What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles are caused by a combination of repetitive facial movements, sun damage, and the loss of collagen that occurs naturally as we age. Together these factors cause lines and folds to become prominent. As we grow older our bodies lose elastin and collagen. These components play a primary role in helping our skin stay hydrated, firm, and elastic. With repeated facial expressions, it becomes harder and harder for our skin to bounce back to an “expressionless” state. Sun exposure is also a significant factor in the appearance of wrinkles and the aging process.
What are the most common wrinkles, lines, and folds?
As a result of aging, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines eventually develop. The nasolabial folds around your nose and mouth also become more prominent over time as well.
- 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 run both horizontal and vertical along the forehead.
- Frown lines (also known as the “11's”), are the vertical 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 aesthetic technology, it is now easier than ever to address these lines, folds, and wrinkles.
