Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and between the brows are often the first telltale signs of aging, yet they simply aren’t pronounced enough to warrant surgery. Luckily, there are a number of nonsurgical treatment options like BOTOX® Cosmetic available to help minimize these wrinkles and achieve smoother skin.
Resurfacing procedures remove the dull, damaged outer layers of skin that contribute to a worn, tired look. The process also helps to diminish fine lines, wrinkles and other skin irregularities. Options for resurfacing include dermabrasion, laser resurfacing and chemical peels. Although these treatments all work through different mechanisms, each works to reveal new glowing skin that helps you look vibrant again.
Often, the first noticeable wrinkles appear as a result of dynamic muscle movement. The constant motion of facial expressions forces the skin into wrinkles, much like folding a piece of paper again and again along the same crease. BOTOX® injections temporarily paralyze these muscles, allowing the skin and muscles to relax and smooth for a fresher, unlined appearance.
Injectable fillers like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® and even your own fat cells can add volume to make a noticeable improvement in fine lines and wrinkles as well as minor facial scars like those left from acne. One treatment takes just a few minutes, and the results can last several months or more.
The Look You Deserve
All of these treatments may help individually to smooth away those early signs of aging, but they’re also very complementary and are frequently used together for even better results. It’s important to work closely with a board-certified plastic surgeon to work out the best approach to help you age as gracefully as possible.
