Dear #AYA: How Can I Avoid Premature Wrinkling?

September 20, 2019 | Blog

Dear #AYA Wrinkle Reduction Treatments that WorkWrinkles are not something that are typically associated with younger people, but that doesn’t mean that they cannot occur at a young age. Wrinkles and fine lines (especially on the face) are the most common visible sign of aging, however, age isn’t the only thing that can bring them on. In order to help our patients avoid looking older before their time, the skincare experts here at AYA Medical Spa wanted to answer some questions we have received about how to treat and prevent premature wrinkling.

Dear #AYA,

What areas can Ultherapy® Skin Tightening be used to fight wrinkles?

Ready to Start


Dear Ready to Start,

Ultherapy® Skin Tightening is an FDA-approved method of skin tightening and wrinkle prevention. While Ultherapy® is commonly thought of as a way to reduce wrinkles in the face and neck, it can also be used to help treat wrinkles that appear on a person’s chest.


Dear #AYA,

Is it true that Botox® injections can help stop wrinkles before they become visible?

Thinking Ahead


Dear Thinking Ahead,

This is indeed true. The service known as preventative Botox® can be chosen by younger patients who want to be proactive about stopping wrinkles before they ever even become wrinkles. This treatment is especially helpful for preventing dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused by specific facial muscle movements or expressions) that appear across the forehead, crow’s feet, and lines that appear in-between the eyes.


Dear #AYA,

Is there anything I can do at home between cosmetic treatments to help prevent wrinkles before they appear?


Being Proactive


Dear Being Proactive,

Absolutely! Developing a skincare regimen using medical-grade skincare products can be extremely beneficial in keeping your skin looking fresh and youthful. We recommend daily cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturization. Retinol-based skincare products like Revision® Skincare Retinol Complete can effectively help fight off wrinkles and lines by stimulating natural collagen production. Additionally, using a broad spectrum sunscreen (minimum 30 SPF) is also very highly recommended, as the sun’s UV rays are a leading contributor to premature wrinkles.

We hope you found these answers helpful. Premature wrinkles can be annoying, but thankfully, there are an abundance of skincare treatments and products that can help smooth the skin and send those wrinkles packing.
