Fine Lines and Wrinkles

What causes fine lines and wrinkles?

Lines and wrinkles result from a number of causes including the natural ageing process, sun damage, smoking, contraction of facial muscles, chronic dehydration, and loss of volume of the skin.

Fillers are typically used to address lines and wrinkles of the lower face. Lines around the mouth, jaw and nasolabial fold (the fold that runs from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth are largely caused by loss of volume of the soft tissues under the skin. Replacing this volume with a filler can instantly reduce lines. This is a simple procedure performed in the clinic and usually involves no down-time. For this reason it is always a favorite with patients and doctors.
