Fine Lines & Wrinkles
As we age, fine lines and wrinkles can develop due to a loss of volume and elasticity in the skin. When we are young, the face has a layer of fat under the skin that starts to disappear as we age. This may cause the face to look drawn and/or older than its years. Injectables and fillers are used to correct these lines and wrinkles, and add volume to areas of the face that have become drawn or hollow over time. These treatments can also be used to contour and sculpt the face to enhance certain features.
Depending on how defined and deep facial lines and wrinkles are, different combinations of injectables and fillers are used to achieve smoother, more youthful looking skin. There are several products used for volume filling, depending on the area(s) to be treated and the nature and condition of the skin. Dr. Victor also uses other medically advanced treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, such as injectable RF procedures and the liquid facelift. To determine the course of treatment, Dr. Victor evaluates the patient and makes a recommendation based on these factors. The treatments and procedures Dr. Victor uses to address fine lines and wrinkles are:
- Voluma XC
- Silicone – Micro Droplet
- ThermiRF (ThermiTight)
- Liquid Facelift
- Dr. Victor consults with the patient to determine the best course of treatment.
- For injectable and filler treatments, a topical numbing cream is applied to the injection site–this is not mandatory, but many patients prefer it.
- Dr. Victor then proceeds with the treatment. For injections, Dr. Victor uses a unique technique and an expert eye for details and aesthetics to achieve excellent results.
- For most treatments and procedures, little to no downtime is necessary. Our staff will discuss specific results with the patient, and answer any questions they may have.
