Crepey skin

Wrinkles are creases and folds in the skin that develop from aging. Crepey skin refers to thin, wrinkled skin, similar in appearance to crepe paper.

Wrinkles & Crepey Skin

Wrinkles and crepey skin are most commonly found around the cheeks, eyes, neck, hands, arms, and legs. As you age, your body produces less collagen, elastins, and oils, creating saggy and wrinkly looking skin. Our physicians approach wrinkles and crepe-like skin with expertise in every modern approach. Our strategies include laser resurfacing to build collagen, dermal fillers to correct lost youthful volume, and either Botox® or Dysport® for the treatment of wrinkles that result from excessive muscle contraction.

Many patients find that a combination approach offers the best results for them. We can usually perform multiple treatments in a single session, offering an optimal outcome in just one appointment. Wrinkle treatment is a safe and effective way to achieve and maintain youthful, radiant skin.

Questions and Answers

Q: What Ingredients Should Be In My Moisturizer?

A: Moisturizers should contain antioxidants, retinoids, alpha-hydroxy acids, and beta hydroxy acids to keep your skin looking fresh. 

Antioxidants. Vitamins C and E help to repair cellular damage.

Retinoids (vitamin A derivatives). These turn skin cell layers over faster, leaving your skin fresher, smoother, and more evenly pigmented. These products tend to be drying to the skin; we recommend using a pea-sized amount to cover the entire face. Retinoids can be found over-the-counter or in prescription strengths.

Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (“AHAs”). These are similar to retinoids and have the same anti-aging benefits, but they generally are less drying and better tolerated. Glycolic acid, lactic acid, and hyaluronic acid are the most common.

Beta Hydroxy Acids. Salicylic acid is the most common.

Q: How Can I Avoid Wrinkles?

A: Limiting exposure to UV radiation is the most preventable way to limit sun damage to your skin. Our dermatologists recommend wearing sunscreen and moisturizer daily, as well as wearing sun-protective clothing, to protect your skin. It is also best to stay out of the sun as much as possible.
