What Causes Wrinkles?
Wrinkles. They come in all shapes and sizes. What others see as tiny crinkles may appear to be the Grand Canyon in our magnifying makeup mirrors. Deep furrows can burrow even deeper with time and frowning. Sharp lines and broad depressions appear as a result of the sun, facial expressions and stress. Some come and go with movement. At first, they begin to leave first a tiny etching but with time a more pronounced permanent line develops. Some wrinkles improve even as we lament weight gain, only to get magnified when we manage to whittle away those extra pounds. No two wrinkles are alike, even on opposite sides of our face. The UV damage on the driving side often makes the left side worse and sleeping on our side often exaggerates lines due to chronic pressure. Fortunately today we have weapons to turn back the clock on wrinkles; the big ones, the little ones and everything in between.
How do you Prevent or Correct Wrinkles?
Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport) are the weapon of choice for wrinkles caused by movement. Furrows between the brows, crinkles in the crow’s feet, and lines across the forehead can be softened or eliminated. It is best to start Botox when you begin to see a line at rest. If you wait until the lines are truly etched in, they are much more difficult to improve.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane) are the paintbrush our physicians use to erase many wrinkles. Finer fillers like Juvederm Volbella/Juvederm Ultra, as well as Restylane Silk/Restylane Refyne can be used for lip and smile lines and crows feet, while heavier fillers like Juvederm Ultra Plus/Juvederm Vollure and Restylane Defyne can be used for the creases from nose to corners of lips and down (nasolabial folds and marionettes). Results are natural looking, and the fillers increase collagen in the area, improving skin quality. Only our board-certified dermatologists inject Botox, Dysport and fillers in our practice.
Krauss Dermatology is a Top 500 volume injector of Botox® and Juvederm Fillers out of 30,000 cosmetic offices in the U.S..
Lasers and light-based devices like Fraxel, Intense Pulsed Light Photorejuvenation, and Clear and Brilliant improve color, texture, tone and the finest of lines giving an overall less crinkled appearance. They are not a treatment for deeper lines.
Lastly, the proper medical grade skincare can help improve the skin you have and prevent damage and collagen loss in the future.
