The best anti-wrinkle treatment is prevention: stay out of the sun, don’t smoke, and live as healthy a lifestyle as possible in order to keep skin elastic and healthy. However, living a wrinkle-free lifestyle is easier said than done, and all men and women will eventually end up with wrinkles no matter how diligent their skin care. When you start to get wrinkles, though, don’t despair – there are many ways to reduce the appearance of wrinkles that are safe and effective! The expert, board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego have years of experience treating all kinds of wrinkles, and they will be able to help you achieve the look you want.
The best type of treatment for your wrinkles depends on the specific wrinkles you want to get rid of. Many people don’t realize that there are many different types of wrinkles! Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles caused by muscle movement, while static wrinkles are not. These two types of wrinkles require different treatments to be efficiently treated: dynamic wrinkles are best treated with a neuromodulator, such as Botox, while static wrinkles require a dermal filler, such as Restylane. Don’t worry, your dermatologist will know the difference and will be able to create a custom treatment plan that will work best to get you the results you want.
It is highly important to only have wrinkles treated by a dermatologist with experience who knows exactly what they are doing. A skilled dermatologist will be able to provide natural-looking results that will soften wrinkles and rejuvenate the face without looking frozen, unnatural, or overfilled. Be wary of med spas without a qualified, board-certified dermatologist on board, and it’s probably best not to have any cosmetic injections done by your dentist or family doctor, as they do not have the requisite experience and certification to perform these procedures.
