How to Reduce Wrinkles

Wrinkles and Fine Lines - before
Wrinkles and Fine Lines - After

One of the first visible signs of aging is the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases in the skin. Wrinkles are caused by a number of factors including: genetics, lifestyle, cumulative sun exposure, and repeated facial movements (frowning, smiling, squinting), which ultimately lead to loss of collagen and elasticity in the skin. There are two types of wrinkles:

Dynamic wrinkles occur when muscles contract to form facial expressions. For example, smiling may cause wrinkles around the eye (crow’s feet), while frowning causes vertical lines between the eyebrows.

Static wrinkles are always visible regardless of muscle activity, and appear to be “etched” into the skin. They may appear in areas where repeated muscle activity has occurred, or where skin has lost collagen or been affected by gravity. Some examples of static wrinkles include: horizontal lines across the forehead, vertical lip lines, and smile lines (running along the cheek).

Left untreated, dynamic wrinkles will become static wrinkles which will deepen and become more prominent over time. Fortunately there are wrinkle treatments available that may help diminish wrinkles, restoring a more refreshed and youthful appearance.  These include neuromodulatorsdermal fillers, and laser treatments.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

If you see the lines when your face is at rest, they are considered static wrinkles. Although wrinkle treatment is indicated for active wrinkles, you will likely find that the static lines also improve over time. If your lines are particularly deep and bothersome even after wrinkle treatment, then dermal filler treatment may be an option.

Wrinkle treatment simply relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles, and is intended to create a softer and more refreshed appearance. When performed by an experienced injector, results from your wrinkle treatment will look and feel completely natural.

Wrinkle treatment is indicated for the following areas of the face: frown line, forehead lines, and crows feet. If the lines are on other areas of the face, such as the cheeks, there are other options available that are more suitable. These include laser skin resurfacing and microneedling.

Get plenty of rest. Lack of sleep shows on your face. Wear sunglasses on sunny days - excessive squinting can cause crow's feet. Reduce stress. It can lead to frown and forehead lines. The sun is responsible for 90% of visible skin aging. Therefore, apply broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) EVERY DAY, regardless of the weather. It is a good idea to cover exposed areas of your skin when spending extended periods of time in the sun. If you spend a lot of time in your car, a clear sun-protective screen on your window can be helpful. Studies show that wrinkles and other signs of aging are more prominent on the left side of face due to the amount of time we spend driving.

Retinol is a gold-standard ingredient that is clinically proven to improve wrinkles and photodamage. It works by increasing cellular turnover, leading to healthier and younger-looking skin. Retinol can be found in many products, however only medical grade products contain the concentration of retinol necessary to generate impressive results. Of course, daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is absolutely necessary in order to obtain maximum results of any retinol product.
