Wrinkles are divided in to two groups such as fine wrinkles and deep wrinkles. Wrinkles start appearing when the collagen and elastin proteins of the skin become weak or vanish. Some essential functions of skin such as hydration, oxygenation, nutrition, protection and regeneration are decelerated and can’t perform their process. The skin is on overdrive throughout the day while it restores lost moisture and repairs the damage at night. This process of the skin is decelerated as we age and the skin becomes dry as well as expression of fine lines and skin wrinkles starts to show. Wrinkles are also found in other parts of the body such as hands, neck, etc.
Tips To Get Rid Of Face Wrinkles

The heat of the sun also speeds up process of aging and can cause premature aging. Along with wrinkles heat of the sun also cause discoloration, burning and sagging of the skin.
Too much sun exposure without protection damages the skin beyond repair. So whenever you are going out, apply UVA/ UVB protection sunscreen and reduce the skin exposure to the sun. Along with wrinkles, sunscreen helps to prevent skin cancer. Apply sunscreen to all the areas that are exposed to the sun as well as apply the sunscreen again after you have been in the water or while you have been perspiring. Also wear protective clothes, sunglasses and hats to protect from sun.

Treatments for wrinkles
Two types of medications such as topical retinoids and nonprescription wrinkle creams are available for wrinkles. Topical retinoids are obtained from vitamin A and examples of Topical retinoids are Tretinoin (Renova, Retin-A) and tazarotene (Avage, Tazorac). Retinoids can make the skin burn easily so it should be used with a skin care program. Nonprescription wrinkle creams efficiency depends upon the part of active ingredient or ingredients. Compared to prescription creams, nonprescription wrinkle creams have less concentration of active ingredients so the results are limited and short-lived.
Surgeries and other techniques:
There are many surgeries, skin-resurfacing techniques, injectables & fillers such as Laser, light source and radiofrequency treatments; dermabrasion, chemical peel, microdermabrasion, soft tissue fillers, botulinum toxin type a (botox) and face-lift are accessible to even out wrinkles. Each of them has their own set of possible results and side effects. Each of them also works in their own way. Dermabrasion includes planing of skin surface layer with a fast rotating brush. The skin surface is removed by planing and in its place a new layer of skin grows. Microdermabrasion technique also includes removing of skin surface like dermabrasion but in this technique less surface skin is removed. In laser treatment, a laser beam is used to destroy the skin’s outer layer and it heats the underlying skin which enhances new collagen fibers growth. Nonablative fractional resurfacing is the latest developments in laser technology where the laser separates the light up into several smaller pulses which have reduced the healing time.
In chemical peel, an acid is applied to the affected areas by the doctor. The acid burns the outer layer of the skin and in its place new skin forms. Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) is injected in little doses into particular muscles which cause them to contract. The skin flattens and looks smoother and less wrinkled when the muscles can not constrict. In soft tissue fillers fat, collagen and hyaluronic acid are injected into deeper wrinkles on the face. Fat, collagen and hyaluronic acid plumps and smooth out the wrinkles. In face-lift, excess skin and fat in lower face and neck are removed as well as underlying muscle and connective tissues are tightened.
