Wrinkles are one of the most common of all skin complaints today. Many women who have wrinkles, whether it is just the start of fine lines or it is deeply entrenched folds, want to find a non-surgical solution for wrinkles. While there is a whole host of potions and creams that claim to remove wrinkles on the market today, none of them can produce the kind of true wrinkle reduction that the following procedures can. All of the following wrinkle reduction treatments are an excellent alternative to a facelift and require very minimal downtime or no downtime at all.

Botox

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable wrinkle relaxing treatment that takes only about 5 to 15 minutes in Dr. Patterson’s office. Tens of millions of Botox treatments have been done, with an excellent safety record. While Botox treatment can have beautiful results, having a doctor with a high level of expertise is essential for patients who want the most efficient targeted wrinkle reduction. Dr. Patterson focuses on reducing wrinkles while producing a completely natural and rejuvenated look.

Juvederm

While Botox focuses on relaxing wrinkles, Juvederm is a dermal filler that is used to plump up the skin in areas where volume has been lost. It is highly effective in areas like acne scars, the lips, and the smile lines. Juvederm is an FDA-approved treatment that has immediate results. It is safe for use because it is made of a substance (hyaluronic acid) that the human body has naturally.

MicroPen

The MicroPen treatment is a treatment that encourages the body to help itself heal. During the MicroPen treatment, the body’s natural ability to restore blemished and damaged skin is activated through tiny needles. Problems like wrinkles, acne scars, and any other type of damaged skin can be very effectively resolved with the use of MicroPen treatments.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a non-surgical way to achieve more youthful looking, brighter, and overall more beautiful skin. There are several different types of chemical peels available. Peels range from the SkinMedica Illuminize Peel for people with mild skin issues to the Trichloroacetic Acid Peel, which can correct major skin issues like scarring and facial lines. There are several stages of peels in between, as well. The Obagi line of Blue Peels are also very popular with patients looking for brighter and firmer looking skin.

Sublative Rejuvenation

Sublative rejuvenation is one of the newest advances in skin treatments today. With this treatment, carefully focused radio frequencies deep within the skin prompt it to produce new collagen and elastin. No harm is done to the top layers of skin since all the impact occurs under the surface. This treatment can help tighten the skin, improve skin tone, improve elasticity, and reduce lines.

Kybella

Kybella is a treatment for stubborn double chins. Many people struggle to get rid of their double chin, even after they have successfully lost weight and exercised regularly. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that is injected into the area with the excess fat cells (the double chin.) The treatment disrupts the fat cells, causing them to release their fat. The fat is eliminated normally via the lymphatic system — no suction or surgery required.

Complete Skin Care Regimen

A high-quality skin care regimen can make all the difference in how the skin looks, both now and in future years. For patients who have non-surgical procedures like Botox, Juvederm, Chemical Peels, and Kybella, it is especially important to maintain those beautiful results with quality products. The Skin Medica TNS Essential Serum is a standout product thanks to its 7 unique antioxidants and growth factors that prompt the body to grow new collagen. Another skin care product that may be especially useful for patients who are concerned about aging is Skin Medica HA5. The body ceases to produce new hydrochloric acid to keep the skin hydrated after a person reaches their 20s. However, Skin Medica HA5 prompts the body to continue producing hydrochloric acid, as well as pulling moisture from the air to help keep skin hydrated. Everyone needs a top notch sunscreen, and Skin Medica Total Defense with sunscreen is among the best available today. This sunscreen shields the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. By the time the skin feels hot, some damage may already be done, so Skin Medica Total Defense with sunscreen prevents that damage before it can occur.
