A wrinkle is a fold or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically result from age, genetic predisposition and most importantly sun damage. Smoking, dry skin, excessive motion, poor hydration, and several other factors may contribute. Although there are numerous topical options on the market, few have any significant effect compared to in-office treatments. Contrary to popular belief, a facelift does not treat wrinkles, only loose skin. There are several non-surgical treatments using injectable fillers and laser treatments to dramatically improve their appearance.
Two types of wrinkles occur as we age.
Fillers such as Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane, Belotero and Juvederm as well as reinjection of your own body fat – fat transfer, are used to fill the lines and hollows that are due to static or stationery wrinkles. Fillers can also be used to restore volume or lift the skin for a facelift type effect. This non-surgical treatment is called a Liquid Facelift.
For a few decades now, lasers have been used to resurface wrinkles on the face and body. Currently, the state of the art technology is Fractional Skin Resurfacing. At Cosmetic Laser MD we use the CO2RE Fractional CO2 Resurfacing laser or eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation.

There is no best treatment for wrinkles. Depending on the patient, the area and severity of the wrinkle, one or a combination of treatments is usually suggested. A consultation with Dr Tanne will help determine which treatment options are best for you.
