The 3-Way Approach to Wrinkles at the Northcoast Laser Cosmetics
- Posted on: Feb 28 2014
As much as we hate to admit it, there is no exact formula to avoiding wrinkles. The good news though is that we have figured out 3 methods here at our Mentor skin care practice that are already proven to dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles for a more naturally youthful look on your end.
Whenever men and women visit us for an initial consultation with the appearance of wrinkles as their utmost concern, we present the following 3-way approach:
1. Wrinkles are formed by continuous muscle contraction. This is where Botox can prove to be useful. This popular injectable temporarily blocks nerve impulses that causes the muscles to contract in your forehead and the rest of your face. Specifically, Botox has been proven to be effective in improving the appearance of horizontal forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eye area), and wrinkles between the brows.
2. While Botox prevents muscles from contracting, there are other wrinkles and folds that may not respond well to it. This is when we recommend dermal fillers, a group of injectables that specifically add volume to areas that appear hollow or wrinkled such as smile lines, sunken cheeks, thin lips, and pitted acne scars. Each dermal filler has its own unique ingredient — ranging from collagen to hyaluronic acid to calcium hydroxylapatite — and also varies in how long their effects could last.
3. For wrinkles that has to do with texture concerns, our fractional laser treatments can dramatically improve the state of your skin.
