Let us show you how state-of-the-art technology combined with renowned experience can help you achieve the look you desire.
How are wrinkles formed ?
Most wrinkles form as a result of simultaneous changes in various parts of the skin (superficial and deep layer) as well as in the fat and the muscle layers beneath the skin. Collagen and elastin, which give strength and support to the skin, are often unable to keep up with the aging process – breaking down quicker than they are produced. This causes the skin to become thinner and less elastic. This skin loosening combined with strong muscle contractions (i.e. puckering, smiling, frowning) are what lead to persistent wrinkles and lines in the skin. Thanks to recent advances in science and technology, the Texas Institute of Dermatology is capable of treating stubborn and persistent wrinkles with methods that are proven to show improvement.

According to Dr. Ghohestani, no cream is effective in treating wrinkles. Application of a high strength tretinoin cream called Renova or a high concentration of Active Vitamin C (Active C, La Roche Posay) may improve certain signs of skin aging. We don’t have a magic cream that treats wrinkles as of yet, said Dr. Ghohestani. He recommends Active C or tretinoin cream. Most over the counter products contain much less Tretinoin or, in case of Vitamin C, is usually offered in a formulary that makes it less effective.
At the Texas Institute of Dermatology, we want you to have an excellent outcome and to feel that your expectations are met. We strive diligently to ensure your satisfaction and your comfort.
All treatments are supervised or performed by Dr. Ghohestani, a former chief of Dermatology at UT San Antonio with many years of successful experience in a large variety of procedures. Many treatment modalities are available, and we can recommend the one or two that are most likely to meet your needs.
