- The contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle causes wrinkles around the eyes, as time passes these wrinkles transform into furrows and facial depressions.
- The skin of the eyelids and periorbital area, like the rest of the face, loses collagen and elastin. This favors the formation of wrinkles that are superficial at first and then deepen.
- The effect of gravity causes the forehead and eyebrows to fall on the eyelids, causing wrinkles and an aspect of sadness, tiredness and old age.
