What causes us to age and form wrinkles?

A combination of factors:

  • chronic sun exposure
  •  loss of subcutaneous fat
  • the muscles which are responsible for facial expression are constantly folding the skin and this leads to the progressive development of hyper dynamic wrinkles
  • the effects of gravity
  • finally with ageing our underlying facial bones and cartilage undergoes resorption,  which leads to a decrease in facial volume
