Wrinkles Q & A
What causes wrinkles?
Wrinkles are lines that appear on your skin that are caused or exacerbated by a variety of factors, including:
- Dry weather
- Exposure to the sun
- Environmental pollutants
- Excessive repeated facial expressions over time
How can I prevent wrinkles?
There are ways you can prevent or reduce the development of wrinkles, such as:
- Keeping your skin moisturized
- Quitting smoking
- Limiting alcohol intake, since it can dehydrate your body and skin
- Restricting sugar intake, since it enhances a scientific process called glycation
- Staying hydrated and drinking plenty of water
- Achieving the delicate balance of maintaining your vitamin D, but avoiding overexposure to the sun
- Improving your sleep quality and getting at least seven to eight hours sleep every night
What treatments are available to reduce wrinkles?
Dr. Chin offers numerous treatments for wrinkle reduction:
Cosmetic fillers are a popular and effective quick-fix that work in a variety of ways.
Some promote collagen production, some block the signals between nerves and muscles and temporarily cause muscles to weaken and relax, and some inject a natural substance called hyaluronic acid under your skin to enhance volume.
Dr. Chin provides RADIESSE®, Juvederm®, BOTOX®, Restylane®, and Dysport® fillers.
Microneedling involves the use of tiny pins that poke miniature holes in your skin to prompt your body’s natural healing response and collagen production. This produces a more plump, smooth, and youthful-looking appearance that reduces wrinkles.
Microneedling yields long-lasting results. Dr. Chin provides Fractura®, a procedure that combines laser resurfacing and microneedling.
Laser skin resurfacing
Laser resurfacing uses precise, controlled, gentle heat and laser energy to promote the growth of collagen and new skin. Laser procedures are quick, safe, and virtually painless. A topical anesthetic or numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort.
Dr. Chin provides AcuPulse® CO2 laser system.
Dr. Chin devises customized treatment plans for each patient and in many cases, he recommends multiple different treatments used in succession.
