Face Wrinkle Treatments in Cyprus, Greece & Malta

Dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle toxins and other FDA-approved substances help eliminate wrinkles that alter your look as you grow older. A face with visible, deep wrinkles has a negative effect on people’s confidence and social life.

Dr. Stavrou offers high-quality facial wrinkle treatments in Nicosia Cyprus, Limassol Cyprus, Athens Greece, and Sliema Malta.

Our anti-wrinkle treatments are safe and effective for smoothing out forehead wrinkles, frown lines, the crow’s feet and other areas of the face where wrinkles and fine lines are apparent.

What Is Face Wrinkle Treatment?

Facial treatments for wrinkles are a breakthrough in anti-aging care, designed to deeply combat and reduce the appearance of fine lines on the face. These highly scientific treatments are powerful solutions that help stimulate and rejuvenate the skin, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance.

One of the best non-surgical options for reducing noticeable signs of aging is through facial injections. This medical procedure involves injecting FDA-approved toxins into specific areas of the face to temporarily paralyse facial expression muscles that cause wrinkles. The treatment is gentle yet effective at minimizing fine lines and preventing further signs of aging.

The results from these anti-aging facial treatments can be quite noticeable, with improvements in radiance and overall skin health. Patients will notice a reduction in uneven texture as well as an enhanced glow and vitality to their complexion. It’s like hitting the refresh button on your skin, leaving it looking younger, healthier, and more beautiful.

Which Is The Best Treatment For Wrinkles On Face?

The best and most popular non-invasive anti-wrinkles treatments for the face are toxins, dermal fillers, mesotherapy with skin boosters, platelet-rich plasma treatment (PRP) and the Face and Neck Rejuvenation PROFHILO skin remodeling treatment.

  • Botulinum Toxin

It is a non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedure with a short recovery time that efficiently smoothens the face’s wrinkles. More specifically, it temporarily blocks signals’ transfer from the nerves to the face’s muscles, making wrinkles relax and soften.

It is a great anti-aging therapy for treating forehead lines, frown lines and the crow’s feet.

  • Derma Fillers

Dermal fillers is a highly effective and painless non-invasive way to make your face look younger and fresh. Also called “wrinkle fillers,” this is a gel-like, soft substance that consists of hyaluronic acid (HA).

Hyaluronic in dermal fillers comes to replenish the skin’s hyaluronic loss that occurs naturally in our face as we grow older. As a result, the fillers can add volume, soften facial wrinkles and creases, enhance the face’s contours and restore a youthful appearance.

In addition to rejuvenating the face and delaying the need for plastic surgery, dermal fillers have no serious side effects, may last more than toxins and can enhance the result of previous cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift.

What Does Anti-Aging Facial Treatment Involve?

Step 1: Pre-injection Stage

Dr Stavrou’s specially-trained medical staff cleans the patient’s skin thoroughly with an antibacterial agent and applies local anesthetic cream to numb the area of interest. Many anti-wrinkle products include a mild anesthetic that helps minimize discomfort during and after treatment.

Step 2: Anti-wrinkle Substance Injection

Dr Stavrou uses disposable, fine needles (syringes) with blunt microcannulas to insert tiny amounts of the anti-aging substance into the patient’s face, beneath the epidermis. The injection process takes just a few seconds per site of treatment.

The anti-aging substance injection might last from 15 minutes up to an hour, depending on the extent of the treated area.

Step 3: Clean Up, Recovery & Results

The medical staff cleanses the treated area and offers the patient an ice pack to reduce potential mild swelling and bruising and alleviate discomfort. Patients can resume their everyday activities, and even return to their work immediately after the procedure. Skin improvement may be noticeable on the same day or a few days later.

Sometimes, one treatment is not enough for patients to achieve the desired results. Depending on how your skin reacts to the anti-aging cosmetic therapy, you may need an additional anti-wrinkle treatment soon after the first injection.

