Age Lines and Wrinkles

Age lines and wrinkles are inevitable as we age. It’s a natural by-product of the aging process as skin cells divide more slowly and begin to think. Age lines and wrinkles can also have other causes including facial contractions, sun damage, and smoking. Smiling, frowning, squinting, and other habitual facial expressions can cause wrinkles to be more prominent, especially as you age. Excessive sun exposure can also cause premature aging of the skin.

Removing skin layers to reduce wrinkles or irregular depressions is one way to treat your skin and give yourself a more youthful appearance. Dermabrasions (or scraping layers of skin away) and chemical peels (dissolving skin away) are two methods used to treat age lines and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing, Botox, and facelifts are other options for treatment.
