As the most visible part of your body, your face reveals many intimate details: your feelings, of course, but also your age. Generally, the first signs of aging or “expression lines” appear at about 35 years of age.
Though expression lines reflect our life experience, many women view them with some distress. Many simply don’t want their life story etched on their face.
Fortunately, effective means of slowing down the appearance of expression lines are now available.
Botox injections are a proven and popular method of looking more youthful and better rested, as if returning from vacation.
As a complement to Botox, facial or wrinkle fillers also help to conceal wrinkles and lines for a youthful and healthy look.
Various factors account for the development of wrinkles and fine lines.
The places where wrinkles appear depend on each person’s personality, personal history, and lifestyle. However, there are facial areas where expression lines tend to appear.
These very common wrinkles appear at the outer corner of the eye, and are due to smiling.
This V-shaped wrinkle appears between the eyebrows. It is due to repeated frowning and projects a look of worry or stress.
These are horizontal lines that cover much of the forehead. They are due to worried expressions and repeatedly raised eyebrows.
Many fine lines may appear around the mouth since this is a particularly mobile part of the face where skin is fragile.
These are lines that extend from the outer corner of the mouth toward the chin, creating clefts of varying length. These wrinkles tend to give the face an expression of sadness and bitterness.
These are horizontal lines that form across the ridge of the nose as a result of contracting muscles around the nose when expressing disgust, for example.
