What's the difference between fine lines and wrinkles?

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

We often hear wrinkles and fine lines being mentioned together, but are they the same thing?

The main difference between fine lines and wrinkles is depth. Wrinkles are folds in the skin measuring 3mm or over. Anything less than that are fine lines. Fine lines are often caused by lax skin and are associated with the earliest signs of ageing or sun damage.
Wrinkles are more complex and are predominately caused by muscle contractions under the skin such as smiling, squinting or frowning. Repeated facial muscle movements, contracting and releasing in the same way over the years creates folds along the habitual lines.

But did you know there is more than one type of wrinkle? Dynamic and Static.

Dynamic wrinkles occur during the muscle movement. If there is a wrinkle during the muscle movement but nothing once the movement is over, you have a dynamic wrinkle. These help to show emotion and expression - nothing to necessarily worry about, but over time these can develop into static wrinkles.
Static wrinkles remain on the skin even after the muscle movement is over. These often develop from dynamic wrinkles over time. Anti-wrinkle injections can be administered to relax these wrinkles yet still allow you to show emotion and expression, avoiding the 'frozen' look.
If you're not sure which category you fall into, don't worry - we have a number of treatments to combat fine lines and both types of wrinkles. Come into the clinic for a consultation and see how we can help you.

Design Your Face DYF

It’s a called a ‘Designer Face’ because we can actually design, change and enhance facial features non- surgically! Advanced Medical science has given us this ability as Cosmetic Injectors with a unique artistic eye. It is not just for the rich and famous….it’s for everyone who wants to bring out the beauty in their face. Some people are born with natural symmetry; others come to Face Today to have their facial features tweaked with a cosmetic artist to help restore and re-balance their natural beauty.

Beauty is a balance of facial features, so when we use the term ‘Designer Face’ it is recognising which features need to be balanced and enhanced or redesigned. It all begins with the skull; this is the foundation of your beauty. Facial features such as cheek bones can be enhanced to give lift and height to the cheeks which can resemble the fabulous cheeks belonging to likes of Kim Kardasian or we can create the famous ‘Angelina Jaw angle’. We can redesign the angles of your nose non- surgically. At Face Today we can basically redefine, reshape whatever annoys you about your face to help you achieve and restores the balance.

Can anyone have one?
Almost everyone can benefit from balancing the symmetry of their facial features. The decision to change or enhance the facial features is a personal choice. Face Today delivers a very subtle result that it is natural and difficult to detect except for the fact that the person looks fabulous!  We can turn you from “Pretty to Princess”.

Is it achievable for all patients?
Absolutely! We see the beauty in every face and build and expand upon it.

Will I look like someone else or just a better me?
Definitely a better you! Everyone has a different combination of facial features and so it is impossible to look like anyone else other than a fresher more beautiful or handsome you.

How long does it take to achieve?
It’s a journey! With medical science and the tools that we have, you will look fresher, possibly “younger” than when you first came to Face Today. As each year goes by, you can look better and fresher…it’s your choice……aging gracefully is exactly what we aim to achieve.

Is it affordable?

It is an individual journey and so we design the treatment plan to suit budgets and expectations.
