What Causes Wrinkles? 

Collagen and Elastin Depletes and Slows Down

As we we get older, the skin gets thinner when collagen and elastin synthesis slow down. This is made worse by UV damage and exposure to environmental contaminants. Wrinkles and fine lines can also be caused by dehydration or allergies in faces of any age. Young children with allergies, asthma or eczema have creases and folds under the eyes, call Dennie-Morgan lines.

Sun Damage

Other factors like pollution, nutrition, genetics, smoking, and certain medications can also contribute to the formation of wrinkles. However the majority of wrinkles and fine lines are still related to photo damage from ultraviolet light. Damage from ultraviolet (UV) light exposure is responsible for almost 80% of the skin changes commonly attributed to the aging process. The biggest sources of UV light are the sun and indoor tanning beds.

Ultraviolet light damage causes both a breakdown of collagen and elastin (molecules in the dermis that give structure , strength and elasticity to the skin) by activating enzymes called matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) but also decreases the deposition of new collagen by dermal fibroblasts. When exposed to ultraviolet light, fibroblasts undergo aging or senescence.

Types of Wrinkles : Dynamic Wrinkles and Static Wrinkles

Wrinkles and lines first appear in the lines of facial expression. Dynamic wrinkles are the ones that appear when a facial expression, such as a smile or frown, is made and go away when the face is relaxed. Eventually, these dynamic wrinkles become permanent or static wrinkles as the facial expressions etch them into the skin that has lost some amount of strength and elasticity.

Wrinkles Treatment in Ensoul Medical Clinic

Facial skin rejuvenating anti wrinkle treatment has long been the most highly desired aesthetic procedure. The demand for no-downtime procedures in skin rejuvenation has spurred aesthetic researchers to develop new non-invasive procedures. Depending on the severity of the skin, we will work on a wrinkle treatment program that uses different modalities of equipments to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin and elastin allows our skin to stay firm and reduction of wrinkles.
