They can be described as folds, ridges or creases that are visible on the skin surface. Skin ages all over the body, but much more so where there has been sun exposure. Changes brought on by sun damage (photo aging) include "dryness" (really roughness), sagging, skin growths like keratoses ("liver spots"), and wrinkles. Wrinkles are mostly found on the face, neck, the back of hands and the top of forearms.

Wrinkles, basically, come in two categories - fine surface lines and deep furrows, depending on the severity of the condition. Though aging causes wrinkles, it cannot be described as their sole cause. There are a number of others factors also that lead to the formation of wrinkles.

The loss of elasticity and moisture in the skin leads to wrinkles. Mainly seen with old age, it leads to sagging skin. Wrinkles usually appear when the collagen and elastin present in the connective tissue of the skin weaken or decrease in number. The areas most affected by wrinkles are face, neck and hands. The most prominent symptoms of wrinkles are lined and creased skin and sagging skin.
