Wrinkles occur in the skin as a result of volume loss that occurs with weight loss, normal aging, or breakdown of collagen from long-term sun exposure. Facial wrinkles can also be seen as a result of animation or facial expressions where facial muscles create creases or wrinkles in the skin.
There are many ways to treat wrinkle and include skin tightening, resurfacing, increasing volume with injectable hyaluronic acids, relaxing certain facial muscles with neurotoxins (Botox, Newtox, or Dysport), or medium depth chemical peels. Procedure selection is determined by the depth and extend of wrinkles. For some, a combination of procedures is recommended.
