Sun damage, pollution, and aging all contribute to the health of our skin. Applying a broad-spectrum sun screen daily at least 30 minutes before sun exposure can help prevent damage to your skin (and prevent skin cancer!!) and should be part of your skincare regimen if you do nothing else.

If you have developed facial wrinkles that concern you, there are effective options for minimizing these lines. For dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and smile lines, botulinum toxin (Botox or Xeomin) is an effective treatment that lasts up to 3 months.

For other wrinkles like marionette lines and skin fold wrinkles at the nasolabial folds (parentheses lines), fillers containing hyaluronic acid (Juvederm, Radiesse) can “fill out” the wrinkle and smoothen the lines, giving a more youthful, relaxed appearance.
