Wrinkles, scars, and age spots might be a natural part of getting older, but there are steps you can take to reduce the effect aging has on your skin. We no longer have to settle for that older looking person in the mirror. For effective anti-aging results, more and more people, especially women, are turning to cosmetic dermatology. We’ve put together a list of some of the best anti-aging treatments offered at Bay Dermatology.
Botox is the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the U.S. It helps to reduce the frown lines in between the eyebrows and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. This treatment works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can’t contract. This makes wrinkles relax and soften. There is usually no recovery time for this cosmetic procedure, but it can take up to a week to see the effects. The results usually last about 3 to 4 months.
Dermal fillers can be composed of a variety of substances, some naturally occurring and some synthetic. One of the most common compounds used is hyaluronic acid. It is an injectable that is used beneath the skin to add volume and fullness to areas such as the lips, nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The results are immediate and can last from 6 to 9 months.
If you want to try something a little different, chemical peels may be just the thing for you. This is an excellent method to get rid of those pesky wrinkles and gives your skin a much more youthful, glowing complexion. Chemical peels are made of a solution that is applied to your face to activate a reaction to the skin therefore removing the outermost layers. You may need a few treatments to achieve your desired look, but the end result will be a softer, smoother and more youthful look.
Laser Therapy is a non-invasive treatment option to improve the appearance of aged or damaged skin. It’s becoming a top choice among medical professionals for effectively healing many common skin concerns. Through the use of intense, focused heat, the laser triggers the skin’s recovery response. This creates a spike in collagen production that can help tighten the skin and create a smoother complexion – without significant heat damage to the skin.
Microneedling has continued to rank at the top of skin-rejuvenating treatments for quite some time now. It can work wonders on reducing wrinkles. The dermatologist uses a tool, called a derma roller with tiny micro needles that create miniscule superficial punctures to your skin. These treatments will help stimulate and produce new collagen cells and produce great results with little downtime.
