Many of my patients are concerned about facial wrinkles they have developed over the years. A surgical procedure such as a facelift may not always be the best was to address this issue. Several non-surgical options are available to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Here are my top 3 non-surgical recommendations:
- BOTOX Cosmetic®: Some facial wrinkles are caused by the repeated contraction of certain facial muscles. BOTOX Cosmetic in Toronto reduces wrinkles by relaxing these muscles.
- Injectable Fillers: Dermal fillers are effective solutions for patients who wish to decrease smaller facial wrinkles without surgery. The fillers are injected into wrinkles and areas of lost volume in order to add smoothness and fullness to the face. Results are almost immediate and can last for several months.
- Lasers: For patients with sun-damaged skin, laser and light treatments can provide an effective solution. Treatments such as IPL Photofacial can reduce discoloration and create tighter, more toned skin with fewer lines and wrinkles.
Keep in mind that these can be combined with other treatments for more dramatic and long-lasting results. Your facial plastic surgeon can help determine which treatments will complement each other best to meet your particular skincare needs.
