As our skin ages, it gradually loses its major constituents: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin; elastin allows our skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles; hyaluronic acid helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin. The facial lines that appear when you smile or frown simply disappear when you stop smiling or frowning. As we age, collagen loss allows the lines and wrinkles to remain and deepen over time.
The forehead and eyebrows are an integral part of facial expression and overall facial character. As we age, drooping eyebrows can create a tired look. Creases or “the elevens” between the eyebrows can create a stern, unhappy look.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane®, Juvéderm™, Radiesse, Cosmoderm, Cosmoplast, Fraxel®, Intense Pulse Light (IPL), Microdermabrasion, and Custom Medical Peels and Facials are all used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and creases.
