Oftentimes, people interchange the terms lines and wrinkles. However, lines and wrinkles are not one in the same. Lines and wrinkles are uniquely caused by different factors.
When looking for facial treatment and procedures such as fillers, Dr. Dominic at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery feels that it is necessary to be aware of the many differences. Differences in technique, products, and lines vs. wrinkles. Once you understand the difference between these two main agers, you can better understand the appropriate way to treat lines vs. wrinkles in order to achieve the ultimate results.
Lines are from repetitive muscle movement. Over time, lines leave slight marks in the skin. However, those who smile, frown or squint more, are prone to having more visible lines. Lines also deepen with age as your skin loses elasticity. Lines are generally located underneath the corners of the eyes, forehead, cheeks, in between eyebrows, or the sides of the mouth.
Wrinkles are more drastic. Wrinkles are thick and dramatic. Any noticeable folds, ridges, or creases in your skin are classified as wrinkles. Wrinkles are primarily caused by age, collagen, and decrease in elasticity, sun damage, medication, and dry skin. Wrinkles are located anywhere on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.
Although lines and wrinkles are not the same, they both become dreadful features over the years. Lines and wrinkles will age you beyond your years if you are not actively trying to prevent them. Obviously, you cannot avoid facial expressions, sunlight and gravity. However, there are a few strides you can make to improve the appearance of lines as well as wrinkles.
- Staying hydrated prevents formations of lines and wrinkles.
- Use sunblock
- Avoid smoking
