Wrinkles are part of the ageing process as, over time, the structural makeup of your skin alters. Skin slows down its ability to produce good collagen and elasticity from the late twenties. As the body ages, the appearance and characteristics of our skin change.
Age, hormones, sun exposure and smoking, all have a part to play, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin may feel slighter rougher and less elastic. The amount of Hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance produced by your skin, decreases with age, causing us to retain less water. The oil-producing (sebaceous) glands become less active and our skin becomes drier. The face also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth. As the ageing process progresses, we also find that everything ‘heads south’ and folds and lines appear that can be quite prominent.
As we get older, we start to see two kinds of wrinkles appear:
Treating both of these main components of facial ageing leads to natural, balanced and refined outcomes.
Can you stop or slow down the process?
Of course, you can never stop the natural ageing process, but a healthy diet and lifestyle will help slow this down and may minimise aging effects. Regular exercise, keeping hydrated, along with a healthy diet will all help.

Why do dentists offer this treatment?
Dentists are highly knowledgeable about the anatomy of the face and understand how to treat it safely. They’re used to looking at people’s faces to observe symmetry and balance to create aesthetically pleasing smiles. Dentists also have skills honed with years of administering injections in difficult and restrictive areas, which also enables them to use traditional local anaesthesia if necessary.
