Wrinkles form from overactive muscles or loss of collagen.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity, volume and structural support, which leads to the formation of deep lines, grooves and folds – especially around the mouth. These wrinkles can cause an imbalance in the proportions and aesthetic harmony of the face. Dermal fillers and muscle relaxants offer a natural looking solution that is biocompatible and adds volume back to the face. Our goal is not to eliminate all wrinkles, but rather to ‘freshen up’ your look and enhance and restore your natural beauty.
Dermal fillers can treat wrinkles and lines that are caused by loss of collagen.
This kind of wrinkle is mostly found on the bottom part of your face, from below your eyes to underneath your chin. Dermal fillers are used to “plump” areas of the face that have lost natural collagen deposits. This treatment is made from hyaluronic acids or collagen which are naturally occurring substances found in the body. Dermal fillers are hypo-allergenic and are naturally broken down by the body over time.
Advantages of using dermal fillers
- Dermal fillers can reach great depths to create natural looking volume.
- They are naturally occurring substances so generally don’t cause allergic reactions.
- They are relatively non-invasive compared to major surgical procedures like facelifts.
- Dermal Fillers offer a youthful look that is non-permanent, which means there is little risk associated and they allow you to play with different facial changes in a non-permanent way.
Anti-wrinkle injections treat wrinkles and lines caused by overactive muscles.
This kind of wrinkle generally forms on the top section of your face, from your hair line to below your eyes. These wrinkles can be treated with an injectable muscle relaxant. Not only can it dramatically reduce the look of wrinkles, it can also be used as a preventive measure to stop the development of wrinkles early on. There is very little downtime, aside from some minor swelling and redness following the treatment, and you should see the complete effects in about 3-4 days.
For the French, beauty is not about looking totally wrinkle free and smooth.
Dr Pin has attended several conferences and workshops in Paris to keep abreast of the latest French style aesthetic medicine techniques. The aim is to soften selected lines while leaving others alone, so the face still has character and natural movement. True beauty is about harmony and balance, not about attempting to look younger.
