Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

by Pamela J. Stuart, MD

How does aging cause wrinkles?

Everyone ages at a different rate due to variables like skin care, genetics, exposure to sunlight — which significantly damages skin — and other environmental factors. However, all skin goes through similar changes.

As it ages, skin becomes thinner, while muscles that support the skin lose tone. Less collagen and elastin are produced, which means skin loses strength and elasticity. Over time, skin dries out, and the underlying layer of fat diminishes. All of these changes work together to cause fine lines and wrinkles.

What injectable treatments diminish wrinkles and fight aging?

Dr. Stuart offers a variety of treatments to fight wrinkles and aging, but many patients get the results they need with injectable treatments such as Botox® and dermal fillers.

Botox: FDA-approved botulinum toxin is injected into facial muscles, making the muscles relax, which diminishes moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.

Juvéderm®: A gel-like dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, it’s a substance that naturally adds moisture and volume to your skin. Juvéderm treats fine lines and wrinkles on your face, especially around your nose and mouth.

Juvéderm® Voluma XC: This dermal filler targets the cheek area, adding volume and lift that can last up to 2 years.

Restylane®: Restylane products are hyaluronic acid fillers that also contain small particles to add fullness. They’re used to diminish facial wrinkles and folds, enhance lips, and add volume to cheeks.
