Deep lines and wrinkles are often the first noticeable signs of skin ageing, commonly appearing as: Crow’s feet, laughter lines, frown lines, forehead lines, nose-to-mouth lines (nasolabial folds) and lip lines.
Genetics and lifestyle choices can determine the rate at which this condition will develop, with many people starting to see shallow creases emerging around the age of 25 – 30. Collagen and elastin are proteins that exist naturally within the skin.
As we get older these substances will start to diminish from the skin’s structure, causing it to lose its firm, full and youthfully moist appearance. These lines become deeper set and more prominent over time, as skin continues to weaken. Areas that are more exposed to the sun will often be the first places where lines and wrinkles will develop, as UV rays assist in the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
As the amount of collagen & elastin fibres in the dermis decreases as the years pass by, skin becomes less supple, sags & wrinkles appears. This process can be accelerated by sun exposure, ultraviolet radiation. It is responsible for breaking down collagen & elastin fibres within the skin. Smoking is also known to accelerate the aging process due to the reduction of the blood microcirculation.
Facial expressions are the first lines to appear on your face. The facial muscles are active when you smile, get angry and frown your forehead for example. By repeating the same action on the skin surface, lines will start to appear and become permanent wrinkles. Dehydration of the skin is also a consequence of fine lines and wrinkles.
