What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles are caused by a combination of repetitive facial movements, sun damage and the loss of collagen. Together these factors create the environment for lines and folds to become more prominent. As we grow older, our bodies lose elastin and collagen, which function is to keep our skin hydrated, firm and elastic. With repeated facial expressions over time, it becomes harder and harder for our skin to bounce back to an “expressionless” state. Sun exposure is also a major factor in the appearance of wrinkles and the aging process.
What are the most common wrinkles, lines and folds?
As a result of aging skin, crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines will eventually develop. The nasolabial folds also become more prominent over time
- Crow’s feet are the name for the lines around the outer corner of the eyes. Squinting in the sun can cause and worsen these lines.
- Forehead lines can be both horizontal and vertical on the forehead.
- Frown lines (also known as the “11s”), are the lines that form between the eyebrows.
- The nasolabial folds(also known as smile or laugh lines) are the deep creases that run from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
With advancements in cosmetic technology, it is now easier than ever to address these lines, folds and wrinkles.
