It’s a fact that wrinkles make a person a look older. When you think of your grandparents’ appearance, wrinkles probably come to mind. While it is unlikely that you feel wrinkles make them look bad, it is likely that you do not envy their wrinkles. You want to try to look young as long as possible. Thankfully, you can benefit from the variety of cosmetic treatments that are on the market today to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
When it comes to choosing cosmetic treatments that minimize the appearance of wrinkles, it is first important to understand that there are different types of wrinkles, and each kind of wrinkle is going to require a different treatment. One type of wrinkle that you may be dealing with is called a static wrinkle; these happen as the result of aging. When you lose fat in your face, your skin becomes thinner, and the effects of gravity are more noticeable making your face look thinner, gaunt, and filled with wrinkles. One of the very best ways to treat these kinds of wrinkles is using dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to add more volume.
The other type of wrinkle that you are likely to experience is dynamic wrinkles. Every time you make a facial expression, perhaps smiling, crying, grimacing, or looking surprised, the muscles in your face make movements. This causes the skin on top to move as well and over time causing your face to crease. Over time, you are going to make the same expression multiple times and this is going to lead to wrinkles around your mouth and eyes. The best way to treat these dynamic wrinkles is using a product like Dysport®.
At Orange County Skin Lab, we know exactly how much Dysport® to inject and where exactly to inject it in order to minimize the appearance of your wrinkles. You will not be left with a face that cannot move or make normal expressions.
To qualify for Dysport® treatments, you must be over 18. While at this age, you are likely not experiencing dynamic wrinkles, and you are more likely to experience dynamic wrinkles when you get to be in your mid-30’s. As soon as you begin to see these wrinkles, come in for treatment. The earlier you begin to treat them, the better results you are going to experience. You are going to be left with skin that is smooth and fresh, making you look and feel fantastic.
If you are concerned that you are developing dynamic wrinkles, schedule a consultation at our office in San Juan! At Orange County Skin Lab, Dr. Michelle Hure will be happy to discuss Dysport® and your options for wrinkle treatments.
