Forehead lines and wrinkles are the horizontal lines that you may see running across your forehead. They first start to appear around the age of 20-30 and are just a typical sign of ageing that is common in the majority of people.
Wrinkles Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
Wrinkles are one of the most common signs of aged skin. They appear as deep creases, folds or ridges on the skin’s surface and start to appear as a person gets older. They first appear in areas of the face, where repeated facial expressions cause the skin to naturally fold over, such as frown lines on the forehead or crow’s feet around the eyes. The get deeper and more pronounced as skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity over time.
The ageing process is the key cause of wrinkles. As the skin ages, skin cells divide at a slower rate, and the middle layer of the skin (the dermis) begins to thin. This skin layer is made up of connective proteins called collagen and elastin, which are essential components that keep the skin firm, taut and hydrated. These proteins gradually reproduce at a slower rate as we age, so the skin begins to lose its elasticity and firmness. This allows natural facial expression wrinkles to deepen, and new wrinkles to form. Our skin also loses fat stores which keep the skin full and voluminous. Instead of being evenly distributed, fat can start to clump up in places, which can reduce the volume in certain areas and make existing wrinkles look worse.
There is a variety of non-surgical methods that we can adopt to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we specialise in non-invasive wrinkle treatments that require no downtime or surgery. During your consultation, we will analyse your face and create a long-term plan to smooth fine lines and address wrinkles in order to achieve subtle facial rejuvenation. For example, dermal fillers can be administered in small drip-fed amounts because little differences create a huge impact. We only use FDA-approved gold standard dermal fillers, clinically researched for their safety and efficacy.
The best results are often achieved by customising a combination of different treatments such as injectables, resurfacing lasers and skin lifting treatments. Our qualified medical practitioners will advise you on a bespoke treatment plan. To book a consultation, please get in touch with our clinics in London and Buckinghamshire.
