Wrinkles are folds in the skin caused by reduced skin elasticity, changes in the fatty tissue under the skin, and a gradual reduction of bony tissue. These folds are most conspicuous on sun-exposed skin, particularly on the face, neck, hands, and forearms. 

Wrinkles can be categorized as dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles only appear with movement. If left untreated, they can become static and be visible even without movement. 

Wrinkles are part of the natural aging process and are rarely cause for alarm. However, deep, excessive wrinkling can detract from your appearance, leading to lower self-esteem and quality of life. Treatments can smooth out wrinkles and make them less visible.

More About Wrinkles


Age is the main cause of wrinkling, though certain controllable factors are also responsible for it. Exposure to ultraviolet light and smoking, for instance, can weaken your skin’s elasticity. Repeated facial expressions can lead to permanent grooves as you get older and your skin becomes less flexible. 

Who is at risk? 

Everybody is susceptible to wrinkles. Those who regularly expose themselves to the sun or who smoke are more prone to wrinkles than others. 

What are the most effective treatments? 

Botox can treat dynamic wrinkles by preventing muscle movement in the affected area. By reducing dynamic wrinkles, Botox also prevents static wrinkles from forming.

Laser resurfacing methods can decrease static wrinkling by gently vaporizing the outer layer of the skin, which stimulates the production of new collagen fibres. Another treatment for static wrinkles involves using hyaluronic acid fillers to plump up the affected areas. This gives the skin a more youthful and energetic look.
