How to reduce wrinkles

There are many different ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It depends on their location and cause.

  • BOTOX Cosmetic may be used to prevent a wrinkle caused by repetitive muscle movement from getting deeper.
  • Injectable filler materials (e.g., Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse) may be used to temporarily fill wrinkles.
  • Lasers (e.g., carbon dioxide, erbium:YAG) may be used to resurface the skin.
  • Chemical peels and dermabrasion may also be used to resurface the skin.

An evaluation by a physician is necessary to determine which treatments are best for a given patient. Minimizing sun exposure and using sunblock are also important to reduce the development of wrinkles and the risk of developing skin cancer.
