Wrinkles don’t have to be forever
Wrinkles in the skin typically get associated with aging, though often they show prematurely due to smoking or spending too much time in the sun.
When you’re ready to tackle your wrinkles, West Linn Aesthetics has a suite of effective treatments.
The truth about wrinkles
The creation of wrinkles comes down to a breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, regardless of what causes that breakdown.
Once you are past your mid-20s, your body produces less and less collagen so the process of skin wrinkling is accelerated. Wrinkles appear most prominently on the face, neck, hands, and forearms for most people.
Dermal fillers are a natural way to fill depleted facial features or wrinkles and stimulate collagen production.

Forever Young BBL™ uses an innovative technology to delivery light therapy targeting hyperpigmentation such as melasma, in addition to improving signs of aging and skin elasticity.
Botox blocks the nerve impulses of the injected muscles to temporarily paralyze wrinkle-causing muscle movements. Common targets include horizontal lines across the forehead and perpendicular frown lines between the brows. Wrinkles can be softened or even prevented through use of Botox™
Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you prevent wrinkles?
While you cannot prevent the eventual formation of wrinkles, there are many steps you can take to protect your skin from causes of premature wrinkling and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. The most important thing for your skin is wearing at least a 30SPF broad-spectrum sunscreen every single day. Avoid smoking, eat a healthy diet, and moisturize regularly to fight wrinkles.
Can drinking water make wrinkles go away?
Keeping your body hydrated and refreshed with plenty of water does help your skin's elasticity. This helps prevent the formation of wrinkles when in conjunction with sunscreen and other preventative measures. That said, once a wrinkle has formed it won't go away based on the amount of water you drink. Reversing wrinkles requires treating them from the inside out through increased collagen production.
What is the main cause of wrinkles?
Without question the leading cause of wrinkles, especially premature wrinkles, is exposure to UV rays. Without a broad-spectrum sunscreen, UVA and UVB light penetrates your skin leading to wrinkles, lines, brown spots, and more.
