Fine Lines Q & A

What are fine lines?

The words “fine lines” and “wrinkles” are often used interchangeably, but they are different things. Fine lines develop when your skin begins to fold or crease and cannot bounce back. 

They often appear in areas of your face that move during speech or when you make facial expressions. Fine lines occur in the skin around your mouth and eyes, which is thinner than the skin on other parts of your body. They measure less than two millimeters deep and can be the very first signs of aging to develop.

Wrinkles are deeper than fine lines, although fine lines can eventually develop into wrinkles.

What causes or worsens fine lines?

Many different factors contribute to fine lines. Some of the more common culprits include:

  • Genetics
  • Sun exposure
  • Smoking
  • Dry skin
  • Sleeping on your side or stomach

People with fair skin often develop fine lines earlier than those with darker skin tones. 

What can be done to treat fine lines?

Treating fine lines in the early stages can help maintain a youthful and well-rested appearance. Embracing a skincare routine using high-quality products is a great place to start, as is wearing sunscreen every day to protect your skin from UV exposure. 

Once fine lines develop, TempSure™ Envi can help lessen their appearance. This treatment uses radiofrequency energy to prompt your body to produce new collagen and elastin cells. Those new cells are densely packed and plump your skin. 

Additional facial volume smooths and tightens your skin, reducing the depth of fine lines and giving you a more rounded facial profile. If your fine lines are not very pronounced, you might only need one or two sessions to achieve optimal results. 

TempSure Envi treatments are painless. The radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production by creating heat in the deeper layers of your skin, but there is no damage to the outermost layers. Sessions require no anesthesia and no downtime, so you can get back into the swing of your day immediately after your 20-40 minute session.
