What Are Deep Wrinkles?

Deep wrinkles are pronounced creases in the skin that typically appear as a result of aging, repetitive facial expressions, and environmental factors. Unlike fine lines, deep wrinkles1 are more noticeable and can be challenging to treat. They often appear in areas like the forehead, around the eyes, and between the nose and mouth.

What Causes Deep Wrinkles?

The primary cause of deep wrinkles2 is the natural aging process. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, leading to reduced skin elasticity and volume3. This, combined with years of facial expressions and exposure to environmental factors like sun damage, can result in the formation of deep wrinkles.
