Over time, the natural process of skin aging takes place and wrinkles start to appear. This usually starts at an age younger than most people expect – even as early as their 20’s. It is a process that is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors, such as, sun exposure, smoking, weight loss as well as the overactivity of facial muscles. The presence of these factors greatly influence the rate at which permanent wrinkles and folds in the skin start to form. This occurs because our skin starts to lose its thickness due to the natural reduction in collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin – all of which make up our dermis. Facial wrinkles can occur in several main areas of the face, and the more common ones are shown in the picture below.
These wrinkles can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers or a combination of both. We can also augment certain facial features with dermal fillers. Click below for more information on each of the treatments we offer.
