Non-surgical treatments for fine lines and wrinkles
- Posted on: Oct 15 2019
The signs of aging are quick to develop on the facial area. In fact, this is often the first area patients recognize changes as they progress through their adult years. The face naturally loses collagen and elastin stores over the course of time, especially after around the age of 30. Men and women will then discover the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients with mild to moderate development of imperfections on the skin caused by skin laxity may be considered appropriate candidates for non-surgical treatments such as cosmetic injectables.
What are cosmetic injectables?
Instead of plastic surgeries such as face lifts, patients may want a solution to their aging skin that does not require invasive treatments. This is where cosmetic injectables come to the rescue! Cosmetic injectables may include various types, including:
- Hyaluronic acid injectables
At the practice of Dr. Matthew J. Trovato, patients can ask about these treatments and decide if they are appropriate candidates. Hyaluronic acid injectables, such as Juvéderm, provides immediate results. This is because hyaluronic acid, which is naturally-occurring in the skin and body, attracts water molecules. These gel injectables are injected directly into the wrinkles and folds to eliminate them and allow patients to look more youthful as a result.
Another option is that of the neuromodulator. Botox is a well-known brand of neuromodulator. Botox works by reducing muscle contractions, which in turn smooths the skin and reduces wrinkles and folds. Because this injectable is used directly into the muscles, the results occur over the course of a week and will remain for many months. To maintain results, patients will obtain routine injections.
Which one is right for me?
There are several options available in our practice, including:
During a consultation appointment and initial evaluation, our team can help patients decide which one is best for their specific needs.
