Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is a natural part of the aging process. This is due to a decrease in the production of elastin and collagen — elements of your skin that keep the skin looking supple and firm.

As the elasticity of your skin diminishes, the skin stretches and sags. This sagging causes the most visible layer of the skin to develop creases, lines, and wrinkles. Once these wrinkles appear, they won’t disappear on their own.

What other factors contribute to the appearance of wrinkles?

Besides aging, several factors can contribute to the premature formation or worsening of wrinkles and fine lines.

These factors may include:

  • Unhealthy eating
  • Unprotected sun exposure
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Heredity
  • Hormonal changes

A healthy lifestyle can make a big difference in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Healthy eating, abstaining from smoking, and protecting your skin from the sun can help keep your skin healthy and younger-looking.

What treatments are available to reduce the appearance of wrinkles?

Alabama Vein & Restoration Medspa is proud to offer a wide range of services to give you a more youthful appearance. These services include a variety of methods to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

BotoxⓇ and DysportⓇ

These injections prevent the contraction of muscles underlying your skin, making the skin on top of the muscle appear smoother.


The Juvéderm family of dermal fillers is a line of injectable gels that fill in and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. There are several formulations of this treatment, depending on which area of the face you want to treat.

Dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels

These treatments each use slightly different methods to remove the top layer of skin, which softens wrinkles and diminishes fine lines.

Laser treatments

Laser treatments, like those delivered using the Icon™ Aesthetic System, help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by heating the underlying skin layer to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production.

After a consultation and examination of your skin, the team helps determine the best course of treatment for your specific skin concerns. A combination of treatments may be needed to achieve your goals.
