A depletion of the skin’s natural elasticity causes the skin to become fragile. Paired with a reduction in natural oil and collagen production leading to a decrease in fullness and resilience, that results in wrinkling, creeping and creasing.

Wrinkling and Aging

Causes for wrinkling and aging

Exposure to ultraviolet light is also a factor that contributes to the degradation of skin cells leading to pronounced wrinkles and crevices. Frequent and prolonged sun exposure destroys collagen and elastin fibers  leaving spots, discoloration and hyperpigmentation marks on the face. UV light exposure is also a leading cause of skin cancer.

Smoking is another contributor to facial wrinkling. The harmful chemicals can prevent the body’s ability to regenerate cells and tissue leading to premature aging of the skin.

The Repetitive movement face squinting, smiling, laughing and frowning can also leave lines and wrinkles. That is why lines near the eyes and mouth are often referred to as “smile lines” or “laugh lines” and lines in the middle of the forehead between the brow are called worry lines.

Wrinkle Prevention

While aging is inevitable, there are ways to slow the hands of time and its effects on your skin. Protect your skin from sun exposure year round. Use a strong SPF as part of your daily skin care routine and cover up delicate skin when spending time outdoors. Wide brimmed hats  and quality sunglasses are great investments for vacations and hot summer days to help keep harmful rays away from your face.

Keeping skin hydrated inside and out can also slow the aging process. Using a moisturizer to lock water in your skin cells keeping tissue plump and full. Drinking lots of water keeps you hydrated internally which ensures tissue can regenerate and stay healthy.

Eating a well-balanced nutrient rich diet also promotes healthy cell and tissue development and prevents the effects of aging.

Lastly, quitting smoking is one of the best ways to combat the signs of aging if you are a smoker.

Crows Feet

The small wrinkles on the outer corner of the eye are called crow’s feet due to their resemblance to the foot of a bird. Crow’s Feet are often the first visible signs of aging we see on our face.

Causes for Crows Feet

There are a lot of factors that contribute to emergence of Crow’s Feet, primarily the movement of our face. As we laugh, talk, smile and eat can cause these fine lines to appear. The repetitive movements stretch the skin and over time some of the elasticity is lost resulting in Crow’s Feet.

Aging is also a contributing factor to fine lines on the face. Older cells are less regenerative and produce less collagen, a vital protein for skin health and youthfulness. A reduction in collagen results in a loss of fullness in the tissue structure leaving skin less resilient and more susceptible to developing wrinkles.

Under eye wrinkles are a direct cause of the depletion of collagen production in the eye area. Over time the tissue around the becomes less firm as the inner skin matrix loses elasticity and its ability regenerate quickly.

There are also external factors that can promote the development of Laughter Lines and wrinkles. Such as exposure to UV rays, unhealthy diet and not enough water intake. Lack of exercise and smoking can also contribute to appearance of natural eye wrinkles.

Preventing and treating Crow’s Feet

Wrinkles will eventually develop as we age, unfortunately some people develop them earlier than other and are self-conscious or displeased by the appearance of eye wrinkles. Preventing or delaying the emergence of fine lines is challenging but proper skin care with moisturizer and sunscreen, avoidance of sun exposure and a healthy diet can reduce the significance of facial wrinkles.

Drinking lots of water can keep delicate skin cells hydrated and plump, preventing the depletion of tissue and the formation of wrinkles.

Deep Wrinkles

Although deep wrinkles are an expected part of aging, you do not have to simply accept the change in your face and appearance. No matter how pronounced your wrinkles, AMALIAN makes a line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for you.

Causes for Deep Wrinkles

Deep wrinkles are not only the result of aging but also the product of progression of soft folds, fine lines, and more shallow wrinkles. Without treatment or effective skincare, these mild aesthetic problems will inevitably change to deeper, severe wrinkles.

Dry skin often goes hand-in-hand with deep wrinkles, but these wrinkles are not the outcome of dryness alone. Wrinkles form because the skin proteins collagen and elastin begin to breakdown. Sun exposure, stress, pollution, and other factors all contribute to collagen and elastin degradation. Eventually, your skin loses the ability to adequately replace these lost structural proteins.

Deep Wrinkle Treatment

With dermal fillers, you can avoid invasive cosmetic surgery and give your skin the hydration and volume it needs. Even skin with deep wrinkles can look youthful and well-hydrated.

Fortunately, effective treatment to reverse the appearance of deep wrinkles exists. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers by AMALIAN can immediately provide a dramatic reduction in wrinkle number and severity. Some people believe that dermal fillers are only for mild lines and lip augmentation, but the truth is that there are certain hyaluronic acid fillers available for even intense wrinkles and other profound aesthetic issues.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by your body for a variety of purposes. These effects include skin hydration and volume. AMALIAN dermal fillers give skin a youthful look without an artificial appearance as well as provide necessary hydration and firmness. The results can easily last for a year or longer.

Specifically, the AMALIAN II LT Intense line is often perfect for deep facial wrinkles. Also, the AMALIAN III Expert Volume line can provide outstanding results for patients with profound wrinkles, along with pockmarks or acne scarring. Consult with your aesthetician about the best options for your treatment.

Fine to Medium Lines

The arrival of fine to medium lines can be distressing, but they are an expected part of aging. Read below for information on the causes of these lines and what you can do about the problem.

Causes for Fine Lines

Fine to medium lines, also known as fine to medium wrinkles, are extremely common aesthetic complaints. As people age, everyone eventually encounters these lines, particularly on the face. While fine to medium lines often follow normal skin fold patterns. Around the nose and mouth, for example. They can also appear in areas without natural skin folds, such as the cheeks and chin.

