Wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin

Wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin are tell-tale signs of ageing. Poor circulation and lymph drainage result in a loss of structural integrity, weakened fragile capillaries, decreased skin density and decline in collagen production, all of which causes the dermal structures to deteriorate and the skin to sag (skin laxity). There are two types of lines and wrinkles (rhytides): dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are shown when facial muscles contract, while static wrinkles are visible even when your face isn’t moving.

Causes

Wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin are all a natural part of getting older, but there are some factors that cause them to be more or less pronounced: genetics, sun exposure, pollution, illness and lifestyle.
