In order to treat wrinkles and fine lines we need to know what they are and how they are caused. For those of us who want to maintain a young and supple skin for as long as possible but are apprehensive about going under the knife there are many less invasive methods in the form of intensive anti-ageing serums, Botox and dermal fillers as well as a wide range of skin tightening treatments.
Let’s look at the skin
The skin is made up of three layers; the epidermis, the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. The epidermis becomes a lot thinner and less sticky as we get older causing the skin to dry out. Every decade the moisture of our skin is reduced by at least 10%. The drying out of the skin when ageing also affects the dermis due to a reduction of collagen which is produced; furthermore the elastic fibres which provides us with elasticity diminishes which is why our skin begins to sag as we age. To top it all, perspiration is greatly reduced due to the lessening of sweat glands. Wrinkles and lines on our skin are ridges and creases on the epidermis.
