Lax skin, sagging skin, or wrinkles – whatever you call it, it can make you look older than you feel, especially if it’s on your face or neck. As you age, your skin loses some of its elasticity and can begin to sag, droop, and form wrinkles. But aging is not the only factor. Sun damage, smoking, and a very expressive face can also cause wrinkles and fine lines.
What Causes Wrinkles?
What causes wrinkles may depend on where on your body they are appearing. There are two kinds of wrinkles: dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles correspond to repeated facial muscle movement. When you smile, frown, laugh or squint, eventually wrinkles form for everyone. Smokers can develop wrinkles around their lips from the repeated pursing of the lips.
Static wrinkles are more common as we age, and are caused by a loss of elastin and collagen production. As a result, your skin becomes thinner and drier and can start to sag. Many face wrinkles and neck wrinkles are static wrinkles.
If you’re bothered by the appearance of either type of wrinkle, we can help.

The result is smoother, younger-looking skin. Just 4 microneedling sessions separated at one month apart can boost collagen production by up to 400%!
