Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Formation of wrinkles and fine lines are one of the key concerns faced by many women as part of the ageing process.

These wrinkles and fine lines form as a result of dehydrated skin, thinning skin and the loss of elastin and collagen as we age.

Types of Wrinkles

There are 2 main types of wrinkles namely:

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are lines that appear with muscle movement. For example, when we raise our eyebrows, frown or smile.

The lines that appear on our forehead, frown and at the corners of our eyes (also known as the crows feet region) are known as dynamic wrinkles.

Dynamic Wrinkles
Static Wrinkles

Static Wrinkles

Over the years of formation of dynamic wrinkles through facial movement, some of the wrinkles start to leave an indentation in the skin. These indentations and lines are present even when we have no facial expression.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are formed through a combination of factors.

Some of the most common causes of wrinkles include:

What Causes Wrinkles?

Sun exposure

Unhealthy exposure to UV light from the sun can cause significant damage to our skin. This is especially so if you do not wear sunscreen. Sun exposure accelerates skin ageing to cause thinning of the skin and the loss of collagen.

This often leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines

Unhealthy Lifestyle

Unhealthy lifestyle habits such as poor diet, smoking, alcohol and lack of sleep all contribute to the formation of wrinkles as well.

This is due to the premature ageing and damage on the skin due to these unhealthy lifestyle factors which leads to the early formation of wrinkles and fine lines

Loss of Collagen

As we get older, we lose collagen as we age. The loss of collagen often leads to skin that is less firm, dehydrated and saggy. This will make the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles appear more prominent.

Common Areas For Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Common areas that often form fine lines and wrinkles include:


Forehead lines are largely attributed to the frontalis muscle, which is the main muscle that is responsible for helping us to raise our eyebrows.

With frequent movement, together with skin ageing and loss of collagen, it can lead to the formation of deep lines, of which some may even become static lines on the skin.

Dynamic Wrinkles
Frown wrinkles


Strong or deep frown lines are formed when we furrow our brows. This often happens when we make facial expressions when we talk.

Having strong frown lines can sometimes cause us to appear angry or upset when we are not.

Strong frown lines can also leave deep indented lines in the skin over time, resulting to the formation of static lines.

Crows Feet and Under Eye

Wrinkles around the crows feet and under eye region are an extremely common concern amongst women as they can usually make us look older than we actually are.

How To Get Rid Of Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are best treated with Botox, or Botulinum Toxin. Botox is a simple, effective and cost effective treatment option to erase wrinkles successfully.

This treatment can be used to treat wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and frown lines

Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. This makes it an effective treatment for the dynamic wrinkles that are formed by the movement of facial muscles.

Where else can Botox be used to treat?

A simple treatment like Botox can not only be used to erase dynamic wrinkles on the forehead, frown and crows feet, it is extremely useful to address other common concerns faced in women as well.

Facial Slimming

Jaw Botox is one of the most popularly requested procedures in women iin their 20s to 40s for non surgical face slimming.

This procedure is quick, effective and has no down time.

Jaw botox works by slimming and shrinking bulky jaw muscles to create a more defined jawline and to create a feminine and slim facial contour that women desire.

Teeth Grinding

Jaw botox is also an extremely effective treatment for bruxism, also known as teeth grinding.

Patients suffering from this condition often face dental problems due to their teeth grinding, or wake up with soreness in their jaw or a headache.

Teeth grinding is caused by strong jaw muscles, and relaxing these muscles with a simple botox treatment can be life changing for patients.

Short Chin

A dimpled chin often resembles the appearance of an orange peel, also known as “Peau D’Orange”. This is a result of strong muscle action of the muscle around the chin known as the Mentalis.

A strong mentalis muscle can lead to unpleasant dimpling of the chin, or even affect the length, projection and shape of the chin, which is an important beauty feature in most women.

Relaxing the Chin muscle with botox can help to improve the contours of the chin and lower face, to help women achieve a more desirable jawline and face shape.

This treatment is often paired with a Chin Filler treatment, to further enhance the projection, contour and shape of the chin.


Bulky Calves

Prolonged wearing of high heels can lead to the appearance of bulky calf muscles, which can be undesirable for women.

Botox can be used on calf muscles to slim the bulky calf muscles down to help women achieve more slender looking legs.

Underarm Sweating

Botulinum Toxin or Botox is also an effective medical treatment for excessive underarm sweating as it helps to reduce activity of the oil and sweat glands.

This is useful for men or women struggling with excessive underarm sweating which can significantly affect their quality of life and social activities.

Botox Face Lift

The signature botox face lift, also known as the Dermalift, is a specialized type of superficial face lift procedure.

This works by tightening the skin around the face to rejuvenate and lift the face holistically.

This treatment is best complemented with other lifting treatments such as Ultherapy, Profhilo or Facial Fillers.

Oily skin and Enlarged Pores

Another specialized use of botox is the treatment of oily skin and enlarged pores.

This requires specialized expertise and experience from an experienced doctor.

Botox can be injected superficially into the dermis layer of the skin to help shrink pores and reduce oil glands, helping women to achieve that desired glassy porcelain smooth skin.

It is also useful in oil control, which can help to control acne and reduce acne flare ups as well.
