Wrinkles: What are wrinkles?

အောက်ဆုံးထိ ဆွဲကြည့်​​ပေးကြပါ ခင်ဗျာ

Wrinkles are lines or creases on your skin. It’s a normal part of aging. Wrinkles that occur early in life could be the result of smoking or sun damage. You don’t need to treat wrinkles unless you want to change how they appear on your skin by using over-the-counter products, outpatient procedures or surgery to remove layers of your skin.

What are wrinkles?

Wrinkles are lines that form on your skin. They’re a natural part of your body’s aging process. Wrinkles on your skin look similar to the wrinkles you get on a shirt that needs ironed. They appear as folds, creases or ridges. They’re most often found on your face, neck and arms, but wrinkles can appear anywhere on your body.

Who do wrinkles affect?

Everyone who ages experiences wrinkles. You may be more at risk of getting wrinkles early in life if:

  • You have sun-damaged skin or your skin is frequently exposed to the sun.
  • You smoke tobacco products.
  • Your body loses collagen, which gives your skin elasticity and support.

What age do I start getting wrinkles on my body?

As your body ages, you’ll notice fine lines start to appear on your body. This can start after age 25. The most common age group for people who look for wrinkle treatment is between ages 40 to 55. Wrinkles become more prominent after age 65.

Symptoms and Causes

What do wrinkles look like?

If you look at the palm of your hand, you have lines in your skin. As you age, lines like those in your palm will form on other parts of your body’s skin.

Symptoms of wrinkles include:

  • Lines, creases or folds on your skin.
  • Loose or droopy skin.

Wrinkles are apparent when you’re at rest, but they may become more noticeable when you move your facial muscles by smiling or frowning.

Where on my body will I have wrinkles?

Wrinkles can appear anywhere on your skin but are most common on your:

  • Face.
  • Hands.
  • Neck.
  • Arms.
  • Legs.

What causes wrinkles?

Slow skin cell production, thinning skin layers and a lack of collagen proteins causes wrinkles to form on your skin.

Collagen is a protein within your body that gives your skin structure. It provides stretchiness or elasticity so you can move easily. Your skin is similar to a rubber band. If that rubber band stretches or moves too much, the rubber band becomes loose and loses its ability to snap back to its normal size and shape. When your body’s cells age, their ability to produce proteins slows down. This makes it more difficult for your rubber band to snap back to its original shape, which causes wrinkles.

There are several factors that cause your skin to wrinkle.

  • Aging
  • Facial muscle contractions
  • Sun damage
  • Smoking
  • Environmental factors
  • Pollutants in the air in your environment can cause your body’s collagen to break down as pollution enters your pores. The most common pollutants in your environment that cause wrinkles include:
  • Particulate matter: Particulate matter is a mixture of microscopic solids and liquids in the air which includes dirt, dust and smoke.
  • Soot: Soot is a carbon-based microscopic, solid material that forms when something burns. Soot occurs in the environment from vehicle exhaust and manufacturing facilities.
  • Nitrogen dioxide: Nitrogen dioxide is a gas that exists in the environment. It’s most common near vehicles, industrial manufacturing facilities, construction sites and in some lawn and garden equipment.

Does makeup cause wrinkles?

If you don’t remove makeup, it can clog your pores, which restricts your body’s ability to produce collagen proteins. This could cause premature aging and wrinkles if you never remove your makeup. It’s important to remove makeup at the end of the day with a cleanser to make sure your pores are clean to prevent wrinkles. If you forget to take off your makeup a few times before you go to bed, it’s OK, but habitually leaving makeup on can damage your skin by clogging your pores.

Does caffeine cause wrinkles?

While research is still ongoing to understand more about how caffeine — including coffee — affects your skin, caffeine has some benefits to your skincare routine that are short term. This means that caffeine can temporarily change the appearance of wrinkles, but long-term use of caffeine products doesn’t cure wrinkles. Caffeine is an antioxidant, which can protect your skin from elements that damage the collagen in your skin that causes wrinkles.
