The lines and wrinkles that form on our faces can be a daily source of frustration. Why do we get facial wrinkles in the first place and how can we best treat them?

Facial wrinkles form due to two main factors: changes in the skin and repeated muscle use. Repetitive use of facial muscles creases the overlying skin instead of allowing it to stay smooth and flat.

Changes in the skin come about as a result of environmental factors such as sun exposure, pollutants, and smoking, along with genetic factors and the aging process. These factors cause damage to the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers. With age comes a loss of fat and skin thickness.

To address shallow, moderate, and deep facial wrinkles, we offer a wide variety of solutions. Our surgical options include the mid-facelift, forehead lift, and blepharoplasty to remove wrinkles in specific locations of the face.

Our non-surgical options include muscle relaxants such as Botox and Dysport to relax contracted muscles, and fillers or fat transfer injections to restore skin volume. Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels will reduce wrinkles and eradicate sun damage.
