When it comes to getting rid of wrinkles, there are a lot of treatment options out there. But they don’t exactly deliver the kind of results you’ve been looking for. Over-the-counter creams fail to diminish wrinkles. Designer serums feel good, but don’t have as much of an impact as you’d like. Even facial masks leave you feeling a bit disappointed.
So when it comes down to it, what is the best non-surgical treatment for wrinkles?
Botox and Dermal Fillers for Wrinkles
Unsurprisingly, Botox and dermal fillers remain two of the best non-surgical treatment options for wrinkles and fine lines. While they both attack wrinkles in different ways, the end results are the same: wrinkles are smoothed away, leaving behind younger and more radiant-looking skin.
Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid gel to gently lift the dermal tissue, thus acting as scaffolding in areas where volume loss has pronounced the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox, however, uses a special protein that interrupts the brain’s signals to a muscle’s nerve endings at the injection site. This effect paralyzes the muscle, leading the dermal tissue above it to appear more smooth, relaxed, and wrinkle-free.
Most people are good candidates for Botox and dermal fillers, making them excellent options for clients who want an effective yet non-surgical approach to treating wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox & Ultherapy Consultations Available
Ultherapy for Skin Tightening
Injections aren’t your only options for treating wrinkles; Ultherapy – an FDA-approved ultrasound technology – can help minimize lines by tightening and toning skin tissue.
Here’s how it works: Ultherapy is administered on the targeted treatment area (like the face, neck, chest, etc.). Ultrasound energy penetrates the skin to the subdermal tissue underneath, causing it to heat up. Once the skin becomes heated, the tissue contracts, leading to long-term skin tightening. This tightening effect is most effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines, especially crepey wrinkles that are common on the neck and chest.
I was a recent patient of Dr. Eric Ahn., for two different procedures, one involving the Botox and the other was fillers to my nasolabial folds to correct smile lines. After consulting with him, I was impressed by his calm, caring personality and professional approach. I never felt rushed during my visits (a rarity with doctors), and he listened carefully and then provided detailed answers and options. I’m very satisfied with the results and will recommend Dr. Eric Ahn to friends and family without reservation. Faith whom as well went out of her way to take great care of me with her amazing knowledge and treatments that they offer. Entire staff here are always perfect and professional.
