As we get older, our skin loses some of its elasticity, resulting in wrinkles and lost volume or “plumpness.” Everyone wants to have smooth, youthful skin, which is why Dr. Paul Willis, a cosmetic doctor in Shrewsbury, MA, offers several minimally-invasive, effective treatments to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
Our skin naturally produces collagen, which supports skin’s elasticity and volume and gives it a smooth appearance. As we age, we produce less of this valuable protein, and skin slowly develops wrinkles, fine lines, and can have an almost deflated appearance.
There is nothing wrong with having wrinkles, but many patients seek cosmetic treatment to restore a more youthful appearance. Some treatments are designed to work directly with the muscles in the area to be treated, while others work to restore collagen production. Dr. Willis can work with you to determine the best course of action based on your cosmetic goals.
How to Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles
Botox is an injection that paralyzes certain muscles in the face, reducing the appearance of fine lines. Many patients keep these benefits for several months, though this can change depending on how your body processes the injection.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler from the makers of Botox. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, is one of the latest advancements in filler technology and has become a favored compound for restoring volume and fullness to the face.
If you have used hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm in the past, you may want to try Radiesse for longer lasting correction. Radiesse utilizes calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres to stimulate collagen production in problems areas of the face. The microspheres form a scaffold through which your own body’s collagen can grow, making it the ideal choice for facial shaping and contouring.
Belotero Balance can be used to target deep facial folds around the nose and mouth as well as fine lines around the lips. Like other hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers, Belotero Balance works by restoring volume to the face, smoothing away wrinkles and facial folds.
