Wrinkles are creases or folds in the skin. Aging, squinting, dehydration, sun damage and smoking are some of the most common causes of wrinkling. Prolonged immersion in water can also cause temporary wrinkles. Although wrinkles are not, in any way, life threatening, many people would rather not have them. Excessive wrinkles on the face and neck can be unsightly and can make us look way beyond our age. Before they set in permanently, they should be given medical or cosmetic treatment. Laser therapies and injections are popular methods of removing wrinkles however; they can both risky and costly. Topical creams, oils and other skin care formulas are the safer approaches in dealing with wrinkles.
In the last few years, medical research and advanced technologies have brought about new information on skin care: how and why wrinkles show up, the number of ways they can be avoided, the treatment options for facial wrinkles, and how we can maintain a wrinkle-free skin. Dramatic results have been seen experiment after experiment – many people have experienced the changes that technology has made possible. Collagen building can be artificially stimulated to decrease the fine lines on the face and preventive care can also be undertaken to reduce the signs of aging.
