Wrinkles are delicate folds caused by sagging and thin skin. Wrinkles occur when the elastin and collagen present in the connective tissues of the skin is damaged or lessened in number. Skin that has weakened looses fat content, smoothness and elasticity and also appears thinner.
Symptoms of wrinkles are as follows:
o Creased and lined skin
o Dropping and baggy skin
o More affected areas include sensitive skin near the eyes, neck and lips.
Though creases are temporary but they tend to get deeper with age.
