Some people see fine lines and wrinkles as well-earned signs of age and wisdom. For the rest of us, these aging signs simply act as reminders of old age. If you find yourself in the latter category, there are ways to take on these signs of aging to help you look more alert and youthful. Whether it’s the crow’s feet that develop at the corners of your eyes, glabellar lines (also known as frown lines or “the 11s”), nasolabial folds that appear around the nose, or marionette lines that appear around the mouth, fine lines and wrinkles are a reality of aging many of us would rather do without. Why do we get them and what can we do about them?
Normally, when you exercise your facial muscles, such as when you smile, frown or squint, your skin returns to its normal shape after you relax those muscles. This is due to two critical substances in your skin called collagen and elastin, which are responsible for your skin’s suppleness, volume, and elasticity.
Over time, your body produces less of these substances, so there is less available to provide resilience to your skin. The more you use your facial muscles, the harder it is for your skin to smooth out as you get older, especially if you have subjected your skin to high doses of the sun’s rays over the years. The result is fine lines and wrinkles.
Fortunately, modern medicine has devised many ways in which we can smooth out some of those fine lines and wrinkles and help ensure a more youthful appearance. These include neurotoxins like Jeuveau®, which relax the face and make it smoother, and dermal fillers like Revanesse® which give the face more volume. We can even do both of these in what we call a liquid face lift.
We can also discuss TempSure Envi™, a non-invasive, non-surgical radiofrequency treatment that promotes collagen production and tightens skin.
