WRINKLES

Wrinkles are the fine lines and creases visible on the face and neck which usually appear as you age. These lines may also develop over time from excessive exposure to the sun, spending lots of time in the water, smoking, dehydration or some medication. Genetic factors also play a role in the result of wrinkles and are sometimes out of our control unless treated early.

TYPES OF WRINKLES:

 Dynamic expression lines are temporarily formed when while making facial expressions but may however, become permanent static wrinkles over time. Overexposure to the sun and poor lifestyle habits such as smoking can accelerate this process.

Elastic creases are the small lines that often form on the cheeks, upper lip and neck. Elastic creases are the result of years of exposure to the sun, air pollution and cigarette smoke. To reduce the formation of this type of wrinkle, always use sunscreen and avoid smoking.

Compression wrinkles occur when your face is compression or squished into the surface of your pillow, leaving behind lines that make fade throughout the day or become permanent.

Gravitational folds are part of the natural aging process; the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin begins to decline, resulting in sagging skin.

Atrophic wrinkles are lines formed with the gradual breakdown collagen and elasticity in the skin, and can worsen with sun exposure.
