What causes Wrinkling and Aging?
A depletion of the skin’s natural elasticity causes the skin to become fragile, paired with a reduction in natural oil and collagen production leading to a decrease in fullness and resilience, that results in wrinkling, creping and creasing.
Exposure to ultraviolet light is also a factor that contributes to the degradation of skin cells leading to pronounced wrinkles and crevices. Frequent and prolonged sun exposure destroys collagen and elastin fibers leaving spots, discoloration and hyperpigmentation marks on the face. UV light exposure is also a leading cause of skin cancer.
Smoking is another contributor to facial wrinkling. The harmful chemicals can prevent the body’s ability to regenerate cells and tissue leading to premature aging of the skin.
The Repetitive movement face squinting, smiling, laughing and frowning can also leave lines and wrinkles. That is why lines near the eyes and mouth are often referred to as “smile lines” or “laugh lines” and lines in the middle of the forehead between the brow are called worry lines.
