Sun Protection : Sun protection with hats and sunscreens allows your skin to repair. Adding retinol or retin a (tretinoin) will further allow the skin to heal and improve early wrinkles. Certain lasers can help thicken the skin. Later on plastic surgery to remove skin and smooth wrinkles will help.

See Plastic surgeon: Premature facial wrinkles appear at a younger age due to sun, weathering, excessive use of muscles and smoking. Obviously, management includes prevention, glycolic acid containing serums/creams, broad band light/ laser treatments and in some cases. Botox injections. See your local plastic surgeon for the best options specific to your care.
