We tend to assume most of our facial lines and wrinkles come from expressions.  Hence, the so called “smoker’s lines” around the mouth, “crow’s feet” around the eyes, and “bunny lines” around the nose.  While it is true many lines on the face are formed as a result of repeated facial movements, often patients will come to our office concerned about a line that doesn’t follow along the path of a muscle.

Our eyes, nose and jawbone/chin area all work together to create the impression … Continue reading

How to Increase Collagen Production for Younger-Looking Skin

A protein called collagen is a part of our bones, tendons and skin. It maintains strength and elasticity. Unfortunately, as we age, our collagen begins to break down, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. You can see this in smile lines, the forehead and around the eyes. In fact, by the time you are 80, you’ll have 4 times the broken collagen that you had in your 20’s. Aging releases enzymes that cause the breakdown of collagen fibers.
