Wrinkle Removal Techniques

OVERVIEW

As you grow older, your body loses its ability to produce as much collagen as it once did. Your skin cells also divide at a slower rate, changing its structure and thinning. Wrinkles are a part of this aging process.

If you don't like the look of your wrinkles, your dermatologist can help. Read on to find out about the best wrinkle removal techniques and therapies.

What are Wrinkles?

When your skin loses its moisture, elasticity and starts to produce less oil, wrinkles are an inevitable outcome. They're a normal part of aging that can happen anywhere on your body, including your face, neck, and the backs of your hands.

Wrinkles can be categorized as:

  • fine lines
  • deep furrows

What are the Causes of Wrinkles?

While wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process as we get older, they can occur due to different factors such as:

  • Exposure to the sun
  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Certain facial expressions

Treatment for the Removal of Wrinkles is Safe When Performed by a Board-Certified Dermatologist

Treatment for wrinkles can include over-the-counter creams and lotions. However, if you want lasting results, seeing a board-certified dermatologist can help. Common treatments to remove wrinkles include:

  • Prescription-strength creams
    This can include retinoids which contain vitamin A and can not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles but improve skin texture and treat acne as well.

  • Dermabrasion
    This procedure involves scraping away layers of your skin to leave you with a more youthful-looking appearance. This treatment requires downtime before the results can be seen.

  • Laser resurfacing
    Laser therapy is known to stimulate the production of collagen by heating the dermis and evening out your skin's texture.

  • Botox
    Botox injections target muscles, making them relax and ease the appearance of wrinkles, especially around your eyes, forehead, and mouth.

  • Fillers
    Cosmetic fillers and injectables work by smoothing wrinkles and softening the skin. While you may experience instant results, some, like collagen fillers, stimulate the body's collagen production and take a gradual amount of time for results to be seen.
