Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I think she may not be on drugs but had significant weight loss due to ketogenic diet.
Wrinkles come due to
*fast weight loss.
*not taking enough water
*lack of vitamins from fruits and vegetables
Also changes in teeth are due to dieting.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
