The sands of time are rarely in our favor, especially when it comes to the appearance of our skin. As the body ages, everyone develops wrinkles. Wrinkles can negatively affect our appearance and confidence, but Waccamaw Dermatology has the solution for wrinkle reduction treatment!
Wrinkles, the natural lines and creases that form in the skin, become more prominent over the years due to three main factors.
First, and the most commonly thought of, aging. Our skin produces fewer natural oils and becomes less elastic as we age. Additionally, the fat around our faces diminishes, which reduces the plump, younger appearance.
Second, exposure to the sun. Ultraviolet light speeds up the aging process because it breaks down the skin’s connective tissue in the dermis layer of the skin.
Third, repeated facial expressions. Reactions such as smiling, squinting, and frowning are a natural part of our everyday life. As we age, our skin does not bounce back into place easily; thus, the grooves made from those facial positions become permanent.
Other factors may contribute to or speed up the creation of wrinkles, such as certain medical conditions, how you treat your skin and smoking.
While aging is perfectly natural, there are options for wrinkle reduction treatment. At Waccamaw Dermatology, we recommend Botox or Dysport as a form of treatment. These injectables are a form of wrinkle reduction treatment that create a signal block to relax the muscles in the targeted zone.
Botox and Dysport are commonly used to treat wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, across the forehead, on the chin, and at the corners of the mouth.
If approved for treatment, Botox and Dysport are temporary injections used in a specific target zone. These treatments reduce muscle activity in that area without affecting the rest of the face. Usually, patients see results in two to three days and can expect it to last up to five months. Please note that these treatments are for moderate to severe glabellar lines only. Alternative severity or other medical conditions may disqualify you from this treatment. However, you may be eligible for alternative wrinkle reduction treatments.
At Waccamaw Dermatology, we strive to provide the best clinical care and patient experience possible. We offer individualized treatment plans for our patients based on their specific needs and goals. Give us a call to schedule your wrinkle reduction treatment, or review our website for more information.
