Wrinkle Reducer Q & A

What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, although environmental factors and lifestyle habits can contribute to how quickly and severely they form. Genetics do, of course, play a role, but fine lines and wrinkles can be made worse by:

  • Overexposure to UV light
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Environmental pollutants
  • Loss of fat and supportive tissues
  • Repeated muscle contractions

When you make certain facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting, the muscles in your face create folds and creases in your skin. Over time, these repeated movements create fine lines and wrinkles. These types of wrinkles are often seen around the eyes, between the brows, on the forehead, or around the lips.

What treatments reduce the appearance of wrinkles?

At Ventura Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Slater offers various treatments that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on your specific needs, she may recommend:


Botox uses a purified toxin to temporarily paralyze your muscles, stopping their contractions and allowing the skin to smooth. It’s often used for forehead creases, lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, collagen, and other moisturizing agents to add fullness and volume to your facial fillers. Depending on your needs, the team at Ventura Medical Aesthetics can address hollowness in your cheeks and lips and smooth fine lines and wrinkles with a variety of fillers, including Juvederm XC, Voluma, Vollure, and VobellaⓇ.

Icon™ laser treatments

The Icon laser offers a pain-free wrinkle reducing treatment with non-ablative, fractional laser energy. This energy penetrates deep into your tissue, stimulating a healing response that boosts collagen and elastin, healing and rejuvenating your skin.

What happens during an Icon treatment for wrinkles?

The Icon laser treatment for wrinkles gives you smoother skin without the risk of unnatural facial changes. After prepping your treatment area, Dr. Slater or one of her team members uses the hand-held treatment device to administer laser energy across your face and skin.

This pain-free treatment stimulates your skin’s natural healing process and can make you look younger and rejuvenated after just one treatment. Dr. Slater can recommend Nitronox™ to help keep you as comfortable as possible. In 4-7 days, your results appear and your skin looks radiant.
