What are Chin Wrinkles?

As you age, you will likely begin to notice the development of wrinkles on the chin. During the aging process, your skin will become more fragile and thin due to the slowdown of oil production. This causes the skin to become dry, which only enhances* the appearance of wrinkles that are present on the neck. Wrinkles can be in the form of lines, folds or creases in the chin area.

What causes Chin Wrinkles?

Wrinkles that appear on the chin can be caused by a number of different reasons, which include extended exposure to UV light, smoking, genetics and certain facial expressions that are repeatedly done. Each of these factors leads to chin wrinkles, and they can be further enhanced* if more than one of the risk factors are present.

How To Control* Double Chin Wrinkles?

If you have a double chin it means that you have excess fat beneath your chin and under the throat. The fat will make the skin sag and create a wrinkle, which is what created the double chin name. If this is the case, you should reduce* the number of calories you consume, which will help to eliminate* the presence of the double chin.

A double chin can also occur due to losing fat in the area of the neck. The skin that had been previously stretched will not be able to resume the original size and shape due to the decline of elastin that is age related. A double chin may also occur due to genetics. Both of these causes have no natural cures and must be treated with cosmetic surgery to eliminate* the effects.

When do Neck Wrinkles Start?

Neck wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. However, the wrinkles can begin earlier if you have extended exposure to sun or do not properly moisturize your skin. The fact is that there is no set age that neck wrinkles will begin to appear, there are many factors that can contribute to the wrinkles, which is why they should be prevented in the first place.
