With aging the outer layer of the skin (epidermis) thins, and we lose fat and collagen. Due to these natural changes, it is common for wrinkles to appear as early as your late 30's. This is all a part of the natural aging process, but some factors like smoking, stress, sun, alcohol, unhealthy eating, and free radical damage can lead to premature aging. Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin in skin and repetitive facial movements over time like frowning, squinting, and laughing. As skin ages, we lose volume which contributes to fine lines and wrinkles, these are a natural part of the aging process. Fine lines are the start of wrinkles, they appear as little creases in the skin. Over time as these lines deepen they become a true wrinkle. There are many ways to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles with injectables, skin care products, and professional treatments.
