Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Fine lines that develop around the eye are often the first signs of aging. Because the muscles around the eyes get a good workout (from smiling, squinting, etc.), this is often the starting point in anti-aging treatments.

 

How wrinkled your skin becomes depends on many factors, including your skin type, genetics, and history of unprotected sun exposure and indoor tanning.  People with fair skin who have a history of UV exposure are particularly susceptible to wrinkles, skin damage, and skin cancer.  Studies show that exposure to UV radiation from indoor tanning beds damages the DNA in skin cells, leading to premature skin aging and skin cancer.

TREATMENTS
Exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun and indoor tanning beds is the most preventable cause of early skin aging. The most effective ways to prevent wrinkles and sun damage are avoid indoor tanning beds and protect yourself from the sun by seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, and applying a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
In-office procedures are commonly used to correct fine lines and wrinkles and include neurtoxins, dermal fillers, and resurfacing treatments.
