The Causes of Wrinkles: Damage occurs to the collagen and elastin fibers in the reticular dermis over time. Expression lines are cause by a gradual "denting" of these fibers from repeated facial movement. Just like a piece of metal that is bent multiple times, the fibers become weaker and thinner in the area of the constant bend. Little by little, these fibers are damaged until they cannot function in their intended capacity.

Addressing Already Developed Wrinkles: There are other ways to address these damaged fibers and restore their function. Hydradermabrasion, aka HydraFacial, is the term coined for the procedure that combines crystal-free microdermabrasion using an abrading tip with the pneumatic application of an antioxidant-rich serum, representsing another step in the evolution of microdermabrasion technology. In a clinical study, the patients experienced a replacement of elastic dermal tissue, collagen hyalinization, and increased fibroblast density after treatment. Fine lines, pore size, and hyperpigmentation were decreased following treatment and there were no reported complications.
