Managing Wrinkle Treatment Online

Although the aesthetic affects of aging are inevitable, there are a number of dermatological and natural methods available to reduce wrinkles. Wrinkle-reduction is an incredibly saturated market -- walk into any drugstore and you will come face-to-face with an abundance of creams, serums, and masks that claim to provide a youthful glow.

When adopting a skincare regimen that relies on natural or off-the-shelf products, the key to success lies in the routine rather than in the product itself. In other words, the best form of skincare  is washing your face every night, followed by moisturizing.

In addition to sticking to a routine, there are certain factors that contribute to firmer, more youthful skin:

  • Antioxidants
  • Retinol
  • Hydration
  • Protection from the sun
  • Exfoliation

There are also several types of procedures that dermatologists can recommend for people who are interested in seeing the effects of treatment sooner, including:

  • Laser and radiofrequency treatments resurface the skin to stimulate new growth
  • Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion procedures remove a layer of skin to make room for another to grow
  • Botox (Botulinum toxin type A) is an injection that tightens the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or lines
  • Soft tissue fillers are injected into the skin and create a plumping quality that lessens the appearance of aging

Some adverse affects of prescription-based treatments include:

  • Irritation
  • Skin redness
  • Infection

During a video consult on TelaCare your dermatologist will ask you a series of targeted questions to determine whether home remedies or prescription-based treatment is best for you. Your dermatologist may recommend in-person examination by a specialist if needed.

Once a decision has been made, your dermatologist will go over the risks and benefits of the various treatment plans.

See below for answers to some of our most common questions. You can also call us anytime 24 hours a day at 1-800-317-0280 to speak to a medical professional about your symptoms or conditions.

 Can an online dermatologist determine if a skin growth is cancerous?

If you have skin lesions that fit the ABCDE criteria, in that they are Asymmetric with jagged Borders, multiple Colors, a Diameter larger than a pencil, and have been Evolving (you have observed them change over time) -- then you will likely need a biopsy to test for melanoma.

The ABCDE algorithm is just one of many tests a trained dermatologist uses in assessing risk of skin lesions, if you are unsure about whether your lesion merits a biopsy an online dermatologist can quickly examine your skin and either exclude the possibility of it being malignant or tell you that you have sufficient risk factors to merit going in person for testing.
