Aging is inevitable. Wrinkles are the first signs of aging. With age lines between your eyebrows, near your eyes and around your mouth are all ways the body reveals aging. Fortunately for those that are surgery averse, Dr. Rokhsar is an expert in treating wrinkles and provides many options to wrinkle reduction and skin smoothing. Depending on the patient’s skin type, different approaches to wrinkle reduction such as Botox, fillers, light therapy and laser are available.
One of the best and most effective tools for ridding of wrinkles is the Fraxel laser. Dr. Rokhsar has trained more physicians on the use of Fraxel laser for fractional resurfacing in the world than any other physician. The laser works by treating microscopic sections of the skin at a time, stimulating collagen production which creates a tighter and less wrinkled skin appearance. Collagen is the key protein in the skin structure. The more collagen production is encouraged, the more youthful the skin appears to be.
There is no one best way to treat wrinkles. Instead, it is completely dependent on many factors such as the location of the wrinkles, the amount, the depth, medical history and the level of cosmetic results you wish to achieve. Botox has been another effective tool in approaching wrinkle maintenance. Botox is a purified paralytic neurotoxin that blocks the transmitters from making deep muscle contractions in the face. This does not prevent you from making facial expressions, it just stops your face from making muscle contractions deep within the skin that ultimately cause harder to treat wrinkles. The face smoothes out and creates a more youthful expression.

Each approach leads to different levels of results and Dr. Rokhsar will be able to effectively decide which one will best work for your skin type.
