Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are a common concern for many individuals as we age. The skin begins to lose its elasticity resulting in wrinkling of the skin. 

What Causes Lines and Wrinkles?

Lines and wrinkles can be caused by a number of factors:

  • Age

With age, the skin will gradually become less elastic and more fragile. Decreased production of natural oils can dry your skin and make it appear more wrinkled. Fat decreases in the deeper layers of your skin. This triggers loose, saggy skin and more pronounced lines and crevices.

  • Ultraviolet Light Exposure

Exposure to ultraviolet rays is one of the most prevalent causes of wrinkling. It slowly destroys the collagen and elastin fibres which lie in the dermis layer of the skin. Damaged connective tissue causes the skin to lose strength and elasticity.  

  • Smoking

Smoking may exacerbate the natural ageing process of your skin, leading to wrinkles. This may be due to the impact of smoking on collagen.

  • Facial Contractions

Over time, our common facial expressions such as smiling, cause fine lines and wrinkles. Facial muscle movement results in the formation of grooves beneath the skin. As the skin ages, the loss of collagen and elastin decreases flexibility. As a result, the grooves become permanent on the face.
