Wrinkles | Nasolabial folds

Nasolabial folds are sometimes referred to as smile or laugh lines. They are best described as the two skin folds on the side of the nose and corner of the mouth. They help make the cheek and upper lip distinctive by separating the two. As a person ages, the fold becomes more pronounced.

One of the most common causes is sun damage. We tend to spend a lot of time in the sun, especially when we are young. This is also the time that we tend to ignore what’s happening to our skin. Smoking is the next culprit. When someone smokes, they purse their lips, which can lead to mouth wrinkles. The chemicals in tobacco cigarettes also accelerate the aging process by as much as 20 percent. Finally, facial expressions are a huge part of why wrinkles form.
