The skin changes associated with ageing appear in the 20s and 30s. You can delay them to a certain extent by paying attention to external factors such as a healthy diet, regular exercise or getting enough sleep each night. Collagen and elastic fibres are constantly broken down as we age, leading to wrinkles on our skin. The subcutaneous tissue that supplies the skin with nutrients slowly shrinks and becomes thinner, mainly due to the loss of moisture in this area, which can be caused by many different reasons, such as diabetes or other diseases that do not provide enough proteins for cell growth.
The mimic muscles are firmly attached to the facial skin. If
the mimic muscles are tensed, a visible wrinkle appears.
Depending on which muscle is tensed, joy, astonishment, anger or annoyance can be expressed with the face,
astonishment, anger or annoyance. Especially the glabellar wrinkles
between the eyebrows often convey the impression of displeasure. These
are therefore also called "wrinkles of anger" and give rise to the so-called
"evil eye". Often, however, these wrinkles are only the result of great
concentration or tension, e.g. when working at a computer or driving a car.

the facial wrinkles become permanently deepened over the years. The wrinkles
remain even when the muscles are not tense.
The aim of an effective wrinkle treatment is to prevent the muscles from

Botulinum toxin, or Botox for short, is available for this purpose.
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring bacterial protein. When it is
injected into a muscle, it specifically blocks the nerve impulses there.
As a result, the muscle in question can no longer be tensed as usual.
