Wrinkle and Volume Loss Treatments

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Anti-wrinkle treatments can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make the skin appear tauter and more rejuvenated.

There are anti-wrinkle or wrinkle-reduction treatments that are a very successful treatment for facial lines, furrows and wrinkles resulting from many years of facial muscle activity. These lines are commonly known by terms such as Forehead and Frown lines, and Crow’s feet.

The Doctors at Skin Doctor SA carefully assess your concerns about the muscles that create the lines in a manner which is medically safe and does not leave the face looking frozen or expressionless. The effects of some of the treatments available at Skin Doctor SA can be temporary (up to approximately 3 months) depending on, for example, the strength of the muscle. Further treatments will most likely need to be repeated every 3 to 6 months to maintain the effect, although some treatments may be required less with each successive treatment.

Volume Loss Treatment

We provide treatments to add volume to areas that are wrinkled or shallow. Volume Loss Treatments available at Skin Doctor SA can be used to treat wrinkles, furrows or hollows to give the face a fuller, more youthful appearance.

In younger faces the skin is soft and plump due to collagen and hyaluronic acid (a soft gel-like substance) in the dermis. With ageing, and exposure to sunlight or pollutants, the skin’s natural stores of collagen and hyaluronic acid are degraded and destroyed, causing “shrinkage” of the facial tissues that results in furrows and lines, and lip areas which are less full and more wrinkled.

The lips are prone to volume loss over time. For those who wish to enhance the appearance of the lips, or make them appear more voluminous, our team of Doctors can help.

Volume loss treatments available can help:

  • Volumise the checks
  • Rejuvenate the jawline
  • Enhance the nasolabial folds
  • Plump up facial lines, troughs, hollows
  • Facial or acne scar depressions
  • Frown lines that run between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Worry lines (across the forehead)
  • Marionette lines (drooping down from corners of the mouth to chin)
  • Smoker’s lines (around top lip mostly but may include lower lip)

At Skin Doctor SA our clinical staff will discuss the pros and cons of each treatment, bearing in mind efficacy, safety and together decide on the most appropriate treatment for your situation.
