Aging is a part of life and can be seen in sagging, wrinkles, discoloration, and loss of firmness and texture in the skin. The signs of aging are effected by:
- Sleep habits
- Nutrition habits
- Sun protection habits
Wrinkles are creases, folds, and ridges in the skin. The first wrinkles on the face are often the result of facial expressions like squinting or smiling. Other factors that can cause wrinkling are sun damage, smoking, dehydration, and some medications. Wrinkles are often more prominent on skin that has been exposed to the sun, like the face, neck, hands, and forearms.
BOTOX® is the number one treatment for treating wrinkles in the United States. BOTOX and other dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM®, can reduce wrinkles and restore lost volume by “filling” the skin. When you visit Simmons Plastic Surgery, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons will determine which type of dermal filler is best for you. Dermal fillers can last from six to eighteen months, depending on the patient. Dermal fillers are commonly used to treat the:
- Nasal labial folds
- Marionette lines
- Facial wrinkles
- Vertical lip lines
- Corners of the mouth
