How do wrinkles form?

Posted by:

I have yet to meet a person who is thrilled to see their skin wrinkling as they age. We all like the wisdom we acquire with aging, but I think most of us can agree that we can do without the wrinkles.

The formation of wrinkles is a complicated process. It involves a combination of exposure to sunlight, environmental pollutants, smoking, decrease in critical connective tissue components such as collagen and elastin with aging, and years of repetitive contraction of the facial muscles that allow us to express our emotions whether it be a smile, frown, anger or surprised look. Our facial expressions are formed by the contraction of specific groups of facial muscles which cause the overlying skin to wrinkle. While we are young, we have enough collagen and elastin in the dermis layer of our skin to support these dynamic changes, but as we age these changes become etched forever on our face. These changes are wrinkles.

Wrinkles are inevitable, but now Botox® Cosmetic can help you decrease the appearance of wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.  So go ahead and feel free to make those facial expressions that are part of your personality and make you so unique, and let Botox® Cosmetic take care of the rest!!!
