Deep wrinkles, sagging skin, cellulite, and stretch marks are generally very difficult to treat and we don't want to make promises we can't keep. However, there are substances that are being used to reduce the appearance of these skin conditions:

1) Skin-muscles relaxing agents (botox like effect): These agents relax the tiny muscles in the skin thereby firming the skin and ironing out wrinkles. Examples: Argireline, SkinFirm Dipeptide, Snake Peptide, SkinTight C-Root, SkinLift DPHP

2) Collagen-boosting agents: These agents stimulate formation of collagen, an important structural protein to maintain firmness of the skin but decreases with age. Examples: Tripeptide-5, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38, Coenzyme Q10

3) Moisturizing agents (http://www.makingcosmetics.com/Humectants_c_54.html): These agents maintain proper hydration of the skin which is crucial to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

Usually, combination of all types of ingredients are used in high-potency anti-wrinkle products.
