Skin Wrinkle

A wrinkle is a crease in the surface of your skin due to sagging of the skin structures. As you get older, your skin naturally experiences a diminution of collagen and elastin, two important proteins that make your skin soft, firm and elastic. The disappearance of these substances causes your skin to lose its flexibility and increases the volume giving rise to wrinkles and double chin.   

Wrinkles are the result of degradation in the epidermis and dermis. The dermis, located below the dermis, is designed to support and nourish the epidermis, the outermost surface of the skin that protects the dermis and other organs of your body. To play its protective role, the epidermis is composed of vessels, lymph and fibers which the number and quality begin to decline from age 25. No matter what type of skin you have, this irreversible irregularity will eventually result in appearance of wrinkles. 

No dermatologic intervention can prevent formation of wrinkles; it is a natural biological deterioration. You can, however, reduce or remove age-related wrinkles either surgically or by the use of medications.  Without an effective treatment, the deterioration will lead to more visible pores on your face, making you look old.
