Why Do Wrinkles Happen?
Wrinkles stem from a variety of issues.
Wrinkles are fine lines or deep creases that are inevitable as we age, particularly in sun-exposed parts of our bodies. Besides sun damage, facial expressions can cause wrinkles, as well as smoking, environmental factors, and poor hydration.
Can Wrinkles Be Prevented?
While we all get wrinkles, there are many ways to minimize the formation of wrinkles.
- It all begins with sun protection. Using sunblock every day (SPF 30 or greater) is the easiest way to protect your skin. There are also many skincare products and makeup that have a built-in sun protection factor against both UVA and UVB rays. When you are exposed to radiant sunshine, it is important to use protective clothing and wide-brimmed hats.
- Avoid smoking. Smoking not only damages skin but also encourages the formation of wrinkles by squinting. Cessation of smoking is the most important portion of any wrinkle prevention regimen.
- Use Skin Moisturizers. Dehydrated skin is prone to wrinkles. Moisturized skin is plump, and it helps mask fine lines and wrinkles. Besides professional-grade skincare products, treatments like Hydrafacial and Geneo can help you maintain your skin moisturized, healthy, and plump.
- Facial expressions. We learn our facial expressions when we are very young. Avoiding squinting or smiling is difficult, but neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport can help eliminate unwanted facial expressions.

From Our Clients
First let me say, absolutely amazing staff! I have been here twice, the first time for a skin consultation and skincare routine. Came away with a skincare program that suited my needs as well as a friendly consultation that made me feel so comfortable. (I don’t often go anywhere without my makeup on, but everyone made me feel “normal” and beautiful and accepted for me) My second time I visited the MedSpa, (along with my Aunt) I met with Kelsey! And let me say…loud and absolutely clear!…..She is truly awesome!
Kind….gentle…down to Earth…..professional and very informative! This was my first time looking into any type of “refresher”…..and so naturally I had some anxiety about what I should and shouldn’t do. Kelsey, was sooooo patient and kind and helped me (and my Aunt) with my/our decisions…as well as what was appropriate for me and my needs. SO thankful for her advice and wisdom! Absolute hands down….I had such a wonderful experience! Thank you Allegro MedSpa!….Oh!..and the lovely girls at the desk?…All smiles and treated me like family. You guys made my nerves turn into excitement and joy! I will definitely be back again. Looking forward to it!
“The last results were amazing because my skin felt and looked so beautiful. The peel was a great choice Ashley made and my skin is so sensitive after going through menopause. The protocol is excellent and the staff is knowledgeable and knows exactly how to make the best possible decisions for long-term results.”
“I liked the illuminize peel I had. My skin was perfect after and I will be coming back for another. I enjoy coming to your Santa Rosa location for my appointments. Ashley is a fabulous aesthetician and very knowledgeable in skincare.”
“The procedure was well explained as well as what to expect into the following few days. Everything was comfortable & very relaxing. There was no downtime or discomfort.”
“I had my lips done my Kelsey and she was wonderful! She was very informative, professional and very nice. I was a little nervous and she went out of way to make me feel comfortable. She did an amazing job!”
“JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC – This was the best filler appointment that I’ve had! This is the third time I’ve had filler (second at this location) and the dental block made the world of a difference!!”
