Study of the factors influencing skin tension and the formation of wrinkles.

Wrinkles, a visible hallmark of aging skin, arise from intricate interactions between various intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Among these factors, skin tension, defined as the mechanical force exerted on the skin due to underlying muscles and body structure, has gained recognition as a significant contributor to wrinkle formation. This abstract explores the connection between skin tension and wrinkles, highlighting the pivotal role of collagen and elastin in maintaining skin elasticity and discussing strategies to mitigate the effects of tension-induced wrinkling. Human skin, comprising the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis layers, undergoes changes over time due to both inherent genetic influences and external factors like UV radiation, pollution, and repetitive facial movements. The dermis, housing essential components including collagen and elastin fibres, plays a critical role in skin health. Wrinkles develop due to the degradation of these fibres, leading to reduced skin elasticity.
