It’s a fact of life that at some point, everyone will experience lines and wrinkles as they mature.

Luckily, there are anti-aging treatments you can apply to reduce and prevent lines and wrinkles from getting you down, many that don’t even require going under the knife. Dr Lanzer is a respected leader in dermatology and a talented plastic surgeon renowned for both his surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to reverse the signs of ageing.
Along with a dedicated medical team, we can formulate a targeted treatment plan to help you achieve healthy, glowing skin and provide you with the support your skin needs as you grow older. Get in touch with us today to discover how we can help you.
One of the most visible signs of ageing is a gradual loss of skin elasticity and the appearance of fine lines. This is due to a decline in collagen and elastin production. As we get older, the natural oils in our skin diminish and cause wrinkles while a reduction of fat in the deeper layers of tissue can cause the skin to sag with a loss of volume.
Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural result of ageing, but they can also be caused prematurely by repeated facial expressions, smoking, and too much sun exposure without wearing sunscreen.
Our skin is our largest organ. At Dr Lanzer, we are all about keeping and creating healthy skin. There are many internal and external factors that can contribute to the aging process and with the right guidance and advice you can be on your way to achieving your desired results.
There are many different types of wrinkles that you can develop that will determine the type of treatment you choose to combat them. Wrinkles fall into one of two categories – static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are caused by a loss of gravity and elasticity due to natural ageing. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repeated facial movements, such as regularly smoking or frowning.
The most common types of lines and wrinkles you’ll encounter, include:
1. Forehead lines – These are horizontal lines that run across your forehead
2. Worry lines – These are two vertical lines that can appear between your eyebrows
3. Bunnies – These lines develop horizontally on the bridge of the nose between the eyes
4. Crow’s feet – These lines extend outwards from the outer corner of the eyes
5. Laugh lines – These lines appear around the upper lip and are also called nasolabial lines
6. Lip lines – These lines are tiny vertical strokes around the outside of the mouth
7. Marionette lines – These are jowl lines that form vertically from the mouth to the chin and are caused by drooping cheeks
If you’re not ready for a facelift, there are many anti-ageing treatments that could potentially remove fine lines and wrinkles without implementing surgery. These treatments can be quite elaborate and range from HydraFacial Treatments and skin resurfacing with fractional lasers to dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. A more detailed overview of some of these treatments can be found below.
At Dr Lanzer we have a range of specific and medical grade treatments available to prevent the early signs of aging or to reduce the current appearance of the signs of aging. Common treatments that can be added to a treatment plan include the Accent Prime, Excel V +, Venus Viva, Dermapen, Antiwrinkle and Dermal Fillers, Peels, Ulthera, HydraFacial, and Dr Lanzer’s D’Lumiere Skincare.
The Venus Viva is one of our specialised anti-ageing treatments that uses radio frequency to ablate and resurface the skin. Venus Viva anti-ageing treatments work with a special radio frequency applicator. It is specifically designed for skin resurfacing, which means it can address problems with skin texture as well as abnormalities on the top layers of the skin. Therefore, it is suitable for fine lines and wrinkles, as well as skin tone problems, sunspots, scars, pore enlargements and more.
The Venus Viva can address many skin concerns at once. Unlike traditional laser resurfacing that uses CO2 lasers to correct skin, we use radio frequency for a gentler procedure with minimal downtime that is relatively painless for most patients. In addition to that, the results are long-lasting.
This collagen induction therapy has quickly become a very popular treatment worldwide. Dermapen reduces acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads, and scarring to deliver overall skin rejuvenation.
This is achieved by the dermis being perforated which in turn triggers our natural wound healing response which stimulates new collagen and elastin formation. This results in plumper, smoother skin, reduced wrinkles, and an improvement of acne scarring. It also reduces the appearance of pigmentation, enlarged pores, and stretch marks.
Laser Genesis is perfect for busy, on-the-go individuals who are interested in combating the early signs of aging to reveal a new, radiant complexion. Laser Genesis improves the signs of aging and dramatically reverses years of accumulated sun damage, wrinkles, and age spots safely and effectively. With minimal to no downtime and the ability to safely be treated on all skin types, Laser Genesis is the perfect laser treatment to address many skin concerns.
Skin tightening with the Accent Prime uses Ultrasound and Radio Frequency to gently contour and aesthetically enhance the face and body. Using a series of handheld devices and combined technologies, our highly experienced team apply deep tissue heating to the skin to contour and tighten, as well as reduce cellulite in the body.
Ultherapy is a collective term that refers to a non-invasive treatment for ageing symptoms. The procedure is associated with natural results without the need for a recovery period.
The Ulthera device works by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These two compounds are often lacking due to the natural ageing process, so reproduction of these compounds can have a dramatic effect on common signs of ageing.
Ultherapy is extremely effective because the device allows the health professional to see the specific layers of skin they are targeting. This also means they can provide a more targeted anti-ageing treatment. It can be used to counteract sagging skin and wrinkles on the face, jawline, neck, and chest, as well as a drooping brow area.
Patients can experience some side-effects from Ultherapy. These side-effects include some minor swelling, redness, numbness and tingling shortly after the procedure.
The gradation in which these side-effects are experienced can vary from patient to patient.
Anti-wrinkle injections, such as Botox, are a safe, effective, non-invasive Cosmetic Injectable treatment used to reduce and further prevent fine lines and wrinkles. They work by injecting a muscle relaxing agent into the facial muscles to smooth the outer layer of skin and minimise facial expression lines. Performed by our experienced team of nurses and doctors, we are all about creating and enhancing the natural look.
Dermal Fillers are a non-invasive Cosmetic Injectables treatment which we use to add volume and to create structure and enhancement to your face. They help to replace the volume that has been lost with age or with fat loss and results can last between 6-18 months with a minimal recovery time.
Peels are the perfect way to remove excess dead skin and reveal glowing, smooth skin underneath. It works by targeting the outer layers of the skin, removing dead skin cells, and causing old skin to exfoliate off.
Skin peels can improve skin texture and tone. It also stimulates collagen production, which smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to that, peels can reduce skin discolouration.
Side-effects can occur after a chemical peel treatment. Common side-effects include some redness and minor swelling. In some cases, patients can experience scabbing.
HydraFacial is an advanced technology that delivers the results of an advanced facial in under 30 minutes. HydraFacial is so much more than just another facial. It’s an experience. A pleasure. A feeling. And a confidence booster. It focuses on the unique philosophy of ‘Skin Health for Life’. If you’re after a pick me up, a skin booster is the treatment for you.

The appearance of our skin can have a big effect on how we feel about ourselves and our level of confidence. Skin care concerns are incredibly varied, and it can be difficult to know how to treat them without the help of a specialist in dermatology. Some of the most common skin complaints we encounter at Dr Lanzer, include:
1. Lines and wrinkles – Whether it’s the process of ageing, weight loss, or repetitive movements, wrinkles are a cosmetic concern for many men and women.
2. Acne scarring – Acne can cause scars that range from minor to major with keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, and more affecting skin texture and appearance.
3. Sun damage – Sun exposure can cause all sorts of skin concerns, including wrinkles, pigmentation, freckles, and skin cancers.
4. Volume loss – Facial volume loss happens when our skin fibres begin to degenerate with age, causing the skin to lose its support and sag downwards.
5. Stretch marks – These marks can appear after the skin has been stretched rapidly over a period of time.
6. Dry skin – Dry, flaky skin is a very common skin concern and can be treated by using a combination of effective skin care products, such as our D’Lumiere range.
7. Rosacea – This skin condition causes redness and visible blood vessels and bumps on the face. It is caused by hereditary and environmental factors.
