Wrinkles are the most common sign of aging. We all get them…and we all want to get rid of them. The gradual development of facial wrinkles, whether fine surface lines or deeper creases and folds, is a classic sign of accumulated skin damage and inevitable aging. Premature aging and wrinkling of the skin may be accelerated by various causes including excessive exposure to the sun and other elements, overactive facial expression muscles, the frequent use of tobacco products and poor nutrition. Dr. Holy in Phoenix offers multiple wrinkle treatments for the face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport/Xeomin: BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport and XEOMIN are different products that rely on the same active ingredient — botulinum toxin type A — to relax the facial muscles that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles. They work by selectively weakening these facial muscles, relaxing wrinkles and smoothing the overlying skin. The result is a youthful-looking, refreshed appearance that respects your own unique features.
Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. Dermal fillers are injectable gels composed from either natural or synthetically derived materials like hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers gently lift and pump up the skin to restore the collagen that has been lost due to the natural aging process. Dermal fillers also enable the body to generate its own collagen which can help in giving a natural and youthful facial appearance.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) liquid facelift: The PRP Facelift is a procedure that uses your own blood to help boost the youthful appearance of your face. This procedure helps grow new tissue which smooths skin texture and encourages the growth of new blood vessels to provide a beautiful healthy glow! By activating and harnessing natural growth factors within your own blood, the Platelet Rich Plasma liquid facelift safely, comfortably and effectively restores the balance your skin needs to maintain a fresh, youthful look.
