Remove Lines and Wrinkles
Classifying wrinkles, also known as rhytids, is based on how deep into the skin the wrinkles extend. Fine lines are the result of changes in the upper dermis and may appear “etched” in the skin. Medium wrinkles reach the mid-dermis, and deep wrinkles known as furrows or folds, reach the deep dermis and subcutis.
While we cannot reverse every possible cause of wrinkling, there are steps we can take to minimize the aging process:
Avoid excessive sun exposure, including sun lamps and tanning beds. Ultraviolet exposure is greatest between 10am and 4pm. Use sunscreens in combination with other sun-protective measures.
Quit Smoking. Smoking not only increases perioral wrinkles (wrinkling around the mouth) but also places you at a higher risk for skin cancer.
Lead a healthy lifestyle. This includes a balanced healthy diet, daily exercise, and stress reduction.
Daily skin care should consist of mild cleansing of the face daily, application of a moisturizer, and daily sunscreen use.
