WHY DO THEY APPEAR?
Wrinkles are folds and creases that are visible on the surface of the skin. Wrinkles occur when there is a decrease in the amount of collagen in the dermis or the collagen becomes damaged. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein produced by cells called fibroblasts, but the production of collagen decreases as we age, causing lines and wrinkles. Over exposure to external factors including UV rays, pollution, smoking and stress is the primary cause of early wrinkling.
