We all age differently. You can look at your best friend, who is the same age, and wonder why you have more fine lines. The truth is, our wrinkles and fine lines are a combination of our genetics and a reaction to our activities throughout the years.
What factors affect our skin the most:
- General Aging. Skin loses collagen and elasticity over time. This causes looser skin which can result in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Sun Damage. Exposure to the sun tends to break down our collagen more quickly, leading to loss of elastin and the appearance of wrinkles.
- Smoking. The results of repeated smoking reduces the production of collagen and causes skin to wrinkle more quickly.
There are many procedures that help with a reduction of fine lines. Some are more invasive than others. A facelift is a surgical procedure, and like all surgical procedures has a certain level of risk. Other options include laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. These later options can be helpful is you have sun or acne damage in addition to fine lines that are causing concern. A quick and relatively painless method of reducing fine lines is through injectables and facial fillers. Consult with a Lineout specialist for the products and services that will treat your areas of concern and give you a look you will love.
