Typically, when you think of wrinkles you automatically think of the face, but many individuals suffer with knee wrinkles. Kninkles, or knee wrinkles, can make the knees look older and unattractive. So, how do you get rid of knee wrinkles? We have the answer for you.

What Causes Knee Wrinkles?

Knee wrinkles can happen naturally as a result of the aging process. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and doesn’t “bounce back” like it used to. This causes sagging skin and can create knee wrinkles. Additionally, weight gain and/or subsequent weight loss can cause knee wrinkles.

Customized Treatment

At Reston Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, we take pride in creating customized treatment plans for patients based on the symptoms we see. First, we identify the root of the problem and treat it from there. For example, not every woman with wrinkly knees is having an issue with loose skin. Sometimes, the issue is excess fat. Other times, it might be that the skin is too thin and has lost its elastic.

Each of these situations needs to be addressed differently. Furthermore, if there’s more than one cause for the knee wrinkles, we may recommend treating them with different technologies.

Treatment for Knee Wrinkles how to get rid of knee wrinkles

One easy fix for knee wrinkles is dermal fillers. Fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra work by stimulating collagen production in the skin. This boost cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of connective tissues. Stimulating collagen production in the loose skin around the knees can create a smoother, more youthful appearance in the area.

Another great option is thread lifts. This option is effective, and minimally invasive. It involves using dissolving threads placed under the skin to lift and hold the skin in the correct place. While the threads dissolve, they stimulate collagen production and create a more youthful appearance in the skin around the knees.

Finally, we have skin tightening treatments. These treatments work by boosting collagen and elastin production to tighten skin and create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
