What Causes Wrinkles?

Learn How You Get Wrinkles and How to Treat Them

on June 23, 2017

As we age, we all see unwanted wrinkles creep up on us. Thankfully, we don’t have to live with those wrinkles any more as our medical spa treatments have vastly improved!

But what causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They occur because our collagen levels deplete and our skin becomes thinner and less elastic, making it more difficult to rejuvenate itself. When the skin thins out, simple repeated facial expressions can lead to creases in the skin, specifically between the eyes and around the mouth.

However, wrinkles are caused by more than just repeated facial expressions. They can be caused by environmental factors such as exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. This happens via sunbathing and prolonged exposure to the sun without protection. The damage UV light does to your skin has been proven to increase the speed of wrinkle development as it breaks down the collagen in your body which keeps your skin elastic and fresh. When our collagen disappears, our skin begins to weaken and we see wrinkles and dark spots appear.

What Causes Wrinkles
Smoking and alcohol consumption can also lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. Smoking reduces blood supply to the skin, and alcohol dehydrates it. If your skin isn’t getting the right blood supply or hydration, it will begin to thin out, causing it to sag and make wrinkles more noticeable than ever.
Here’s our recommendation for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fighting them off for as long as possible:

What Causes Wrinkles


Botox is one of the easiest, and most commonly used methods for removing wrinkles. It works by blocking the chemical signals that lead to your muscles contracting. If your muscles don’t contract, they aren’t strained by repeated facial positioning, and you are able to avoid those pesky creases. Botox is also great for a number of other medical treatments, and leave your skin tight and smoother than it’s been. Botox is generally used to decrease lines between the eyes, on the forehead, frown lines, and any other lines surrounding the eyes or mouth.

Stop letting your facial muscles strain


Filler is very similar to Botox. It is injected in deeper face wrinkles, but unlike Botox, has a “plumping” effect. You will receive smooth skin, rejuvenated looking skin, and fuller looking lips, cheeks, and facial features. Filler can also be used on other parts of the body such as hands and feet, as those generally see wrinkles and sagging skin quicker than other body parts. There are various Filler options, so you’ll need to consult with our Registered Nurse before deciding which one is right for you.

Hi-Tech Facials

What Causes Wrinkles
Regular facial treatments are great for increasing circulation and collagen production in your body, making our Hi-Tech Facials the perfect way to decrease the look of wrinkles you have. Our combo IPL and RF treatments will destroy the dead skin on the surface of your face and stimulate the collagen in the dermal layer. After you’ve received your treatment, your skin will look smoother and tighter, helping you reduce your wrinkles.

Unlike a traditional facelift, Elevate is a non-invasive procedure with minimal side effects. You can go to work, notice crow’s feet, and come in for a consultation during your lunch break.

You’ll be able to target any specific area of the face, neck, or body, and will begin to see results immediately.
