Improve the signs of aging
Aging is a natural process, but your top Ballantyne dermatologist can help you to improve the signs of aging skin. The most common sign of aging is the appearance of wrinkles and lines in different areas of the face. Some of these lines result from the expressions we constantly make when we contract the underlying muscles, such as smiling or frowning. The contracting of these muscles usually cause scowl lines and crow’s feet. Wrinkles that appear in the folds of skin are not associated with expressions. These are soft tissue wrinkles that are seen when the face is at rest. They appear because the natural levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes. Board certified dermatologists offer a variety of treatments and solutions that can improve both types of wrinkles, and to restore a more youthful appearance.
Improving expression wrinkles
Neuromodulators can help reduce the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. These are usually administered by a clinician. Substances such as Botox®, Xeomin®, and Dysport® are injected into the facial muscles where the unwanted lines occur. They work because they make facial muscles relax by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles according to top Ballantyne dermatologist. These products are injected in a simple, rather painless procedure, with results lasting three to four months.
Improving soft tissue wrinkles
A filler is used to improve wrinkles that are apparent when the face is at rest according to top Ballantyne dermatologist. Your Charlotte dermatologist has a solution that can add volume to your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Filling agents are injected into the skin with a minimal amount of discomfort with immediate results that generally last six months to a year or longer. One such soft tissue filler is Juvederm®, a gel that can be injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is ideal for filling areas near the nose and mouth.
