As our skin ages, we begin to notice folds, wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume. The fat deposits responsible for plump cheeks and skin begin to diminish as we age; once-taut skin then begins to sag and loosen.
Collagen and elastin fibers are responsible for providing the fullness and even texture in youthful faces. Exposure to UV light (sunlight) breaks down the connective tissue in collagen and elastin fibers. Repetitive facial expressions (even smiling) create indentations in muscle tissue and over time these indentations become permanent, revealing fine lines and wrinkles. Science also shows that our facial skeleton and its soft tissue changes as we age, causing a loss of definition.
Wrinkles & Volume Loss Treatments
There are a number of procedures and products Georgia Skin Cancer & Aesthetic Dermatology offers our patients that will help boost volume while fading fine lines and wrinkles. Because no two faces are alike and there are so many potential cosmetic treatment options and products, we will help you choose the right treatment program designed specifically for you and your lifestyle.
- Botox® and Dysport® block chemical signals to nerves, temporarily relaxing facial muscles. It is especially helpful in the reduction of moderate to severe wrinkles around the brow, forehead, and eyes.
- Juvéderm® XC and Restylane are dermal hyaluronic acid-based gel fillers that instantly smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles in areas such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
- Voluma , Restylane Lyft, and Radiesse® are deep fillers that instantly add volume to your cheeks, lower face, and hands.
- Cutera® Laser Genesis uses laser technology to target microvasculature structures deep in the layers of the skin. Exposure to these lasers stimulates collagen production, aiding in the reversal of wrinkle development.
After your anti-aging procedure, exclusive products are available for continued use at home to help to maintain your results. Our expert aesthetic team will create a plan that is proactive and personalized to help you achieve your skincare goals.
