Wrinkles may appear as fine lines or as deep crevices and furrows around the eyes, mouth, and neck. While thinning skin is a natural part of aging, with advanced skincare treatments and procedures, you can enhance skin quality, increase natural collagen production, and enjoy firmer, more supple skin, allowing you to look as young as you feel far longer than nature intended.
What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are the results of sun exposure, loss of collagen and elastin, and overuse of the facial muscles over time. They can also be caused by bone loss.
- What treatments are available for wrinkles, and what are the benefits?
- BOTOX is the #1 treatment for facial lines due to facial movement.
- Dermal fillers can be used to fill deep creases and hollows due to fat or collagen loss.
- Lasers can help resurface your skin to smooth fine and deeper lines.
- Daily use of sunscreen is recommended.
Am I a candidate for wrinkle treatment in NYC?
Facial wrinkles are never welcome, but over time, are inevitable.

What can I expect with wrinkle treatment?
With advances in aesthetic dermatology, you now have options for wrinkle reduction and your treatment plan may include any of the following:
Repetitive facial movements, such as smiling, frowning, and squinting, can cause lines and wrinkles to form in the skin. These may include vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal furrows in the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Injected precisely into the muscles, BOTOX can block the signals from the nerves to the muscles, decreasing movement, and reducing wrinkles.
New generation dermal fillers provide a convenient, minimally-invasive, long-lasting smoothing effect on facial skin. This popular facial rejuvenation technique uses a smooth, injectable gel to fill in wrinkles and folds and replace lost volume in the face. At Ariel Ostad MD PC, we use a variety of high-quality dermal fillers to sculpt and enhance facial contours and help turn back the clock.
RF wrinkle treatments
Radiofrequency energy emitted by our advanced system will precisely heat the deep layers of skin without damaging the outer layer. This causes the existing collagen to contract and tighten, for a subtle lifting effect. It also stimulates new collagen production, for results that improve over time. RF wrinkle reduction is a comfortable, effective, noninvasive treatment for the following and more:
- Nasolabial folds (from the nose to the mouth corners)
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Loose skin above or below the eye
Is there any recovery after a wrinkle treatment procedure?
BOTOX, dermal fillers, and RF treatments are all safe wrinkle smoothing treatments with no downtime. You may experience slight redness after an RF treatment, but this will soon subside, and you can return to your normal daily activities. After BOTOX and dermal filler injections, you may experience a small amount of bruising and tenderness around the injection sites. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own.
