As we age, our bodies slow down the production of essential proteins that enable skin to stretch and contract: elastin and collagen. Connective tissues and muscles deteriorate. Skin no longer looks soft, plump and youthful but appears wrinkled and saggy instead.
No amount of moisturising, dieting or exercising can prevent wrinkles from forming, but there is a wide range of safe and effective non-surgical treatments that can smooth, plump up or tighten up wrinkled skin and improve it noticeably for a healthy, refreshed and more youthful appearance.
