But how much do you know about wrinkles? Are you familiar with how they function and what causes them? If you’re thinking about getting dermal fillers in Stockport, we want to help you figure out why you might need them in the first place. Let’s discuss this further in today’s post.


What Are Wrinkles?

In the simplest terms, wrinkles are folds, ridges, or creases on the skin. While the permanent wrinkles most of us think of when we hear ‘wrinkles’ mostly appear as we age, we can also experience them if we spend quite a bit of time in the water.

Wrinkles can appear on virtually any area of the baby, but they typically show up on your face, neck, back of your hands and on your arms. Worldwide, people spend billions of dollars to fight wrinkles, and with good reason, they make us appear older and unhealthy.

There are countless treatment options to fight off wrinkles, like dermal fillers in dermal fillers in Hale, but only a few treatments really work.


How Are They Caused?

This is perhaps of greatest interest to you, because if you know how they form you can potentially prevent them.

The most common causes of wrinkles are:

  • Smoking
  • Dehydration
  • Sun exposure
  • Genetic predispositions
  • Environmental factors
  • And Medications

In healthy skin, the epidermis appears smooth, with a strong layer that protects the body from water an injury caused from the outside. Collagen, that is produced in the skin until age 20, tightens the skin while glycosaminoglycans or GAGs help your skin maintain its moisture.

Wrinkles form because of several factors, none of which can be the sole cause. Aging, however, seems to be the primary factor in the creation of wrinkles. It’s important to note that you lose 1 percent of your collagen each year after you turn 20. You also produce less GAG, elastin, and reduce the function of your sweat and oil glands.

The Scientific American has much more in-depth information about how the skin functions, what causes wrinkles to start forming, and what wrinkles look like under the microscope.


When Do They Begin to Appear?

Perhaps one of the most asked questions we get is when do wrinkles begin to appear. Which is a reasonable concern since prevention is key to skin health.

For the most part, your twenties bring about your first wrinkles. The skin stops responding to antioxidants like it did in your teens, which makes it vulnerable to oxidative stressors. Your skin also starts to dry out more than it did in your teens. Most of this is because you aren’t as oily as you once were because your hormones have balanced themselves out. The good news is this reduces your likelihood of breakouts and acne.

However, this is also a bad thing since drier skin creates more lines around your mouth and eyes. If you really want to avoid them in your twenties, then make sure you start a skin care routine during this decade. If you don’t you could spend your thirties playing catch up.

So you can expect wrinkles to appear for the first time in your twenties.


How Important is Preventative Care?

Very. Start preventing wrinkles in your 20s if you can but even if you start in your 30s there are several things you can do to prevent the formation of wrinkles

A good healthy skin care routine and lifestyle that makes wrinkles less likely to form in your 30s includes:

  • Plenty of hydration (start drinking a full 8 glasses of water if you haven’t already)
  • Use moisturisers that are formulated for your skin
  • Never wear your makeup to bed
  • Go and get facials on a regular basis if you can
  • Don’t spend too much money on anti-aging products, since they can actually stress your skin and lead to more breakouts.
  • Change your diet to include more foods that are high in antioxidants which protects your skin and body from premature aging.

These are some good first steps to nourish your skin and make it more difficult for wrinkles to form. You also need to note what type of skin you have—if you are unaware. For example, the type of moisturiser you would use with dry skin is totally different from what you would if you have oily skin.

You also want to always wash off your makeup and dirt before going to bed, then cleanse, exfoliate, apply a serum that has anti-aging benefits before you add your moisturiser and tone.

Preventative care in your twenties and thirties can dramatically reduce wrinkles as you age.


Do Dermal Fillers Have the Potential to Eliminate Wrinkles?
