The emergence of facial wrinkles is a process of skin aging along with advancing age in humans. To estimate age based on facial wrinkles, we conducted cross-sectional study among Indonesian's adult population. Sample in this study were Indonesian adult consisted of 35 male subjects and 35 female subjects with age ≥ 20 years old. The facial wrinkles were studied on the forehead-glabela and around the eyes. There were significant differences in forehead-glabela score between male and female (p=0.002), while the score around the eyes and total scores showed no significant difference with p respectively 0.802 and 0.102. Based on the linear regression, age can be estimated from the total scores: estimated age for male = 21.951 + 6.821 (total scores) ± 3.292 and estimated age for female = 20.256 + 6.643 (total scores) ± 3.333.
