Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Achieve the skin you’ve always wanted

Most treatments aimed at improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles involve either cosmetic surgery or consistent use of moisturisers and lotions. Advancements in technology are now seeing lasers deliver long-lasting, scientifically proven treatments to restore your skin’s natural beauty.

What causes lines and wrinkles?

Young skin doesn’t have wrinkles because the skin is moist and elastic, with healthy collagen and elastin fibres. As people age, the collagen and elastin deteriorates and the skin cells thin out – making it easier for the skin to become dry. All of these changes cause the skin to sag and wrinkle over time.

Overexposure to the sun’s UV rays is a major factor that causes damage to the skin cells, leading to premature ageing. Poor diet, smoking and poor exercise also play a role in the attractiveness and health of the skin.

Treatment

Compared to traditional methods that reduce wrinkles like dermabrasion and chemical peels, lasers allow your skin care professional to have very precise control over the treatment. With lasers, it is possible to control how deep the laser energy penetrates the skin to trigger changes in the different skin layers.

In most cases, no anaesthetic is required for laser skin resurfacing treatments. Thanks to the special laser wavelength, skin healing and rejuvenation times are shorter than conventional methods. Patients that have had laser skin resurfacing generally describe the feeling as similar to having a sunburn for a few days after the treatment.

As the new skin regenerates, it is important to protect the sensitive new skin with special moisturisers and avoid excessive sun exposure to ensure the best results.
