Fine Lines and Wrinkles

With modern therapies, you can prevent wrinkles starting in your 30's. Discover the best therapies for treating or preventing these fine lines and wrinkles.

Did you know that you start losing around 1 percent of your body’s collagen every year after the age of 25? Once that starts to happen, your skin will get thinner and thinner until it starts to become saggy and wrinkles start to form. Many people are afraid of developing fine lines and wrinkles and will do anything to prevent them.

While completely preventing wrinkles is not possible, there are still quite a few things you can do to prolong their development and make them much less noticeable. Take a look below to discover how wrinkles and fine lines work and learn about what you can do to address them. 

Which factors can contribute to fine lines and wrinkles?

You might be wondering why wrinkles form in the first place. For one, as mentioned before, it has to do with the natural loss of collagen from your body. There isn’t much you can do about this since this is simply the way the body ages. While collagen supplements can help, they won’t completely reverse this aging process. 

Besides the loss of collagen, there are other things that can make your skin age faster than usual. In particular, sun exposure without the use of sunscreen can certainly make your skin age faster than usual. This is due to the way the sun’s harmful rays destroy skin cells on a molecular level. 

This can cause premature wrinkles as well as sun spots and general discoloration. Certain habits like smoking cigarettes can also cause you to develop wrinkles early on, especially around your mouth. 

Improper skin care may also contribute to early wrinkle development. For example, if you are harsh with your skin and use cleansers or products that contain harmful chemicals, this may damage your skin and make it age faster. This is also true if you avoid ingredients that are healthy for your skin, such as vitamin C or moisturizer. 

When should you worry about fine lines and wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles can start forming as early as the age of 25. Again, this is when you start to use a small percentage of your collagen every year. Collagen is important for youthful and healthy skin for a variety of reasons. 

Most importantly, collagen acts as the scaffolding for your skin cells. Young people have a lot of collagen, which is why teenagers and those in their early 20’s have very firm and plump skin. However, as we age and we start to lose some of that collagen, our skin cells will become weaker and less elastic. 

As a result, the skin will start to look older and less plump. You can see this in elderly people, who tend to have very thin skin that breaks easily and develops wrinkles. By age 25, you will start to develop fine lines rather than wrinkles. 

However, those fine lines can soon turn into wrinkles if you don’t treat them early on. For that reason, it is important to take certain precautions with your skin and to try certain treatments in your early 30’s. As long as you do that, you should be able to keep these fine lines from getting any worse for quite a long time. 

As a result, you will be able to hold onto your youthful complexion for a longer period than usual. Fortunately, there are many treatment options you can choose from to not only prevent wrinkles but also treat existing wrinkles as well.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are unique in that they consist of substances like hyaluronic acid that are designed to fill in wrinkles and fine lines.
Injecting a filler or biostimulator such as Restylane, Sculptra, and Versa into fine lines can plump them up and make them far less noticeable. Often, fillers are also injected into the cheekbones or jawline addressing the real reason many of those wrinkles appear in the first place-volume loss.

Chemical Peel

These peels work by removing the top layer of skin, which is often where these imperfections are located.
By gently and painlessly removing the top layer of skin, a fresh layer of skin is revealed, which is smoother, brighter, and more youthful looking.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

As the production of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone decreases, you may observe the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. Hormone replacement therapy can help increase levels of these hormones and potentially improve skin elasticity, moisture, and texture.
HRT is a medical treatment used to supplement or replace hormones that the body no longer produces in sufficient amounts. HRT has been used for decades to alleviate symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, but it also has potential benefits for skin aging.
