What are fine lines and what are the best treatments for them?

Fine lines are a natural part of the ageing process and one of the first signs that our skin is losing its elasticity.

As we age, our skin begins to lose collagen and the ability to repair itself as effectively as when we were younger, leading to the formation of fine lines around the more expressive areas of the face where we make repeated movements.

But with treatments tailored to specific areas of concern, it’s possible to soften and even eliminate fine lines before they turn into more deep-set wrinkles.

What are fine lines?

Fine lines are the shallow, small creases that appear on the face as one of the first signs of ageing. They tend to form around the areas where we have the most expression such as the eyes, mouth and forehead.

These lines are superficial, while wrinkles are set deeper in the skin’s surface. Fine lines can eventually become wrinkles as the skin continues to lose its elasticity and fullness.

Fine smile lines

Fine smile lines, also known as crow’s feet, are the lines that become obvious when you smile or laugh. They are easily treated with anti-wrinkle injections. Deeper smile lines require a combination of anti-wrinkle injections and other treatments.

Fine lines under the eyes

The fine lines under the eyes, also known as crepe lines, are caused by a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin which results in thin skin. These very fine lines can be smoothed with Pellevé RF and SkinCeuticals eye serums.

What are the best treatments for fine lines?

There are a range of treatment options for fine lines depending on where and how they form.

Anti-wrinkle injections are the go-to treatment for fine lines that are caused by movement along the dynamic lines of the face.

The injections are safe and effective with no down time, so it’s no surprise they are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the world.

Dermal fillers replace the structural volume that is lost in the face as we age and help to create a more youthful, refreshed visage. Depending on the type of filler used, treatments can also lift and hydrate the skin, with the effect lasting between six months and two years.

Specialist fillers stimulate new collagen production, helping to tighten skin and rebalance facial proportions.

At Bass Coast Skin Doctors, we offer both standard and specialist dermal fillers.

Pellevé RF is a procedure that uses powerful monopolar radiofrequency to gently heat the skin to approximately 40 degrees Celsius, creating instant collagen stimulation and resulting in smoother and tighter skin.

Pellevé is the go-to treatment for fine, crepe skin lines around the eyes and neck, and is a favourite of clients who compare it to the soothing warmth of a hot stone massage.
