Wrinkles are an inevitable sign of ageing for us all, some can be fine surface lines and others deep furrows, these are caused by a number of reasons including exposure to the sun, smoking and ageing. There are four basic kinds of wrinkles.

Crinkle Lines

Also known as atrophic crinkling rhytids, crinkle lines are relatively shallow. They run in parallel to each other, these are often found on the forehead area and disappear when the skin is stretched.

Permanent Elastotic Creases

This type of wrinkle is associated with pale complexions and heavy sun exposure. Characterized by deep lines in the skin, they occur at points where the skin creases naturally, such as the base of the neck, the lips, and the cheeks.

Dynamic Expression Lines

These are caused by habitual facial expressions, combined with the skin’s loss of elasticity. The more you frown over the years, the tighter and more toned facial muscles become, even when not in use. This draws the skin into frown lines on the brow, crow’s feet around the eyes, and laugh lines above the mouth.

Gravitational Folds

As we age our skin loses its tightness and begins to sag, pulling away from the underlying fat and muscle. This creates folds that are particularly prominent on the neck, chin, and jowls.

Wrinkles can appear anywhere on the body. However, as wrinkling is strongly associated with exposure to sunlight. Areas that get a lot of sun, such as the face, hands, and neck, tend to suffer the worst.
