Reverse the signs of aging without surgery.

The fight against wrinkles is the most common reason individuals seek facial rejuvenation. Non-surgical, non-invasive skin treatments are particularly effective in treating the first signs of aging to reveal a smoother, younger-looking complexion. 

Treatment options are based on the two types of wrinkles. There are dynamic wrinkles that are produced by repetitive facial expressions, such as “crow’s feet” that form around the eyes from smiling. And there are resting wrinkles, that are due to lost elasticity from aging, sun exposure or other environmental factors. 

To treat dynamic wrinkles, including crow’s feet, Crystal Clinic uses BOTOX®. It’s an effective way to minimize horizontal creases on the forehead, vertical creases between the eyes, and wrinkles on the sides of the nose and around the upper lip. BOTOX® can also improve the appearance of deep vertical bands on the neck, one of the earliest signs of aging. Along with being very effective, treatment with BOTOX® is quick, convenient and affordable.

Resting wrinkles require a different treatment approach and benefit from the use of injectable fillers. Fillers are injected directly under wrinkles or deep facial lines to push the wrinkles outward, making skin appear fuller and wrinkles less noticeable. Collagen fillers and fat that has been removed from an individual’s abdomen, thigh or buttocks, have been successfully used for years. While collagen and fat continue to be excellent options, other FDA-approved filler materials been developed, each with their own unique characteristics and advantages.

Products such as Juvederm®, Restylane® and Perlane® replenish areas in the face where fullness has been lost. These products use hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally-occurring substance in the body. Radiesse® is made from calcium hydroxyapatite, an element found in the bones and teeth, which stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production. Scupltra® contains poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic material that also stimulates the body’s own collagen production to restore facial fat loss, especially around the cheeks and eyes. Although filler results vary based upon the filler type and severity of the wrinkles, the results are often long-lasting and may even be permanent. 

Deeper wrinkles and sagging skin may require a more involved lift procedure or a combination of surgical and non-surgical treatments to deliver the desired results.

The best way to know if BOTOX® or fillers are right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, the details of the procedure and post-procedure expectations, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have.
