LINES AND WRINKLES – Conditions

lines and wrinkles

There are plenty of options out there when it comes to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but it’s important to consider which method of anti-ageing treatment is right for you and your needs.
The most common forms of injectable anti-ageing include dermal fillers, wrinkle relaxing injections and Profhilo. While all 3 are administered via an injection, they each offer the patient something very different. We also have thread lift treatments available.
From fine lines and wrinkles to age spots and loss of firmness , we can provide a range of treatments to eradicate the signs of ageing. We offer treatments to ease fine lines and wrinkles here at Elixir Cosmetics – you can book a consultation here.


What causes lines and wrinkles?

As we age the skin changes and we see the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is due to the loss of collagen in the skin, and as we get older hydration levels drop sometimes causing a crepey appearance. Wrinkles can also be caused by repetitive facial movements.

Where do lines and wrinkles form?

Wrinkles most commonly form around the eyes and mouth. These are usually called crows feet or laughter lines. Furrows can also form in the brow line. Some people get more obvious lines than others.


Can lines and wrinkles be prevented?

To some extent yes. While we can’t stop the ageing process, we do have cosmetic treatments available that are ideal for preventing new lines form forming or smoothing existing wrinkles.


What treatments are available?

Wrinkle reduction treatments are straightforward and speedy. More often than not injectable treatments can be offered but we also have different types of aesthetic treatments for skin rejuvenation to the face. Here are some of the most popular options for smoothing lines and wrinkles.

Muscle relaxing injections

These are non-surgical injections to reduce the signs of the skin’s ageing for patients – we use Botox. Muscle relaxing injection treatments allow patients to improve the look of signs of ageing within the skin whilst also preventing the formation of further signs of ageing.

Muscle relaxing injections are a great tool in the fight against the signs of facial ageing. They freeze the facial muscles, making it harder for them to cause strain to the skin and therefore making it virtually impossible to crease or stretch the skin further. They affective, fast acting and offer results that last around 6-9 months.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a hugely popular form of non-surgical cosmetic treatment to fill lines and wrinkles. They can be combined with muscle relaxing injections – such as Botox Cosmetic – to smooth away crows feet and improve facial contours. Results can last up to 18 months. We use Profhilo – you can read about this injectable here.

Thread lifts

Unlike fillers and injectables, thread lifts use fine threads to lift skin and improve the appearance of the face. The help to promote new collagen growth and can also lift the cheeks and lower face. Results last around 18-24 months.

ZO peel

Skin peels are excellent at reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The ZO peel we offer at Elixir Cosmetics helps to rejuvenate the skin by encouraging new tissue to grow using controlled damage to the dermis. Results vary patient to patient.
