Facial Flaws Have You Feeling Old?
You might appear frustrated, tired, or angry when you have forehead wrinkles and furrows on your brow. As we express so many emotions through our brows, forehead lines are common. Eventually, we can no longer ignore the telltale signs of aging that we see in the mirror—fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes, age spots, perhaps some sagging skin. With the help of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, you can minimize the effects of time on your face. If you are interested in topical treatments or cosmetic injectables, our facial aesthetics doctor in Chicago can find a solution that works for you at our facial cosmetic office.
Using chemical peels.
Peeling away dead skin layers to reveal a smoother, younger complexion is one of our office’s services. A chemical peel is a technique used to make the skin on the face, neck, or hands appear younger and more radiant. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it exfoliate and eventually peel off. New, regenerated skin usually appears smoother and less wrinkled than old skin. Chemical peels work best on fine lines; deeper expression lines may require other treatments.
Botox Cosmetic is a well-known treatment for brow wrinkles and frown lines. Doctors have used it for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botulinum toxin type A, specifically OnabotulinumtoxinA, is used to temporarily paralyze muscles. As a result, you will lose the ability to frown or furrow your brow; as a result, the wrinkles will not appear. Though Botox is not permanent, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles for three to four months.
Exfoliation and skin rejuvenation techniques such as microdermabrasion are used to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This is a resurfacing procedure that involves removing dead, surface skin layers in order to reveal younger, fresher skin beneath. This is a common procedure performed in our facial cosmetics office daily.
Consider laser resurfacing.
In addition to removing wrinkles, scars, and blemishes, laser resurfacing reduces the appearance of blemishes as well. By using a concentrated beam of light, laser treatments remove one layer of damaged skin at a time.
Laser resurfacing can also stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers. The new skin that forms as the treated area heals appears smoother and firmer.
