Causes & Treatment of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is the most prominent and natural part of ageing process which is more prominent on the skin exposed to sun such as on the face, hands and neck. Wrinkles are formed due to the breakdown of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid within the skin. This further causes the breakdown of skin’s support structure reducing its elasticity and strength. The skin fibre breaks down giving a rough texture to the skin which results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Causes of fine lines and wrinkles

There are number of factors which contribute towards the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Some are within your control while others are not.

  • Ageing: this is one of the major factors. As we get older, the skin losses its elasticity and become more fragile. The production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, elastin and natural oils decreases making wrinkles and crevices more prominent.
  • Sun UV exposure: another major contributing factor is the UV radiations of sun which accelerates the natural ageing process. The UV radiations break down the connective tissues of skin which cause premature sagging and wrinkling of skin.
  • Smoking: it can also play a role in accelerating the normal process of ageing.
  • Hereditary factors: these also play a part in creation of wrinkles and lines.
  • Excessive facial movements: formation of facial expressions like squinting, frowning or smiling can also lead to formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Every time we use a facial muscle, it makes a groove under the skin’s surface. With ageing the skin loses its elasticity to come back to its place making permanent grooves.

Dermaroller is a popular technique used for treating fine lines and wrinkles and for complete skin rejuvenation. It is also referred to as ‘micro-needling’.

Botox is one of the most popular and effective treatment for treating fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. Botox effectively treats frown lines, bunny lines, eye wrinkles, crow’s feet, smoker’s lip lines, chin lines etc. Small quantities of Botox are injected into the fine lines and wrinkles which prevents the muscles from contracting. This makes the skin appear smoother with fewer wrinkles. The immediate effects of the treatment can be observed causing significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles giving smooth and tightened skin.

At CosmeDocs, we use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm® and Teosyal® for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are injected into the affected area by using fine needles. The hyluronic acid naturally hydrates skin and stimulates the production of collagen. Dermal fillers are used to give volume and plumpness to the skin areas and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while rejuvenating the skin.

Often, combination of treatments is recommended including Botox, dermal fillers, skin or cosmeuceuticals treatments for fine lines and wrinkle treatment to give the best results.
