5 Ways to Reduce Wrinkles Without Surgery

We may have to accept the years passing on the calendar, but that doesn't mean we have to live with time's effect on our appearance. The good news is there are more ways than ever to reduce wrinkles and leave your skin looking refreshed. 

Dr. Carmelo Plateroti and our top-notch team at Plateroti Dermatology in Templeton, California, provide state-of-the-art care for all your aesthetic and dermatologic needs. We use a unique integrative approach that combines Western medicine and holistic care, creating the best possible results for your health and appearance, including reducing wrinkles.


Wrinkle formation is an unavoidable part of aging. Our skin becomes drier and less elastic as we lose fat and collagen. This can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. 

Repeated facial expressions and damage from ultraviolet radiation from the sun or tanning beds can also play a role as can smoking and exposure to air pollution.

Treatment options

Fortunately, we are living in the golden age of wrinkle treatment with a wide variety of options to help. These include:

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to diminish facial wrinkles by plumping and smoothing lines and creases. A number of choices are available, including Revanesse Versa, Radiesse, Sculptra, Juvéderm, and Restylane. Our specialists can help determine which is right to meet your goals.

BOTOX® and Dysport

Some of our wrinkles are the result of repeated muscle contractions. This injectable treatment temporarily relaxes the muscles which, in turn, causes the wrinkles to soften and become smoother. It can treat forehead lines, crow's feet, and chin dimpling as well as other wrinkles and fine lines.

Radiofrequency microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling treatment such as that done with MORPHEUS8 uses fractionated radiofrequency energy to penetrate into the skin and fat to stimulate the production of collagen. This reduces wrinkles and leaves the skin smoother and younger-looking.

Laser resurfacing

Unlike typical laser resurfacing procedures that remove all the skin's surface, Cortex YAG Erbium and CO2 lasers create treated columns of skin while leaving healthy skin intact. This stimulates production of both collagen and elastin and ensures a faster healing process and emergence of a smoother, less wrinkled appearance.

Specialized products

Specialized creams and serums can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by supporting the skin's ability to create new collagen and elastin. We have a number of specialized products available and can help determine which ones will help you meet your goals.

Wrinkles may be a natural part of aging, but they don't have to dominate your appearance. Click our request button, or call us at 805-434-2526 today to make an appointment and find out which of our many nonsurgical wrinkle treatments are right for you.
