Wrinkles: A Sign of Wisdom

Perhaps! But most people prefer not to have them. What are they exactly? In humans, collagen cells are strong and stable for about 30 years. After this time period, collagen can slowly start to deteriorate and slowly becomes fragmented, causing wrinkles. However, there are multiple factors that contribute and speed up the process of wrinkles such as:

  • Smoking
  • Lack of sleep
  • Squinting
  • Sun exposure
  • Over-washing face
  • Growth factors
  • Lack of sunscreen
  • Certain sleeping positions
  • Skin type
  • Hair styles
  • Occupational and recreational habits

Of course, some of these factors are beyond your control; however, the best preventive measures are to not smoke and always use sunscreen. Skin ages all over the body, but much more so where there has been sun exposure. The sun is responsible for roughness, dryness, sagginess, and growths in addition to wrinkles.

Wrinkles come in two categories: fine surface lines and deep furrows. Treatments available for wrinkles include medical treatments such as vitamin A acid, alpha hydroxy acid peels, antioxidants, and moisturizer. The other alternative is cosmetic procedures such as glycolic acid peels, deep peels, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and Botox.

So worry not. Wrinkles aren’t the worst thing in the world. They can be reduced and somewhat prevented for those who care, but the bigger truth is, afew surface lines won’t hurt you at all.
