Aging is an inevitable part of life, and the ravages of time can take a toll on your appearance. Our skin is the first line of defense against the elements, and it is on our faces that the signs of aging can be the most prominent. Wrinkles, lines, sun spots and all kinds of facial blemishes can give off an older and more tired appearance despite how youthful we may feel.
There are many kinds of wrinkles that appear on all parts of the face. Some are a result of a loss of skin elasticity, where others are more directly formed by repeated facial movement. In the forehead and eyebrow area, there are worry lines that appear as creases. When you furrow your eyes, glabellar lines form in the area between the eyes. Periorbital lines, or crow’s feet, develop on the edge of your eyes. Below the eyes, tear troughs and bags can give off a sleepy, aloof appearance.
There are many kinds of lines and wrinkles, but luckily there are many kinds of treatments. Facial injections, skin rejuvenation and lifts are effective for different kinds of signs of aging. Consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Tuesday Bigelow if you would like to know more about how you can treat wrinkles.
