Wrinkles, Fine Lines and Pores AT DERMACARE SAN DIEGO

Wrinkles and fine lines are some of the most common concerns patients experience as a result of age. Over time, the body produces less of the ingredients required to maintain healthy and youthful skin, including collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. As a result, the face tends to lose its texture, moisture, volume and elasticity, and wrinkles and lines begin to form. Combined with years of repetitive facial expressions and movements, these effects can produce a prematurely aged and worn appearance.

At Dermacare in San Diego, we offer a range of minimally invasive treatments to help patients soften existing creases and prevent further lines from developing. Depending on your age, current condition and aesthetic goals, our skin specialists can determine the most suitable treatment to help you minimize the signs of aging and restore a healthier, more radiant complexion.

What are Static and Dynamic Wrinkles?

Dynamic wrinkles appear when you express emotion such as worry, fear, joy or surprise. They become noticeable when you smile, laugh, cry, frown or during moments of deep concentration. These lines disappear when your face is relaxed, as the facial muscles triggered by expression are inactive. Common examples of dynamic wrinkles include frown lines, forehead wrinkles, smile lines and crow’s feet.

Static wrinkles refer to lines that remain even when the face is relaxed. These creases typically begin as dynamic wrinkles and tend to deepen as a result of age, sun exposure and gravity. They are a source of concern and frustration for many patients, as they can often make you look older than your years. Examples of static wrinkles include lines at the corners of the mouth (lip lines), across the cheeks and along the neck.
