Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Choice of treatment for fine lines depends largely on where they are.
Our skin varies in texture and thickness from one area to another. The skin around the eyes for example, is thinner and more fragile than on the rest of the face. This can make it more challenging to treat the area without unwanted side effects. The more gentle treatments are often more appropriate and all that is needed. Omnilux, dermal needling (Skinpen), eye creams, products containing growth factors, laser Genesis or the use of botulinum toxin and fillers all have their place.
With wrinkles around the mouth, the lines are generally more challenging as they are often deeper, have more underlying collagen loss and are in an area of constant movement i.e. talking, eating, drinking etc. Fillers are generally the first choice of treatment, but starting with one of the rejuvenation options to improve the skin itself, can improve the initial result with fillers, as well as significantly increasing the longevity of the product. Treatments like Omnilux, products with growth factors, Vitamin A peels, and laser Genesis come into this category.
For all other areas, any of the skin rejuvenation options mentioned above, are useful for reducing lines. For maximum correction, fillers are generally the best option. Product can be injected into the lines themselves, using a soft, fine filler, or a deep volumising product under the skin, which lifts an area and reduces fine lines that way.
