Treating Fine Lines
Fine Lines - What are they?
Fine lines are very superficial wrinkles that can develop over time. They come for a number of reasons. The most common is chronic sun exposure. Patients who smoke also have more fine lines than patients who don't smoke.
Impact on the patient
Patients often don't like the appearance of fine lines. It can make them look older, it can make them looked tired, and just change their appearance in a negative way.
How to treat them?
Treatments for fine lines really would be tailored to individual patient depending on where on the face they occur. It will be important to get an optimized skin care regimen that targets the sign of aging. Other treatments may also be required.
Laser and light-based treatments can help soften fine lines as well as injectable non-invasive cosmetic treatments, like botulinum--you may have heard of Botox or Xeomin.
Soft tissue fillers like Juvederm or Restylane can help to smooth out the appearance of fine lines.
