Wrinkles types, causes and treatment
Let's talk today about wrinkles. The word itself is very important for men and women and they all look at it as an aging symptom. In fact wrinkles are not related only to aging. It is a symptom that is related mainly to skin damage. Aging is one of the causes of the skin damage and it is not the only cause.
Wrinkles mainly appear on the parts of the body which they are more exposed to sun including face, neck, shoulders and hands.
Wrinkles are categorized into two main categories: fine and deep. Fine lines are superficial and closer to skin’s surface. They are considered as one of the very first signs of aging. As skin begins to age, fine lines may begin to appear around the eyes and other areas on the face. These shallow lines tend to form along expression lines that appear when you smile, laugh or frown.
While fine lines are superficial and closer to skin’s surface, deep wrinkles are more deep-set. As you age, many fine lines may turn into wrinkles as skin loses elasticity and firmness.
The sun exposure usually damage the skin and lead to the appearance of wrinkles.
