8 Reasons You Can’t Escape Fine Lines & Wrinkles as You Age

If you’re wondering whether wrinkles are a problem in Australia, all you need do is walk into a pharmacy. In the skincare aisle, you’ll see legions of lotions, shelves of serums, and crates of creams. They all promise the same thing:

Reverse and prevent wrinkles

Facial ageing is a problem no one can escape, primarily because of the many factors that contribute to its development:

  1. Loss of Collagen – The body’s store of collagen, a main building block of skin elasticity, is depleted as we age. Collagen supports the skin from beneath, keeping it plump, firm, supple, and wrinkle-free.

  1. Sun Damage –Australia is fortunate to be a sunny country, but UVA rays cause the majority of wrinkling in skin as well as the onset of skin cancer.

  1. Genetics – Your prospects for developing wrinkles, as well as the depth, degree, and even onset of facial furrows, is influenced by genetics.

  1. Eye Strain –People who squint because they are having trouble seeing create the same forehead furrows as people who frown.

  1. A Colourless Diet – Skin health starts on the inside. A properly nourished body announces that fact with radiant, glowing skin. Unfortunately, many Australians fail to include in their diets the colourful fruits and veggies that contribute to skin health.

  1. Dehydration – Even the mildest dehydration accentuates the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

  1. The Need to Express Ourselves – The more expressive you are with smiles, frowns and other facial expressions, the more crow’s feet, forehead folds, and mouth lines you develop.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Wrinkles & Fine Lines at Platinum Dermatology

Our specialists have mastered an extensive list of fast, effective treatments for facial ageing. Visitors to Platinum Dermatology can choose from non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments including*:

  • Treatment to address static wrinkles and fine lines – Specific facial muscles that control expressions and create wrinkles are treated. A series of medical signal blockers are introduced into specific facial muscles that control expressions and create wrinkles. By inhibiting the movement of those muscles, existing facial wrinkles soften and new wrinkles can be prevented from forming. The effects on active wrinkles lasts for three to six months.

  • Treatment to restore volume and improve laxity – Cosmetic medicine is utilised to push wrinkle lines outward and smooth the skin irregularities. The results are temporary on passive fine lines and wrinkles caused by ageing. They last about six months, or until the product is absorbed by the body.

  • Chemical Peels for Fine Lines and Wrinkles – Chemical peels employ cosmetic medicine to remove the top and middle layers of skin, along with the majority of fine lines, folds and wrinkles. A series of light peels performed at monthly intervals is good for fine lines and fine wrinkles. Deeper peels offer results that may last a year or more, and even longer with extra sun protection.

  • Microlaser Peels – When compared with traditional facials, masks, dermabrasion, and clarasonics, micro-laser peels are much more effective in firming the skin, improving facial lustre, and generally rejuvenating the face. A microlaser peel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. It provides superior facial rejuvenation because it can be administered with great precision of depth.Microlaser peels are not limited to the face. The treatment can be used to treat scars, sun damage, and pigment irregularities anywhere a chemical peel would be appropriate.

  • Medical Grade Microneedling (Dermapen) – Designed to address a wide variety of skin concerns, Dermapen is a quick and effective skin needling procedure that can help smooth and tighten the complexion by producing new collagen, filling in fine lines and plumping the skin.

  • BroadBand Light for Skin Fitness – A quick and comfortable treatment, BBL offers immediate and dramatic results in restoring a fresh and radiant appearance and can help improve the visible signs of ageing, prevent breakouts, rejuvenate the complexion and brighten the skin.

Laser Resurfacing Tackles Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Platinum Dermatology offers an extensive menu of laser treatments that offer temporary and permanent solutions to fine lines and wrinkles. Like chemical peels, laser resurfacing improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by removing layers of skin.* At Platinum Dermatology, the skin specialists use

  • Sciton ProFractional Laser for a More Youthful Complexion– Just as we aerate our lawns to grow thick, healthy grass, Sciton’s ProFractional Laser uses a similar concept to “aerate” your tissue and stimulate natural collagen growth. After a ProFractional treatment, you will immediately begin to experience tighter and rejuvenated skin.*

  • Sciton Erbium Laser for the Beautiful Skin Rejuvenation – treats more superficial, moderate and deep wrinkles/lines wrinkles and other conditions that detract from a beautiful complexion. During treatment, the activated laser is passed over the skin, precisely removing the damaged outermost layers of skin while sparing the surrounding tissue and promoting the formation of new collagen and elastin. One treatment is typically all that is needed.*
