What Causes Wrinkles and Fine Lines?
Wrinkles and fine lines 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 get older, our bodies lose elastin and collagen, which 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 a significant factor in the appearance of wrinkles and the aging process.
What Are Some of the Most Common Facial Wrinkles?
As a result of aging skin, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines all eventually develop. Crow’s feet are 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.
With advancements in cosmetic technology, it is now easier than ever to address these fine lines and wrinkles.
