What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are one of the first visible signs of ageing, if not the first.
A wrinkle is a fold, ridge or depression in the skin that results from the progressive loss of elasticity of the skin due to ageing, combined with various other phenomena.
It is necessary to distinguish between wrinkles and fine lines. Furrows of 0.2 to 1 millimetre are considered to be fine lines. When their depth exceeds 1 millimetre, they are considered to be wrinkles.

What are the different types of wrinkles?
There are two types of wrinkles: dynamic and static.
Dynamic wrinkles develop over time, depending on the muscular movements your face makes most often. These are also known as expression lines.
Static wrinkles, or ageing wrinkles, are the result of the sagging of the skin due to age and the effects of external ageing factors such as the sun.
How To Prevent Wrinkles?
Fighting against aging and the passing of the years is impossible. However, it is possible to anticipate the formation of wrinkles simply by taking care of your body.
Our bodies were built to make good use of the sun. Sunlight helps keep our sleeping patterns on track so we can stay awake by day and sleep soundly at night. Sunlight also helps our skin make vitamin D, which is needed for normal bone function and health. Yet sunlight can also cause damage.
Staying out of the sun is the best way to avoid sun damage, but most of us go outdoors regularly. So when you go outside always wear sunscreen and Avoid sun in the middle of the day, from about 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
It is well-recognized that certain nutrients are essential for skin health. These include Vitamins A, C, and E. It has also been suggested that these nutrients are best consumed as foods, rather than supplement pills.
Broadly speaking, the diet to achieve perfect skin should include adequate doses of a wide selection of fruits and vegetables, oily fish and legumes, and be low in free sugars, trans fats and processed foods.
Cultivating healthy lifestyles is essential to delay the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin health.
Exercise helps to increase blood flow, which nourishes skin and keeps cells vital. It also helps to flush out any cellular debris from the system, which benefits your skin as well. And don't forget that toning muscle benefits your skin elasticity and helps it look healthier.
The skin also reflects the excesses we commit. Regular consumption of alcohol and tobacco favors the appearance of wrinkles, because they induce the body to dehydrate.

Non-surgical Anti-wrinkle treatments
There are many treatments available to help reduce fine lines on the skin. But keep in mind that there's no one treatment that deals with all skin issues and works for all people, and a cosmetic physician may suggest you have more than one: for example muscle relaxers for forehead lines, dermal fillers for nasolabial folds (running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth) and volume replacement, and IPL or a peel for fine lines and skin texture.
Injectable dermal fillers
- Botulinum toxin: Botulinum toxin type A, or Botox, blocks the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. It can decrease the lines on the forehead, the frown lines between the eyes, and “crow’s feet” around the corners of the eyes.
- Hyaluronic acid: injectable HA is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, and to create structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. The effects of injectable hyaluronic acid are seen immediately.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is a treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer.
Newer laser technologies give your plastic surgeon a new level of control in laser surfacing, permitting extreme precision, especially in delicate areas.
A face-lift (rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to create a younger appearance in your face. The procedure can reduce the sagging or folds of skin on the cheeks and jawline and other changes in the shape of your face that occur with age.
There are many different kinds of facelift, but generally the surgeon will:
- make cuts (incisions) above the hairline at the temples that extend down in front of your ear, underneath your earlobe and behind the ear
- make cuts under the chin if the jawline is also being lifted
- remove the surplus facial skin
- pull the remaining skin backwards and upwards before stitching it into its new position
- sometimes redistribute facial fat and tissue or add this to the face
- bandage the face to minimise bruising and swelling.
