Wrinkles are a normal, natural part of life but that doesn’t mean we have to live with them as-is. There are many ways to get rid of wrinkles. The key, however, it so make sure you have the help of a professional dermatologist in order to make sure the results last.
What causes wrinkles?
To learn how to get rid of wrinkles, you first have to understand how they’re formed in the first place.
Wrinkles are a result of your skin losing elasticity, a reduction in collagen production, and increase in dryness. As you age, your skin cells are not as efficient at replacing themselves and this can lead to sagging, creases, and lines on the skin.
Environmental factors like smoking, sun exposure, and even gravity can wear on your skin overtime. Genetics also play a role in causing wrinkles.
How to get rid of wrinkles
Getting rid of wrinkles requires help from a professional as well as treatments that can not only prevent aging in the first place, but repair skin that has already been subject to early signs of aging.
This includes fillers, skin treatments like anti-aging facials, peels, microneedling, and more.
Here are our top recommended wrinkle treatments to turn back the hands of time.
Wrinkle treatments that work
Here at Dermatology Associates of La Grange, we have a wide range of different wrinkle treatments that work to reduce signs of aging and give you back the skin you had years ago.
These are some wrinkle treatments we offer along with where and how they work to reduce signs of aging.
Botox for Wrinkles
Botox is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It’s injected into the muscles surrounding the eyes, forehead, and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck.
Made from a purified protein, Botox relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look. Not related to wrinkles, Botox may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
Juvederm Voluma is a non-surgical injection composed of a hyaluronic acid filler. This is a naturally occurring substance found in your body and it’s used to lift and treat your face in areas such as your cheeks, chin, and lips.
Juvederm Voluma specifically aids in the cheek area and increasing fullness and volume where it can become hollow and sagging over time.

The MicroLaserPeel is an intra-epidermal laser peel that precisely ablates the outermost layers of the skin. This procedure can be individually tailored to the skin condition being corrected. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and deeper wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, and sun damage.
For individuals looking for more dramatic results than microdermabrasion or light chemical peel, and who have time for a prolonged healing process, a MicroLaserPeel™ may be the perfect treatment. A MicroLaserPeel™ goes deeper than just traditional microdermabrasion, which makes it the perfect step between microdermabrasion and full skin resurfacing. We can tailor the laser to meet each individual’s goals, and address their concerns on an individual basis.
Profractional™ is a laser procedure used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The Profractional™ uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin, which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin.
The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars, and other irregularities.
Exilis for Wrinkles
Exilis offers a revolutionary non-invasive form of treatment for the reduction of wrinkles and for the reshaping of targeted fat deposits.
Exilis further provides fast and effective skin tightening, as well as treatment of wrinkles and rhytids, with visible results often after the first session.
Restylane is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body.
The most common areas for treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane remains in your skin for many months.
Dysport for Wrinkles
Dysport Cosmetic is an alternative to Botox Cosmetic. It smooths away lines and wrinkles on the face that occur from dynamic muscle contraction.
Dysport relaxes the facial muscles that can cause wrinkles in the brow, forehead and around the eyes, making one look worried, or appear angry or tired. The result is a more relaxed, approachable appearance that allows you to be more confident and feel better about yourself.
Radiesse is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. Composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, Radiesse is made from the same minerals found in our bones. Radiesse® can be used on many areas of the body, including the lips, nasolabial folds, peri-oral lines, depressed scars and oral commissures.
A dermal filler as unique as you are, this product is specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your facial contours. It softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for a smooth and natural result.
Microdermabrasion for Wrinkles
Microdermabrasion improves mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems. A gentle stream of tiny particles exfoliates the outer layer of skin and provides a fresh, glowing, younger appearance.
Results are comparable to a light chemical peel and should be immediately visible. Microdermabrasion is often performed in conjunction with other skin renewal procedures, such as laser treatment and chemical peels. Multiple treatments are recommended for full effect.
