Lines and Wrinkles

Lines and Wrinkles

We will address the most common concerns that people have about their faces; breaking these down into general concerns about the skin and then discussing problems about specific facial structures.

Lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and pore size

We were all born with super smooth skin. As we go through life, the skin is subjected to numerous environmental toxins that cause lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Aging, heredity, facial expressions and gravity create fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the mouth and eyes. Over-exposure to the sun, alcohol use and smoking are all known to significantly accelerate the development of the lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.

These concerns affect the majority of our patients. There are both non-surgical and surgical methods of treatment for most of these conditions, the best approach depends on their severity. As previously stated, the exact, appropriate and best approach for you can only be determined by a personal consultation in our office.

Fine to moderate lines and wrinkles

Fine or moderate lines and wrinkles are most often treated non-surgically. For lines and wrinkles caused by the movement of your facial muscles, Botox is the best treatment. These areas include lines between the eyebrows (the glabella), lines to the side of the eyes (so-called “crows feet”), lines across the forehead, and on the nose as well as on the chin.
