Wrinkles Q & A

Luxe Beauty Now

What are wrinkles?

Wrinkles are folds, creases, or ridges in the skin, resulting in either fine lines on the surface or deep furrows related to muscle contraction. Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process and unwelcome to most people.

What causes wrinkles?

Both natural and environmental factors cause wrinkles, including:

  • Aging
  • Sun and ultraviolet damage
  • Poor nutrition
  • Smoking
  • Genetics
  • Degree of skin pigmentation

What prevents wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, and eventually, everyone will have wrinkles and lines on their skin. You can prevent wrinkles caused through exposure to sunlight, smoking, and alcohol. Wearing clothing and sun protection when outdoors protects the skin from sun-damaging ultraviolet light. Not smoking prevents wrinkles caused by the reduction of blood supply to the skin, which accelerates the aging and wrinkling process. Avoiding alcohol prevents wrinkles caused by the drying effects alcohol has on the skin.

What treatments are available for wrinkles?

Topical wrinkle treatments are most useful for fine lines. Deeper folds and creases may require more invasive procedures, such as:

Chemical Peels

A chemical solution applied to wrinkly areas will cause dead skin to shed and eventually peel off. The newly grown skin is smoother and has fewer wrinkles than the old skin. There are varying levels of chemical peels, depending on the severity of your wrinkles and aesthetic goals.

Filler Injections

Injection of collagen, fat, or hyaluronic acid into deeper face wrinkles can give a smoother appearance and give the skin more volume. Filler treatments can be repeated every few months as needed to maintain results.

Botox

Botox injections prevent muscle contractions to reduce wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines on the forehead. Botox treatments last about three months and can be repeated to maintain results.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Wrinkles can be reduced with laser skin resurfacing, while promoting the production of collagen to reduce sagging skin and fill out wrinkles.
