Even if antiaging cremes, lotions and serums are most of the time successful to slow down the wrinkle formation, it has no effect to prevent on deeper wrinkles.
Improvements in plastic surgery show new ways to fight with the aging signs and their effects. Dermal fillers are the most common way to fill and straighten the wrinkles. Dermal fillers can be used in hands with laser skin renovation techniques. In this way face and hands look as the same age.
