Wrinkles Q&A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles result when the skin’s elasticity begins to wane with time or when the skin has been compressed or stretched repeatedly in the same way, as with smiling, frowning, or other habitual expressions.

Certain factors like sun damage, poor diet, or lifestyle factors like smoking can cause your skin to age more quickly. If you want to better understand your skin’s specific needs and how you can protect it, talking to an experienced dermatologist is the best place to start.

Are invasive procedures required to combat wrinkles?

No. Prevention and gentle care can make a marked difference with wrinkles, and it’s never too late to find a routine that works for you.

The board-certified providers at Shady Grove Dermatology can help you find the best skin care for you, even if you have dry or sensitive skin. They can also help you strategize ways to avoid sun damage, which primarily contributes to untimely wrinkles.

What skin therapies can help with my wrinkles?

In addition to helping you design a health regimen for at-home care, the expert team can provide professional treatments for targeted results. After carefully evaluating your skin and discussing your goals, your provider may recommend:

Chemical peels

Chemical peels promote healthy cell turnover by removing dead skin cells and revealing the brighter skin beneath. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other blemishes.


While sometimes confused with chemical peels, facials are extremely customizable treatments that may utilize gentle steam cleansing, serums, moisturizers, and massage to exfoliate and renew your skin’s glow.


You may have heard of microdermabrasion’s powerful impact on acne or blemishes, but this exfoliating treatment can also have excellent wrinkle-fighting effects.

Laser therapy

By stimulating the growth of structural proteins like collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, laser therapy can reduce a variety of skin issues, including wrinkles.

The board-certified dermatologists at Shady Grove Dermatology emphasize quality care every step of the way and are always happy to review your skin care options to keep you as informed as possible.
