As we age, our skin loses some of its elasticity, which results in wrinkles. While there’s nothing wrong with having wrinkles, Dr. Joseph Guarino of Derma Cosmedica med spa in Hamilton, NJ knows that many people want to restore their youthful skin. There are several non-invasive options available to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and Dr. Guarino offers individual consultations to help you decide which option is best for your needs.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
Fine lines and wrinkles slowly become noticeable on the face over time, the result of collagen loss due to aging. Our natural skin produces collagen, an abundant protein in the body, which supports the elasticity and volume that gives our skin a smooth appearance.
However, over time this production declines and sets the stage for lines and wrinkles to become noticeable as volume decreases and the loss of elasticity allows the skin to sag. Addressing this issue is at the heart of many cosmetic treatments and is the key to restoring a more youthful appearance with smoother skin.
Med Spa Wrinkle Treatments
Botox is an injection administered by a licensed professional. It works by paralyzing the muscles in the face, reducing the appearance of fine lines. Many patients keep these benefits for several months, though this can change depending on how your body processes the injection.
Dysport is a prescription injection for adults who want a natural look. It is proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face.
Restylane is one of the most effective dermal fillers for restoring lost volume and reducing the visibility of lines wrinkles and deep folds in and around the face. It can “plump” those areas of your face that have lost their natural volume due to age, genetics, and environmental factors.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable collagen replacement treatment that offers gradual, lasting results for both men and women. Sculptra Aesthetic injections restore a protein known as poly-L-lactic acid and have also proven to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen over time.
