Too much sun exposure can cause wrinkles on exposed parts of the body including the face, neck, back of hands, and tops of forearms. Smoking, having light-colored skin, and heredity, also causes them.
Using a good screen and refraining from smoking are ways that wrinkles can be prevented or minimized.
Comprising two categories, wrinkles can be fine surface lines, or deep furrows. There are options to prevent them, and options to treat them.
To minimize the appearance of wrinkles, creams such as Retinoids, Retin-A, Renova, which are medically the most proven and effective of combating signs of aging that include uneven pigment of the skin, rough patches, and wrinkling. These treatments cause some redness and peeling; and improvement is noted after the peeling ceases.
Antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C, and E, and also beta-carotene, may provide sun protection, along with the use of sunscreen; and may mildly improve wrinkles.
Moisturizers that are advertised to reduce the appearance of fine lines are useful for a temporary improvement.
A Glycolic acid peel may make a slight difference in fine-line intensity.
Deeper peels with ingredients including salicylic acid and trichloroacetic acid do a better job of smoothing fine lines, but the deeper the peel, the more chance of side effects to include scarring and skin color modification.
Sanding the skin, termed dermabrasion can make a substantial difference, but its success is dependent upon the experience and qualifications of the professional performing the procedure. Again, side effects are possible that include scarring and skin color changes. Laser Skin Care Treatment
