Wrinkles more of a female worry


Findings of a latest trial confirm that women are more prone to wrinkling, especially in the perioral region, around the lips.
According to the study published by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), women exhibit more and deeper wrinkles in the perioral region than men.

Details of the study
In order to determine wrinkle severity, researchers led by Dr. Emma C. Paes of the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery at the University Medical Center in Utrecht Netherlands used skin surface replicas of 10 male and 10 female corpses between the ages of 75 and 93.
Fresh cadavers were evaluated using the dermaTOP blue three-dimensional digitizing system, a 3D technology that assists analysis of roughness or smoothness of the human skin.

Observations by the researchers
Women exhibited more and deeper wrinkles in the perioral region than their male counterparts, researchers found.

Histological analysis unearthed several differences between the skin texture of men and women. Women had a fewer sweat glands and sebum secreting sebaceous glands in the perioral region than men.
Sebum is a waxy and oily substance which plays a key role in filling of the skin.
Women had fewer blood vessels supplying blood to the lip region, implying a lesser vascularized skin that allows wrinkles to develop more quickly. Also, the muscles around a woman’s mouth are packed closer to the skin, pulling the skin tighter thereby causing wrinkles, researchers stated.
While, the number of hair follicles were approximately the same in both genders, men scored more on sweat glands per hair follicle, leading to a more relaxed skin aging, researchers explained.

What can women do to avoid the onset of wrinkles?
While a series of treatment options namely Botox or Dysport, lasers, injectable wrinkle fillers, dermabrasion and chemical peels are available these days to combat wrinkles, the effectiveness of all is certainly doubtful.
Meanwhile, long known tips like avoiding direct sun exposure, quitting smoking and evading a drastic weight loss are certainly known to work wonders.
The findings re reported in the current issue of Aesthetic Surgery Journal.
