Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines are small creases in the skin that are most often formed as a result of specific facial movement. The major difference between wrinkles and fine lines is simply the depth of the crease on the skin. Wrinkles are deeper set while fine lines are very mild. While the best way to get a proper diagnosis is by consulting with a dermatologist, Phyto-C Skin Care by Phytoceuticals, Inc. offers high-quality skin care products that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance.

Understanding Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Common symptoms of fine lines and wrinkles include:

  • Folds and creases in the skin
  • Deep crevices or furrows around the neck or mouth
  • Saggy skin at your jawline leading to a “turkey neck”
  • Skin banding around the neck, especially in women
  • Small and shallow lines found mostly around the mouth and eyes

Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are one of the most visible signs of aging. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, causing skin to lose its elasticity and strength. This can result in a wrinkly, less taught appearance.

Exposure to UV rays weakens collagen fibers further by activating receptors that produce matrix metalloproteinases. This is a fancy way of explaining the factors that that are responsible for breaking down collagen. UV radiation also hinders production of Vitamin A receptors on our skin. Without receptors for Vitamin A to work on, there can be no skin cell growth, leading to thinner skin that is more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines.

Other common causes of fine lines and wrinkles include genetics, sleeping positions, repeated facial expressions and facial movements, smoking, pollution and alcohol consumption.
