Wrinkle Treatment Options
Skin treatments for wrinkles range from creams to cosmetic surgery. Be wary of over-the-counter lotions that promise to get rid of your wrinkles. While moisturizers can make your wrinkles less noticeable, their effects are temporary. The best way to treat your wrinkles is through a medical professional, such as our dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz.
Some of the wrinkles treatments we offer include:
- Glycolic and Salicylic Acid Peels
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Laser Skin Resurfacing
- Cosmetic Surgery
Our dermatologist and skilled aestheticians will determine which wrinkle treatment(s) will help you achieve your desired results. There are several ways to reverse the aging process, and repeat treatments may be required.
Treating Wrinkles With Injectables
Injectables are a non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep furrows effectively. BOTOX® Cosmetic helps wrinkles caused by facial contractions by temporarily relaxing nerves to relax muscles and restrict movement. BOTOX® treatments offer noticeable results which can last 4-6 months. Dysport® uses the same Botulinum toxin as BOTOX® but focuses on frown lines, which develop between your eyebrows due to repeated expressions.
We offer a variety of injectables at our dermatology office and can help you decide whether injectables are right for you or if another option will give you a younger appearance.
What Causes Wrinkles?
It’s important to understand the cause of your wrinkles to narrow down the right skin treatment for you. Wrinkles typically happen with age because your skin cell division slows and the inner layer of your skin begins to thin. This thinning leads to loose, weakened skin which is susceptible to wrinkles. Your skin also has difficulty retaining moisture, producing oil and healing. Aside from aging, wrinkles can arise prematurely due to one or more of these factors:
- Muscle contractions: Repeated facial expressions can eventually lead to facial lines and wrinkles. For example, smiling, squinting and frowning can cause “laugh lines,” “crow’s feet” and “frown lines.”
- Sun damage: Wrinkles caused by sun damage are somewhat avoidable. You can lower your chance of “sunspots,” and lines by avoiding direct sunlight between 10 am and 2 pm and wearing sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
- Smoking: Smoking has detrimental effects on many aspects of your health, and this includes the state of your skin. Collagen production is restricted by smoking, which in turn, causes wrinkles.
