Louisville, KY residents deserve the very best when it comes to the care of their skin. If you are getting older, you have no doubt noticed the encroachment of lines and wrinkles on your face. While getting wrinkles is an inevitable part of the aging process, getting them too soon or too prominently can leave you feeling dissatisfied with the appearance of your face. If you find yourself unhappy because you look older than your actual age, you may be looking for anti-aging treatments that are simple and effective for the minimization of lines and wrinkles.
- Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a great non-surgical technique for the minimization of lines and wrinkles. They involve the injection of certain substances to lift up the skin and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
Some of the most common types of dermal fillers contain collagen and hyaluronic acid. At some point, depending on the product, the injected materials will be absorbed by your body and require replacement. At this point, we can again inject your face with the product to replenish the substances that keep wrinkles at bay.
- Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are another anti-aging treatment that offer real results for the minimization of lines and wrinkles and other issues. They come in varying strengths based on the degree to which your face is affected by wrinkles and work through the application of a special solution to gently remove the outer skin layers. This old skin is replaced by new skin underneath that displays fewer signs of aging.
- Laser Treatments
A typical laser treatment in Louisville, KY works through the targeted direction of thermal energy underneath the surface of your skin. This mildly “damages” it, which prompts your body into removing it and replacing it with more youthful skin that displays fewer wrinkles.
Sculptra® is a special type of injection containing synthetic polylactic acid. After we inject it into your skin, it is gradually replaced by your body with collagen. This tends to thicken your skin and lift it to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
- Medical-Grade Products
A growing number of patients with aging skin are turning to medical-grade skin care products, and for good reason. To put it simply, these products are far more effective than OTC products.
