What It Is
Forever doomed to be lumped together with wrinkles when the signs of ageing are discussed, fine lines actually differ from their deeper counterparts and appear on the skin from a much earlier age. For the most part, fine lines can be found around prominent facial features such as the eyes and the mouth, as it is these areas that engage in the most facial activity throughout our lives. Fine lines are small, shallow and less noticeable impressions and can, if not properly treated, naturally turn into wrinkles as we age.
Why It Happens
As previously mentioned, fine lines emerge on the face as a result of the repetitive movements that we all perform on a day-to-day basis. When coupled with the body’s natural decline in collagen and elastin – two proteins vital in the maintenance of a smooth, youthful-looking appearance – facial expressions such as smiling, frowning and laughing can cause the thinner skin that sits around the eyes and the mouth to deteriorate, resulting in less-than-desirable creases that may deepen without the appropriate care.
Fine lines can also develop due to several other lifestyle and environmental factors such as prolonged exposure to the sun, a poor diet and persistent smoking.
How it can be treated
The formation of fine lines is somewhat preventable and this is something that can be achieved by ensuring that you use products that can both safeguard your skin from sun damage and keep it radiant and nourished. Common skincare ingredients such as retinol are well known for their ability to encourage collagen production and quicken the process of skin renewal.
Those looking for a surgical method of preventing and managing the development of fine lines can benefit from ClearLift Laser Treatment, a sophisticated, laser-driven form of anti-ageing procedure that targets the dermis (the skin’s middle layer) to help achieve a tighter, rejuvenated look.
