What is the best wrinkle treatment?
LInes and wrinkles are one of the most obvious signs of ageing, and one of the most common concern we treat at Skin Resus. We have some fantastic treatments for lines and wrinkles in our Perth clinic, including wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, collagen stimulators and active skin care.
The best treatment for your wrinkles depends on where they are, how deep they are and how long you would like the results to last. Of course, your budget and how much down time you can afford will also affect your decision. Our cosmetic medical team can advise you on the best wrinkle treatment for you. Come in for a free consultation with one of our Registered Nurses and we can discuss your concerns and your treatment options.
Before and after wrinkle relaxers for crows' feet*
Wrinkle relaxers in our Perth clinic are an extremely safe and effective method of reducing or eliminating facial lines and wrinkles. They are particularly effective for lines on the upper face, such as frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet. Wrinkle relaxers are injected in tiny amounts into the skin where the wrinkles occur. This is quick and fairly painless. The relaxant blocks the impulse travelling from the nerve to the muscle, preventing movement. The effects take 2 - 7 days to appear and usually last 3 - 4 months. There is no down time after a wrinkle relaxer treatment, although occasionally a small bruise can occur. Read more about Wrinkle Relaxers.
Before and after dermal fillers*
Dermal fillers are used to plump and fill medium to deep lines, such as naso-labial lines, marionette lines, lip lines and smokers' lines. They can also be used to hydrate and thicken the skin so that fine lines are less apparent. The dermal fillers we use in our Perth clinic are man-made and allergy free, and last from 6 to 12 months, depending on the product used and the area treated. Results are seen immediately. There is often no down time after dermal fillers, but mild swelling can be present for a few days, and bruising can occasionally occur. We recommend that you have a filler treatment at least 2 weeks before any special event. Read more about dermal fillers.
Before and after Erbium Laser Resurfacing to upper lip*
Laser resurfacing, using lasers such as the Erbium or CO2 Lasers, is very effective at reducing or eliminating lines and wrinkles and tightening loose skin. We use the Sciton Erbium Laser in our Perth clinic and see great results. Most clients are happy after a single treatment, though for deeper lines or for more delicate areas such as the neck and chest, two or more treatments may be needed. You can expect 7 - 10 days down time after Laser Resurfacing, and best results are seen 1 - 3 months after the treatment. Results are permanent, though of course it won't halt the ageing process. Read more about Laser Resurfacing.
Before and after MicroPen treatment*
Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that helps “hold” the skin together, giving it firmness and elasticity. When we’re young, our skin stays plump and smooth because it constantly regenerates itself. But as we age, collagen production slows – and existing collagen can get damaged due to sun exposure and bad skin habits. The result? Lines and wrinkles. Active skin care (see below) can increase collagen production, but to really give it a boost we recommend any (or all) of the following treatments:
- Micropen Collagen Induction Therapy
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Rejuvenation
- Fraxel Laser
- Chemical Peel
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
- Dimalux LED Therapy
Before and after Aspect Dr Active C serum*

You can spend a lot of money on skin care that smells nice and is moisturising, but really does very little. But after years of dermatologist-led research, there is now very strong evidence about the power of active skin care in reducing lines and wrinkles. A true anti-ageing skin care regime should include:
- Sunscreen - because prevention is always better than a cure
- Anti-oxidants - to protect and repair damage from free radicals
- Retinol cream - to boost collagen production and increase cell turnover
- Fruit Acids and Lactic Acids - to exfoliate and leave your skin glowing
- Peptides and Growth Factors - to firm skin and stimulate collagen
