The Top Treatments for Reducing Wrinkles and Eliminating Lines on the Face
Many people seem to think that invasive surgery is required in order for people to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and eliminate lines on the face. That is definitely not the case. Dr Moore is St Louis' skin care specialist offering aesthetic treatments that can help avoid going under the knife.
Let's take a moment right now to consider some of the top treatments out there for wrinkle reduction and facial rejuvenation. During your visit to the practice, we'll help you figure out which treatment would be ideal for you.
Basic Wrinkle Prevention Is Not Always Enough
There are a few basics that people can do to help prevent deep lines and wrinkles from forming. This includes:
- Staying well-hydrated with water
- Moisturizing daily
- Being well-rested
- Wearing sunblock when outdoors
- Avoiding prolonged sun exposure
- Not smoking
- Not drinking alcohol in excess
Even if you do all of the above, the natural effects of aging can lead to fine lines and wrinkles. This is why facial rejuvenation treatments are so important to consider.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections
BOTOX® cosmetic injections are one of the most popular wrinkle treatments around. BOTOX® injections will cause the muscles in the injection site to freeze, preventing muscle contractions from occurring and thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles in those areas. BOTOX® injections are ideal for forehead furrows, crow's feet, and various lines that are common around the mouth.
Dermal Filler Injections
Another popular option for addressing lines and wrinkles on the face are dermal filler injections. These include substances such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Hylaform®. These dermal fillers are used to fill in the lines, hollows, and sunken portions of the face. By doing this, they cause lines and wrinkles to become less visible and/or less prominent.
Fat Transfer Injections
Similar in some ways to dermal fillers, fat injections involve the removal of fat from one part of the body so that it can be used as a dermal filler to address lines and wrinkles on the face. This provides two benefits: one, patients undergo a little bit of liposuction for fine body sculpting, and two, patients also achieve excellent anti-aging results.
Lumecca® Skin Rejuvenation
Lumecca® refers to the state-of-the-art use of intense pulsed light treatments on a patient's skin. The Lumecca® treatment takes roughly half and hour, with additional sessions performed roughly every three weeks to achieve optimal results. The heat generated by the Lumecca® technology helps stimulate collagen production in the skin, reducing wrinkles and making you look younger and more refreshed. Due to its advanced design, Lumecca® achieves dramatic results in 1 to 3 treatments versus older technology requiring 5-6 treatments.
Fractora™: Fractional Skin Resurfacing
Fractora™ skin resurfacing works on similar principles as FotoFacial RF®. Small pins are used to make contact with the patient's skin, generating gentle points of heat in the treatment zones and stimulating collagen production in the patient's skin. This tightens the skin, reduces wrinkles, and improves overall skin texture as well.
Chemical Peels and Facials
The old standbys are sometimes some of the best. Chemical peels and facials are ideal for addressing those fine lines and wrinkles on the face, helping you look rejuvenated, refreshed, and more relaxed in the process.
