As you age, your skin will become thinner, drier, and less able to protect itself from damage. This leads to the skin forming wrinkles, which are creases and lines on the skin created by diminished collagen and elastin. Wrinkles can vary from being fine lines to deep crevices, mostly noticeable on the face and neck. You may have wrinkles only present when you make facial expressions, and/or present all of the time.
Here Are 4 Types of Wrinkles
FINE LINES – Fine lines on the face that are almost parallel to each other. They appear on different areas of the face and body, but tend to disappear or ‘shift’ when your body posture changes. These wrinkles are associated with loss of elasticity, and can be found all over the body.
PERMANENT CREASES – Creases in the skin that become more permanent over time. They show up most frequently on the cheeks, the upper lip, and the base of the neck.
EXPRESSION LINES – Lines that are caused by facial muscle movement. These are commonly referred to as “frown (or smile!) lines” and “crow’s feet”.
GRAVITATIONAL FOLDS – Folds are due to the natural effects of gravity and become increasingly obvious as skin begins to fold and sag.
