Many of us at some point will start to develop lines or wrinkles on our face. This is an unfortunate fact of ageing. Fortunately there are many options available to safely remove or improve them.
On the upper face we may form horizontal forehead lines, glabellar or elevens lines between the eyebrows, as well as crows feet around the outside of the eyes. Wrinkles under the lower eyelids and bunny lines at the top of the nose are also common.
On the lower face people can develop marionette lines, which start at the corners of the mouth and go down to the chin, leading to a sad looking face. Nasolabial folds are typically deeper lines which start at the nostrils and run down the face toward the lips.
Whatever the location on your face, the medical term for these wrinkles is ‘rhytides’. Dermatologists have developed a useful scale for classifying these lines and wrinkles; fine, moderate and deep (which may also include folds of skin).
At Dr Haus Dermatology we have non-surgical treatments to improve the appearance of all types of face lines and wrinkles.
Contrary to what people frequently understand, many lines and wrinkles on the forehead can be improved without the need for injections. Of course anti-wrinkle injections such as Botox (which is a Prescription Only Medicine that may only be recommended following a consultation with a Dermatologist), or Dermal Fillers which contain hyaluronic acid. Marionette lines filler are very effective at improving these deeper lines and we have many years of experience in working with them in our clinic.
However many other treatments are also available. For instance Dr Haus and his team are experienced at using laser therapy to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as radiofrequency and medical grade facials, all with very good results.
Dr Haus and his colleagues will develop a treatment plan based on your skin condition as well any preference to include, or avoid a particular form of treatment, to reduce the appearance of your lines and wrinkles.
