The Best Fine Lines and Wrinkles Treatments

There is no escaping aging. There are, however, countless ways to delay its symptoms. Fine lines and wrinkles are the top two tell-tale signs of skin aging. As part of the natural aging process, they are inevitable but they are also preventable and treatable.

In this article, you’ll get in-depth information about them and how to master the art of aging gracefully using the best fine lines and wrinkles treatment we’ve found most effective here at McLean Clinic. Let’s get started.

Types of Fine Lines

Fine lines start to appear at the age of 30. They are small, shallow, and faint lines that form around the areas of the face that you frequently use to express yourself. As you get older, fine lines will become deeper and turn into wrinkles. They occur as a result of the body’s breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin.

  • Forehead lines – The horizontal lines across the T-zone
  • Worry lines – Two vertical fine lines between your brows
  • Crow’s feet – The crease between the outer corner of your eyes
  • Laugh lines – Called nasolabial folds, they appear in the corners of eyes and mouth
  • Lip lines – Sometimes called lipstick lines or smoker’s line, these tiny fine lines appear in the skin above the upper lips.
  • Marionette lines – The fine lines that horizontally line the chin

In a perfect world, prevention should be your utmost priority than any fine lines and wrinkles treatment. Experts suggest that genetics, lifestyle, and crease-forming habits play a pivotal role in how fast or how bad the creases on the face appear.

For the treatment of fine lines, start incorporating anti-ageing ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and retinol, into your regular skincare regimen. We recommend using medical-grade skin care products for maximum effectiveness.

The Best Fine Lines and Wrinkles Treatment

Wrinkles are next-level fine lines that are deeper, darker and appear in parts other than the face, such as neck, hands, and forearms. Before customizing a fine lines and wrinkles treatment for you, your doctor will first determine what type of wrinkle he/she is actually dealing with. As there are many different types of wrinkles caused and exacerbated by a lot of various lifestyle and environmental factors, it only makes sense that each treatment approach would be unique per patient.

    • Expression wrinkles – These are the deeper and more advanced versions of fine lines formed from frequently moving facial muscles. Examples of expression wrinkles are crow’s feet and frown lines. Neuromodulator injections or wrinkle-relaxing injectables, commercially known as Botox or Dysport, will work wonders for expression wrinkles. They are injected directly onto the skin to work on the underlying muscles and smoothen out the wrinkles on the surface. The effects are instant and last up to four months.
    • Elastotic wrinkles – A loss of elastic structure within the skin caused by excessive sun damage. Maintaining rigorous skincare focused on preventing and reversing the effects of sun exposure is crucial for elastotic wrinkles.

Laser resurfacing is also a more advanced measure for fine lines and wrinkles treatment of this kind. ProFractional Laser Surfacing can peel off the wrinkled layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production to reveal a younger-looking one. BroadBand Light/ Photorejuvenation can also be used in combination approaches of fine lines and wrinkles treatment because it targets age spots, sun damage and uneven skin texture.

  • Gravitational wrinkles – Appears as sagging skin, this is caused by elastin and collagen loss due to ageing and gravity. For gravitational wrinkles, the goals are firming up the skin and re-inflating the loose and drooping skin. This can be achieved by soft-tissue fillers, commercially known as Belotero, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra. The results are amazing, more natural-looking, and can last anywhere from six up to 24 months.
  • Atrophic wrinkles – Like elastotic wrinkles, atrophic wrinkles are also due to sun damage but it is also exacerbated by excessive steroid use. This is probably one of the most complicated types of wrinkles to solve because it involves loss of collagen structure and thinning of the skin. Your doctor may advise you to use medical-grade skin care products that focus on optimum hydration and go through laser light therapy to repair and regenerate the skin cells.
  • Compression wrinkles – A type of wrinkle formed when you regularly press your skin onto something, for example, when you sleep on your side and squish your face on your pillow. Sleep positions to avoid wrinkles, such as lying flat on your back, is a good way to prevent compression wrinkles. Thermage skin tightening treatment is also a brilliant remedy to get that stunning sculpted profile back.
