Expression wrinkles occur mainly on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, areas in which there is practically only skin and muscle. Over the years, the repetitive contraction of the mimic muscles in that area produces the formation of deep and marked wrinkles, which result in an aged, sad and tired looking face.
