• Wrinkles are visible creases in the skin.  They are associated with aging changes in skin.  Frequent exposure to sunshine results in premature skin wrinkling.  Exposure to cigarette smoke is another factor that increases wrinkling of the skin.

    We utilize many treatments to aid in the restoration of the skin and the reduction of wrinkles.  Botox®, skin-care products, collagen injection, Photorejuvenation, and laser resurfacing have shown very positive results in our practice. One of the newest technologies, ThermaCoolTM, also aids in the reduction of wrinkles and the growth of collagen.

In the course of treating acne scars with a lasers, surgeons noticed that after resurfacing the skin around the scar to make the scar less visible, small adjacent wrinkles were greatly diminished. Advances in carbon dioxide laser technology have made skin rejuvenation with the CO2 laser a reality. Lasers work by emitting a powerful beam of light, which causes a superficial burn of the skin.
