Treatments for wrinkles on chest and arms
gin598 posted:
I was a serious sun bather and smoker and have paid the price. I have deep wrinkles on my chest and the skin on my inner arms is very saggy. I have used trentionoin(vitamin A), Vitamin c cream at 10 and 20% , home peels and exfoliators. Not great results. What is the best way to treat these areas?

Hi gin598,

The Outsmart Aging section of our Healthy Beauty Center has some great slideshows, articles and tips on how to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and help to rejuvenate your skin that you may want to look through.

Retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acis, and azelaic acid have been shown to treat signs of aging and make skin look younger according to this piece . Here is some more information on retinoids , which are recommended by a number of dermatologists. This article discusses what ingredients may help reduce wrinkles, and this piece on anti-aging may also be of interest to you.

Have you consulted a dermatologist about your deep wrinkles? He/She may be able to suggest products and/or treatments that will work best for you.

Best wishes,

I have not come across your situation before. I would think, though, that appropriate exercise should minimize the wrinkles.
