What causes fine lines and wrinkles?
The formation of fine lines and wrinkles is most often caused by the natural aging process. As our bodies age, the production of collagen, elastin and other skin support structures in the body decreases and the existing collagen begins to break down causing the skin to lose its volume and elasticity. The loss of volume and elasticity causes the skin to sag and further emphasizes fine lines, wrinkles, and other visible effects of age.
Repeated facial expressions like frowning, squinting, smiling, and laughing can create fine lines and wrinkles. These are called dynamic wrinkles because they are the result of movement. The repeated contraction of the muscles pulls the skin in the same motion repeatedly, as the skin loses its elasticity it does not return to its original position leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Aside from the natural aging process, environmental and lifestyle factors can lead to the formation or increased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Excess exposure to the sun without sun protection can cause sun damage and photoaging, which can contribute to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Smoking, alcohol consumption, lack of nutrition, stress, allergies, and lack of sleep are other environmental and lifestyle factors that can contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
How can I treat fine lines and wrinkles?
There are four classifications of fine lines and wrinkles- mild, moderate, advanced, and severe- and treatment plans vary depending on their severity. At Nuance Aesthetics, we offer a wide range of treatment options to help our patients improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We offer a variety of injectable treatments to smooth and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® injections help improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by relaxing specific facial muscles and reducing their ability to contract. We also offer a selection of the Juvederm® line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to restore volume to the face and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This treatment uses laser energy to remove the damaged outer layer of the skin. The heat energy created during the treatment stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to smooth the surface of the skin and restore a younger-looking appearance.
