Wrinkles are fine lines or creases in the skin, primarily in the face, that usually result from a combination of factors, including sun and weather damage, smoking, and natural aging. The elasticity of the middle layer of skin is attributed to the elastin and collagen located there. These deteriorate as we age, however, and the dermis becomes thinner and unable to deliver moisture to the outer layer of skin. Additionally, the innermost layer of skin loses some of its fat over time, causing sagging and wrinkles in the surface of the skin.
Skin ages all over the body, but much more so where there has been sun exposure. Changes brought on by sun damage (photoaging) include "dryness" (really roughness), sagginess, skin growths like keratoses ("liver spots"), and wrinkles.
Wrinkles in turn can be divided into two categories; fine, surface lines and deep furrows. Wrinkle treatments are in general much more effective for fine lines. Deeper creases may require more aggressive techniques, such as plastic surgery. Wrinkles are found primarily on the parts of the body where sun exposure is greatest. These areas especially include the face, neck, the backs of the hands, and the tops of the forearms.

Treatment options for wrinkles in GLC are available in various options, including non-surgical wrinkle removal procedures. Treatment for deep wrinkles tends to be a little more complex than that of fine, thinner lines, but wrinkle injection treatments, as well as laser and radio wave based procedures, are making any type of wrinkle removal increasingly manageable. GLC provides Botox, fillers, fractional laser and radiofrequency treatment to remove wrinkles.
