What Are Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles are those little creases that can appear in the corners of the eyes, on the forehead, and around the mouth and nose as a result of the continuous pulling on your skin by your facial muscles over time. These lines and wrinkles create a look of sagging skin that makes you appear less youthful.

What Are the Different Types of Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

The most well-known types of fine lines and wrinkles include:

  • Crow’s feet – those little “crinkles” around the corners of your eyes.
  • Brow lines  – Also called glabellar lines, those lines appearing across your forehead.
  • Frown lines – Vertical lines in the middle of your forehead, also called “The Elevens.”
  • Nasolabial folds – Wrinkles around the nose and corners of the mouth.

What Are the Causes?

There are substances in our skin known as collagen and elastin that keep it resilient and responsive to stretching by our facial muscles. It is these fibers that allow our skin to “snap back” when stretched, keeping it tight and firm. As we age, collagen and elastin production decrease. This makes our skin less able to return to its original position, creating a look of loose or sagging skin with wrinkles as we get older.

How Do We Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles at Esslinger Medical and Aesthetics?

At Esslinger Medical and Aesthetics, we believe that loving the way you look is an important factor in good health.  Rarely is there one single intervention that produces the best, most desirable results. That’s why we offer a vast array of treatment combinations to improve the appearance of the lines and wrinkle that contribute to an aging appearance.

One option is TempSure® Envi, a procedure in which we use a special device to administer a precise level of radiofrequency energy to the areas of your face that require skin tightening. The device is designed to deliver this energy for just the right amount of time and the exact right intensity to stimulate new collagen production without damaging tissue. While there is heat generated, the process is generally not painful and does not require recovery time. We have found that combining these treatments with neuromodulators and more aggressive procedures such as Potenza™ RF Microneedling, PicoSure® Pro laser and ICON™ Laser Skin Resurfacing provides optimal, longer-term results to reduce wrinkles without surgery or extensive downtime. Request a consultation today to let us engineer the best treatment plan for you.
