We spend our lives getting accustomed to seeing a certain face when we look in the mirror. The aging process completely disrupts our expectations. Instead of seeing smooth skin each day, wrinkles and fine lines start creeping in around the eyes, mouth, and forehead. Our faces sag slightly, and our appearances begin to change. While gradual aging is inevitable, premature aging is frustrating and confidence-sapping. But facial lines don’t have to mar your complexion – gentle rejuvenation is possible, and with a treatment option that suits your needs.
Why Does Skin Wrinkle?
Why do you have wrinkles in the first place? The answer is a little different for everyone.
Sun exposure – Sun damage causes a significant part of our physical aging. Sun exposure leads to the formation of brown spots, red spots, wrinkles, and other textural flaws. The UV rays in sunlight hasten the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which support firm skin.
- Genetics – We inherit some of our aging factors from our parents, with our skin reacting to the passing of time in similar ways.
- Weight loss – Significant weight loss can lead to sagging or loose skin, with wrinkles more likely. The fat in the cheeks and lips also thins as we age.
- Repetitive muscle contractions – Of course, our facial muscles are necessary and making facial expressions is a significant part of communication. But some frowns and puckers are more damaging. If you tend to frown when concentrating, if you smoke, or if you squint, you’re more likely to see fine to deep lines in the active areas.
