Fine Lines & Wrinkles Overview
Fine lines and wrinkles develop with age, frequent sun exposure, and/or regular facial expressions (smiling, laughing, frowning, etc.). Common types of lines and wrinkles include:
- Laugh lines around the mouth
- Worry lines on the forehead
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Lip lines
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Chest wrinkles
Left untreated, wrinkles can deepen, dulling your skin in the process and giving you an older, tired-looking appearance. If you have any fine lines or wrinkles—or if you want to take some preventative steps to stop them from forming in the first place— a treatment plan consisting of non-surgical wrinkle removal procedures at our San Diego office can be the solution. The result will be a smoother and rejuvenated appearance!

Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego is proud to offer a variety of treatment options for fine lines and wrinkles, ranging from lasers, to fillers, to Thermage, Fractionated radiofrequency microneedling, Ultherapy, and more. Even better, these treatment options can be combined together for a comprehensive rejuvenation/non-surgical facelift:
Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin are effective wrinkle treatments offered at CLDerm. These neuromodulators minimize the effects of wrinkles like crow’s feet and worry lines by temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles, smoothing the skin and reducing the appearance of age lines. These treatments are nearly painless and don’t require any downtime, partly because of the ultrafine needles used to inject the neuromodulator (they are, in fact, similar to the needles used during acupuncture).
Facial fillers, such as Belotero and the Juvéderm and Restylane line of fillers, are injectables that use hyaluronic acid, the moisturizing substance responsible for helping skin stay plump and hydrated. These dermal fillers replace lost volume “filling in” fine lines, giving the skin a healthy, youthful look.
Other fillers, such as Sculptra and Radiesse, are comprised of substances that not only provide volume but also stimulate the skin’s production of collagen, resulting in longer-lasting, natural-looking results. Bellafill, on the other hand, is made with non-reabsorbable polymethylmethacrylate, which provides volume and structural support to the skin.
Our full selection of dermal fillers includes:
- Restylane Silk
- Restylane Refyne and Defyne
- Restylane Lyft
These neuromodulator and dermal filler treatments are non-invasive and quick enough to be lunchtime procedures, so you can get back to your day without skipping a beat.

At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, we have over 45 different lasers available for a variety of procedures, and many of these lasers are specifically designed to minimize the appearance of fine lines and treat deep wrinkles.
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the top treatments when it comes to treating wrinkles, pigmentation issues, and erasing skin damage caused by sun exposure, scarring, and stress. MedlinePlus.gov has more information on wrinkle treatments.
After undergoing fractional laser skin resurfacing, you’ll enjoy a balanced skin tone, smoother skin texture, firmer skin, and diminished facial wrinkles.
The wide variety of lasers at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology allows us to provide gentle treatment and excellent results without damaging adjacent tissue. Depending on your condition and aesthetic goals, you may need a series of treatments for full results to achieve the smoother, more resilient, rejuvenated skin you want. One of the best combinations for fine lines and wrinkles is the Lumenis UltraPulse Encore which can be used with the Sciton Erbium laser for a combination laser resurfacing treatment that provides significant improvement for diverse issues like fine lines, pigmentation, sun damage, etc.
Chemical peels are a great way to reduce the appearance of superficial lines and wrinkles. When you come in for a consultation, our cosmetic dermatology specialists will assess your skin to determine which peel is best for your unique skin type. We offer a variety of chemical peels to treat individuals of any skin type!
