Lines & Wrinkles

Lines & Wrinkles

As aging occurs, lines and wrinkles form on the face, especially the areas around the mouth and eyes. These lines and wrinkles can be treated in several ways. For fine lines of the face, creams containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) can be used causing a mild peeling away of old skin, leaving a fresh and smooth appearing skin surface. This treatment improves the health and appearance of the skin. It is the least expensive and easiest to perform.

A new treatment called Microdermabrasion can vastly accelerate the peeling process giving virtually instant results. This treatment uses a special dual action hand piece to gently abrade the skin with fine crystals. Suction is simultaneously used to massage the skin and remove unwanted dead skin cells. Most people notice softening of the skin after just one treatment.

For deeper lines and wrinkles, there are other options for treatment. Fillers such as Juvederm or Teosyal can be used to fill out lines around the mouth and eyes. These injections give almost instant results that can be noticed immediately. Re-treatment may be required in 6-8 month intervals.

Botox can be injected into the tightened muscles which cause deeper frown and squint lines around the forehead and eyes. The result is a more smooth and relaxed appearing facial expression. This is a quick and painless treatment with results lasting 4-6 months. There is almost no recovery time for this procedure and no after treatment is required.
