What are wrinkles?

They are furrows, folds of skin that form on the face with age or with certain facial expressions.

They can be divided into two types:

  • wrinkles caused by emotional expressions
  • wrinkles caused by aging

The wrinkles appear even at a young age and are due to the expression that a person takes, even during sleep. Wrinkles from aging instead appear due to a failure of the subcutaneous tissues, not necessarily linked to the age. Smoking, stress, pollution and abuse of alcohol facilitate the formation of facial wrinkles. Wrinkles may also form due to a sudden drop in body weight.

Wrinkles involve the skin, that is epidermis and dermis.

They develop because of failure of subcutaneous structure formed by elastic fibers and collagen.
