The 4 Best Ways to Smooth Facial Wrinkles and Lines
Facial wrinkles and lines can start appearing as soon as age 35 in both women and men. Seeking ways to reduce wrinkles and lines as soon as they appear is at the top of many people’s to-do lists. While aging skin is inevitable, there are advanced procedures that dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute can provide to help you look as young as you feel!
After an initial consultation, a dermatologist will be able to recommend and provide a variety of treatments to help you achieve flawless and younger-looking skin. The four best ways to repair and rejuvenate your skin include dermal fillers, Botox, XEOMIN, and Fraxel Re:store.
Dermal fillers, often referred to as soft tissue fillers, are designed to be injected beneath the skin to add volume and fullness. Dermal fillers treat different signs of aging. They can fill in shallow areas of the face, remove wrinkles under the eyes, and soft static wrinkles, especially on the lower face. Results vary depending on which dermal filler is used and can last from six months to up to two years or longer. The cost for dermal fillers varies from $600-$900 per treatment.
Did you know Botox is used for both cosmetic and therapeutic needs? For cosmetic purposes, Botox is one of the most commonly used treatments to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults. Botox requires injections into the muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines to temporarily reduce muscle activity. The treatment takes 10 minutes to complete and requires minimal downtime. Results often appear within 24 to 48 hours, lasting nearly four months. The average cost of Botox ix $385.
XEOMIN is a neurotoxin designed to block the release of chemicals that cause frown lines and help to soften them in between the eyebrows. The 10-20 minute treatment will include an injection of XEOMIN into your forehead muscles. You can expect to see results as soon as three to four days after the procedure with the maximum effect seen 30 days after treatment. Results typically last three months. The average cost of XEOMIN is $275.
Fraxel Re:store laser treatments are specifically designed to treat damaged skin by stimulating the body’s natural production of new collagen and skin cells. During the 20-30 minute treatment, the energy from the lasers will create tiny columns of thermal destruction that help stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This sounds intense, but it only feels like a little prickle on your skin. This treatment is best for general resurfacing and provides a quick healing time with only a few days of downtime. However, it will require between three and five sessions every six to eight weeks. The cost ranges from $1200-$1600 per session.
