Many wrinkles are actually creases that have been etched into the skin by repeatedly making the same expressions over the years, causing collagen fibers to break down in the dermis. These "expression lines", often called frown lines or crow's feet, are due to the contraction of muscles under the skin. As a muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and disappear.
Botulinum Toxin Injections
Botulinum toxin is an injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles associated with expression, such as frown lines in the forehead, furrows between the eyebrows, crow's feet around the eyes, and neck creasing. Botulinum toxin injections can also treat excessive sweating in the underarms and teeth clenching.
Fillers are an injectable treatment that can be used to reshape and smooth the surface of aging skin, particularly nasolabial folds, lip lines, and drooping mouth corners. Dermal fillers can also be used to fill in areas that have lost volume, restoring a youthful fullness to your face and volume to your lips.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment. When injected into the scalp, it can promote hair growth. When injected into the face, it can treat skin hollowing, discoloration, and inflammation. Facial injection areas include the tear troughs to address undereye bags or circles and facial hollows in the temples, cheeks, and mouth corners. PRP can also treat scars, injuries, and stretch marks.
