Wrinkles Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

The aging process is the main culprit for wrinkles and spots. With age, your skin loses smoothness and elasticity and takes longer to heal from cuts and bruises. Wrinkles and age spots also begin to appear.

Other factors can speed up the process, too. These include:

  • Excess alcohol
  • Poor diet
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Sun exposure

How can I prevent wrinkles?

The aging process is unstoppable, but you can nurture and protect your skin daily. In fact, you can keep it healthy and vibrant throughout your life with vigilant maintenance.

Good skin care begins in childhood and lasts a lifetime. Tips for healthy skin include:

  • Don’t smoke: Smoking damages collagen and elastin, sapping the skin’s elasticity.
  • Go easy on your skin: Harsh cleansers products strip skin of important moisture and aggravate existing skin conditions.
  • Use sun protection: To prevent sun damage, use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 all year round.
  • Eat right: A well-balanced diet provides vitamins and nutrients to support your entire body.
  • Relieve stress: Stress has been shown to increase breakouts and acne flare-ups.

Can wrinkles be reversed?

A healthy lifestyle and dedicated skin care regimen can keep your skin looking its best. Still, fine lines will appear eventually. Dr. Kim treats the signs of aging with three non-invasive, clinically-proven procedures to rejuvenate your skin and slow down the effects of time.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Kim injects BOTOX Cosmetic prescription medication directly into your muscles to soften the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. The procedure only takes around ten minutes, and results appear within 24 to 48 hours.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm fillers are clear gels made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in skin that gives it volume and softness. Juvéderm injections are painless.   Results are visible immediately and last as long as one to two years.

Xeomin®

Xeomin® is another prescription medication used to add volume to moderate to severe frown lines in adults. Dr. Kim injects Xeomin directly into the forehead muscles that cause frown lines. Around three days after your Xeomin injection you’ll begin to see results that last up to three months or more.

Dr. Kim chooses safe procedures and products offering subtle yet noticeable results. Call or click to schedule a cosmetic treatment consultation at Brighton Family Medicine today.
