Frown lines and forehead wrinkles, along with crows’ feet and other laughter lines are a natural part of ageing. They develop as our skin loses its elasticity so the lines made when smile, laugh, squint and frown tend to become permanent and more pronounced because our skin is less able to spring back into place.
While you can’t prevent these lines and wrinkles from forming, lifestyle factors such as too much exposure to the sun, smoking and an unhealthy diet can accelerate their development. Protecting your skin from the sun and wearing sun glasses outside, along with a good skincare regimen and a healthy diet may help to slow the process.
We offer a range of treatments to soften the look of lines and wrinkles on the face. Prior to deciding on any treatment you will have a consultation with one of our aesthetic practitioners who will talk through the different options that are appropriate for you and explain what results you can expect.
Recommended treatments for Frown Lines and Wrinkles
Here at The Cooden Medical Clinic we recommend the following treatments to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines:
Muscle relaxing injections can be used in many ways to prevent and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are a very effective way to treat frown lines by relaxing the facial muscles responsible for producing the problem. This treatment can be used either as a preventive treatment or to visibly soften existing lines.
Dermal Fillers used in the area can thicken the skin resulting in a smoother appearance to the skin.
PRP therapy has proven to be an effective treatment for wrinkles, loose, saggy skin and eye bags. The growth factors found in blood platelets help to increase the production of collagen, rejuvenating the body’s cells and skin.
Laser Resurfacing using Candela sublative technology is a highly effective, safe and proven resurfacing treatment. It targets the surface of the skin to provide wrinkle reduction and is perfect for lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture.
Topical Homecare Treatments can improve fine lines in the skin. We recommend Obagi®’s highly effective Professional C Serum 5% (Eye) and the Elastiderm Eye Treatment Cream or Gel.
