Definition: Wrinkles are simply folds and creases in the skin and a number of factors contribute to the formation of wrinkles.

Heredity: Everyone inherits a predisposition for the deterioration of the skin's building blocks, the fibrous protein known as collagen found in the dermis. We cannot prevent this predisposition to wrinkling, but special prescription creams can help!

Sun Damage: Collagen deterioration is accelerated by the sun's rays. The Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays and the longer Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays of the sun both penetrate into the dermis which causes the breakdown of collagen and worsening of wrinkles. Many people who have travelled to or lived in summer climates, and those who have fair skin, will look older than their age unless they have been consistently protecting their skin with SPF 30 sunscreen, hats and clothing. Discolouration often accompainies these changes.

Pearl and Pearl Fusion ( can minimize these changes with minimal down time though more than one session will be necessary in some individuals.

Muscle Pull: Consistent tension in a particular area of the face due to a habitual facial expression can result in a permanent furrow. Frown lines between the brows, fine lines around the eyes (better known as crow's feet), and smile lines extending between the nose and mouth are common.

Gravity Changes: Young skin, because of its elasticity, can withstand gravitational pull. With age, degeneration of the collagen and elastin in the dermis makes the skin more susceptible to the pull of gravity causing it to sag. Droopy upper eyelids and bags under the eyes and jowls are common examples of the impact gravity can have on the face.
