Your Options for Getting Rid of Wrinkles

Wrinkles are an unavoidable part of the aging process, but they are not a sign of aging that you have to live with. Utilizing the cosmetic skincare services of Specialists in Dermatology, you can find the right solution to your fine lines and wrinkles to maintain a more youthful appearance at any age. Below you can get a closer look at our non-surgical wrinkle treatments to give your skin a smoother, tighter appearance. Botox Botox Cosmetic is an injectable solution that is best fit for treating wrinkles along the forehead and brow line. Botox relaxes the underlying muscles that cause the skin to fold, resulting in a more relaxed look in problem areas. Results will last for about 3-4 months, and treatment takes only about 15 minutes. Laser resurfacing Fractional laser resurfacing is most effective for wrinkles caused by sun damage, and it works by targeting deeper tissues below the surface of the skin to encourage the body’s natural healing processes along with a boost in collagen production. The result will be an overall smoother appearance in the skin that develops over two weeks following your treatment. Chemical peels Fine lines may respond to a chemical peel, which will remove the outermost layers of skin to reduce damage on the surface and allow moisturizers to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. Results are gradual following a chemical peel, and extra protection from sun and wind is needed after your treatment to avoid damage to sensitive skin. Skin tightening Exilis tissue tightening is another procedure that will give a more youthful appearance on the whole face by boosting metabolic activity in the cells using radio waves to generate heat. Treatment feels like a hot stone massage, and it works to reduce wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and improve the overall texture of your skin. To get a more in-depth look at each of these treatment options, schedule a consultation with Specialists in Dermatology at (520) 382-3330.
