The mobile areas of the face around the eyes and mouth are where fine lines first develop with ageing.
If you are a smoker, the first thing to do is to stop immediately. Smokers have more advanced skin ageing from the nicotine damage.
Using good medical skincare products containing quality vitamin ABC serums can help to improve skin quality.
The most important skincare product is a broad spectrum SPF50+ sunscreen. Excessive sun exposure contributes significantly to premature skin ageing such as fine lines and skin discoluration.
A series of broad band light (BBL) treatments has no downtime, helps to improve uneven skin discolourations, and stimulates collagen regrowth to soften the fine lines.
A small amount of Botox and fillers around the mouth and eyes area, can help to restore volume loss, and decrease dynamic wrinkles. Treatment has no downtime, and you can return to work straight away. Slight bruising and swelling can be covered with makeup, and goes away on it's own in a few days.
Cost of treatment will depend on the amount of product injected, and is usually quoted during the consultation. Most clinics have some pricing guidelines on their websites, which can give you an approximate ballpark.
More severe wrinkles may need ablative fractional resurfacing lasers such as erbium or carbon dioxide. There is a downtime of up to a week.
See a qualified cosmetic doctor for a thorough consultation and assessment, before deciding on which treatment options suit you best.
