Fine lines & Wrinkles

Condition

Fine lines & Wrinkles

Fine lines & wrinkles are often one of the very first signs of aging. Fine lines are shallow lines that are superficial and closer to the skin’s surface while wrinkles are deeper. As we age, fine lines may turn into wrinkles.

Types of Fine lines & Wrinkles

Dynamic Wrinkles

Static Wrinkles

What causes it

What causes Fine lines & Wrinkles?

Aging

Collagen and elastin fibers are two major proteins that provide structure to skin’s firmness and elasticity. As we age, there is an increase in collagen and elastin breakdown. At the same time, there is also a decrease in collagen and elastin production. When this occurs, static wrinkles form on the skin’s surface.

Repeated facial expressions

Fine lines and wrinkles can form as a result of muscle contractions when we make facial expressions. For example, dynamic wrinkles often form at the corners of eyelids, between the eyebrows, and near the lips and forehead as a result of repeated facial expressions such as squinting, smiling and laughing.

Sun exposure

Research suggests that sun exposure is responsible for 80 percent of collagen and elastin reduction. The sun also weakens the bond between the dermis (a connective tissue layer of skin) and the epidermis (the outer layer of skin). As a result, the skin loses its firmness and elasticity and forms wrinkles.

You can slow down skin’s aging by stimulating collagen production and treating signs of aging as it appear.

Treatment Options

Dermal filler, also known as liquid facelift, is used to treat static wrinkles. Once injected, dermal filler directly provides the volume needed to smoothen fine lines and wrinkles. The results are immediate with no downtime and effects can last up to 24 months. 

Aesthefill is an emerging trend of injectable filler that stimulates collagen production in the deep dermis for lifting, firming and overall improvement of skin quality. Aesthefill is made up of Polylactic Acid (PDLLA) which is 100% natural.

Botox is a protein made from Botulinum toxin that is used to treat dynamic wrinkles. No-fake Botox is injected to the face to help relax facial muscles and reduce muscle contraction. Thus, it will smooth out existing wrinkles and give a youthful appearance for up to 4 months. 

Similar Conditions

From around the age of 25 the first signs of aging(wrinkles, dry skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, age spots) start to appear and become noticeable on the skin. Over time, the skin no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did.

Saggy skin is a condition where the skin loses its elasticity. A firm skin can stretch and return to its original form easily while saggy skin is the opposite.
