Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Your skin does a great job protecting you from foreign bacteria and the elements, but in its role, it can take a beating. Throw in the natural aging process, and you begin to understand that there are a lot of contributors to aging, wrinkling skin, especially on your face, which is one of the most exposed areas of skin on your body.

The first culprit in aging skin is a slow-down in the production of collagen, which is responsible for the elasticity and tone in your skin. Second, the layer of fat begins to disappear beneath your skin and migrate downward, leaving your skin looking hollowed and sunken. Third, after years of exposure, your skin cells begin to break down, and your body doesn’t replenish them as it once did, allowing your skin to wrinkle.

How are wrinkles treated?

To fight back against wrinkles, Dr. Gonzales has a full arsenal of anti-aging and wrinkle reduction treatments, including:

Neuromodulators

With brand names like Botox® and Xeomin®, Dr. Gonzales is able to reduce moderate to severe lines around your eyes, brows, and forehead.

Dermal fillers

To address deep lines on the lower half of your face, Dr. Gonzales turns to dermal fillers to restore volume and erase wrinkles.

Icon® laser treatments

Using the Icon laser, Dr. Gonzales delivers laser energy beneath your skin to encourage more collagen production, smoothing out your wrinkles.

Microdermabrasion

This technique clears away dead skin to pave the way for more youthful skin growth.

TempSure®

Using radiofrequency energy, Dr. Gonzales uses TempSure to promote new collagen production for firmer, more toned skin.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

Dr. Gonzales isolates the platelets in your blood, which contain growth factors, and re-injects them into your skin to promote healthy new skin growth.

How do I know which wrinkle reduction technique is right for me?
