Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a fact of life and the reasons they appear are numerous, infact we cannot escape them as we are born with them! They are found on healthy skin of all ages and gender, where the loss of collagen and elasticity over time is revealed through furrows, crinkles, or creases. 

The wrinkle lines that etch your face depend on several factors including genes and lifestyle. However, we can’t change our genes or the effects of gravity over time so when age catches up with us we may have to look at other options.

Apart form the natural ageing process as a result of genetics, our skin is also exposed to environmental factors, over adulthood, which have an impact on the lines and wrinkles that occur on our faces and bodies.

Some of the environmental factors that contribute to our wrinkles and lines are smoking, sun, pollution, lack of hydration and the repetition of facial expressions and sleeping positions.

Sun exposure to UVA, UVB and UVC rays is particularly damaging as sunlight directly damages the framework of collagen and elastin that gives the skin its strength and elasticity. Remember to wear sunscreen all year round to protect our biggest organ – our skin!

From the age of 20 our bodies start to age with collagen and elastin fibres becoming looser and thicker along with changes to our internal cells, tissue and muscle.

As we go through the years the loss of elastin, collagen and particularly in women oestrogen, contribute to wrinkles, sagging, and pigmentation issues.

Wrinkle smoothing injections are gaining in popularity with men as they wish to look younger fresher and more confident in their appearance.

Men usually have a much denser muscle in their forehead and brow area than women. As a result men have a preference for the straighter eyebrow on the brow bone and women the arched eyebrow that sits above the brow bone.

It seems that although men opt for anti-wrinkle injections to smooth out their forehead and brow lines, to maintain a more masculine appeal they do not go for the completely smooth appearance as women tend to do.

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most common form of treatment for reducing the signs of ageing and the appearance of wrinkles. The reason being that the anti-wrinkle injections block the nerve impulses which are the cause of the muscle contracting. These injections use a drug called Botulinum Toxin Type A and should only be administered by a qualified nurse or doctor.
