Anti-wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle Treatments

As we age, wrinkles are an inevitable part of the human experience for everyone, affecting all adults at some point as we get older. Wrinkling happens as an effect from a variety of causes, whether dietary or lifestyle habits, genetics, excessive sun exposure, or from simply existing. As natural as creases and skin folds may be, most people dread the onset of wrinkles and feel quite burdened by such visible and telling changes to their skin.

Our team of skilled physicians and professional skin consultants will design a treatment plan ranging from your day-to-day needs, topical treatments and cosmetic procedures to address your individual needs.

How to Treat – Alone or in Combination

Botox or Dysport

Botox injections have several helpful uses. Although widely known for their cosmetic use in correcting fine lines, wrinkles, and other aging concerns of the facial area, Botox treatments are also useful for their work in helping treat chronic migraines, headaches, and neck pain as well.

Dermal Fillers

Aging is a sensitive subject, and it’s not surprising when one considers how important a person’s appearance is to their self-esteem. As the concern around aging grows so does the popularity of cosmetic procedures that help patients to reverse the signs of aging. In recent years dermal filler injections have emerged as one of the most popular methods to fill out and obscure wrinkles and replace age-related lost volume in the face and neck. Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally produced by your body. The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and hydrated.

  • Procedure time: 30 minutes
  • Anesthesia: ice, vibration
  • Pain level: Mild
  • Recovery time: none
  • Results: usually immediate, final results visible in 3-4 weeks

Morpheus8

The state-of-the-art Morpheus 8™ is the first and only full-body subdermal adipose remodeling device, to target the deepest layers of the skin using radiofrequency technology. Radiofrequency technology is the gold standard for skin tightening and combined with this resurfacing treatment, it can smooth the skin texture and tighten the skin caused by aging and acne scars with very minimal downtime.

  • Procedure time: 15-60 minutes
  • Anesthesia: topical numbing cream and/or nerve block
  • Pain level: mild
  • Recovery time: few days
  • Results: visible within 1-4 weeks
  • Treatment effects: best seen with multiple treatments and maintenance over 6-12 months.

Microneedling

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT) and skin needling, is a noninvasive procedure that stimulates new collagen production. Using microneedles, tiny punctures induce collagen and elastin production, resulting in more youthful appearing skin. The release of these properties aid in repairing the texture and resiliency of the skin. Microneedling addresses minor skin concerns such as skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, and skin discolorations.

  • Procedure time: 30 minutes
  • Anesthesia: topical numbing cream
  • Pain level: Mild
  • Recovery time: 1 day
  • Results: 7-10 days
  • Treatment effects: best seen with multiple treatments and maintenance over 3-6 months.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been shown to have numerous growth factors that enhance the body's own response in collagen production. PRP therapy involves collecting a patient's own blood and spinning it down into a concentrate of plasma that has a high platelet concentration. This is then injected back into the candidate's skin. Given that the material that is injected into skin is obtained from the patient, the risk of reaction is close to none.

  • Procedure time: 45-60 minutes
  • Anesthesia: topical numbing cream
  • Pain level: none to mild
  • Recovery time: less than 1 day
  • Results: within 3-4 weeks
  • Treatment effects: best seen with multiple treatments and maintenance over 6-9 months.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a skin resurfacing technique to improve the appearance of the skin. A solution is applied to the skin which causes it to exfoliate and "peel off". There are many chemical peels available that range from superficial to deep. The choice depends on the desired depth of penetration, treatment effect, and recovery time. Typically, the deeper the peel, the greater the results, but they are also associated with greater recovery period and adverse effects.

  • Procedure time: 15 minutes
  • Anesthesia: not required
  • Pain level: none
  • Recovery time: none
  • Results: within 3-4 days
  • Treatment effects: best seen with multiple treatments and maintenance over 3-6 months.
