Smoking also drastically affects the way the skin ages and tobacco smoke contains over 4000 chemicals some of which are known to damage collagen and elastin. It also affects the blood vessels which deliver essential oxygen supplies and nutrients to the skin, two essential ingredients which keep the skin looking firm and plump. Excessive alcohol consumption causes dehydration which in turn can leave the skin thinner and drier.

All of these factors can lead to a depletion in the bodies own natural collagen and elastin causing the skin to get drier, thinner and more liable to free radical damage. The result of all of this is the presentation of lines and wrinkles in the forehead, crows’ feet, and neck as well as loss of volume in the cheek and lip areas. As we continue to age and without interception the lines and wrinkles may become deep furrows and folds and lips and cheeks lose volume altogether.

We have many treatments that can help ranging from improvement to tone and skin texture right the way through to lifting, tightening and volumising the entire face.

Testimonial

I have been treated with upmost of respect and privacy in the few years I have attended the clinic. The treatments I have had have made me look the very best I can for my age and have not made me look as if I’m trying to look much younger - which is not a good image when you are a little older. Overall delighted.
