“Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.”-Mark Twain

As wonderful as this thought is, fine lines and wrinkles probably don’t make you feel like smiling. They may have cute names like bunny lines (wrinkles on the bridge of your nose) or crow’s feet (wrinkles on the outside corners of your eyes). But for many people, wrinkles are no laughing matter – and that’s where Asarch Dermatology comes in.

If you don’t like how wrinkles impact your appearance, or want to hold them off for as long as possible, the skin care experts at Asarch Dermatology offer a wide range of anti-aging treatment options to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Whether you choose surgical or non-surgical treatment, we’ll create a customized plan just for you.

How do wrinkles form?

Wrinkles are a natural part of your body’s aging process. As you get older, your skin loses elasticity – starting in your 30s, you lose about 1% of your collagen each year. Your skin also becomes drier and thinner. Add the loss of fat that occurs as you age, and wrinkles become even more visible.

Repetitive facial movements that crease your skin (such as smiling, frowning, or squinting) can also form wrinkles over time.

Preventative measures to ward off wrinkles

Whatever some products or other dermatologists may promise, there’s no way to eliminate all wrinkles entirely. But there are some preventative measures you can take to help delay and lessen them:

  • Stay out of the sun – The sun’s rays often accelerate signs of aging. Apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more to any skin that isn’t covered by clothing.
  • No indoor tanning beds – Tanning beds also expose you to harmful UV rays that can accelerate the aging process.
  • Avoid smoking and heavy drinking – Smoking slows down your production of collagen, while heavy drinking dehydrates aging skin even further.
  • Moisturize often – Regular moisturizing traps water in your skin, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.Use the right anti-aging products – Using too many anti-aging products on your skin, or the wrong combination of products, can do more harm than good. Ask your Asarch dermatologist what skin care products are best for you.

Surgical anti-aging treatment options

Asarch Dermatology offers many surgical options to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, including:

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are products injected into your skin to fill or lift skin with deep wrinkles. For instance, JUVÉDERM® XC is the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe wrinkles around your nose and mouth for up to one year with optimal treatment.


Ever since the FDA approved BOTOX® for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles, BOTOX injections have remained the world’s most popular cosmetic procedure year after year. BOTOX effectively erases fine lines and wrinkles on the upper third of your face (the part of your face that makes expressions like frowning or squinting) for about four months.

Facelift and neck lift

A facelift involves surgically lifting your skin to tighten the underlying muscles and tissues. (A neck lift is often done at the same time.) The goal is to improve the look of your jawline, neck, and lower face, which includes smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

Non-surgical anti-aging treatment options

For those who prefer to avoid needles or surgery, Asarch Dermatology offers many non-surgical options as well, such as:

Prescription creams and serums

Your Asarch dermatologist may prescribe an anti-wrinkle cream or serum with prescription-strength retinoids – an ingredient derived from vitamin A – to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Retinoids penetrate deep into your skin’s layers, activating both collagen and elastin.

Chemical peels

A chemical peel helps dissolve skin imperfections by using small amounts of a chemical solution to remove the top layers of your skin, making room for smoother, healthier skin to grow back in its place. Chemical peels are a popular option for treating wrinkles, skin discoloration, scars, and more.

Laser resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is a general term for facial rejuvenation procedures that use laser energy to improve your skin’s appearance. The laser penetrates through the top layer of skin and delivers high-intensity beams of light to the targeted area, removing imperfections on the surface. For example, fractional laser treatments can minimize fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, forehead, or mouth.

When to see a dermatologist

When at-home remedies don’t work, consider visiting one of our board-certified dermatologists for a cosmetic consultation. Anti-aging treatments not only give your skin a more youthful look, but they can also do wonders for your self-esteem.
