Ageing Skin & Wrinkles
A wrinkle, also known as a rhytide, is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of ageing processes such as glycation, habitual sleeping positions, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water. Age wrinkling in the skin is promoted by habitual facial expressions, ageing, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors
What causes ageing skin and wrinkles?
Ageing skin and wrinkles are a natural, if unfortunate, by-product of ageing, and you can’t escape from them forever. As we get older, our skin becomes drier, thinnerand less elastic due to collagen reduction. This results in our skin being less able to protect itself from damage such as UVA and UVB rays from the sun. This leads to wrinkles, creases and lines on the skin. Sun damage can weaken and break down collagen and elastin fibres. Additionally, over time collagen production is slowly limited due to the ageing process.
How can I prevent ageing skin?
- Start using dermal fillers early and as a prevention.

What treatments are available?
Wrinkles are an equally common condition which can be treated, and these include forehead wrinkles and wrinkles around the eyes, more commonly referred to as “crow’s feet”. Other commonly treated skin conditions are weak and sunken cheeks, acne scars and regular scars, and varicose veins in aged skin. Generally, the lines, wrinkles and folds able to be treated by the application of dermal fillers are lip lines, tear troughs (tired, baggy eyes), marionette lines (mouth to chin), frown lines, crow’s feet (around the eye), and nasolabial lines (nose to mouth).
