What Are Facial Wrinkles?

Facial wrinkles are a natural and inevitable part of the ageing process, reflecting the gradual loss of skin elasticity and collagen over time. They can be broadly categorised into dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles seen with facial movement or animation) result from repetitive facial muscle movements, such as smiling or squinting, and are most noticeable around areas like the eyes, frown, and forehead areas. On the other hand, static wrinkles (wrinkles seen with no movement, when the face is at rest) develop due to the cumulative effects of repetitive muscle contractions, along with ageing, sun exposure, and lifestyle factors.

Is Ageing The Only Cause Of Facial Wrinkles?

The primary cause of facial wrinkles is the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, which provide structural support and resilience. Environmental factors, including prolonged sun exposure, smoking, and pollution, accelerate this process by promoting free radical damage and collagen degradation. Additionally, genetic predisposition, hormonal changes, and repetitive facial expressions contribute to wrinkle formation.

What Aesthetic Impact Can Facial Wrinkles Have?

The impact of facial wrinkles on appearance is significant, as they can convey the passage of time and affect one’s perceived youthfulness. Deepening lines and sagging skin may lead to a tired or aged appearance, impacting self-esteem and confidence.

What Cosmetic Treatments Reduce The Appearance Of Wrinkles?

Individuals often seek various interventions to minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles, ranging from topical treatments such as retinoids and antioxidants to surgical or non-surgical procedures. At NOVO we provide a variety of injectable solutions. Anti-wrinkle injections are specifically used for lines and wrinkles that are contributed to by facial movement, softening muscle contractions to help stop wrinkles from forming.

Dermal fillers, skin boosters such as Profhilo®, and the advanced hybrid dermal filler and skin biostimulator HArmonyCa® can be used to help strengthen the skin’s structure, enhancing volume and hydration to help smooth and brighten the complexion. We also offer PDO Thread Lifts which creates a more youthful appearance by lifting wrinkled, sagging skin.

Ultimately, the approach to managing facial wrinkles varies based on personal preferences and desired outcomes. Our experienced practitioners use an in-depth consultation to recommend the most suitable approach.

Blow Media have just launched our brand swanky new website and, excuse the pun, we are blown away. Scott, Ross and Rik nailed the brief we gave them and have gone above and beyond to produce a cracking website. It was also excellent value for money! The team were responsive throughout and were understanding and cool about last minute changes and design tweaking. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Best Website Design Agency in Berkshire in my view, perhaps the best in the UK. Have built 5 websites with them for clients in London, Leamington and Berkshire and every-time they knock it out the park.

This is an example of what our target clients are saying...“I have just looked at your new website….It does look amazing!!!! Very fresh, modern, vibrant and clear and simple to navigate. :)”. Exactly what we want - Scott and his team have delivered against the brief for our new website. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have worked with Blowmedia closely to build two websites. I am not a very techy person and was daunted by the whole process, Scott explained everything to me in a way I could understand, always at the end of the phone or contactable by email and the whole process dealing with him and his team was easy and painless. The website is very professional and easy to navigate and has instantly from being launched started to attract new patients. I would highly recommend Scott and the Blowmedia's team to build any website.

I initially spoke to a member of Blow Media's team at a trade show and was very impressed with what they had to offer and with the websites they had already built which I was able to look at on my phone as I queued up to speak to somebody. The initial meeting was followed up very promptly that following week with an email and a fully detailed proposal of what they could offer which was very easy to follow, explaining fully all their services and a breakdown of their costs. I had already researched web designers thoroughly and soon realised that Blow Media, from my initial meeting and early correspondance, was the company I was going to use. From day one they were very proactive and led the whole process. Scott the MD came to see us and very quickly fully understood and visualised what we wanted to achieve perfectly. He also recommended a content writer, an SEO company, a company to do some filming in the clinic and a photographer. We used all his contacts other than the photographer which we decided to try and do ourselves but have since decided to use the photographer Blow Media initially recommended as my photography was the only thing I could criticise about my website. I would highly recommend Blow Media and their whole team, I have already instructed them to start work on our second website as our first website is already delivering and the clinic has never been busier.

Blow Media built our first website back in 2011. They worked closely with us and were able to deliver an outstanding, well presented website that enabled us to get found on search engines. After our business continued to grow we commissioned a second website in 2014 and then our third website was built in 2018. Our experience from start to finish has been fantastic With a special mention for Tracy and Scott who always make the process a joy. I would highly recommend the team and have many times already!
