Fine lines and wrinkles are treated in a number of ways

A combination of Botox (botulinum A) and Dermal Fillers gives the best and most natural result.Botox is a naturally occurring protein. It targets specific facial muscles to relax them.

This has the effect of preventing the muscles from creasing up the skin and therefore prevents new lines and wrinkles from appearing. Botox also has the effect of preventing any current lines and wrinkles from getting deeper. Botox can be started at any time after the age of 20 to prevent lines and wrinkles. Dermal Fillers are gel like substances made of hyaluronon (a sugar). Hyaluranon is a naturally occurring substance in our skin and thus our skin does not react to it. Fillers plump up lines and wrinkles in the skin, improving their appearance, for 1-3 years depending on which Filler is used.

The effect is a subtle as you wish and very natural. Fillers also help to treat the signs of aging by stimulating collagen growth in the skin. How much Botox and Dermal Fillers is required and the cost involved is very much individual and thus a through consult with Dr Tracy Chandler is essential so that you are fully informed.
