Genetics, aging, and sun exposure all contribute to the formation of lines and wrinkles on your skin. Though wrinkles are part of the aging process, Marcel Brysk, MD, and the team at Doctors Weight Clinic can help slow down the visible signs of aging with their wrinkle reduction treatments. With locations in El Cajon, Chula Vista, and Laguna Hills, California, Doctors Weight Clinic offers many innovative wrinkle reduction therapies, including microneedling, fillers, Botox®, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, and sermorelin.

Your skin is made up of three layers, including the epidermis (outer layer), dermis (middle layer), and a subcutaneous layer of fat. As you get older, skin cell production slows down, and your dermal layer starts to thin.
Your dermal layer is made up of structural proteins called elastin and collagen. These proteins are responsible for your skin’s youthful strength and resilience. Without the structural support, your skin sags and develops depressions.
The subcutaneous layer of fat also diminishes with age. Without this layer of protection, your muscles work closer to the epidermis, creating creases and lines.
Excess sun exposure and smoking also accelerate your skin’s aging process.
Wrinkle reduction is one of the many services offered at Doctors Weight Clinic to help you look as young as you feel.
When it comes to reversing the visible signs of aging, you have many options that don’t require surgery or downtime.
Doctors Weight Clinic offers many wrinkle reduction treatments.
Microneedling is a type of collagen induction therapy. During treatment, your provider uses a special device that creates microtears in the surface layer of your skin.
These tiny tears activate your skin’s natural healing powers, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, as your collagen levels increase, your lines and wrinkles diminish.
Botox is one of the most popular wrinkle reduction treatments. The cosmetic injection specifically improves the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.
It works by temporarily stopping the muscle movement under the skin that creates the lines. Botox injections take only a few minutes to administer, and the results last up to four months.
Dermal fillers are a cosmetic injection that restores lost facial volume to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Like Botox, fillers only take a few minutes to administer. But the results may last six months or more.
PRP treatments may be combined with microneedling or filler injections. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and specialized cells that accelerate the healing and rejuvenation process.
Sermorelin is an anti-aging injection that stimulates the release of human growth hormone (HGH). By increasing HGH levels, the anti-aging injection may slow down your body’s aging process, improve stamina, and help you maintain a healthy weight.
