Why We Get Wrinkles


You smile, you laugh, and sometimes you worry or frown. It’s all part of life.  Everyone makes facial exprssions hundreds of time throughout a typical day.  We communicate our feelings by making tiny movements of our or facial muscles; however, your face has a limited range of motion.  Over time you'll find that these emotional expressions leave lines and wrinkles that can make you look tired, stressed or angry - even when you're not.


These wrinkles usually form around the eyes, forhead and around your mouth.  Your forehead regions works the muscles that control your eyegbrows so it's common for lines and creases to form in people who use their eyes to communicate.  People who laugh a lot will develop lines along their mouth that extgend up to their nose (nasolabial folds).  People who squint or express anger means the muscles along the side of their eyes will create crow's feet (wrinkles around their eyes).

This is all part of the normal aging process.  The more we use our facial e xrssions the more likely it will cause creasing in your skin, like a piece of paper being foldend and unfolder over and over again.  On top of that, as we age we lose elasticity in our skin, causing more wrinkles to form in the areas of the face that we used the most.  And, don't forget good old gravity, causing laxness is some areas as well.

If your expressions do not match how you really feel, there are a number of solutions available to temporarly reverse that problem.  Call Sylvana today at 301-668-0002.  We can help!
