About Us

Developing eyelid wrinkles is common during the aging process. Genetics also plays a role in developing these wrinkles, according to Medline Plus. Wrinkles aren't usually a health concern; however, if the wrinkles are a cosmetic issue, there are treatment options. Modifying lifestyle factors, such as exposure to cigarette smoke and harmful sun rays, reduces your risk for developing these wrinkles.

There are many different causes of eyelid wrinkles. Decreased production of natural oil as you age makes the eyelid skin appear more wrinkled. Deep layers of fat also decrease, making lines more obvious. Smoking also causes eyelid wrinkles. It creates changes in the blood supply, causing premature wrinkles.
