Treatments for wrinkles can be either surgical or non-surgical. The best treatment option for you will depend on the location of the wrinkle, the depth of the wrinkle, your age and the amount of improvement you are hoping to achieve. Sometimes a combination of treatments are required to achieve the best results.

A wrinkle is a fold in the skin. It can appear as a fine line or a deeper fold or furrow, depending on your age, lifestyle and health of your skin.
Wrinkles tend to get worse as we get older. They get deeper and more extensive in number. Although some wrinkles are considered ‘endogenous’ – where they happen simply because of the passage of time – most are ‘exogenous’, whereby external factors have contributed to the development of wrinkles. The biggest ‘exogenous’ causes of wrinkles are sun exposure and cigarette consumption. Both of these lifestyle factors cause premature ageing, which can be significant depending on your level of exposure.
Injections of Facial Filler
This works by plumping the skin below the wrinkle, reducing the depth of deeper wrinkles and folds. This is typically most effective in the lower part of the face, around the mouth area. Occasionally dermal fillers can be combined with injections in the upper face where the lines on the upper face are very deep.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
This works by burning some of the upper layers of the skin, so that when the skin heals it can look a bit smoother. This treatment is typically best for the finer lines and wrinkles.
Face and Neck Lift Surgery
This treatment works by removing loose skin and tightening the underlying muscles of the face. This is typically reduces the appearance of some of the deeper lines and wrinkles, although it is common to combine it with filler injections afterwards to reduce the remaining wrinkles.
