Lines and Wrinkles

There are two types of wrinkles: fine surface lines which are generally caused by ultraviolet light, and deep furrows which are caused by muscle contractions from facial expressions.

Environmental and lifestyle factors that promote wrinkling include smoking, your degree of pigmentation, heredity, and most important, occupational and recreational sun exposure over the course of many years.

Moisture levels in our skin play a major role in the development of wrinkles, particularly micro-wrinkles at the surface which can become much deeper, larger and more visible when the outermost skin layer becomes dryer. 

Most wrinkles associated with aging appear on the parts of the body where sun exposure is greatest. These sites are the face, neck, the backs of the hands, and the tops of the forearms. Some deep furrows are anatomical in nature and have little to do with aging. Generally, it is only the aging wrinkles that really bother people.
