WRINKLES, LINES AND FOLDS
WHAT IS IT:
Small creases, furrows and folds on the skin.
Lines and wrinkles have many causes but are often created as a result of defects in the collagen and structure of the skin, or by the overactivity and tension in the underlying muscle connected to the skin.
Folds and wrinkles can also be caused from fat loss or lax skin, when there is too much skin for the underlying tissues and the excess skin therefore drapes downwards into folds.
The best treatment for lines, wrinkles and folds is dependent on accurately identifying their underlying cause and choosing a suitable solution. The face as a whole need to be assessed and factors such as tissue volume loss taken into account.
