What are wrinkles?
From the moment we spot that first crease in the fabric of our skin, we watch as every laugh, wink, and furrowed brow etches a story on our face and body. While we embrace the tales they tell, wrinkles can also make us look tired and drawn. Fortunately, modern aesthetic medicine offers effective treatments to address these little lines that age us beyond our years; from forehead wrinkles and under eye wrinkles to those that develop on the chest, and neck – there’s no reason we can’t look as young as we feel.
What causes wrinkles?
Over time, damage from sun exposure, lifestyle factors and the natural aging process accumulates and our skin structures give way to permanent wrinkles, lines and folds. Just like a fingerprint, each of these wrinkles is unique. Some, like forehead wrinkles or under eye wrinkles, are caused or aggravated by repeated facial movements (we call these dynamic wrinkles), while others are always present, even at rest (we call these static wrinkles). As the supportive collagen and elastin networks that once kept our skin taut and firm begin to degrade, and our adipose (fat) and muscle tissue shrinks, the skin becomes loose and more static wrinkles form. Wherever these fine lines and wrinkles appear, the skin’s surface loses its once youthful, smooth texture.
