FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

Ageing is a natural process that affects everyone, but it doesn’t have to mean looking older than you feel. At Dr Rachel Tunney Aesthetics in Ringwood, Hampshire, we understand that fine lines and wrinkles can be a source of frustration and insecurity for many people. That’s why we believe in helping you look and feel your best at any age.

Fine lines develop gradually as the skin loses collagen and elastin, which are important for providing structural support to the skin. The skin also creases over time due to muscle movements and a loss of volume in the deeper layers of the face. This can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, which can be particularly noticeable around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.

We understand that your confidence can be impacted by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and that’s why we offer a range of options to address these concerns.

At Dr Rachel Tunney Aesthetics, we believe that looking great for your age is achievable. With our personalised approach to treatment and skincare, we can help you feel as confident on the outside as you do on the inside. Don’t let fine lines and wrinkles hold you back – schedule a consultation with us today to learn more about your options.

What if I don't want injectables?

Not a fan of injectables? No problem! We offer various non-injectable options to help reduce the appearance of lines and prevent deeper wrinkles from forming.

Our evidence-based treatments and proven skincare ingredients help stimulate collagen production and, combined with consistent sunscreen use, can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles over time.

While it may take longer to see the desired results, we understand that everyone has different preferences and comfort levels when it comes to anti-ageing treatments. Our approach is to work with you to find the best solution that aligns with your goals and values.

Can you get rid of all my wrinkles?

 

Softening visible lines can give a more natural look than completely eliminating them, and we offer treatments that can help achieve this. By starting treatment before lines become too deep, we can also prevent them from developing or worsening.

At Dr Rachel Tunney Aesthetics, we believe in being open and honest with our clients about the results they can expect.

When can I start having treatment?

 

Looking after your skin early on can help reduce the appearance of fine lines in the future, regardless of age. Incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine can offer long-term benefits.

Injectable treatments such as anti-wrinkle or dermal filler treatments are prohibited for those under the age of 18. In most cases, these treatments are not usually necessary for those in their twenties.

If you begin to notice the development of fine lines, scheduling a consultation with a professional can be helpful in exploring your treatment options.

Fine lines are a natural and inevitable part of the ageing process, but with the right care and attention, it’s possible to slow their development. We recommend these tips to slow the development and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Firstly, wearing sunscreen is the best defence against photoaging. Sun damage can cause collagen and elastin to break down and increase the risk of skin cancer. Use a high SPF (30+) and broad-spectrum sunscreen every day.

Next, avoid smoking as it produces free radicals that can damage collagen and elastin. This damage can lead to lip lines or smoker’s lines that can be difficult to treat.

Clever use of skincare ingredients such as vitamin C or antioxidants and retinoids can prevent future damage to the skin and stimulate new collagen to be produced. These ingredients are perfect additions to your skincare routine, particularly from your mid-twenties/early thirties onwards.

Finally, avoid consuming too much sugar in your diet, as high-sugar diets can cause damage to collagen through a process called glycation. This can result in the development of lines that look like cracks in the skin. Diets low in sugar, but high in vegetables and proteins can help give your skin the right nutrients to protect your collagen.

By following these tips, you can help slow the appearance of fine lines and maintain a youthful appearance.

CLINIC TREATMENT OPTIONS

 

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

We can use anti-wrinkle treatment to relax the muscles, resulting in reduced skin creasing and formation of deeper fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers

In some areas, small amounts of premium dermal filler can be used to provide structural support to the tissues, reducing how much the skin creases.

Skin Boosters

Profhilo, Redensity One and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) can deeply hydrate the skin and promote the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to help soften lines and plump the skin.

Collagen-Stimulating Treatment

SkinPen microneedling or Morpheus 8 radiofrequency microneedling can significantly increase collagen levels in the skin which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the surface layers of the skin.

Skincare

A good medical-grade skincare routine can compliment your in-clinic treatments so that you maximise your results and keep your skin healthy. If you are concerned with fine lines and wrinkles, we recommend incorporating some of these ingredients or products into your homecare routine.

I would highly recommend Dr Rachel. She is very professional, kind and actually listens to your concerns. Also no pushing of any treatments until you’re 100% sure. See you again soon x

My consultation with Dr Rachel was relaxing and very informative. She really listened to my concerns and what I wanted to achieve and recommended the best products and treatments for an ongoing skincare regime. She was very honest in what she thought would be most beneficial to me to achieve my desired results and also advised me on what she didn't think was necessary at this stage. The Hydrafacial was superb and I couldn't believe how fabulous my skin looked and felt afterwards. I am very much looking forward to starting my course of treatment and receiving my tailored skin care products.

The atmosphere at Studio 50 is relaxed and welcoming with comfy chairs in the waiting room and magazines to browse through. The treatment room where Rachel is based is spotlessly clean and Rachel welcomes you warmly and puts you at your ease. As always Rachel takes time to check that you understand the procedures and listens carefully to your concerns. She is very calm and reassuring and takes great care over carrying out the procedure so that any discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum. She gives lots of expert advice and information during the consultation and it is really helpful to have emailed versions of this as I often forget some of the verbal information! I would totally recommend Rachel to carry out any treatment on offer as my appearance has definitely improved so that friends comment on how well I look since visiting Rachel. Another session with Dr Rachel yesterday. The Lumecca treatment was new and exciting! It was a virtually painless treatment which was done very quickly and caused very little after effect. The results within 24 hours are exactly what I was hoping for. Already I can see much better skin tone in the areas treated. Can’t wait for another session.
