When they begin to appear — wrinkles, lines, and folds — it’s always alarming, especially for women. But crow’s feet, the elevens between your brows, sagging jowls, they’re inevitable signs that you’re getting older.
Of course, you don’t have to take their appearance without a fight. You can opt for surgical solutions such as a facelift or brow lift, or you can go the non-surgical route at Creative Image Laser Solutions.
Here are some options.
Botox was first approved by the FDA in 2002 to address wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. Today, it is by far the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world. Botox works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contraction. Wrinkles are formed by repeated muscle contractions such as when you squint, smile, or laugh. So, if you have wrinkles caused by actions, Botox is for you.
Aside from repeated muscle contractions, volume loss is also a significant factor in facial aging, along with a general slackening of the skin. Think sunken cheeks, sagging jowls, and nasolabial folds. Dermal fillers, as their name implies, fill in areas of the face where soft tissue has decreased and where the skin has become loose. This creates shadows, hollows, lines, and creases. Fillers fill them back in.
Resurface with chemical peels and laser treatments
If injections aren’t your thing, laser treatments and chemical peels are ideal for improving the appearance of acne scars, age spots, and superficial wrinkles. These treatments usually remove the outermost skin layer, exposing healthier skin beneath.
