Wrinkles are an obvious and unmistakable sign of aging skin. Those facial lines may have unassuming nicknames such as crow’s feet, marionette folds, or laugh lines, but in the end they are just wrinkles.
Today, people do not have to live with wrinkles.
*The Four Major Wrinkle Treatments *
Wrinkle Treatment Number 1: Botox
Botox was the first commercial brand for botulinum toxin, but other botulinum toxin preparations are available, including Dysport and Xeomin. While there are some subtle differences between the brands, all forms of botulinum toxin do the same thing: They relax the muscles that cause facial wrinkles.
Wrinkle Treatment Number 2: Dermal Fillers
Instead of relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, injectable dermal fillers fill in those unwanted skin crevices. Injectable dermal fillers can be temporary or permanent. Temporary dermal fillers may last up to a year while permanent fillers can last 4 to 6 years or more.
Wrinkle Treatment Number 3: Chemical Peels
As the name suggests, a chemical peel is a chemical that is applied to the surface of the skin to destroy a certain number of skin layers. Depending on the chemical used, a chemical peel can be superficial, medium, or deep. The type of chemical peel depends on the type and depth of the wrinkle. Deeper wrinkles, as you would expect, usually require deep chemical peels.
Wrinkle Treatment Number 4: Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation has become the standard treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on the type of wrinkle and the patient’s preferences, the medical professional will use ablative or non-ablative laser treatments. The professionals at Bella Sana use the Cutera XEO laser system, which offers the flexibility of both types of wrinkle treatment. Laser light energy diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promotes collagen formation, making skin look healthier and younger.
