What are Lines and Wrinkles?
Wrinkles and lines are medically known as ‘rhytids’. These are the creases that appear as the skin loses volume and elasticity due to age.
Lifestyle issues such as smoking, sun exposure, hydration and skin care can also affect how soon or severely lines and wrinkles appear.
Our genetics make up a significant proportion of how we age. Most people with fairer skin types will age quicker than darker skin types particularly if they see a lot of sun. A balanced healthy diet and steady weight as well as not over exposure to the sun are key fundamentals in delaying or minimising the tell tale signs of ageing away. However, some signs of ageing seem inevitable.
Technically, lines and wrinkles fall into a classification according to their depth. The deeper the wrinkle the higher the rhytid score. Doctors use this terms to examine the skin and look for early signs of ageing as well as sun damage.
Modern cosmetic non-surgical treatments are highly effective in tackling the signs of ageing.
