It seems like each time you glance into the mirror, you notice yet another wrinkle. You feel they're aging you, and it's time to do something about it. You may want to consider laser skin treatments to target facial wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing is very popular, for many reasons. Here at Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in Delray Beach, we specialize in laser treatments for wrinkles and can share with you some insight on how to try to prevent and get rid of the wrinkles on your face.
The Causes of Wrinkles and Where to Find Them
While wrinkles are a natural part of aging, there are other factors that can accelerate their presence, such as genetics, sun exposure, smoking, poor nutrition, dehydration (alcohol dehydrates the skin), and not using moisturizers. The most common places wrinkles appear include:
- Eyes: crow’s feet; between the eyes; underneath the eyes
- Forehead: both vertical/horizontal wrinkles
- Mouth/Lips: vertical wrinkles develop around the mouth and spread above and below the mouth
- Neck: horizontal wrinkles mostly on the front of the neck, but can extend to the back
- Chest: caused by sun damage and muscle-loss (can become very obvious when taking a selfie)
Younger people aren’t immune to wrinkles. At younger ages, regular facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, squinting, and even pouting, can cause fine lines and wrinkles.

Laser Skin Treatment is Great for Aging Skin
Let’s say you do everything in your power to prevent wrinkles, yet there they are – front and center. You feel your best, and you’re in great shape. You even feel younger than your age – but, for those wrinkles. There is a number of ways to help smooth wrinkles, make them less noticeable, and even get rid of them altogether. Laser resurfacing is an excellent way to target wrinkles on and around your face. In the procedure, a wand-like laser instrument is used to direct short, concentrated beams of light to one’s skin, removing the upper layers of skin. The treatment also works well for reducing skin irregularities, such as acne scars or blemishes. Here at our practice, we use Sciton lasers, industry leaders of high-quality laser and light systems. We can help you achieve optimal results.