Edit: I thought I'd add to my review after 1+ year post operation! I got my nose done by Dr Stavrou 27 months ago. The results are beyond excellent and I couldn't ask for better service from the doctor and the team! For anyone who's wondering, almost all of the swelling and bruising was gone after 2 weeks and my nose currently looks like it did about a month after the operation. I highly recommend him!! Old review: Today is the 10th day after my rhinoplasty with Dr Stavrou. Dr Stavrou operated on me following a functional rhinoplasty performed by my otolaryngologist. It was a painless experience and the results have exceeded my expectations! It hasn't affected my daily activities apart from the fact that I was not allowed to work out excessively. The swelling and bruising has almost disappeared completely. The results are excellent and I finally have a nose that complements my face. Not to mention the entire team was very helpful! Thank you so much Dr Stavrou!

Η περίπτωση μου ήταν λιγότερο συχνή και διαφορετική από αυτές που ακούμε στην καθημερινότητά μας. Μεγάλες αυξομειώσεις βάρους (40-50 κιλά) μετά από δύο βαριατρικές επεμβάσεις για αντιμετώπιση της νοσογόνου παχυσαρκίας, με αποτέλεσμα την υπερβολική χαλάρωση του δέρματος σε πολλά σημεία του σώματος. Είχα την τύχη να ακούσω για το Δρ. Σταύρου από φιλικά άτομα, και όταν αποφάσισα να επισκεφτώ πλαστικό χειρούργο ήταν ο πρώτος που πήγα και εκεί άκουσα και έμαθα για το body contouring. Ακολούθησαν πολλά ραντεβού, άπειρες ερωτήσεις, απορίες και φόβος από την πλευρά μου. Όλες οι απαντήσεις του Δρ. Σταύρου άμεσες και ειλικρινείς, ακόμα και αυτές που δε μιλούσαν για βελτίωση όπως ήθελα να ακούσω! Καμιά απάντηση δε δόθηκε απλά για να μου «χαϊδέψει» τα αυτιά. Ο ίδιος με παρότρυνε να επισκεφτώ και άλλους πλαστικούς για να ακούσω και άλλες γνώμες. Τελικά, ήταν ο μόνος που με έπεισε, ο μόνος που μπορούσε να καθησυχάσει το φόβο, το άγχος και την αγωνία μου και ο μόνος που είχε απάντηση σε ότι τον ρωτούσα και έτσι ακολούθησα το ένστικτό μου και επέλεξα τον Δρ. Σταύρου για να προχωρήσουμε μαζί σε όλο αυτό που αποφάσισα να κάνω. Ήξερα από την αρχή ότι τα χειρουργεία θα ήταν πολύωρα και αυτό με φόβιζε περισσότερο αλλά ο γιατρός ήταν εκείνος που με την ηρεμία του με καθησύχαζε. Σε περίοδο έξι μηνών υποβλήθηκα σε δύο πολύωρα χειρουργεία. Η μετεγχειρητική μου πορεία και στις δύο επεμβάσεις ήταν η καλύτερη δυνατή και η ανάρρωση πολύ πιο εύκολη από όσο περίμενα και από όσο προετοιμάστηκα ψυχολογικά να αντέξω. Όλα όσα μου είπε ο Δρ. Σταύρου για τη μετεγχειρητική πορεία, τον πόνο και την ταλαιπωρία, δεν ειπώθηκαν απλά για να με «παρηγορήσουν» να μη φοβάμαι και να μην ανησυχώ. Ήταν όλα ειλικρινή και αντικειμενικά. Όπως ακριβώς μου τα περιέγραψε, έτσι ακριβώς έγιναν. Ακόμα και στα θέματα που αφορούσαν τη ψυχολογία μου ο γιατρός ήταν εκείνος που ήρεμος, μετρημένος και χαμογελαστός με καθησύχαζε. Γιατί όταν ένα άτομο μπαίνει στη διαδικασία να αρχίσει κάτι τόσο σημαντικό, δε μετράει μόνο το να είσαι άψογος σαν επαγγελματίας απέναντί του, αλλά και το να γνωρίζεις τη ψυχολογία του ασθενή σου ανάλογα με την κάθε περίπτωση και ο Δρ. Σταύρου κατέχει την πρώτη θέση και στα δύο!! Αισθάνομαι τυχερή που επέλεξα να εμπιστευτώ στα χέρια του γιατρού Δρ. Σταύρου την αποκατάσταση του σώματός μου και που ο φόβος δεν με απέτρεψε από το να αποφασίσω να κάνω όλα όσα η περίπτωσή μου απαιτούσε, ώστε να έχω το καλύτερο δυνατό αποτέλεσμα. Θα ήταν άδικο αν ο φόβος και η ανησυχία για τα πολύωρα χειρουργεία, τον πόνο και την ανάρρωση δε με άφηναν να έχω κάτι καλύτερο. Γιατρέ μου σε ευχαριστώ για όλα! Συνέχισε το λειτούργημα που κάνεις με τον ίδιο ακριβώς τρόπο που το κάνεις γιατί είναι σπάνια και μεγάλη αρετή να έχεις την ικανότητα και τη δύναμη να χαρίζεις τόσα πολλά χαμόγελα στους ανθρώπους!

