Fine Lines And Wrinkles

What are fine lines and wrinkles?

Fine lines are the beginning stage of wrinkles, appearing as small and shallow creases on the surface of your face. Wrinkles are deeper in the skin and more pronounced. They can appear anywhere on the body but are more prevalent on the face, neck and hands.

What causes fine lines and wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles are mainly caused by the following internal and external factors:

Aging

As the body goes through its natural aging process in the 30s and 40s, skin laxity is reduced and collagen production slows down. Natural facial movements such as speaking, eating and smiling cause creases in the skin. As you age, the skin doesn’t bounce back as easily, leading to more fine lines and wrinkles. Aging skin also becomes more dry and is slower to heal which contributes to wrinkles.

Facial muscle movements and everyday habits

Facial movements such as smiling, squinting and frowning can cause wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyebrows and corners of your eyes (crown’s feet). As time passes, these movements along with gravity eventually lead to wrinkles and fine lines.

Certain daily habits such as sleeping facedown on a pillow can also cause wrinkles. Although they can disappear during the day, they can become permanent if the habit is long-term and your skin is not hydrated enough.

Sun exposure and tanning beds

Excessive ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun and tanning beds damages the skin cells, leading to premature aging and accelerating wrinkle formation.

Environmental factors

Regular exposure to air pollution, air conditioning and dry environments can lead to developing fine lines and wrinkles.

Smoking

Smoking is also a major cause of developing fine lines and wrinkles, especially for younger people. This is because regular smoking breaks down collagen and reduces the skin’s elasticity, allowing wrinkles to form more easily.

What are the types and symptoms of fine lines and wrinkles?

The symptoms of melasma include:

  • Fine lines and creases on your skin
  • Expression lines (fine lines caused by facial movements)
  • Gravitational folds (droopy skin that occurs with aging)
  • Compression lines (occurs during sleeping)
  • Deep wrinkles on the nose and corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds)

How are fine lines and wrinkles diagnosed?

Fine lines and wrinkles can be diagnosed through a visual examination by a doctor or dermatologist.

What are the treatment options for fine lines and wrinkles?

There are many treatments available for fine lines and wrinkles, depending on the patient’s age and severity. It’s recommended to start treatment at the first sign of fine lines to prevent them from deepening into wrinkles and becoming permanent.

Facials and skin therapy treatments

Non-invasive facials and skin therapy treatments can dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with minimal to zero downtime. We offer the following treatments:

LDM

Using dual, high-frequency ultrasound technology that delivers a micro-massage to the skin to improve the skin’s pH balance, this treatment is suitable to treat fine lines and wrinkles by promoting blood circulation and collagen cross-linking.

OZ Aesthetic Cryo Poreless Facial

Cryotherapy is a popular treatment to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as it cools the skin, promoting firm skin and constricting blood vessels. The OZ Aesthetic Cryo Poreless Facial not only tightens the skin but also restores it to a more youthful condition to prevent fine lines from forming.

Miracle Exosomes (ACSE Exosome Skin Therapy)

Using a naturally regenerative process to delay aging, the ACSE Exosome Skin Therapy helps to repair damaged skin and reduce wrinkles by using stem cell-derived exosomes.

Over-the-counter treatments

Retinoids that contain ingredients such as retinol, adapalene, tazarotene and tretinoin and retinol aldehyde (Retin-A) improve your skin’s hydration and collagen levels to prevent and reduce lines and wrinkles. Check with your doctor to see if retinoid creams are suitable for your skin.

Aesthetic treatments

Some treatments that are used to combat fine lines and wrinkles include:

  • Chemical peels
  • Dermal fillers
  • Micro-needling
  • Facelifts
  • Microdermabrasion
