Why Wrinkles Happen (and What You Can Do About Them!)

Woman looking in mirror at wrinkles forming.

When it comes to aging, our faces can often display wrinkles and lines sooner than we’d like. Factors like sun damage, genetics, facial expressions and diet can cause signs of aging to creep up even in our 20s and 30s, and most certainly in our 40s and beyond.

However, thanks to today’s advanced aesthetic industry, wrinkles can be a thing of the past! Keep reading to learn how.

Safe and effective wrinkle treatment

Repetitive facial movements and daily living stress the matrix of collagen in the superficial layer of the skin, causing tissue to lose plumpness and hydration, and causing skin to look dehydrated and wrinkled. And as we age, collagen production lessens, creating more of a need for wrinkle treatments.

Cosmetic injectables like Botox and Dysport along with dermal filler are highly effective for filling in and smoothing wrinkles and replacing precious volume loss in the face. Women and men alike are heading to their plastic surgeon, medical injector and dermatologist’s offices in droves because these procedures are fast and safe. In fact, results from Dysport and Botox are evident in about week while dermal filler results can be near immediate.

Through a few strategically placed injections, our medical aesthetics staff can provide you with smoother, younger-looking skin that looks natural and lasts for months!

Maintenance is key

In addition to returning for Botox and Dysport every 3-4 months and dermal fillers every 6-9 months, many of our patients see the vast benefits of noninvasive procedures like laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels, along with medical-grade skincare. These methods help to keep skin tone and texture its best, free of acne, redness, brown spots, blackheads and enlarged pores.

We are happy to consult with you to discuss your unique skincare issues and goals, as well as the procedures that would best meet your needs. Oftentimes, a combination approach is most effective.
