According to the study published by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), women exhibit more and more people in the perioral (lip) region than men.

Researchers from the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery at the University Medical Center in Utrecht.

Several differences between the skin texture of men and women were discovered. Women had fewer sweatshirts and sebum secreting sebaceous tassels in the perioral region than men. Sebum is a waxy and oily substance which plays a key role in filling the skin.

Women have had blood vessels supplying the blood to the lip region, implying a less vascularized skin that allows wrinkles to develop more quickly. Also, the muscles around the skin are being pulled closer to the skin, pulling the skin tighter and causing wrinkles, researchers stated.
While the number of hair follicles was equal to the same in both genders, men were more likely to sweat tassels per hair follicle, leading to a more relaxed skin ageing, explained explanations.
