Wrinkle Removal

Reduce Under Eye Bags, Dark Circles, and Wrinkles

A wrinkle is a line, crease or fold in the skin also called a rhytid. There are two types of face skin wrinkles:
  • Dynamic wrinkles are lines, creases or folds that are caused by the pull of the facial muscles during repeated facial expression. Examples of dynamic wrinkles or lines of facial expression are the frown lines, worry lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines. These wrinkles are seen with movements of the face during emotion.
  • Static wrinkles are lines, creases or folds in the facial skin seen when the face is at rest and not moving. Static wrinkles are caused by skin aging, sun damage, smoking and by long term dynamic lines that become permanent.
What causes wrinkles in the skin?

There are two main causes of wrinkles:

  • Skin aging from sun damage causes loss of collagen and elastin which causes the skin to loosen and lose fullness and tension. The result is that the skin forms small ridges and folds and the crease formed by the fold becomes a line or wrinkle.
  • Repeated facial movement by the face muscles pulls on the skin, and where the muscle attaches to the skin a crease, line or wrinkle forms.
