Wrinkles

Wrinkles can show anywhere on the face or body and are an entirely natural part of the ageing process. They will most often form around the eyes and on the forehead. Wrinkles can also often appear on or around the neck, chin and mouth as we get older.

They are formed by repetitive movement or expression and our skin losing both its memory and ability to bounce back. Lifestyle, in particular UV exposure, also has a major influence on when and where wrinkles form. For best results they should be treated as soon as they are noticed and before they become too deep and pronounced.

Anti-wrinkle injections using Botox are usually recommended for this condition. Botox blocks the receptors that are making the muscles contract and cause the wrinkles. The muscles relax and the wrinkles soften, becoming less prominent and rejuvenating the area of the face. This treatment can also help stop new ones forming.
