As with most people, I smile many times throughout the day, too many to count. Although it is a sign of happiness, we may not be the most happy when we see the fine lines and wrinkles that our smiles may reveal- especially around our eyes. Not to worry, there are many options for treating those pesky lines as well as preventing them.
Difference between Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Before we know which route is best it may help to know the difference between fine lines and wrinkles. Fine lines are lines that may be caused by the movement of facial muscles when smiling or frowning. They can also be created due to a lack of moisture in the skin. Fine lines are usually not seen while the face is at rest, a wrinkle usually is.
A wrinkle is deeper than a fine line and can be caused by the natural process of ageing, as well as exposure to environmental factors or repetitive facial movements such as smiling, frowning or squinting.
