Many wrinkles can be relaxed with Botulinum Toxin injections, however, folds are sometimes in areas which can’t be relaxed in this way. Instead, Dermal Filler injections or collagen can be used to ‘plump’ the skin under the line and soften its appearance.
Any skincare routine for expressive folds should focus on preserving the skin’s collagen structures. Intact collagen provides an even base for the upper layers of the skin. Daily use of a high SPF, broad spectrum sunscreen protects collagen against UV-induced degradation, while Vitamin C and Vitamin A (retinaldehyde) can stimulate collagen producing cells to produce more collagen.
