Aging and wrinkles go hand in hand. It can either be "extrinsic" or "intrinsic", the former refers to environmental aggressors while the latter describes things that happen internally in the body which eventually affects the overall skin's appearance. Apart from aging, the skin type also plays a causative factor even though it is often overlooked. Dry skin can increase the rate of aging (thinning of the epidermis) which links to wrinkles. It's imperative to slow down premature wrinkles as much as possible.

There is an abundance of anti-aging over the counter products which can help improve the appearance of wrinkles but it is ultimately inevitable and getting more than a temporary fix is essential to prolong that "youthful" appearance. 

Dermal Fillers can be used to help plump the skin, reducing visible wrinkles & fine lines while BTX can help to combat this problem by "freezing" the muscles.
