Wrinkles & Aging Face
Over time, the appearance of the face and neck changes as we lose muscle tone, volume, and skin elasticity. Facial aging also involves the creation of static and dynamic lines that form over time by muscular animation through our normal facial expressions.
Dynamic lines occur with muscle action, such as the deepening of vertical lines between the eyebrows when we frown. As we age, dynamic lines that only appeared with muscle action can slowly form into more permanent lines that remain with no muscular involvement, while our facial muscles are at rest. These static lines are due to loss of collagen, which is a normal process with aging.
Sun exposure, smoking and poor nutritional habits contribute to premature loss of collagen in the skin, leading to early formation of deep static lines along with loss of tone and volume.
