WRINKLE REDUCTION TREATMENTS
As we age, the years start to show on our face in the form of wrinkles and lines. Repeated movement of muscles and sun damage breaks down collagen in the skin and make the skin loose, as a result of which lines and wrinkles begin to show. Some people due to their lifestyle and jobs have to travel excessively in sunlight or are exposed to sun rays quite often. Such people start developing wrinkles at a much earlier age and look much older than their actual age. If unwanted lines and wrinkles are haunting you and making you look older than you actually are, then Skinhealers is at your service.
Q. What is the difference between static and dynamic wrinkles?
Static wrinkles are the ones that are there even when you are at rest and not animating. That means when you are not using your muscles to express your emotions like frowning, smiling, etc. Dynamic wrinkles are the ones that appear when you are animating, that is, smiling, frowning, surprised, etc. So basically, dynamic wrinkles appear on motion and disappear at rest whereas static wrinkles are always present, even at rest, and might get more exaggerated when in motion.
Q. What is the treatment for dynamic wrinkles?
The best treatment for dynamic wrinkles is the US FDA approved Botox®injections. It helps relax the muscles as a result of which you can smile, frown or get surprised but the wrinkles just won’t show. Bonus! The skin gets tighter and shinier and you get the magical glow on your face. Also, one may notice upto 50% improvement in static wrinkles as well.
Q. How is Botox® treatment done?
A numbing cream is applied to the patients face for 30 minutes after which the medicine is injected into the superficial muscles which bring about wrinkles
Q. How long do the results last?
The results last for about 3-8 months varying from patient to patient.
Q. Are there any precautions that one must take before getting Botox®done?
Before the treatment, you need to avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or high doses of Vitamin E supplements. It’s very important to discuss with your Doctor about your allergies or if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, so that he may prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence.
Q. What is the treatment for static wrinkles?
Light weight fillers are the best treatment for static wrinkles wherein the treating doctor fills the groove of the wrinkle with a filler so as to form a smooth surface. The results last for 6-12 months. For details on fillers, one can read the antiageing fillers section
Q. What is the treatment for fine lines?
For fine lines , one can try topical medications containing retinol. Other than that a quick fix for fine lines which appear on smiling or frowning, mesobotox is an excellent solution. It is performed by our expert Dr. Amanjot and can be used to get rid of fine lines on cheeks, around mouth and on forehead. The results last for around 3 months
Q. What are the other treatment options who have phobia for injections ?
Even though, botox treatment is very safe and effective, some patients look for other options for the fear/phobia of injections. For such patients there are other options which aim at building collagen in the skin and improve skin elasticity thereby reducing both static and dynamic wrinkles to some extent. These options include:
- Laser skin rejuvenation using ablative and non ablative lasers
- Microneedling skin tightening
- Microneedling RF
