Wrinkled skin is a natural part of the aging process. The condition is exacerbated by sun exposure, stress, smoking and other factors.
What you need to know
- The natural aging process generally produces lines and wrinkles.
- Previously unnoticeable features, such as scars, can become more apparent as wrinkles form around them.
- Sun damage compounds the wrinkling process. Ultraviolet light from the sun penetrates all the layers of skin, including those that fortify it and lend it resilience.
- Anti-aging creams and topical products only treat the milder symptoms of wrinkled skin, such as damage to the skin’s uppermost layers.
