Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are one of the most common complaints of aging. They can begin to appear as early as our 20’s and can make us appear tired or angry and older than we feel. Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin. As these fibers break down, the skin begins to lose its strength and elasticity causing fine lines and wrinkles to begin to appear. Most people first notice fine lines and wrinkles on their foreheads and around their eyes and mouth. Age, lifestyle, genetics and repeated expressions are all to blame, but research shows that sun damage from harmful UVA and UVB rays is the largest contributing factor.
