Let’s be honest. If you’re getting older, you’ve probably got wrinkles. Truth is… they are a part of the aging process. Wrinkles might be inevitable but that doesn’t mean you don’t have options. Our wrinkle treatments can fill in, smooth, and rejuvenate your skin. You’ve got wrinkles; what are you going to do about them?
What Are My Wrinkle Treatment Options?
When it comes to wrinkles, you’ve got options…lots of them actually. Wrinkles have many causes and the best treatment for each situation depends on the type, cause, and location of the wrinkling. Because Dr. Chang performs all consultations and the majority of wrinkle procedures, she can easily recommend the best treatments for your problem areas. For patients with early signs of aging, this may mean a single treatment, while patients with more advanced aging may benefit from a combination of treatments.
For wrinkles caused by muscle activity, Botox is the gold standard in treatments. Botox is an injectable treatment that temporarily prevents muscle contractions, thus allowing the wrinkles caused by movement to smooth. It is ideal for lines between the brow, crow’s feet, bunny lines, etc. Dr. Chang says that Botox is the safest treatment she’s used throughout her career. It is quick, easy, and effective.
Dermal fillers can also be used to fill in lines and restore lost volume due to aging. Dermal fillers can be used on their own or combined with Botox as a “liquid facelift,” a non-surgical lift. Dr. Chang is a highly skilled injector and is in the top 3% of physician accounts with Allergan to obtain Platinum Plus injector status with only a single injector on the account. Typically, filler treatments require no downtime with results that often appear instantly.
Skin Tightening Treatments
As the skin ages, its collagen and elastin levels decrease, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin tightening treatments can help. We offer a variety of tightening treatments and can offer recommendations about which may be beneficial for your skin. Dr. Chang often pairs skin tightening treatments with dermal fillers for even better results.
Skin Resurfacing Treatments
For patients with wrinkles and other signs of aging (like pigmentation issues), a skin resurfacing treatment may be beneficial. We use several skin resurfacing devices including Fraxel DUAL, eMatrix, and SkinFinity. These treatments target damaged skin and can treat many signs of aging from wrinkles to pigmentation problems while improving the skin’s tone and texture.
