What is wrinkle reduction?

Wrinkle reduction services can minimize the folds and creases in your skin. While everyone can expect to see at least a few wrinkles on their skin as they get older, you have some control over them with advanced wrinkle treatments at Comprehensive Dermatology. 

The team evaluates your skin’s laxity and reviews your medical history when you first visit for a wrinkle reduction consultation. They can then determine which types of wrinkles you have and which treatments are most appropriate for meeting your goals. 

How do wrinkles form?

Most people are aware that wrinkles happen because of aging. The process is more complex than you might realize, and there are multiple factors that contribute to wrinkle formation. Your skin loses collagen (a firming protein) and elastin (a protein that keeps your skin tight) as you get older. 

Some common factors that can increase wrinkles are:

Ultraviolet (UV) damage

UV damage can come from the sun itself or from artificial UV light sources like tanning beds. You can minimize UV damage by wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen.


Smoking can increase damage to your skin’s collagen, which is why a lifetime smoking habit frequently leads to more wrinkles than you would get otherwise. 

Repeated facial expressions

Some wrinkles, called dynamic wrinkles, form in places where your skin creases when you make facial expressions — common examples are crow’s feet, frown lines, and bunny lines. 

Your genetics can also partially determine the amount of wrinkles you get and when you develop them. 

What are my options for wrinkle reduction?

Comprehensive Dermatology offers many cosmetic treatments that can smooth the creases in your skin. Some treatments increase cell turnover, while others strengthen the collagen and elastin in your skin. A few work by inhibiting the muscle movements that create dynamic wrinkles. 

Your options for wrinkle reduction include:

  • Laser treatments
  • Dermal fillers
  • Botox® 
  • Chemical peels
  • Retinoids

All of these options are non-surgical and provide natural-looking results. Surgeries like face and neck lifts can also reduce wrinkles but often take a lot of preparation and have additional risks.
