Do your fine lines and wrinkles make you look tired, angry, or older than you feel? Wrinkle treatments, offered by your Baton Rouge and Prairieville, LA, dermatologist, Dr. Ann Zedlitz of Z Aesthetic Dermatology, can help improve your appearance.
Prescription-strength retinoids are gels or creams that are applied to your skin. Retinoids improve wrinkles and fine line by increasing collagen production. Collagen is the protein that helps keep your skin toned and supple. Retinoids also speed skin cell turnover, improve texture and reduce ages spots and pigmentation.
Injectable Botox treatment prevents facial muscles from contracting. As a result, the skin over the muscles becomes smoother and less wrinkled. Botox is a good option if you have forehead furrows, vertical lines between your eyes, crow's feet and lines around your mouth.
As you age, your face loses volume. The changes are most obvious in your cheeks and lips and under your eyes. Unfortunately, loss of volume can lead to sagging and wrinkles. Injecting fillers under the skin restores lost volume and reduces sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers are often used to improve the appearance of nasolabial fold lines, undereye areas, cheeks, lips, chin creases, lip lines and crow's feet.
Chemical peels slough off wrinkles and fine lines in the outer layers of your skin. They're available in several strengths and can help you refresh your appearance. Results aren't immediate but can be seen when peeling begins a few days after you visit our Baton Rouge or Prairieville dermatologist.
Microdermabrasion also removes lines and wrinkles in the outer layer of the skin. During this procedure, your dermatologist uses a handheld device that removes the top layer of the skin. In addition to minimizing wrinkles, microdermabrasion also brightens skin and improves tone, texture and age spots.
