As we grow older, we unfortunately develop deep lines and creases in our skin that reveal our age. These wrinkles can cause us to look tired and worn out. But luckily, they do not have to last forever. There are a variety of non-surgical cosmetic treatments available that can reverse the effects of aging and gravity by erasing or reducing wrinkles. Dr. Chernoff has suggested the best of these treatments below.
With an estimated 11 million people having received the treatment, Botox is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures around. The injectable treatment has achieved this level of popularity because of its safety, simplicity and effectiveness. Plastic surgeons use Botox to improve the appearance of worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles that you have accumulated over the years. Botox does this by blocking impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles that are related to expression lines, leaving the overlying skin smooth and unwrinkled. The smoothing results usually last three to six months.
Like Botox, Sculptra Aesthetic treats wrinkles with injections. But, unlike Botox, the procedure is less immediately noticeable and sudden than other types of wrinkle treatments. Sculptra gradually transforms your face, providing subtle and natural-looking results. Poly-L-lactic is injected to help replace the collagen lost due to aging. This collagen is a natural structural protein that is found in our skin to help support a smooth and youthful facial appearance. The procedure takes only 15 to 30 minutes to complete, and, after the first series of injections, results last for two years.
If you are looking to immediately improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that lie near your skin’s surface, Juvederm might be the best option for you. Juvederm is a smooth gel injectable filler. Unlike the treatments above, it utilizes hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all species that is highly attracted to water and can bind to it. In this way, Juvederm fills in your wrinkles by attracting water to the site. This allows for very natural looking wrinkle correction.
LaViv uses a patented process to reverse the effects of aging by supporting your own natural processes. This injectable treatment expands your dermal cells and activates your “protein repair system,” which produces collagen. This allows for a gradual thickening of the dermal layer of your skin, resulting in long-term skin rejuvenation. Through this process, LaViv subtly corrects wrinkles for a naturally smooth appearance.
Deeply formed wrinkles can now be treated with Dermal Optical Thermolysis, or DOT therapy. How does it treat these complicated conditions? Well, DOT therapy utilizes fractional CO2 laser technology to shrink the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. But unlike other fractional systems, DOT laser is the only CO2 laser that utilizes two innovative technologies to allow for even more effective treatment. It also features a special algorithm developed to improve post-treatment recovery. The procedure is very quick and can be performed in-office. It involves minimal downtime and risk.
If you are looking to improve the overall quality of your skin with improved skin texture and reduced fine lines, wrinkles and scarring, this laser photo therapy might be the right treatment for you. Laser facial using Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is a non-invasive treatment that is quick, safe and effective. It utilizes the power of heat and light energy to improve the texture and tone of your skin. Treatment is virtually pain free and takes about ten to fifteen minutes to complete, with no downtime or recovery period.
These quick treatments are sure to restore youth to your appearance with very little recovery time. If you are interested in any of these wrinkle-erasing treatments, feel free to contact us.
