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.

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be strategically injected into wrinkled skin to fill in lines with volume and hydration. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar-based compound that helps our skin to retain moisture, firmness and strength. By injecting this substance into wrinkle creases and folds, we can instantly restore hydration and lift to achieve flawlessly smooth results that can last up to 6 months or more.
Anti-wrinkle botulinum toxin injections are one of our most popular wrinkle reduction treatments. They instantly relax facial muscles and smooth deep creases with a long-lasting effect. Botox can treat forehead lines, crows feet, frown lines, bunny lines, gummy smile, smile lines, lip lines, neck wrinkles and more. They offer an ideal long-term approach to stimulate the renewal of healthy skin cells while boosting natural collagen stores deep within the skin.

Profhilo is a deeply nourishing hyaluronic acid treatment that does not volumise the skin. Instead, it works to naturally boost and stimulate collagen stores over time, to give our skin restored strength and elasticity in a way that looks totally natural and undetectable.
Ultherapy is an ideal wrinkle treatment that works over time to produce longer-lasting results. It utilises an advanced ultrasound technology to revive collagen-renewal in deep collagen-rich layers of the skin. Over time, collagen proteins renew and skin is tightened and firmed up. Skin looks firmer and wrinkles appear reduced for over a year after the first treatment session.
Radiofrequency wrinkle treatments like Thermage CPT and INTRAcel also work over time to boost skin strength and firmness. Laser treatments like the SmartXide DOT™CO2 laser system also offer patients the chance to address skin pigmentation or sun-damage issues while also addressing wrinkles at the same time. Forever Young BBL is a photorejuvenation skin treatment and the next generation of IPL therapy. BBL uses intense pulsed light to achieve a younger-looking skin and address fine lines, wrinkles and other related skin conditions.
