Wrinkles occur as folds on the skin. On aging, the skin produces reduced levels of protein, collagen, and elastin. It makes the skin thin and less resistant to damage. The causes are environmental exposure, dehydration, and toxins on the face. Wrinkles are reduced by applying retinoids, antioxidants, and alpha-hydroxy-acids on the skin. It is also managed by doing dermabrasion, glycolic acid peels, and laser resurfacing.
