Wrinkle Removal Q & A

Glendale Eye Medical Group

What are wrinkles?

A wrinkle is an area of your skin that creases, folds, or forms a fine or deep line. They typically show up as people get older.

Not all wrinkles are created equal. In general, there are two main categories of wrinkles:

  • Dynamic wrinkles: wrinkles that form due to repeated movements over time. Smile lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet are examples of dynamic wrinkles.
  • Static wrinkles: constantly visible wrinkles when your face is at rest. Static wrinkles include lines at the corners of the mouth, neck wrinkles, lip lines, and marionette lines.

What causes wrinkles?

The main culprits of wrinkling skin are:

  • Sun and wind damage
  • Repetitive tanning
  • Sleeping position
  • Loss of collagen and elastin
  • Smoking
  • Decreased oil production to keep skin moist
  • Loss of facial fat due to aging
  • Breakdown of skin’s connective fibers over time

How does aging contribute to the formation of wrinkles?

Aging is a fact of life, and wrinkles are too. Each person gets wrinkles due to an array of variables such as genetics, skin care routines, and sun exposure.

There are, however, some common reasons that most people get wrinkles as they get older. As your skin ages, you produce less and less collagen, which causes the skin to thin and lose elasticity.

Over time, skin cell turnover declines, fat under the skin recedes, and skin becomes drier and more fragile. These biological changes lead to wrinkles, creases, and lines in your skin.

What types of treatments are available to remove wrinkles?

Your wrinkles can be improved with one or a combination of the many effective wrinkle removal treatments offered at Glendale Eye Medical Group. Proven protocols include:

  • Microdermabrasion to even your skin tone and texture

  • Dermal fillers to plump and volumize
  • Retinoids to boost elasticity and thickness of the skin
  • Ultrasound therapy to tighten skin
