Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles, fine lines, and skin folds are a result of changes in the skin that develop naturally with time but are significantly accelerated by sun exposure and cigarettes. The skin becomes thinner and drier from the effect of the loss of collagen, elasticity and moisture retaining proteins. Changes in the upper layer of the skin (epidermis) results in a rough, dry appearance.

Lines between the eyebrows form from repeated muscle activity associated with frowning. Over time, the repeated raising of the eyebrows can cause forehead lines and tightly closing the eyes can cause what we call “crow’s feet”. Relaxing of the muscles in these areas can reduce or eliminate these lines.

Lines also form in the facial area from a change due to the loss of fat or bone structure. There can be a natural downward movement of the underlying fat and the thinning of skin causing lines to appear. Similarly, you can think of these natural changes like leaving an apple to dry.

There are three types of what we call wrinkles or lines:

Fine Lines

Occur throughout the face due to thinning of the skin and the loss of collagen and moisture retaining proteins in the skin.

Expression Lines

Develop associated with facial muscle activity causing permanent creases.

Gravity Lines

Develop as the tissues in the face sag, forming furrows and lines.

The Rosenthal Clinic offers a variety of treatments to effectively treat wrinkles and fine lines. During a consultation, we can establish a treatment plan. Relevant medical factors and timescales affect choice of treatment.
