Forehead Wrinkle Treatment in Severna Park, MD
Wrinkles can happen to anyone and for multiple reasons, such as:
Aging – As you age, you lose elasticity in your facial skin and muscles. This is mainly because your skin’s ability to retain moisture and oils decreases over time. This happens to everyone but at different rates.
Facial Muscle Use – Frown lines and crow’s feet can develop over time just from smiling, talking and squinting.
Sun Damage – The sun is very damaging to the skin in long exposures. Not wearing sunscreen or staying out too long in the sun can lead to wrinkle appearances.
Smoking – Smoking curbs your skin’s collagen, which is a vital piece to the structure of your skin.
There are multiple ways to treat wrinkles from injecting low-level toxins into your facial muscles, to using derm fillers. We partner with a few companies that offer various ways to treat wrinkles, all with non-invasive techniques and typically quick procedures.
Botulinum toxins, which are used for BOTOX and Xeomin treatment, blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead which reduces their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and eyes. This is a quick lO-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery.
These treatments are used to improve a patient’s appearance by lifting and increasing volume of wrinkles and folds in the facial area to be treated. It is a gel implant that augments and bolsters the elasticity of the skin to provide a smooth and supple look. The gel is injected deeply into the dermis and supplements the body’s natural hyaluronic acid that is depleted by the aging process.
