What do I need to know about wrinkles?

ANSWER

Wrinkles mainly happen on the parts of the body that get the most sun exposure, including the face, neck, the backs of the hands, and the tops of the forearms.

Wrinkles fall into two categories: fine surface lines and deeper furrows. If your wrinkles bother you or if you're looking to prevent them in the first place, you have options.
