Wrinkles Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles form when your body begins producing less collagen, leading to reduced skin elasticity. As you age, you may notice an increase in lines, creases, and deep wrinkles in your face, neck, and hands. While everybody gets wrinkles at some point, certain factors can speed up the process, including:

Sun exposure

Ultraviolet radiation, or UV light, breaks down the connective tissue in your skin. As a result, sun exposure is one of the most common causes of premature wrinkles.

Smoking

Tobacco products contain carcinogens and nicotine that can negatively impact the collagen fibers in your skin. This can cause premature wrinkling and exacerbate existing wrinkles.

Certain facial expressions

Repeated muscle movements in the face, such as smiling or frowning, can lead to lasting wrinkles and deep creases.

Genetics

Genetics plays a vital role in your skin’s natural elasticity. You’re also more likely to develop wrinkles in the same areas — i.e. nasolabial folds or crow’s feet — as your close relatives.

How can I prevent wrinkles?

The earlier you begin a proper skin regimen, the healthier your skin will look as you age. Total Patient Care LLC offers pharmaceutical-grade skin care products by Avène®, Rodan + Fields®, and Glytone® to protect your skin against damage. To prevent new wrinkles and soften existing lines, the team recommends:

Sunscreen

Protecting your skin against the sun is the best way to prevent wrinkles and other skin damage, such as age spots and hyperpigmentation. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends the regular use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. You can also protect your skin by wearing wide-brimmed hats and protective clothing whenever you’re outside.

Moisturizer

Hydrating moisturizers trap water in your skin to protect against wrinkles and hide existing lines.

Diet

A healthy diet full of colorful fruits and vegetables infuses your skin with a variety of important vitamins and minerals that protect against skin damage.

How can I treat wrinkles?

Total Patient Care LLC performs several nonsurgical treatments to fight wrinkles and stop new creases from developing, such as:

Skin rejuvenation

The team offers several skin rejuvenation treatments that can improve the tone and texture of your skin while strengthening collagen fibers. They use the Cynosure® Icon™ 1540 laser therapy and MaxG™ OPL to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
