What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles can be defined as creases or lines that form in the skin. They are more typically found near the eyes, mouth, and neck.
What causes wrinkles?
- Age is a very common cause of age lines. As we grow older, our skin loses the elasticity and moisture that keeps skin looking youthful, resulting in the definition of wrinkles.
- Sun exposure and UV ray exposure speeds the body’s natural aging by breaking down collagen, resulting in the appearance of early wrinkling
- Smoking changes the blood supply in the body, accelerating the aging process in the skin
- Repeatedly contracting muscles from facial expressions like frowning can cause wrinkles as the skin loses volume with age
Here are some treatment options we offer to fill in wrinkles:
- PRP Therapy uses a patient’s very own plasma to help promote collagen production in the skin for a smoother, healthier look.
- Chemical Peels can cleanse and exfoliate the skin to reveal a younger surface.
- Facials can be a great way to rejuvenate the skin, replenishing signs of aging for a younger aesthetic.
- BOTOXⓇ is one of the most well-known injectables that can help treat fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily slowing down muscle activity.
- Microdermabrasion uses microcrystals to remove dead skin cells without any invasiveness.
- Dermal fillers such as JUVEDERM®, Voluma®, VOLBELLA®, and RADIESSE® can replenish lost volume in the skin as a result of aging.
