Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but other lifestyle factors and even genetics can increase the likelihood of developing lines on your face. Factors can include:
Our bodies produce natural collagen fibres, which keeps our skin elastic and taut. The older we get, the less collagen our body produces. So, unless you've been following a hydrating and collagen-inducing skin care regime, you've likely developed extra wrinkles and fine lines.
We cannot understate the importance of sunscreen enough. There's a common misconception (outside of the cosmetic world) that you only need to wear sunscreen when you're at the beach, or it's a hot day. But, you actually should be wearing sunscreen everyday. If you haven't, then this is a probable cause for unwanted wrinkles.
Some people love their wrinkles and fine lines, and others hate them. We're not here to judge, only to facilitate removing and reducing wrinkles if that's what you want. We use a range of lasers to tighten the skin, like the Dual Fraxel and Clear + Brilliant lasers, or skin needling.
When you visit us for an initial consultation, we'll take photograph your skin with our Clinical Imaging System. Then, we'll chat with you about what you want to achieve. Taking into account your lifestyle, desired outcome, and skin type, we'll suggest a suitable option for reducing your wrinkles and fine lines.
You can get wrinkles at any age. Lifestyle factors, such as smoking, sun exposure, and pollutants in the air, can all increase the likelihood of getting wrinkles.
Unfortunately, all facial expressions can cause wrinkles. This doesn't mean you shouldn't smile! In fact, frowning uses more muscles than smiling, meaning it can cause more wrinkles, fast. Try to tune in to when you're furrowing your brow in concentration, or frowning in displeasure, and relax your face if you can.
There is a certain amount of discomfort involved in our treatments, depending on which technology or product we use. But, it's minimal. All of our procedures are non-invasive, and anti-wrinkle injections are minimally invasive. We can also apply topical numbing creams to reduce any unpleasant sensations.
You can definitely reduce the appearance of your wrinkles and tighten your skin by using skin care products. But you'll never get rid of your wrinkles completely, and it will take much longer to see visible results. With our skin solutions, our clients say they can see a noticeable change in their skin after just one treatment.
You deserve to be comfortable in your own skin. We treat all our clients as individuals, in a comfortable, non-judgmental environment. We don't believe in treating our clients with a 'one size fits all' approach which is why we won't provide a treatment until you've had your first consultation with us.
We will ask for your medical history and details about your lifestyle. Sometimes, prescription medicines can interact with our treatments, so we may need to call your GP or refer you to a dermatologist if we believe our solutions are not appropriate.
Our clients couldn't be happier with their post-treatment skin — see for yourself.
I'm super happy with Dr. Master, and his work on treating my forehead wrinkles. Two weeks after, my face looks fresh but natural — which is the look I was after. The ladies at the clinic were also very professional.
Extremely professional and full of knowledge. I was made to feel so welcomed, and they were happy to discuss all my concerns. My age spots almost diminished within just one session. Highly recommend!
I started visiting Vic Dermal Group after hearing amazing reviews. I was very impressed. All the staff were wonderful and professional. And the treatment I received has left me with glowing skin. I have kept going back as a consequence.
I went in for a consultation two months ago, and Derya explained everything in detail relating to my skin concern. She advised me on product recommendation and future treatments which were required. I was very happy with everything and would definitely recommend this clinic!
The skin is our largest organ and guards the body against microbes, temperature extremes, pollution and damaging ultraviolet (UV) sun rays. Many of us take care of our inner mental and physical health, but we often neglect our outer self.
