As we age, we lose collagen proteins that give the skin its ability to ‘bounce back’. This lost laxity coupled with thinning skin as part of the ageing process creates fine lines in expressive areas. Over-active muscles in areas like the outer corners of the eyes combines with thinning skin to create lines that appear when we smile. With the use of Botox anti-wrinkle injections, we relax these over-expressive muscles to soften how aggressively they contract the offending muscles. This results in more awake- and younger-looking eyes.
The crow’s feet area is also rejuvenated using radiofrequency, which is the ideal treatment for reintroducing volume to the skin. If wrinkles and fine lines are still present when your face is static; then added volume will benefit these ageing areas. This treatment is completely non-invasive, so no injections or numbing creams are needed at all. We use radiofrequency combined with vacuum technology to heat the skin cells which both break down fat cells and stimulates the production of collagen to tighten the skin.
Drooping and frowning eyebrows
A drooping brow contributes to tired eyes because it shows that the skin is losing structure and strength. The falling of the skin tissue and the brow pushes down the tissue below it, creating an unwanted fold above the eye. By using Botox anti-wrinkle injections to add the arch and lift back into a brow, we can help tired eyes appear more open and awake without the need for surgery or
