As you get older, your skin starts losing collagen and elastin — the connective tissues that make your skin firm. You also start losing the thin layer of fat that separates facial muscles from your skin. As a result, you begin developing wrinkles. With her extensive aesthetic background, Teresa Camden, MD, FACSM, understands that your skin shouldn’t give away your age. She offers several anti-aging wrinkle treatments at her practice, New Medical Spa in Glen Allen and greater Richmond, Virginia. Book your evaluation online or over the phone.

Wrinkles Q & A

Can dermal fillers get rid of wrinkles?

Dermal fillers can certainly smooth out your skin and help minimize the appearance of moderate to deep grooves and wrinkles. Clinically proven dermal fillers, like Belotero®, Radiesse®, and JUVÉDERM®, fill in areas where you’ve lost volume.

What’s particularly beneficial about these advanced dermal fillers is that they last for a long time. Depending on which filler you choose and the severity of your wrinkles, expect the benefits to last for one to two years.

Plus, when your dermal filler treatment starts wearing off, it’s perfectly safe to have the treatment repeated. In some cases, your dermal filler results are even better if you pair your injections with botulinum injections, such as BOTOX® or XEOMIN®. These injectables help further smooth your skin.

How can I minimize wrinkles at home?

Although dermal fillers are ideal for smoothing out the appearance of lines and wrinkles, you still need to care for your skin at home to protect it from environmental issues that age skin. Dr. Camden offers an entire line of SkinMedica® solutions.

This line of skincare products has been thoroughly evaluated through clinical studies to ensure the products respond to your body’s complex biological systems. SkinMedica products help reverse the signs of aging, combat acne and oily skin, and even soothe redness and irritation.

Since these solutions are safe for men and women who have allergies or sensitive skin, you can expect results with SkinMedica. Dr. Camden helps you choose the best products for your specific needs, so you can start looking and feeling younger with your fresh, glowing skin.

What can I do to prevent wrinkles?

Once Dr. Camden gets you started on your custom anti-aging regimen and you begin noticing the benefits of injectables and clinical-grade SkinMedica products, you need to work to prevent future wrinkles. Granted, you’re still going to age, so you can’t stop all wrinkles from forming. However, you can certainly work to lessen your risk of deep wrinkles and other signs of aging.

The best way to prevent wrinkles is to minimize your sun exposure and to wear sunscreen daily. SkinMedica has an entire line of protective products that offer up to SPF 50+. Some products are even tinted and can blend in perfectly underneath your makeup.
