Wrinkle Reduction

As we age, our bodies begin to slow down collagen production. As a result, the skin starts to lose its ability to ‘bounce back’ in place and, over time, permanent wrinkles begin to set in. Environmental factors–particularly the cumulative effects of daily exposure to the sun–also influence the skin’s appearance. Ultraviolet (UV) rays can accelerate the formation of fine lines, as well as lead to uneven skin tone (sun spots and hyperpigmentation). Stress, smoking and lifestyle can further take a toll on the skin’s health.

Most of us start to see the first signs of aging on the areas most exposed to the sun: the face, the neck, and the hands. On the face, wrinkles often start to appear around the eyes and mouth, beginning as fine lines and progressively becoming more prominent.

Popular Treatments for Wrinkles

Although it is impossible to stop the clock, there are many safe and effective treatments recommended by Dr. Delgado. The goal of wrinkle and skin renewal treatments is to inhibit the development of new lines and regain some of the skin’s resilience.

  • Injectable neurotoxin treatments such as Botox and Dysport can smooth out creases and dynamic wrinkles–those wrinkles caused by the movements of the face. Neurotoxins temporarily relax the underlying facial muscles, which in turn can smooth out and moderate the appearance of expression lines. Excellent for addressing furrowed brows and forehead wrinkles, neurotoxins are the most popular anti-aging aesthetic treatment in the United States.
  • Temporary dermal fillers, another minimally-invasive injectable treatment, are widely used to plump and add volume to depleted areas. Dermal fillers rely on different active agents, such as hyaluronic acid, a lubricating substance naturally found in the body, to volumize and reduce the visibility of wrinkles.
  • Laser technology is another popular treatment for wrinkles. Unlike injectables, laser technology uses light energy to penetrate the skin and stimulate the formation of new collagen, which restores the skin’s structure and tightens the skin.
