Wrinkles - Why we get them and 21st Century Techniques we have available to treat them

Whether we like it or not, part of the process of facial ageing is the appearance of wrinkles and folds. You know what I’m talking about? Some of the most common areas where they occur are:
  • Crows feet around the eyes
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Forehead lines
  • Lines or creases around the lips and mouth or chin
  • Neck creases
These wrinkles and folds occur for a number of reasons, including:
  • Loss of skin elasticity (loose skin), which forms furrows and wrinkles
  • Sun-damage or ageing of the skin which forms lines
  • Volume loss in the face which forms hollows and folds
  • Over activity of the muscles of facial movement which forms expression wrinkles
 Whilst some lines on your face are part of expression and to give you character, in many people the ageing process means that the lines and furrows become excessive, and can make people look stressed or many years beyond their age. Until recently, the only options for treating these lines involved surgery or invasive laser with significant downtime. Not anymore. 21st century advances in facial aesthetic technologies and treatments means there is now a lot we can do to reduce or sometimes completely eliminate signs of ageing from areas of the face - quickly, without surgery and without significant downtime. It really is amazing what can now be achieved. At the Liberty Belle Skin Centre we love giving our patients access to our comprehensive range of the modern, proven and cutting edge treatments. It is inspiring to be led by Dr Chris Moss, who is so passionately committed to seeking out the modern proven advances in his speciality – not only in surgery, but in non-surgical technologies and modalities as well. At Liberty Belle we share that passion for excellence. This is why at our skin centre our clinicians are spoilt. They have more than just a single tool to treat each type of facial ageing. They have access to the most modern technologies available on the market. These include:-
  • State of the art skin tightening technologies currently available world wide (such as Pelleve, and Thermage)
  • The latest generation laser and light based technologies to improve skin texture, reduce pigment and smooth lines
  • A range of proven skin care products and prescription based treatments for ageing skin
  • A comprehensive range of the best anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections available

It’s important to have all these tools, because in this specialized field it’s never ‘one size fits all’.
