EMBRACE YOUTHFUL SKIN
At Miriderma Skin Clinic, we understand that lines and wrinkles can affect your confidence and make you feel self-conscious. But fret not, because we have the expertise and treatments to help you achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Let's dive into why our skin develops wrinkles with age.
WHY DO WRINKLES APPEAR?
As we age, our skin undergoes several changes. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, which are vital proteins responsible for maintaining the skin's elasticity and firmness. Additionally, repetitive facial expressions, sun exposure, and environmental factors contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles.
WHERE DO WRINKLES COMMONLY DEVELOP?
Wrinkles can manifest in different areas of the face, each with its own unique characteristics. Understanding where wrinkles commonly develop can help you identify the areas that may benefit from targeted treatments.
Horizontal creases can form across the forehead due to repeated facial expressions and natural ageing. These lines can contribute to an aged or tired appearance.
Frown lines are the vertical creases that appear between the eyebrows. Over time, these lines can become more pronounced, making you look perpetually worried or angry.
These fine lines and wrinkles extend from the outer corners of the eyes. Crow's feet typically develop due to years of smiling, squinting, and sun exposure, accentuating the signs of ageing around the eyes.
These are the deep lines that extend from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Nasolabial folds become more noticeable with age as the skin loses elasticity and volume.
Marionette lines are the vertical lines that appear from the corners of the mouth, extending downward towards the chin. These lines can give the face a downward or sad appearance.
VERTICAL LIP LINES (SMOKER'S LINES)
These lines develop above the upper lip and are often associated with smoking but can also occur due to natural ageing and repetitive lip movements.
