Wrinkles Treatments Singapore
Thanks to natural ageing, our skin experiences the loss of collagen
each year and this often leads to the development of wrinkles. It can
develop in areas that are often exposed to the sun such as face, neck,
hands and even the body.
Although we can’t avoid factors that cause wrinkles, like prolonged
sun exposure or genetics, there are many non-invasive ways to treat
and improve the wrinkles.
Types of Wrinkles
Wrinkles are lines and folds that form in your skin. There are mainly two different types of wrinkles – Dynamic wrinkles and Static wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles are formed when you move a certain muscle group, especially when we make facial expressions such as smiling or frowning. Such wrinkles are not present when our muscles are relaxed.
For Dynamic wrinkles, the most common recommended anti-wrinkles treatment isBTX (Injectable Neurotoxins).
Static wrinkles are due to the continuous formation of dynamic wrinkles over the years, resulting in such wrinkles to be permanent and are present even when we are not making any facial expressions.
For Static wrinkles, Face Fillers injections are common for effective static wrinkles removal with immediate results.
Cause of Wrinkles
Besides repeated facial expressions that lead to wrinkles, there are also other factors such as stress, diet, smoking or environment that will cause wrinkles to develop over time. But, the two unavoidable factors that causes wrinkles are:
Ageing is one of the main factors for your skin to appear thinner and less elastic. The production of natural oil, fat and collagen decreases, and this causes loose, saggy skin and the formation of wrinkles.
Sun or UV Exposure
Unless we live on Mars, exposure to Ultraviolet (UV) light is the primary factor of early wrinkling. UV light speeds up skin’s ageing process as it breaks down collagen and elastin in skin, which causes skin to lose strength and flexibility.
Where do Wrinkles commonly form?
Forehead wrinkles like forehead lines or frown lines are present when facial muscle contracts. Loss of collagen can cause it to be more prominent or even permanent.
Skin around the eyes is very thin, besides ageing, rubbing or squinting the eyes can stretch your skin to form. Crows feet or under eye wrinkles.
Cheek wrinkles can be from repeatedly smiling and laughing. This can develop grooves, forming laugh lines or nasolabial folds, especially in saggy skin over time.
Marionette lines and mental creases are common chin wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions such as pouting or loss of volume over time.
Most people tend to overlook the skin around the neck. It can also appear thinner and wrinkled as we age. Too much screen time on your devices contributes to neck wrinkles too.

BTX (Injectable Neurotoxins)
BTX are neurotoxin injections used to treat dynamic wrinkles such as Forehead lines, Frown lines or Crow’s feet caused by overactive facial muscles. Neurotoxin injections work by inhibiting muscle contractions to soften wrinkles in the treatment area.
When these muscles are relaxed and can’t contract, the overlying skin appears smoother and less wrinkled. Essentially, by reducing muscle movement, BTX prevents the deepening of these dynamic wrinkles and can even soften their appearance over time.
This procedure is quick and minimally invasive, requiring a few tiny injections to achieve a youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are injectable hyaluronic acid used for volume replacement to treat static wrinkles and sunken areas, or for facial augmentation to enhance certain facial features. Injecting dermal fillers can also promote collagen production and skin hydration.
Dermal fillers are introduced into the skin using fine needles or cannulas. Once injected, they act like a sponge, absorbing water and expanding to fill in the area, thus immediately providing volume and lift. Most modern fillers are made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar molecule found in the human body. HA has a unique ability to retain moisture, making it an excellent material for adding volume and hydration to the skin.
By restoring volume, dermal fillers can smooth out lines and wrinkles, plump up thinning lips, enhance shallow contours, and even improve the appearance of recessed scars. The duration of the effects varies based on the specific type of filler and where it’s injected, but results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years or more.
Common dermal filler treatment areas are forehead, temple, cheeks, nose, chin or even lips.
Fractional CO2 Laser
Fractional CO2 Laser produces fine laser beams to create thousands of microthermal zones in the targeted areas, without damaging surrounding skin tissue. This triggers your skin’s natural response to produce collagen to improve overall skin texture.
The severity of your wrinkles will determine the intensity of the treatment.
