Numerous changes occur in your appearance throughout the aging process. The natural decline in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid that happens with age leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases.
When you notice signs of aging creeping into your appearance, you may be tempted to stock up on every anti-aging product on the market. While certain creams, moisturizers, and serums can give you healthier skin, they rarely make a difference in terms of age-related changes.
Wrinkle removal treatment from a cosmetic professional may be a more effective way to tackle signs of aging in your skin. Treatments like dermal fillers and neuromodulators can resolve age-related changes without surgical intervention, recovery, or downtime.
Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek offers a variety of wrinkle removal procedures, including Restylane and Botox injectables. Read on to learn more about these wrinkle removal treatments.
What Is Wrinkle Removal Treatment?
Wrinkle removal treatment refers to cosmetic procedures that aim to reduce the appearance of age-related changes in the skin. There are various types of wrinkle removal procedures, both surgical and non-surgical.
Surgical methods like facelift procedures are extensive and require anesthesia, but they can be effective at creating a more youthful appearance. On the other hand, non-surgical options are simple outpatient procedures that are also highly effective.
This makes non-surgical wrinkle removal one of the most common cosmetic treatments patients seek.
Common Methods of Non-Surgical Wrinkle Removal
Two of the most popular methods of wrinkle removal are dermal fillers and neuromodulator injectables. Both of these treatments are minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures that don’t require any recovery or downtime afterward. Learn more about each of these treatments below.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that aim to increase volume under the skin. As you age, the hyaluronic acid and collagen production in your skin decreases. Hyaluronic acid and collagen work together to give the skin a fuller, more youthful appearance.
When these decline, it can lead to hollow cheeks and sullen under eyes. Your skin may appear to sag and wrinkle. Dermal fillers can give your skin a smooth, more firm look by increasing the volume under the top layer of your skin. Three popular dermal filler lines are Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvéderm.
Restylane is a line of dermal filler products that add fullness to the skin. One product from the Restylane line, Restylane Lyft, is designed to target deep wrinkles, restoring volume under the skin and creating a smoother appearance.
Restylane Lyft (also known as Perlane) and other Restylane products are made with a clear, injectable gel containing hyaluronic acid. These treatments are most often used around the mouth and cheeks to resolve skin folds and facial wrinkles.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that uses an ultrafine needle to add volume under the skin and combat certain signs of aging. The injectable Radiesse serum is most often used to reduce nasolabial folds and wrinkles around the eyes.
Juvéderm is a popular line of dermal fillers that can smooth wrinkles and create an overall more youthful appearance.
Products in the Juvéderm line contain hyaluronic acid, which increases volume under the skin, adding fullness that makes skin look smooth and firm. Juvéderm can also be used to enhance the lips, cheekbones, and jawline.
Neuromodulators are a type of non-surgical wrinkle treatment that work directly with the nerves and muscles in the face to reduce signs of aging. One common cause of wrinkles, fine lines, and creases is the continuous facial expressions that you make.
Years of frowning, laughing, and smiling make little difference when you are young and your skin has great elasticity. As you age, the natural decrease in collagen and elastin makes your skin lose its elasticity. Your skin is unable to bounce back from constant facial expressions, leaving creases and folds around your mouth, eyes, and forehead.
Neuromodulators work by temporarily paralyzing nerves and muscles in the face, limiting facial movement. Once facial expressions are subdued, this treatment reduces wrinkles and prevents more from forming.
Botox, a popular neuromodulator, is one of the most common wrinkle removal treatments that patients seek. This injectable temporarily paralyzes overactive facial nerves, limiting movement of the skin. Botox is most often used around the mouth, forehead, and eye area.
The effects of Botox can last around three to four months, effectively smoothing crow’s feet and forehead creases.
Jeuveau is a new cosmetic injectable that resolves signs of aging by interacting with nerves and muscles in the face to stop wrinkle formation. This injectable is designed specifically to reduce frown lines, the creases that form between the eyebrows with certain facial expressions.
Who Is the Best Candidate for Wrinkle Removal Treatment?
If you’ve noticed signs of aging in your appearance, you may be a good candidate for a wrinkle removal procedure. Older patients who have fine lines, wrinkles, and forehead creases due to the natural aging process may benefit from wrinkle removal.
Treatments like Botox can also be a good preventative option for younger patients. Limiting overactive facial movement can help stop the formation of excess wrinkles when started at an earlier age.