FAQs for Face Wrinkle Treatment

Can wrinkles be removed permanently?

Non-invasive anti-aging treatment, such as dermal fillers or toxins, is an efficient, fast and safe way to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines on your face. 

However, it is a temporary option, so you have to follow up with your doctor when muscle contraction returns. This can happen in three-four months or even a year after your first anti-wrinkles treatment, depending on the substance used and your skin condition. 

When wrinkles and fine lines return, you will need to undergo a supplementary face rejuvenation treatment to preserve your youthful and fresh appearance.

If you wish for a permanent decrease of wrinkles and fine lines on your face, then you should consider undergoing a facelift, neck lift, or brow lift.

If you have any questions or concerns about permanent anti-aging plastic surgery, reach out today to the accredited European Institute of Plastic Surgery (EIPS) and Dr. Stavrou at +357 9787 3787, +357 700 88 002 or +30 6971 881 572.

At what age do wrinkles start?

The first signs of aging start becoming visible on the skin from around the 25th year of our life.

The first thing you notice on your face are fine lines. As you grow older, wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and loss of volume become more noticeable too.

Aging is a natural process that none of us can avoid. However, with the progress of science and medicine, there are many anti-wrinkles treatments you can benefit from – either these are non-invasive and temporary, or invasive and permanent.

Dr Stavrou will examine your skin condition and ask about your expectations before advising you on which anti-aging procedure is more suitable for you.

Can wrinkles be removed naturally?

No, wrinkles cannot be removed naturally once they appear on your face.

What you can do, though, is to delay their appearance or reduce their extent with temporary non-invasive anti-aging treatments.

To delay the appearance of wrinkles on your face:

  • Avoid sun exposure without wearing sun cream
  • Refrain from smoking
  • Moisturize your face efficiently
  • Drink plenty of water every day
  • Follow a healthy diet


Once wrinkles are noticeable on your face, you can opt for temporary non-invasive anti-wrinkles treatments, such as toxins, dermal fillers, and more.

If you wish for permanent wrinkles removal, discuss with Dr. Stavrou about the types of plastic surgery, their pros and cons, as well as which procedure would be more suitable for you.

How long do Botulinum toxins last?

Botulinum toxins may last from 3 to 6 months for most patients.

It is common to last shorter than 6 months for first-timers, but its duration will increase after the second treatment.

What is the best cosmetic treatment for deep wrinkles?

The most efficient and long-lasting way to treat deep wrinkles is through plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts and brow lifts. These surgical interventions remove excess skin and tighten underlying tissues, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

But if you want to complement or delay the need for surgical procedures, a qualified doctor can offer you the option of non-surgical treatments, such as dermal fillers. For example, hyaluronic acid injections can temporarily plump and fill deep wrinkles, while botox injections relax the muscles responsible for certain wrinkles.

