What are wrinkles?

Wrinkles is the term used to describe fine lines that appear on the face as a sign of natural ageing. They typically appear as folds, creases and ridges and develop further and deepen over time. Many wrinkles and lines on the face begin to occur as a result of the face contracting and being expressive, however over time they can become static and will even show when the face is resting.  Wrinkles can appear anywhere on the body but typically show on the face, neck and arms. Although wrinkles and lines are a natural sign of ageing many people can be unhappy with the appearance of them and look for treatments to reduce signs of ageing.
