Lines and Wrinkles
Over time, our skin develops fine lines and wrinkles. This is part of “intrinsic aging” which is largely controlled by genetics. External factors – “extrinsic ageing” can affect the speed at which they develop.
Factors that promote wrinkling include smoking, skin type (people with light-coloured skin and blue eyes are more susceptible to sun damage), heredity (some families wrinkle more), hairstyle (depending on how much skin is covered by hair and protected from the sun), dress (again, by determining which skin is exposed), and occupational and recreational sun exposure over the course of many years.
Wrinkles and lines can be divided into two categories: fine surface lines and deep furrows. Wrinkle treatments are in general much more effective for fine lines. Deeper creases may require more aggressive techniques.
