Wrinkles and Premature Ageing

As we begin to age, our skin starts to lose its elasticity and due to varying factors, some of us can age faster than others and present with deeper frowns and creases

Frown lines are wrinkles on the forehead that appear between the eyebrows. The appearance of frown lines can worsen as we get older.

Frown lines, along with other facial wrinkling, are usually caused by the interaction of various factors including the aging process, lifestyle, smoking, sun protection and skin care routine as well as some hereditary factors.

Often known as laughter lines, crows feet are wrinkles that start to form from the outer corner of the eyes. They may appear in some people as early as their mid twenties and are more prominent in people who get more exposure to the sun or those who don’t use proper sun-protection. Smokers are also more prone to early signs of aging and wrinkles.

Nasal lines or bunny lines form across and down the side of the nasal bridge and are caused by our normal, everyday expressions such as squinting and laughing.

Marionette lines appear at the outer corners of the mouth and usually cause the mouth to turn downwards, making us appear unhappy looking and older than are actual age.

Upper lip lines that present as vertical lines from the upper of lower lips are most commonly referred to as smoker lines or lipstick lines. They usually form as a result of volume and collagen loss that occurs with age, in addition to the repetitive movement of the tissue from muscular activity

It is also common for many of us to develop sagging jowls that can look similar to orange peel, with a ‘cobbled’ effect. This cobbling and crêping of the skin is usually a result of the repetitive contractions of the chin muscle which creates thin, crossed lines that give the chin an unattractive and damaged look.
