With One of Our Many Solutions to Treat Unwanted Wrinkles You Can

Rediscover Your True Look at DermMedica

It began when we were born – smiling, frowning, crying, and laughing. Those emotions displayed on our face borne out of a need to express ourselves when we couldn’t do it with words. Even though we can now communicate with our voice, our expressions still show through on our skin and communicate our intent even when we don’t realize or desire it. Some lines are natural and desirable while others may betray our real emotions and project an unwanted effect on those around us. Thankfully, we have a whole host of advanced treatment options to improve those unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face to leave us looking more relaxed, natural and refreshed.

Why Do Wrinkles Develop?

They develop with long-term UV exposure and when the body decreases the rate of new collagen and elastin production. Reduced levels of collagen and elastin are a normal part of the body’s aging process. Although nothing can be done to prevent natural aging, there are other environmental factors that will contribute to increased effects with age. These factors may help determine how likely you are to experience problems.

Genetic (family) influences play a large role in the development of all lines in the skin. A good family history can prevent a lot from forming in the first place, but there are some health and diet habits you can develop to hold them off for a little longer if you’re not one of the lucky ones.

Restore Your True Look with our Gentle Wrinkle Treatments

Our gentle treatments can help you recover your true look when time, sun exposure or personal health habits have caused the development of lines on your face and neck. Wrinkling is one of the most frustrating signs of aging, and may appear years before they should if your lifestyle exposes you to any of the risk factors.

Wrinkles may develop as either fine lines or deep furrows, and may appear prematurely around the most sensitive areas of the face including the areas just above the lips, under the eyes and on the neck. To treat these different areas, we offer a diverse range of specialized procedures designed to target lines in specific areas.

Botox® Cosmetic


With over 15 years of experience and over 12,000 injectable patients alone, Dr. Crippen is an expert Botox injector who has trained physicians and nurses alike. Trust your one and only face to someone with years of experience and dedication to their craft.

Anyone who wants to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on their face:

TREATMENT: Botox Cosmetic
DESCRIPTION: Neuromodulator to relax and smooth lines
PROCEDURE TIME: 5-10 minutes
RECOVERY TIME: None
TECHNIQUE: Small injections into dynamic muscle groups
PAIN LEVEL: Minimal

Fractional CO2 Laser


A Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser is similar to an Erbium Laser in that they both vaporize water to remove layers of problem skin and stimulate collagen growth. A Fractional CO2 laser, however, is a much better skin tightening laser and therefore is used for the treatment of deeper skin problems.

PROCEDURE TIME: 30-45 minutes
RECOVERY TIME: 7-10 days

TECHNIQUE: CO2 laser treatment
PAIN LEVEL: Minimal with anesthetic
RESULTS: Seen in 7-10 days, improve over next 2 months

Limiting Wrinkling Risk Factors

Avoid Smoking

Smoking not only causes wrinkles, but it narrows blood flow to the skin so it ages much quicker than normal. Smoking not only ages your face quickly. but also the entire body. If not for looks alone, you should stop smoking for all the health reasons.

Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure

Sun exposure is a significant risk factor. Spending many hours, days and years in the sun breaks down your cells over time so when you get older your skin will be paper thin and develop not only signs of aging, but cancer. We treat cancers all the time at our clinic so we know what we’re talking about. What’s worse is getting cancer that takes up a large section that has to be removed and then closed with grafts from somewhere else. That is definitely not a pretty sight and can be avoided with simple sun care and protection all throughout life.

Avoid Tanning Services/Products

Tanning booths can age you very quickly! Constant muscle movement such as with the forehead or around the mouth can also contribute, though Botox and fillers can reduce movement and slow development of aging signs. These can stop and even reverse the formation of lines on the face with no downtime whatsoever.

Healthy Diet

Fluctuating weight can result in early and more frequent problems. A well-controlled diet can keep wrinkling at bay.
