You may be surprised to learn that collagen and elastin (protein fibers that keep your skin plump and firm) begin to decline in production as early as your teens, and most people begin to notice that fine lines begin on their faces around the age of 25.
The first place most people will start noticing these fine lines is the skin around the eyes, because the skin there is noticeably thinner than the skin on the rest of the face and can wrinkle faster.
Fortunately, these days there are many ways to slow down the noticeable rate of skin aging, both at home and in the clinic. Although prevention is always better than cure, there are even treatments that can reverse the signs of aging that may already be present.
WHAT CAUSES FINE LINES AND WRINKLES?
As we age, the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that give the skin a youthful, supple and radiant appearance, naturally slows down.
The skin becomes less elastic, less resistant to change and more fragile. In addition, as your skin ages, it naturally produces less natural oils, which makes the skin look drier, highlighting the appearance of wrinkles.
The aging process also sees a reduction in adipose tissue that lives in the deeper layers of your skin - and while most of us strive for a lower body fat percentage, when it comes to the face, we need some adipose tissue to give a plump and youthful appearance to areas such as the cheekbones.
When we start to see a decrease in this fatty tissue with age, the skin can start to look looser or flabby, which can cause more noticeable lines, wrinkles and stretch marks on the skin, especially on the face and neck.
Fine lines caused by sun damage
Ultraviolet radiation is the primary cause of premature aging of the skin, because UV light accelerates the natural aging process by breaking down the connective tissue of your skin (collagen and elastin fibers) within the deeper layer of the dermis.
Without these supportive, connective tissue fibers, your skin loses strength and elasticity - in other words, when you move it, it doesn't ‘bounce back’ the way you want it to. This leads to the fact that the skin begins to sag prematurely and wrinkle.
Fine lines caused by lifestyle
Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, stress, insomnia, poor and inadequate nutritional intake and hydration of the skin, it can accelerate the normal aging process and can contribute to the formation of wrinkles - if you need any extra motivation, to get your beauty sleep, drink another reason why it is so important to drink lots of water and eat your veggies!
Thin line caused by repeated facial expressions
Doing the same facial movements over and over, such as smiling, laughing and frowning, leads to fine lines and wrinkles.
Of course, we can't be expected to never move our face, but we can pay attention to the expressions we routinely make.
Every time we use a facial muscle, a groove forms under the skin surface and as the skin ages and loses its elasticity, it can no longer 'November back’ into place. These furrows then become wrinkles on your face.
WHAT KIND OF WRINKLES WILL I DEVELOP?
The fine lines that form on our faces and necks are divided into two categories: dynamic and static.
Dynamic wrinkles develop from repeated facial movements (such as lip lines, which can occur from repeatedly drinking from a straw).
Static wrinkles, on the other hand, consist of a loss of elasticity of the skin and the effects of gravity - for example, wrinkles that come with the jaws.
Dynamic wrinkles can also become static wrinkles over time. For example, when thin smile lines, nasolabial folds become more pronounced, as our cheeks lose their fullness.
The most common areas of the face where you can develop wrinkles are:
Forehead lines that run horizontally along the upper part of the T-zone
Decubitus lines that scrape the bridge of the nose between the eyes
Worry lines that form ‘Decennials' between the eyebrows
Spreading out from the corners of the eyes, crows feed
Accent-forming laugh lines around the upper lip
Lip lines that form vertical lines around the mouth; and
Bottom lines that frame the chin vertically
CAN YOU GET RID OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES?
Aging is inevitable, but fortunately, fine lines (and even deeper wrinkles!) if they're something that bothers you, they don't have to be a permanent fixture on your face.
How you treat your fine lines and wrinkles will depend on where your skin is during the aging process. If you are just starting to see fine lines forming, if you have some deep wrinkles that may need more aggressive treatment, a more gentle approach can give good results for you.
How to get rid of fine lines if they are just beginning to appear
First of all, make sure you always wear sunscreen - a broad-spectrum mineral cream with at least SPF 30+ will ensure that your skin is protected from harmful UV light that filters out the clouds.
You'll also want to make sure you get plenty of sleep, avoid stress as much as possible, enjoy a balanced diet, and drink plenty of water throughout the day - and so will your skin if you're dehydrated!
How to get rid of wrinkles that have been there for a while

Unlike the Derma roller, micro needling pens are motorized and have a wider December of speed, depth and needle gauge, which gives you more control over your results and the areas you can target.
Micro needle pens work by creating microscopic holes in the skin, known as microchannels.
Although these microchannels are imperceptible to the naked eye, they try to trick the skin into thinking it has been injured, causing the skin to trigger a healing response, including increased cell turnover and collagen and elastin production.
