What causes wrinkles & fine lines?

Wrinkles & fine lines aare caused by a combination of repetitive facial movements, skin laxity, and a loss of collagen. Together these factors create cause lines and folds to become more prominent. As we age, our bodies lose elastin and collagen, which keep our skin hydrated, firm, and elastic. With repeated facial expressions over time, it becomes harder and harder for our skin to return back to its original “expressionless” state. As a result of aging skin, crow’s feet and frown lines develop, and the nasolabial folds become more prominent.

What are crow’s feet?

Crow’s feet, also known as laugh or smile lines, are the lines around the outer corner of the eye. As flattering as laugh lines sound, these unsightly lines appear typically in our early 30s, or earlier if you do not use an effective skin care regimen. Either way, these inevitable lines will appear as we age.

What are frown lines?

Also known as the 11’s, frown lines are the creases between the brows. They generally appear when you are angry, giving them their apt name. However, often times these unwanted lines also appear above the brow and around the eyes.

What are nasolabial folds?

The nasolabial folds are common deep wrinkles located between the corners of the mouth and the nose. As we lose volume in our face, these folds become more prominent and noticeable.

What’s the difference between wrinkles & fine lines?

Fine lines indicate the beginning of the skin’s aging process. They are shallow, small, and may be difficult to detect at first. Fine lines are often associated with repetitive facial movements, such as laughing, frowning, smiling, or squinting. They are so superficial that they respond to treatments much faster and easier than deeper wrinkles would.

Wrinkles can form when fine lines aren’t addressed. As a result, they will deepen and progress into facial folds. Wrinkles also tend to form in different areas of the face and neck, whereas fine lines frequently form around the eyes and mouth. Wrinkles often settle into the areas where untreated lines were or where the face has gradually suffered volume loss.
