Fine lines and wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles, the most common sign of aging skin.Sun exposure and smoking are the most common environmental causes for wrinkles, though stress can also be a factor.

Fine lines and wrinkles are signs of intrinsic or chronological aging; there's no way to entirely avoid them. As we grow older, our skin becomes thinner and drier. Weakened collagen makes the skin less elastic. Static wrinkles begin to appear. The rate of intrinsic aging occurs at a variable, genetically determined rate; the process is often first noticeable between the ages of 30 and 35.

We do have control over extrinsic aging, a result of exposure to the environment. Extrinsic aging is the critical element in determining who looks older or younger than their biological age. Over-exposure to sunlight is responsible for the majority of problems associated with extrinsic aging. Sun-damaged skin is photoaged from a decrease in collagen and other dermal proteins. This gradual process results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, these can progress into deep wrinkles and furrows. Photoaging also causes pigmentary changes; "age spots" (sun-induced freckles), uneven skin tone, spider veins and dilated capillaries.
There are a number of options for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, each with a varied recovery time and results. The following are the most common conventional treatments used today:
  • Topical application
  • Dermabrasion and Microdermabrasion
  • Chemical Peel
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing
  • Dermaroller
  • Fillers
  • Botox
