Wrinkles are longitudinal cavities resulting from the skin ageing process. Over time, degenerative processes occur in the dermis as a result of a reduction in the amount of collagen and elastin fibres responsible for maintaining proper tension, elasticity and firmness of the skin. As a result, the skin becomes flabby and loses its plasticity, which leads to the formation of furrows. Due to the cause and rate of wrinkle formation we divide into gravitation-related ones (appearing when the skin loses its elasticity and firmness); structural ones(known as “sunnywrinkles”) and mimic ones(appearing first as a result of facial muscles mimic movements). The pace of skin aging depends on genes, hormones as well as many other external factors such as UV radiation, stress and tobacco smoking. Those factors might speed up reactive oxygen species (free radicals) formation in the skinwhich has a destructive effect on collagen and elastin fibres. Women’s most wrinkles are formed during the menopause, due to the reduction in the number of female hormones called oestrogens. Appropriate treatment, prophylactic and anti-aging therapies might be applied, tailored to the needs of the skin, to improve the quality of the skin.
