Modern cosmetic medicine requires accurate recognition of all types of rhytids and their molecular causes such that treatments may be tailored for improving skin appearance for each unique patient. This article examines the causes and treatment of fine rhytids. Laser rejuvenation therapies that affect the epidermis, dermis or both and induce neocollagenesis and dermal remodeling can be effective against the stigmata of mature skin.
