Wrinkle Treatment

Skin ages all over the body, but much more so where there has been sun exposure. Changes brought on by sun damage (photoageing) include "dryness" (really roughness), sagginess, skin growths like keratoses ("liver spots"), and wrinkles.

Wrinkles in turn can be divided into two categories; fine, surface lines and deep furrows. Wrinkle treatments are in general much more effective for fine lines. Wrinkles are found primarily on the parts of the body where sun exposure is greatest. These areas especially include the face, neck, the backs of the hands, and the tops of the forearms.

There are several treatment options for wrinkles, namely creams and lotions, chemical peels, Botox injections, fillers and the use of laser.

 
 
  • Creams & Lotions
    These are the milder treatment options for wrinkles. These creams and lotions may contain ingredients like Vitamin A acid, fruit acids, antioxidants or moisturizers provide a certain amount of sun protection as well as mild improvement of wrinkles, making them less prominent.

  • Chemical Peels
    These peels make use of acids and penetrate deeper into the skin. These deeper peels do a better job of smoothing fine lines. Such peels do not require anesthesia. Mild sedation helps ease discomfort.

  • Botox
    Injection of botulinum toxin paralyzes muscles that produce the "frown lines" on the forehead and fine lines around the eyes as well as other wrinkles. Improvement lasts several months and must be repeated to sustain improvement. Safety depends again on the experience and competency of the physician.

  • Fillers
    Collagen injections and other injectable fillers give your skin a plumper, smoother appearance. Although collagen is the best known filler, there are many other substances skin doctor can use to plump up your skin, including fat from your own body and synthetic materials. Restylane is a clear gel. It contains hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in humans, so there's little chance for an allergic reaction. It's biodegradable, so your body will absorb it within about six months of the injection.

  • Laser
    Laser is passed several times over the area to be treated until the peel reaches the middle of the dermis, the skin's second layer. This helps stimulate the body's natural collagen synthesis, which plumps up sagging skin and wrinkles. Wrinkles are removed by destroying and removing the top layer of skin. When the skin laser wound heals, it becomes tightened and the wrinkles line disappears or become less prominent. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure for several months following the laser treatment.
