Fine lines and wrinkles are common and natural — everyone develops wrinkles because of the natural aging process. However, if you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of fine lines on your skin, you can delay the onset of wrinkles and maintain youthful skin. At Living Young Center, we use numerous techniques to fill out the fine lines and folds, suppress the dynamic wrinkles, and improve your overall skin texture, making you look and feel youthful and revitalized.

Fine Lines & Wrinkles: Causes
Fine lines and wrinkles gradually appear on your skin’s surface as you grow older. The onset of wrinkles depends on numerous factors, such as how often you produce facial expressions, the degree of sun exposure, genetic factors, and more. Our cosmetic providers curate personalized treatment plans based on your type of wrinkles — static wrinkles or dynamic wrinkles.
Static wrinkles, also known as fine lines, are the lines, folds, and wrinkles that appear on your face because of aging and sun exposure. Static wrinkles aren’t dependent on your facial expressions, and they appear because of the gradual loss of elastin, hyaluronic acid, and collagen from your skin. Static wrinkles remain on your skin’s surface at all times.
Dynamic wrinkles appear on your face because of the overuse of certain facial expressions, such as laughing and frowning. When you laugh, smile, or frown, you develop certain expression lines, such as crow’s feet and laugh lines. As you grow older, these facial lines remain etched on your skin even at rest, i.e., when you’re not conveying expressions.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles: Treatment Options
Wrinkle relaxers, also known as neuromodulators, are suitable for clients with dynamic wrinkles. Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are botulinum injections that temporarily paralyze the facial muscles responsible for your facial expressions, thus smoothing away the associated wrinkles.
Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, Belotero, and Restylane, can fill out unwanted fine lines, static wrinkles, and nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring gel that makes your skin look soft, supple, smooth, and youthful.
IPL photofacial is a non-invasive treatment wherein highly-calibrated wavelengths of light energy are channeled into your skin. Light energy catalyzes collagen production, making your skin look firm, taut, and youthful. IPL photofacial produces long-lasting and naturalized results.
Microneedling involves making numerous micro-channels on the skin’s surface using a specialized microneedling device. This technique activates your body’s natural collagen production capabilities to fill out the fine lines and reverse the signs of aging.
HydraFacial is a unique skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the exfoliation of your skin’s surface, followed by the infusion of special skincare formulations, such as vitamins, minerals, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. HydraFacial makes your skin look smoother and younger.
Chemical peels are unique skincare formulations that scrub away the uppermost layers of the skin while activating collagen production. Your body gradually produces new collagen fibers to reverse the signs of aging, smoothen wrinkles, and make your skin look taut.
