Understanding Wrinkle Treatments
The gradual development of wrinkles is the classic sign of accumulation of skin damage and aging. Premature aging may be accelerated by sun exposure, poor nutrition, over active facial expression muscles, tobacco exposure or skin disorders. Genetics play a role in skin texture and wrinkling as well. Persistent facial lines may mistakenly portray to others the look of worry, anger, frustration, or sadness. Regardless of the causes, there are many treatments to help hide, reduce, or even eliminate these unwanted lines.
Understanding the Types of Treatments for Facial Wrinkles
Prominent forehead creases, brow furrows, or eye lines (crows feet) produced by facial expression muscles can be treated by reducing the function of specific facial muscles. Botox or Dysport is injected in small amounts into facial muscles which temporarily weaken the muscles. This usually lasts for three to four months. It may take several days to take effect.
Fillers are also used to hide wrinkles and fine lines. These areas may include the smile lines, creases around the mouth and chin, and even for depressions in the skin from scarring. We can also inject fillers into the lips to make them fuller. Fillers generally last between 6 months and 1 year.
All treatments can be repeated. We ask that you not take any blood thinners, such as aspirin, advil, motrin, ibufrofen, excedrin, etc… for ten days prior to your treatment. Tylenol is fine.
Side effects may include some mild irritation at the injection site, redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site. All typically abate within a couple of hours. Bruising can be camouflaged with standard make up.

Smile lines, or nasolabial folds, run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. This is a popular treatment area that many women seek help with. While results vary, after just one JUVEDERM XC treatment most patients see a real difference, with a noticeable softening of the smile lines.
Marionette lines are the vertical facial lines and folds that form below the corners of the mouth. These lines can sometimes give the appearance of sagging and/or a downturned expression. While results vary, we also see a noticeable difference after using JUVEDERM XC to treat these lines.
Vertical lip lines are facial wrinkles above and around the lips and can appear over time due to ordinary lip muscle movement. However, environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress can also contribute to how the area around our lips ages and formation of vertical lip lines. The good news is that JUVEDERM XC dermal filler can soften those with typically just one treatment.
