Causes, Symptoms and Treatments
Wrinkles are creases, folds or ridges in the skin. The first wrinkles to appear on a person's face tend to occur as a result of facial expressions. Wrinkles fall into two functional categories, fine surface lines and deep furrows. Most wrinkles tend to appear in the parts of the body which receive the most sun exposure, especially the face and neck, the back of hands and arms.
Sun damage, smoking, dehydration, environmental and genetic factors affect when and where wrinkles form.
Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. As people age, their skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic and less able to protect itself from damage. This leads to the formation of wrinkles, creases and lines on the skin.
Anti wrinkle injections can help to reduce fine lines. For deeper creases, dermal fillers are indicated or even plastic surgery.
