Wrinkle treatment


What is it?

As the name suggests, this treatment deals with the reduction or removal of wrinkles. The suite of procedures includes usage of various techniques ranging from filler injections, through botulinum toxin injections, right up to super-sophisticated laser treatments (like Thermage and Fraxel combinations) – all with excellent and proven results.  These cosmetic techniques are also effective in complementing other surgical procedures.

During the preliminary consultations, your surgeon will be able to suggest the best approach and treatments suitable for your particular case, which can then be implemented to yield the best results and rejuvenate your face.

Expression lines

Expression lines mainly appear in the upper face and eye areas. They appear gradually, over time, due to the constant expansion and contraction of the muscles in this area, caused by years of facial expressions.  Treatment of expression lines comprises of injection of botulinum toxin.  

Usually, the most affected areas are:

  •    Worry lines – which are the horizontal wrinkles on the forehead.

  •     Elevens or frown-lines – which are the vertical wrinkles in between the eyebrows.

  •     Crow’s feet, or laugh lines – which are fine wrinkles radiating from the outer corner of the eyes.

The injection of botulinum toxin (VISTABEL) is a technique used for over twenty years now. This technique officially authorized in France for cosmetic and aesthetic use, in February 2003. It acts on the muscles in the area, by relaxing them. Its actions is progressive over a duration of 7 to 17 days, after which, a review inspection will be scheduled to assess its effects. Botulinum toxin injections are very effective, although temporary and last up to an average of 6 months.

Furrows and deep wrinkles

Furrows are mainly found distributed in the lower face area, around the lips. They appear in a slow and steady manner, and are partly caused by the sagging tissues in the area. A typical example of this type of wrinkles is the nasolabial folds, more commonly called the “laugh lines”.

Treatment is essentially designed around filler injections of hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Perlane, Surgiderm, SURGILIFT etc.,). These have the advantage of being absorbable and natural. These injections can also act as  “plumpers”.

Wrinkles caused by the ravages of time

The skin ages due to a combination of factors like time, lifestyle, external aggressions – like exposure to sun, pollution, smoking habits etc., Modern cosmetic treatments like peeling, laser and photo rejuvenation, attempt to stimulate the repair of dermal fibers, and bring about a natural freshness to the skin.
