A practical approach to treating wrinkles
Instead of injecting dermal fillers into the creases of your face, look to new advanced skin care products to help.
Basic care for mature skin
Aging brings about skin changes even before wrinkles become visible. Over time, your face begins to reveal a dull or rough texture, visible pores, blotchiness, age spots and uneven tone.
Cosmetics for the aging face
As your skin ages, you may want to switch to cream or oil-based moisturizers and cosmetics. Cream and oil bases more efficiently retain moisture and restore hydration to the skin.
Facial expressions create wrinkles
Wrinkling of the skin can be caused by a combination of factors, such as habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, and poor hydration.

How skin thickness affects wrinkling ...
We are all thin-skinned…in certain areas! The thickness of our skin varies considerably, depending on its location and the role it plays: it is thinnest on our eyelids and thickest on the palms of our hands and soles of our feet.
Important Filler Facts
By now, many people are aware that hyaluronic acid (Restylane® and Perlane®) and collagen (Cosmoderm® and Cosmoplast®) can be used to fill creases, wrinkles and scars on the face and neck, in both men and women, and can also be used to enhance the fullness of the lips.

Preparing For the Big Day
Everyone -- guests and those who will be in the public eye -- wants their skin to look its best on their big day. Here are some simple tips you can follow to help avoid skin problems on your special day:
Preventing and Treating Lines and Wrinkles
As a part of the aging process, our facial skin begins to droop, forming lines, furrows, and wrinkles. Simple physics plays a large role, with extended usage of muscles and gravity playing a large role in natural aging, creating folds in the skin over time. Common muscle movements or patterns such as sleeping on one side consistently over the years can have an effect. Additionally, overexposure to the sun, or smoking can accelerate this process due to skin damage.
Skin changes associated with menopause
The start of menopause also signals changes for your skin. The drop in estrogen results in the loss of skin elasticity and reduced collagen production (causing the skin to appear "looser"), which leads to drier skin and increased wrinkles.
Smooth over your wrinkles ...
With the recent advances in cosmetics, caring for mature skin has never been easier. A great way to achieve a smoother complexion is to apply a liquid foundation over clean skin before putting on the rest of your makeup. Several products have moisturizers added and the anti-aging effects can last all day.
Steps to wrinkle reduction
There are a number of options to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. First of all, protect yourself from further unnecessary or pro-longed sun exposure and apply sunscreen daily.
The difference in wrinkles
Wrinkles on the skin are divided into those produced by movement of the skin and underlying muscles, and those that are present when the skin of the face is at rest.
The wrinkle in smoking ...
One of the effects of smoking on the skin is premature aging. Smoking causes narrowing of the blood vessels in the top layers of your skin. When blood flow to the skin becomes impaired, it results in oxygen depletion and deprivation of vital nutrients.
Treating Wrinkles
Did you know there are two kinds of wrinkles? Wrinkles on the skin are divided into those produced by movement of the skin and those that are present when the skin of the face is at rest. Moisturizers can only work by minimizing the appearance of fine lines in skin at rest that are caused by dehydration of the skin.
Want to improve the look of lines around your eyes?
You can minimize the likelihood of developing wrinkles around your eyes by applying sunscreen (but remember, not too close to the eyes) and wearing protective eyewear, such as wrap-around sunglasses.
What causes wrinkles?
Most often, they are produced by years of unprotected sun exposure in combination with each persons unique genetic predisposition.
When collagen decreases ...
As we age, the amount of collagen in our skin decreases, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and other changes that make us look older. Women have less collagen than men to begin with.
Year-round care for your lips
Take care of the area around your lips with sunscreens and moisturizers. Wrinkles above your lips are not just caused by smoking.
Your facial expressions cause wrinkles
Wrinkles tend to conform to our most dominant facial expressions. If you tend to frown or scowl, you can expect to see a furrowed brow, down-turning lines at the mouth, or wrinkles between your eyes.
