Wrinkles, Skin Folds
and Fine Lines
While part of the aging process, wrinkles can also result from your choice of sleeping positions, weight loss, exaggerated facial expressions, sun exposure, smoking, poor hydration and a variety of other factors. Collagen and elastin work together to create skin strength, firmness, and shape. Over time, aging can deplete the skin of collagen and elastin giving rise to folds, ridges and creases in the skin.
While arguably for some people wrinkles and fine lines could be described as enhancing their personality, many people find that early onset of wrinkles and fine lines, especially around their eyes, give them a tired, weary look and make them look and feel less youthful. Many people also feel that skin folds around the area of the mouth and jaw make them look stern or angry.

Today, while there are a number of options available that can significantly reduce wrinkles, skin folds and fine lines, it is important that you find treatments and procedures that are suitable for your skin type and needs.
Non-surgical procedures and treatments such as fractional laser, radio frequency energy and Botox are great options for alleviating wrinkles and fine lines. For Marionette Lines (deep wrinkles that extend from the mouth to the jaw) and Nasolabial Folds (deep lines from the outer edges of the nose to the edges of the mouth) dermal fillers are good choices.
