What Are Fine Lines & Wrinkles? How Can I Prevent Them?

No matter how good your skincare routine is, fine lines and wrinkles are something we all have to deal with. As we get older, the body naturally begins to produce less collagen and elastin, reducing the elasticity of the skin and preventing it from ‘bouncing back’ the way it might once have.

However, all hope is not lost. Innovative treatments that target the subdermal layer of the skin — like the Morpheus8 — are proving to be incredibly effective, not least for their non-invasive nature and short recovery times.

If your patients are concerned about the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on their face and body or are looking to get a jump start on these issues before they’re too evident, InMode’s suite of technologies can assist. Continue reading to learn more.

What Are Fine Lines & Wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles are common signs of aging and can appear on the face and the rest of the body. Fine lines are shallow, small lines that form in areas of facial movement, such as around the eyes or mouth, while wrinkles are deeper and more pronounced lines that develop as the skin loses its firmness and elasticity. 

The two are caused by a combination of factors, including the natural aging process, sun exposure, loss of skin elasticity, and decreased production of collagen and elastin. 

Collagen and elastin are proteins that play vital roles in maintaining the health and appearance of the skin. Collagen provides structural support, strength, and firmness to the skin, while elastin allows the skin to stretch and bounce back, helping it retain its youthful appearance. 

Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging. However, taking care of the skin and exploring appropriate treatments can help minimise their appearance and promote healthier-looking skin. 

How to Prevent Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Preventing fine lines and wrinkles requires a comprehensive approach that combines protective measures, a healthy lifestyle, and an effective skincare routine. Shielding the skin from the sun's harmful rays and adopting a well-balanced diet, proper hydration, sufficient sleep, and stress management are vital components in promoting skin health and resilience. Establishing a consistent skincare routine with gentle cleansing, moisturising, and using products containing beneficial ingredients can further support the prevention and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, specific cosmetic procedures can be used to prevent and treat the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Morpheus8, for example, is an innovative device that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, helping to minimise the appearance of fine lines and impeding their future development.

Treatment Options for Fine Lines & Wrinkles With InMode

Are your patients looking for non and minimally invasive ways to reduce the formation of fine lines and wrinkles? Here’s a great place to start.

Forma & Plus

The Forma and Plus handpieces work hand-in-hand to provide non-invasive skin and tissue rejuvenation across the face and body.

Plus is a dermal and sub-dermal heating technology that utilises RF (radiofrequency) energy to promote the development of collagen and improve the skin’s elasticity. Equipped with several safety features, it can provide treatment in only 30–45 minutes for ultimate comfort and convenience.

The Forma handpiece operates using similar technology and features built-in temperature controls to help provide a safe, uniform treatment experience. The volumetric heating reaches up to 5mm to effectively target the Fibro Septal Network, resulting in impressive and consistent results.


With its groundbreaking technology, Morpheus8 is one of the most popular devices in the InMode portfolio.

Morpheus8 combines two potent technologies — microneedling and RF energy to remodel collagen and subdermal adipose tissue on the face and body, reducing the need for invasive surgery that involves a significant recovery time.

Clinicians love Morpheus8 for several reasons, not least the fact that it can be completely customised depending on the needs of the patient. Featuring four fractional tips with different microneedle configurations, it has the capacity to deliver the deepest fractional treatments available.

Plus, it is safe to use on skin types up to VI with little risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, meaning you can offer treatment to a wider variety of patients.
