Wrinkle Treatments Q & A

Why do wrinkles develop?

Wrinkles are a regular part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them as an unavoidable consequence of growing older. As you age, your skin becomes thinner and has less moisture and elasticity.

At the same time, you also begin to lose the layer of collagen and fat that lies just beneath your skin, which is what creates a full and youthful face. Those changes combine to create facial folds and wrinkles.

While you can’t prevent all wrinkles, you can certainly take steps to slow the process and preserve healthy skin. The most crucial step is protecting your skin from UV exposure, ideally from a very young age. If you smoke, find a cessation program that works for you.

How do dermal fillers help with wrinkles?

Dermal fillers, such as and Belotero®, are gel-like solutions made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. Radiesse® is another type of injectable filler, made from another naturally-occurring material called calcium hydroxylapatite.

Dr. Warren injects the gel into the targeted areas to create more volume and fullness, leaving you looking rested and youthful. Botox® is another injectable treatment option to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

You can use dermal fillers to smooth wrinkles above your lips, beside your eyes, on your chin, or along your nose and mouth. Some dermal fillers can even make your lips appear naturally fuller.

The effects last for months, and additional treatments can extend the results. When considering dermal fillers, it’s essential to choose a specialist who has extensive experience in these types of procedures. Administering dermal fillers is as much of an art as it’s a science, and Dr. Felicity Warren has the expertise to determine optimal placement and volume.

What are some other wrinkle treatments?

The right skin care products can go a long way toward preventing and improving the appearance of wrinkles. Dr. Felicity Warren offers a range of top-quality professional products you can use at home. NeoCutis® and GlyDerm® are just two of the available options.

If you’re looking for a way to quickly remove layers of dead skin and reveal a smoother, glowing complexion, a chemical peel might be a great approach. The peels Dr. Felicity Warren uses are medical-grade and formulated to provide excellent results without harming your skin.

Dr. Felicity Warren also offers Fraxel® laser resurfacing. This non-ablative laser treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. It also helps smooth skin and improve areas of discoloration.
