Wrinkles and Expression Lines

How they form and what you can do

Why Do Wrinkles Form?

Crow’s-feet. Forehead wrinkles. Frown, laughter, expression lines. They’re very different from the chronological wrinkles we associate with aging.

Concerns About Wrinkles

The best way to smoother-looking skin is to have a great skincare regimen. Women of all ages want better looking skin, and for women in their 30s (and even their late 20s), that means fighting lines and wrinkles or preventing them from starting. Few people ever feel ready for or old enough to have wrinkles. So it’s important to know what causes them, how to treat them, or how to avoid getting them in the first place.

What Causes Wrinkles?

All wrinkles are not the same. Some are age related, while others are caused by dehydration, environmental factors, or lifestyle. And then there are expression lines, which are created by our facial muscles every time we make any of kind of expression. They’re especially visible on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth.

What are Expression Lines?

Expression lines are caused from your emotions. Every time you make a facial expression, muscles just below the surface of skin contract and pull down. Over time, as skin loses its ability to return to perfect smoothness, expression lines form. They’re the deepest kind of wrinkle and the toughest to treat.

Medical and Surgical Treatments

BOTOX® is approved only for the forehead and between the eyebrows. For crow’s-feet around the eyes, there’s dermabrasion. And collagen injections are best around the lips. There are many women, however, who do not want these treatments. And even those who do may opt to use the Wrinkle De-Crease Collagen Filler regimen in between treatments. Wrinkle De-Crease Collagen Filler helps smooth out wrinkles by plumping the skin with Collagen Biospheres. They’re able to absorb up to nine times their initial volume of water to make skin visibly smoother and tighter.

Have Better-Looking Skin

Many women are looking for miracles. But the most important thing is having a great skincare regimen. Every woman should have the right cleansing and toning products and the right moisturizers and treatments. They all work together to help keep skin healthy and young looking.
