Wrinkles and lines on the face are a normal part of aging. Lost elasticity and volume in the skin create these creases, often where facial muscles contract or move. From worry and frown lines across the forehead to crow’s feet around the eyes or lip lines around the mouth, there are many wrinkles that appear as you get older. Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center has a wide range of non-surgical treatment options for wrinkles available at our facility in Irving, TX.
When you scrunch your eyebrows together or squint your eyes in the sun, you create creases in your skin. In youth, the skin flattens back to its normal shape once you stop the muscle movement. As your skin ages, it no longer has the same elasticity. Dynamic wrinkles like frown, worry and smile lines begin to stay etched in the skin, even when the face is at rest. There are a few different options to reduce the wrinkles on your brow and around your eyes.
Botox for Wrinkles
Botox® is FDA-approved for treatment of worry, frown and smile (crow’s feet) lines. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that create these specific lines or wrinkles. The treatment can be completed in about 15 minutes, and the effects begin to show a few days after the procedure. Botox wrinkle treatment can last for 3-4 months before another round of injections is needed.
Facial Fillers for Facial Lines
Facial fillers use substances like hyaluronic acid to add volume under the skin. For wrinkles, this can plump the skin to smooth creases. Fine wrinkles can be eliminated, and even deep lines like the nasolabial fold can be reduced with the use of dermal filler injections. Most facial fillers last several months or longer before the effects dissipate.
Anti-Aging Skin Treatments
There are many ways to improve the elasticity of the skin and reduce wrinkles on the face. Laser treatments, collagen induction therapy (CIT), skin tightening and chemical peels are all options to improve the youthfulness of the skin.
