Wrinkles/Fine Line Treatments
What Causes Wrinkles/Fine Lines?
As we age, our skin develops wrinkles and fine lines. Wrinkles can be dynamic (from facial movements) or static (due to aging and collagen loss).
Over time, the collagen in our skin starts to break down, which impacts the skin’s elasticity abilities, causing fine lines and wrinkles. The most commonly targeted for an improvement in skin aesthetics are dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles. Lines with movement are called dynamic wrinkles. For example, a person who may be frustrated often could be making certain facial expressions like raising the eyebrows or squinting the eyes, resulting in frown lines around the eyebrows or crow's feet by the eyes. What's happening is that these muscles are constantly being contracted, thus resulting in dynamic wrinkles.
On the other hand, static wrinkles are different from dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are noticeable at all times, even while the face rests. They emerge from sun damage, strong facial muscular contractions, aging and lifestyle. Static wrinkles can appear in different forms, like fine lines and folds, and most commonly occur in some places, like the cheeks or jawline. These wrinkles are best referred to as a natural aspect of aging. With the gradual use of neuromodulators such as Botox, the injections can work towards smoothing the skin while preventing new lines from forming.

At MD Skin Lab, we strive to offer tailored solutions for addressing Wrinkles/Fine Lines that encourage vibrant and well-nurtured skin.
Are you looking for a non-invasive solution to prevent or treat wrinkles? Anti-wrinkle injections are here to help! Neuromodulators are used to improve and maintain the appearance of facial skin without the need for surgery or invasive procedures. They work by reducing the severity of wrinkles and preventing the formation of new ones. Anti-wrinkle injections specifically address muscle activity, which can cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop. Your physician injector may suggest anti-wrinkle injections for various concerns, such as forehead creases, frown lines, and crow's feet.
SkinPen is a cosmetic treatment that uses small, sanitized needles to produce precise micro-injuries on the skin, called microneedling. These injuries activate the body's natural healing process, encouraging collagen and elastin production, critical for maintaining the skin's firmness and elasticity. Consequently, the skin's quality is enhanced, firmness is boosted, and the overall look becomes more youthful.
Looking to refresh your skin without undergoing surgery? Our PRP Microneedling treatment is the perfect solution. Using your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), our skilled aestheticians use the FDA-approved SkinPen device to provide precise microneedling therapy targeting specific skin depths. This stimulates collagen production, tissue repair, and triggers your body's natural healing process, resulting in healthy skin and reduced appearance of fine lines.
Morpheus 8/ Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
If you're looking for a skin treatment that's safe for all skin types, Morpheus8 is a great option. This treatment uses a state-of-the-art device that delivers Radio-Frequency (RF) heat energy to the deeper layer of skin, called the dermis, using tiny silicone-plated needles spaced at short intervals. These needles are designed to minimize damage to the skin's surface and deliver RF energy deeper into the dermis without affecting pigment cells. With increased collagen and elastin production, the skin becomes firmer and tighter over time. Additionally, the dermal layers thicken, resulting in an overall improvement in the appearance of the skin. This option is highly recommended for more severe wrinkles and fine lines.
