Wrinkle Treatments that Work!

Our faces are most susceptible to wrinkling as we age. The first signs of aging you most likely notice are the tiny lines around your eyes and cheeks, which are more apparent when you smile. With each year that goes by, you will begin noticing that those tiny lines turn into deeper, more defined lines.

Wrinkles are a product of the loss of collagen and elastin, which are caused by aging or exposure to the sun. Genes and smoking also play a role in wrinkles, and the drier the skin is, or the fairer the skin is, the more wrinkles tend to show. This is why men and women spend millions of dollars each year looking for wrinkle treatments that work.

The best wrinkle treatments are based on the efforts you make, or the outside remedies you can seek, such as cosmetic surgery. You can fight wrinkles yourself by making minor adjustments to your lifestyle, such as eating healthy foods such as antioxidants like fish and blueberries, drinking lots of water every day to keep your body hydrated, wearing sun block to protect your face from harmful sun rays, and making sure your body gets Vitamin A, which protects against skin problems.

With a little help from cosmetic surgery, there are ways to reverse wrinkles. Browlift, Facelift and BOTOX® injections can all make people look years younger, with one simple procedure.

Browlift is a solution for removing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, over the nose and on the forehead. Recovering from browlift surgery is fairly quick since most patients return to work and regular activities within 10 days.

 

Facelift remains in the top 5 most performed cosmetic surgery procedures every year. Both men and women undergo facelift to smooth-out wrinkles and tone facial contours. Facelift removes the deep lines and folds of skin on the face, to bring out more defined cheek bones and a slimmer facial outline.

BOTOX® remains the top non-invasive, physician-administered treatment used to remove facial wrinkles. BOTOX® can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet or laugh lines. In just one 10-minute treatment, the results can last several months.

Ask your plastic surgeon which wrinkle treatment or procedure is recommended for you. It is also important to ask about the long-term results, how many treatments or procedures you may need in the future and how you can prepare for recovery.

We can help you find a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area that has the expertise for giving you a look you can love.
