Facial lines and wrinkles are common as we age. Exposure to the sun and other environmental toxins, including tobacco smoke, can lead to an irregular thickening of the skin which causes facial lines to form. Various skin diseases, previous surgery, and prior injury can also lead to more changes in the texture of your skin over time.
Deeper facial lines, referred to as furrows, can also appear with age and may be more obvious with movement of the facial muscles. Furrows give the appearance of several different types of facial lines including:
- Crow’s feet (around the eyelids)
- Worry lines (along the forehead)
- Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
- Bunny lines (along the bridge of the nose)
- Marionette lines (at the corners of the mouth)
With the right treatment plan, remarkable changes in your facial appearance can be obtained, providing a younger appearance and improving your complexion.
