Fine lines and wrinkles are folds, ridges, or creases that develop on your skin. They’re a natural part of the aging process, but other factors can increase their number and appearance. Some of these factors include smoking, extended sun exposure, and eating a poor diet.
Fine lines and wrinkles fall into two main categories:
Dynamic wrinkles occur due to repetitive facial movements, such as frowning, smiling, or squinting.
Static wrinkles occur due to a loss of skin elasticity, combined with gravity. Over time, static wrinkles cause your skin to droop and sag, resulting in jowls and lost facial volume.
No matter the type of fine lines and wrinkles you experience, it’s possible to treat them and improve the appearance of your skin.
When your skin is young and vibrant, it springs back naturally. As you get older, your skin loses its flexibility. This lost elasticity causes permanent lines and grooves to form.
Your skin tone also plays a role. Studies show that people of Black and Asian descent have thicker skin. Ultimately, this helps prevent wrinkles, resulting in smoother skin throughout middle-age and beyond.
At Revive Medical Spa, Ardis diagnoses fine lines and wrinkles by reviewing your medical history, asking about your lifestyle and symptoms, and physically examining your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are visible to the naked eye, so there’s no need for further testing or diagnostic imaging.
Make sure to let Ardis know if you smoke or spend lots of time in the sun. You’ll also want to bring a list of prescription medications, vitamins, and nutritional supplements that you take regularly. Certain medicines can negatively affect your skin’s appearance and elasticity.
Treatment for fine lines and wrinkles depends on the severity of your symptoms and their effect on your quality of life. Ardis might recommend:
You might also benefit from Cartessa® Subnovii™ plasma treatment. Subnovii uses ionized gas to stimulate your skin at the molecular level. This triggers your body’s natural healing process, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
