Understanding Skin Aging
There are a few factors that contribute to skin aging. These include:
- Collagen and elastin breakdown: These are proteins that provide structure and elasticity to the skin. As we age, the production of these proteins decreases.
- Reduced hyaluronic acid: This is responsible for maintaining skin hydration. Over time, levels decrease and result in dry and less supple skin.
- Environmental factors: Exposure to UV rays, pollution, and smoking can accelerate skin aging.

Micro-needling is an advanced, non-surgical procedure, which involves a handpiece with several very fine needles at the tip. This treatment can correct the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, and pigmentation. By creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin, the body's natural healing response promotes collagen production.
Botox and Dermal Fillers
Botox works by temporarily blocking chemical signals from reaching the nerves, therefore reducing facial muscle activity. Botox is extremely effective in helping patients smooth facial wrinkles and restore a younger-looking appearance.
Dermal fillers can be injected into wrinkles and instantly smooth them away. Depending on the brand of filler and the treatment area, fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years.
