Wrinkles are a sign of aging. They can also be caused due to certain factors like sun exposure, smoking, various facial expressions which are habitual, dehydration etc.
A wrinkle reducer is basically a cream that is designed to reduce wrinkle appearance on the face. Usually wrinkles appear around the mouth and the eyes and in between the eyebrows.
Wrinkle reducer creams claims to give the skin a smooth and youthful appearance by tightening it.
Sagging of the skin, fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging occur due to loss of elastin and collagen from the skin. Elastin and collagen are two vital proteins of the skin which are responsible for the maintenance of the skin’s elasticity.
Many wrinkle reducer creams contain collagen, elastin, antioxidants like Vitamin A and Vitamin E.
Collagen and elsatin as mentioned earlier, maintains the elasticity of the skin while the antioxidants help in destroying the free radicals which contributes to the aging process. Some products even contain sunscreen as one of its ingredients. Sunscreen plays the role of preventing the formation of new wrinkles.
There are no wrinkle reducer creams available which permanently reduces wrinkles. It is just a temporary process.
Apart from creams, there are wrinkle reducers that can also be injected into the skin. The most common injected product is Botox. When injected into the skin, the product disables the contraction of facial muscles.
