Wrinkles, folds and fine lines, while part of the aging process, 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.
Today, while there are a number of options available that can significantly reduce wrinkles, 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.
