Wrinkles Q & A

What causes fine lines and wrinkles?

Wrinkles occur in aging skin. As you get older, your body produces less structural compounds, such as elastin and collagen, that keep your skin firm and lifted. Fat underneath your skin also starts to diminish, causing the skin to sag. This loss of fat also means the muscles cause wrinkles to sit closer to the skin surface, making wrinkles more obvious. 

Certain lifestyle habits accelerate the formation of these creases and lines, including:

  • Smoking, which speeds up your skin’s natural aging process
  • Sun exposure, which breaks down the connective tissue in your skin
  • Poor diet and environmental exposure, which exposes your skin to certain chemicals and pollutants that hasten aging

How does Botox® reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles?

Botox temporarily lessens the appearance of wrinkles that appear on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. The injectable medication temporarily halts muscle movements that cause wrinkles to appear. Mild-to-moderate wrinkles smooth out so you look more youthful.

The effects of Botox last up to four months, after which maintenance sessions will be needed to stay wrinkle free.

How do dermal fillers affect wrinkling?

Dermal fillers, such as the Juvéderm® line of products, plump your skin to fill in lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm has a variety of formulations to fight wrinkles such as:

  • Smoker’s lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Crow’s feet

Discuss your aging concerns to determine which Juvederm products are right for you. After being injected, you see the results of Juvéderm immediately and continue to enjoy them for one to two years. To learn about your options for treating fine line and wrinkles, call the office or request an appointment using the online tool.
