A Smoother, Younger Looking Face
One popular myth is that only a facelift will remove wrinkles – this is completely false! A facelift only fixes saggy skin. There are better, more natural-looking options available today when it comes to treating wrinkles.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are injectable substances that block signals causing muscle contraction. They typically result in dramatic fading and even disappearance of wrinkles for a few months (or for longer, if re-injected).
Fillers and Lasers
Fraxel lasers are powerful devices that target damaged skin and stimulate it to produce collagen and new skin cells. Fraxel is considered the gold standard in laser treatment for wrinkles. Fraxel causes actual regeneration of the skin from the inside out. There are many options to wrinkle removal. Other devices that Dr. Rokhsar often uses to reduce wrinkles are CO2 lasers for resurfacing, Ultherapy and Thermage.
Fillers are also used as an effective wrinkle removal treatment. Botulinum injections such as Botox work to reduce the use of unnecessary micromusclar facial movements, in order to smooth out and reduce wrinkles. Fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and Sculptra are also effective in restoring fullness and youthful appearance to the face. They work by smoothing out wrinkles and filling in certain hollowness the face may have taken on over the years.
Surgical options for wrinkle reduction are facelifts, mini facelifts, jowl lifts, and eyelifts.
