Fine Lines and Wrinkles

As you grow older, you may find your once youthful skin starting to dry and dull with fine lines and wrinkles. These alterations are a natural part of the aging process as your skin loses elasticity and moisture, and tends to thin and heal slower. The most common areas affected are on the forehead, corners of the mouth, and around the eyes. Sun damage and artificial tanning may be the biggest contributors to premature aging as they allow collagen and elastin fibres to break down, resulting in weakened skin that can cause fine lines and wrinkles. There are also several different factors beyond our control as to why we get wrinkles. Even the most thorough skincare regimen won’t completely eliminate your fine lines.

The muscles in our upper face are used constantly whenever we make facial expressions such as smiling, frowning or even looking surprised. Over time, this repeated contraction of muscles can cause the formation of facial lines and wrinkles, which can be obvious even when you are not making any facial expressions.

At CBD Skin Cancer Clinic we offer the use of anti-wrinkle injections to reduce these lines. Although results are often quite dramatic, our aim is for a very natural appearance. This creates a fresher more rejuvenated you, allowing you to look your best at every opportunity. Dr Christoph Thelen and our Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner Bianca Baluyot  have had extensive training in the area of anti-wrinkle injections and will help you to achieve your rejuvenation goals, whatever age you are.
