What causes skin to age?
- Environmental Factors i.e. Sun exposure, wind, pollution
- Diet and Lifestyle – Poor eating habits, alcohol use and smoking
- Weight loss can cause skin to sag
- Repetitive muscle movements can cause lines and wrinkles
- Also, as the skin loses Hyaluronic Acid over time, signs of aging begin to appear
Fine lines and wrinkles
As the number one sign of aging; fine lines and facial creases can be both frustrating and inevitable. While this may be universally true, all wrinkles are not created equally. There are two types of facial lines, Dynamic and Static. Each has a unique cause, and each require a different treatment to obtain optimal results.
Facial creases and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements are referred to as Dynamic. Years of continued squinting, worrying, frowning, and smiling, can eventually cause deep lines on the skin. Frown Lines (between the eyebrows), Forehead wrinkles, and Crow’s Feet are just a few examples of Dynamic Wrinkles.
Fine lines and wrinkles resulting from a loss of skin elasticity are called Static. As people age, the skin’s collagen breaks down, and the tissues become lax. These can be further agitated by genetics, a poor diet, and smoking. Examples of Static Wrinkles include lines at the corners of the mouth, along the cheeks, and neck wrinkles.
