Can I avoid wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of living life and moving expressively. While wrinkles aren’t a medical concern, most people are interested in prolonging their youthful appearance or reducing wrinkles that have developed.

The dermatologists at Integrated Dermatology of Fairfax can help you optimize your skin care regimen and prevent premature aging.

Why do some people wrinkle more than others?

Age, genetics, and lifestyle factors contribute to your skin’s appearance. Sun exposure, poor diet, and smoking can also cause the skin to lose elasticity sooner than it otherwise would.

When it comes to skincare, prevention can go a long way, and it’s never too late to build a manageable regimen to keep your skin moisturized and protected from too much sun.

What treatments are available for wrinkles?

Your provider creates a treatment plan based on a meticulous skin evaluation, your skin concerns, and realistic goals. They may recommend:

Alpha-hydroxy acids

Also called AHAs, these solutions can improve skin texture and tone, cleanse pores, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and promote your skin’s health and brightness.


Antioxidants protect your skin from internal and environmental damage. Because they promote your skin’s resilience and vitality, antioxidants are essential for anti-aging.


Keeping your skin moisturized also prevents premature aging and complications. They protect your skin from friction and prevent delicate tissues from drying out. Your dermatologist can offer suggestions on the best moisturizers for your skin type.

Chemical peels

If your skin appears dull and uneven, chemical peels can remove dead cells to reveal the brighter, more youthful skin that’s currently hidden. Chemical peels can be a powerful anti-aging tool by promoting healthy cell turnover.


Everyone experiences some volume loss as they age, which can cause wrinkling and sagging in already-thin tissues, such as the face and hands. Fillers restore lost volume and can produce beautiful, natural results when administered by a skilled dermatologist.

Plastic surgery

If you want to discuss surgical options to combat wrinkles and other signs of aging, talk to your Integrated Dermatology of Fairfax provider. You can get sound medical advice without judgment to pursue your goals without sacrificing peace of mind.
