Treating Your Wrinkles
posted: May 12, 2022.
We offer various cosmetic options to target and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Wrinkles are just a part of life; however, that doesn’t mean you can’t turn to our dermatologist Dr. Marc Meulener for ways to smooth away these early signs of aging. Just because we’re all getting older doesn’t mean we have to look like it. Here are some of the ways our team at Choice Dermatology in Basking Ridge, Parlin, Union, NJ, can treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments we offer because it provides a simple, fast, and non-invasive way for Dr. Meulener to take years off your appearance without needing surgery or committing to lifelong results. Botox is an excellent introduction to the world of cosmetic treatments because it’s a relatively painless way to smooth away lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and mouth in minutes.
Results last 3-4 months but can last up to 6 months. So if you want to refresh your appearance but aren’t ready to commit to permanent results, Botox could be an excellent treatment. There is no recovery period, and patients don’t need to take off work to get treatment. It only takes a couple of minutes to get Botox. You can come in during your lunch break or on a Saturday and get excellent results.
Despite what you might think, dermal fillers and Botox do not work the same way. Botox uses a specific neurotoxin that temporarily prevents the facial muscles from contracting, while dermal fillers increase volume in sagging, sunken areas of the skin caused by aging.
Fillers are often used to plump up the lips or cheeks and smooth lines around the nose and mouth. Depending on the dermal filler you choose, results can last from six months to several years. Talk with our doctors to determine which type of dermal filler is right for you based on your skincare needs.
This rejuvenating skin treatment uses a handheld rolling device that contains tiny needles. As the device is gently glided over the skin, it causes microscopic damage to the outside layer of skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response.
It also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and superficial scarring. It can also be used to firm and tighten skin. This is another minimally invasive procedure that also boasts no downtime.
