ABOUT FINE LINES & WRINKLES
Fine lines and wrinkles are often used interchangeably, but there is a difference between the two. Because these two concerns are different, they also require different treatments.
Fine lines often indicate the beginning of the aging process. These lines are usually small, shallow and difficult to see at first. Fine lines are often associated with frequent facial movements over time. Since these lines are so superficial, they respond to treatments much faster and easier than deeper wrinkles.
Wrinkles, on the other hand, form when fine lines aren’t treated quickly enough. If untreated, fine lines will deepen and progress into facial folds. Another difference is that wrinkles often form in different areas on the face and neck, while fine lines usually form around the mouth and eyes.
Wrinkles often form where untreated lines were or where the face has gradually lost volume. The nasolabial folds are common deep wrinkles located between the corners of the mouth and the nose.
