Aging + Wrinkles 101
Our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did.
Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, stress, etc) factors.
Hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear.
Wrinkles are creases, folds, or ridges in the skin. The first wrinkles to appear on a person's face tend to occur as a result of facial expressions. Sun damage, smoking, dehydration, some medications, and environmental and genetic factors affect when and where people will develop wrinkles.
