The Birth of a Wrinkle

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of ageing – the first wrinkles to appear on a person’s face tend to occur as a result of facial expressions, however sun damage, smoking, dehydration, medication, environmental and genetic factors affect where and how rapidly people get wrinkles.

Most wrinkles tend to appear in the parts of the body which receive the most sun exposure, especially the face and neck, the back of the hands, and the arms.

When a person is young, the skin springs back, but as you get older, the skin loses its flexibility. Springing back becomes harder and less frequent, resulting in more permanent grooves.

The two main types of wrinkles are surface lines and deep furrows.
Most basic wrinkle treatments tend to help reduce the fine lines. For deeper creases, there are more aggressive techniques, such as plastic surgery or injections of fillers.


Avoid the sun: avoiding excessive sun exposure reduces skin damage, because the sun causes the skin to age faster. Hats, protective clothing, and sun screens can protect the skin from wrinkles by reducing sunlight damage.
Moisturise: Moisturisers do not prevent wrinkles, but they may help temporarily make tiny lines and creases less evident.
Stop smoking and reduce alcohol consumption: Stopping smoking can also help reduce signs of ageing – even a long-term heavy smoker can slow down the process by giving up.  Reducing or avoiding alcohol is also a good idea as it dehydrates the body and the skin.
Beauty Sleep: The concept of beauty sleep is not a myth either – sleeping at least 7 hours a night, eating healthily and exercising all help maintain overall health including skin quality.

Celltone Gel is ideal for reducing the appearance of Dark Spots, Stretch Marks and Facial Wrinkles has been proven to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles after 28 days.