Fine to medium lines are often the predecessor to deeper lines and wrinkles. Over time, these fine lines can multiply and deepen to create more pronounced signs of aging. Dry skin issues often accompany fine lines and deeper wrinkles.

Sunlight exposure is the primary cause of fine lines and wrinkles. Ultraviolet (UV) light contributes to the breakdown of two critical proteins in the skin: elastin and collagen. Elastin gives skin its elasticity and plasticity. In other words, it allows the skin to return to its normal shape after movement. Facial expressions and even activities like chewing and speaking shift the skin out of position. Elastin permits the skin to “bounce back” to its typical configuration without leaving lines or wrinkles.

Collagen is a structural protein and is one of the building blocks for skin mass. As part of connective tissue, collagen provides skin with bulk and volume. Collagen breakdown is one of the reasons why older people sometimes appear to have a gaunt or thin appearance to their faces.

In addition to UV light exposure from the sun or tanning beds, environmental pollution, poor diet, stress, and medical conditions can all play a role in forming fine lines and wrinkles. Wearing sunblock, limiting your sun exposure, moisturizing your skin, and staying healthy can help prevent lines and wrinkles.

How to Treat Fine to Medium Lines

Dermal fillers are one of the best and most effective ways of treating fine to medium lines. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a non-surgical method of providing a much-needed compound to combat lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that helps your skin retain moisture and volume, giving it a youthful and full appearance. The effects of these dermal fillers can last many months, and the fillers are safe and degrade naturally in your body.

Various types of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are available for multiple aesthetic concerns. In general, fine to medium lines respond very well to treatment with high-quality dermal fillers.

Marionette Folds and Lines

Causes for Marionette Folds and Lines

Marionette lines form from natural skin folds that exist around the mouth. These wrinkles become more pronounced and visible with age. Unfortunately, marionette lines can give your face an angry or unfriendly appearance. Even if you are actually happy. As a result, the elimination of marionette lines becomes a priority for many patients, not only for a youthful look but also a friendly one.

Gravity is the main culprit for marionette folds. Over the decades, gravity gradually pulls the skin on your face downward. This downward tug eventually leads to permanent skin folds and lines that will not disappear on their own.

Of course, age is also a significant factor in the formation of marionette lines. As the skin ages, elastin begins to break down, and the body does not replace this protein in adequate amounts. Elastin gives skin its resilience and plasticity. Without sufficient elastin, skin does not return to its typical position, resulting in wrinkles and folds.

How to Treat Marionette Folds and Lines

Patients have several options to reduce or eliminate marionette folds and lines. The possibilities include chemical peels, laser skin treatments, surgical procedures, Botulinum Toxin injections, and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Among the surgical procedures are thread lifts, where the skin in the mouth and chin area is lifted using a thread. Facelifts are also an option for marionette line treatment.

However, many patients elect to use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers due to the lasting, excellent results without surgery. Injectable dermal fillers can do an outstanding job of filling out the face without causing puffiness or swelling. Results are immediate and endure for many months. AMALIAN dermal fillers also provide crucial skin hydration with certified purity and no animal products.

Soft Wrinkles

As aging occurs, these lines begin to become permanent. Youthful skin shows few lines when the face is in a neutral expression. However, as the skin ages, these lines are always present. Even when not smiling or making expressions.

Soft Wrinkle Causes

You may not hear the term “soft wrinkles” often, but this type of wrinkle is an important concept in facial beauty and aesthetics. Soft wrinkles are pronounced skin folds, the areas where the skin naturally creases on the face. Examples include the nasolabial lines around the mouth. As well as the glabella lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows.

Dry skin, exposure to sunlight and other ultraviolet light, air pollution and health problems. All of these contribute to the increase of soft wrinkles. These factors break down the structural proteins of the skin, elastin and collagen. When these proteins are reduced or eliminated. The skin loses its ability to return to its neutral configuration. The lines formed by expressions such as raised eyebrows, smiling and frowning become permanently etched in the face.

These lines include crow’s feet, laugh lines, marionette lines, and more. Of course, this process is not instantaneous. Soft wrinkles can become apparent even in young adults or teenagers. Eventually, these soft wrinkles will progress to deeper wrinkles without treatment. Especially without a skincare regiment. Skin sagging occurs in later stages when elasticity is profoundly reduced.

How to Treat Soft Wrinkles

Since soft wrinkles are usually mild, they respond well to treatments that provide extra hydration and volume. AMALIAN hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are ideally suited for the resolution of soft wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound in the body that assists in skin hydration and an attractive appearance.

Several lines of AMALIAN dermal fillers may fit your condition. Your aesthetician can help you choose the most appropriate dermal filler for your situation. Treatment requires no surgery and all AMALIAN hyaluronic acid fillers are pure, sterile, and contain no animal products. Results can easily last for many months before retreatment is needed. AMALIAN fillers are a safe, effective, and non-surgical way to reduce or even eliminate soft wrinkles.

Thin Lips

Lips like the rest of our face are prone to developing the signs of aging.

Causes for Thin Lips

Lips start to thin with age  because the natural collagen and hyaluronic acid production declines. These key building blocks to skin health keep lips plump and moist from the inside out.

A decrease in collagen production usually begins in our late 20s and early 30s, but the effects may be visible at a younger age if your lips were always thin. Repetitive movement like puckering or drinking from a straw can speed up the breakdown of collagen leading to thinning lips.

Dehydration can also leave lips parched and chapped contributing to early aging. Prolonged sun exposure is also a known cause of cell degradation leading to wrinkles, fine lines, spots and aging.

Thin Lip Treatments

Protecting the delicate skin of the lips from UV rays with an SPF lip balm can help keep lips full and plump. Drinking lots of water and eating a nutrient dense diet can help cells stay healthy and resilient preventing the early signs of aging.

Under Eye Wrinkles Conditions
