Wrinkles can occur due to several causes, such as ageing, sun exposure, repetitive movement, and smoking. Our aesthetic treatments are individualised to achieve desired results. Wrinkle treatments can smooth lines, improve skin integrity or help restore volume to the face. During the ageing process, elastin and collagen levels reduce and the skin thins, losing volume. This causes frowns, lines, and wrinkles to become visible. Dynamic wrinkles (movement lines) become static and visible when you are not moving, if these static lines are not treated, they will become permanent.

Symptoms of Wrinkles

Wrinkles are the visible folds, fine lines, folds, and creases in the skin. Wrinkles become increasingly noticeable in the epidermis with age, continuing to worsen over time. Commonly, skin that is regularly exposed to UV light will age and become thinner more quickly. This can include specific areas, such as on the face or the back of your hands. Practitioners at Mollie Elise Aesthetics adapt treatments for each client to diminish the appearance of wrinkles to achieve a more youthful complexion.
