When Do Wrinkles Start Appearing?

The appearance of wrinkles on your skin is inevitable, as they are a natural part of aging. Wrinkles can start occurring as early as age 25, resulting from sun exposure, genetics, smoking or other factors. Whenever you get them, there are numerous ways to treat wrinkles once they start appearing.

Types of Face Wrinkles

As you age, you’ll start noticing lines and creases on your face. Facial wrinkles fall into two categories — dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles appear when you make certain facial movements, while static wrinkles are visible all the time. Here are a few common types of face wrinkles:

  • Frown lines: These dynamic wrinkles appear as vertical lines when the skin between the eyebrows folds as you frown. They can also be visible when you furrow your eyebrows or squint or when you are confused.
  • Crow’s feet: These wrinkles appear as horizontal and diagonal lines around the corners of the eyes. They become more prominent when you’re laughing or smiling. Since the skin around the eyes is delicate, these wrinkles tend to be the first to appear.
  • Marionette lines: These static wrinkles appear as lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the bottom of the chin. They are caused by a decrease in collagen and elastin in the midface and cheeks.
  • Forehead wrinkles: These wrinkles can be dynamic or static and they appear as horizontal lines that run across the forehead. They are often more visible when you raise your eyebrows.
