WHAT ARE WRINKLES?
What causes wrinkles?
Lines, creases, folds, crow’s feet and brow furrows are caused by the breakdown of the skin’s connective fibres, collagen and elastin. As we age, our skin becomes thinner and rougher. Over time, the repetitive movements of underlying muscles cause our skin to wrinkle. Our laser resurfacing treatments will minimize these lines and rejuvenate your skin to beautiful effect.
How can laser therapy treat wrinkles?
Laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses a laser to improve the appearance of your skin or treat minor facial flaws. Laser resurfacing can be done with two types of lasers:
- A wounding (ablative) laser, which removes thin layers of skin.
- A non-wounding (non-ablative) laser, which stimulates collagen growth and tightens underlying skin.
Our specialists can use either mode to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce skin discolouration and improve surface texture. Our system offers a degree of control and efficacy that allows for a highly precise sculpting of the skin, from light touch-ups to deep collagen remodelling.