Innovative microneedling treatment with Alma Beauty Reboost offered at our clinic in Nicosia and Limassol is also a non-invasive option that can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Ultimately, the choice between surgical and non-surgical approaches depends on individual goals, preferences, and the recommendations of a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Stavrou. Consulting with an experienced professional can help determine the best treatment plan tailored to your specific skin needs.

What is the cause of wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. Here’s a list of the most common causes of wrinkles:

  • Aging: As we age, our skin undergoes changes. The production of collagen and elastin, proteins that help maintain skin’s elasticity and firmness, decreases over time. This leads to thinner, less elastic skin that is more prone to wrinkles.
  • Sun Exposure: UV radiation from the sun is a significant contributor to premature aging and wrinkles. It damages collagen fibers and elastin, leading to sagging and wrinkle formation. It’s essential to protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen and wearing protective clothing.
  • Smoking: Smoking accelerates the aging process of the skin. It narrows blood vessels in the outermost layers of the skin, reducing blood flow and depleting the skin of oxygen and nutrients. This leads to premature aging and the formation of wrinkles, particularly around the mouth.
  • Facial Expressions: Repeated facial expressions, such as smiling, squinting, or frowning, can lead to the development of dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines. Over time, these lines become more permanent.
  • Dehydration: Skin needs proper hydration to stay plump and youthful. Dehydrated skin can appear dry, dull, and more prone to wrinkles. Drinking enough water and using moisturizers can help maintain skin’s hydration.
  • Genetics: Genetics play a role in how our skin ages. Some people may be genetically predisposed to develop wrinkles earlier or more severely than others.
  • Lifestyle: Poor nutrition, excessive alcohol consumption, and inadequate sleep can all contribute to premature aging and the formation of wrinkles.
  • Environmental Factors: Pollution and exposure to harsh weather conditions can damage the skin and contribute to wrinkle formation.
  • Skin Care Routine: Neglecting proper skin care, such as failing to cleanse, moisturize, and protect the skin, can accelerate the aging process.

What removes wrinkles fast?

There are several invasive and non-invasive ways to remove wrinkles. Of course, opting for an invasive procedure will remove wrinkles faster and with long-lasting results.

  • Facelift: A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens sagging facial tissues, including the removal of excess skin. It provides long-lasting results for reducing wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance.
  • Neck Lift: Similar to a facelift, a neck lift specifically targets sagging skin and wrinkles in the neck area. It can address issues like “turkey neck” and horizontal neck lines.
  • Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): Eyelid surgery can correct drooping eyelids and reduce wrinkles around the eyes, including crow’s feet. It can provide a more alert and youthful look.
  • Brow Lift: Also known as a forehead lift, this surgery raises the brow to reduce forehead wrinkles and frown lines. It can create a more refreshed appearance.
  • Fat Grafting: Fat grafting involves transferring a patient’s own fat from one area of the body to the face. It can fill in wrinkles and add volume to areas that have lost fullness due to aging.
  • Injectable Fillers: Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid or collagen-based fillers, can plump up wrinkles and fine lines instantly, providing a smoother appearance. Results are immediate but temporary.
  • Botox: Botulinum toxin injections relax muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like crow’s feet and forehead lines.


Are wrinkles inevitable?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, and for most people, they are, to some extent, inevitable.

Wrinkles are not solely dependent on age. Genetics plays a significant role in determining when and how wrinkles develop. Some people may experience wrinkles earlier in life due to their genetic makeup, while others may maintain smoother skin for longer periods.

However, environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and skincare habits also contribute to wrinkle formation. To minimize wrinkles, it’s crucial to practice good sun protection, adopt a healthy lifestyle, and consider dermatological treatments like retinoids, antioxidants, and medical procedures when necessary.
