Relax Those Wrinkles And Lines!

With A Botox or Dysport Injectable Treatment From SkinMD, You Can Reduce The Visible Signs of Aging

In the moment it happened, it didn’t really bother you that much… Your five-year-old asked very loudly in a public place, “Mom, what are those creases in your forehead?” At first, it was actually kind of cute and got a chuckle out of everyone in line with you.

But, now, days later, his words are still nagging at you and you can’t help but keep checking your face in the rearview mirror wondering, “Are my wrinkles really that noticeable?”

Under the bright lights in the bathroom, you can see that the situation is worse than you originally thought. You clearly have crow’s feet around your eyes, frown lines around your mouth, and, yes, your child was definitely right, fine lines across your forehead!

Yikes, when did this all happen?

Where Do Those Distasteful Lines and Wrinkles Come From?

Unbeknownst to most people, the signs of aging have actually been accumulating on your face since you were just a baby. From the time you started making facial expressions, such as smiling, frowning and squinting, grooves have been forming under the surface of the skin which, inevitably, lead to fine lines, creases, and wrinkles.

But why are they just showing up now and why are they so annoyingly difficult to get rid of? When you’re young, your skin is abundant in collagen and elastin fibers, which provide the tissue with strength and flexibility. In addition, in your younger years, new skin cells develop rapidly and dead cells are shed regularly. However, as you age, collagen and elastin become disconnected, causing the skin to become thinner and drier, and to develop sags and wrinkles. Plus, the growth of new skin cells slows down dramatically and the dead cells stick around longer, making your once healthy and youthful looking skin look dull and damaged.

This natural aging process is frustrating and, when combined with several other factors, can really take a toll on how you look and feel. Other elements that may have exacerbated the deterioration of your skin include:

  • Sun damage
  • Dehydration
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Some medications
  • Genetic factors
This is good information to know, but, unfortunately, it’s not very helpful. It’s impossible to go back in time and tell your sun worshipping teen self to put a hat and long sleeves on at the beach or to apply a 30 SPF sunscreen before hitting the soccer field. It’s also unrealistic to commit to never laughing, smiling, or frowning ever again just to ward off any further creases.

For women and men, the aging of the skin and deterioration of collagen is a natural, normal process that we cannot avoid. However, that doesn’t mean you have to be okay with it!

What You Can Do To Get Rid Of Wrinkles And Fine Lines

Now that you are aware of your facial lines and wrinkles, you are probably having a hard time seeing anything else when you look in the mirror or at a picture. So, are you ready to investigate ways to get rid of these tell-tale signs of aging?

At SkinMD, we understand if you want to try a few over-the-counter ideas first. Un-wrinkle peel pads, liquid silicon skin supplements, aloe vera gel eye creams, brightening fluids, exfoliants, there really is no end to the products you can test on yourself. However, most, if not all, of these options are going to require your dedication to daily application and none of them are long term solutions for the issues you are experiencing.

While there is no forever solution for lines and wrinkles, there are, however, some excellent facial rejuvenation treatments that can take years off your aging face. At SkinMD, we offer patients just like you two of the most effective preventative measures you can take for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on your face – the injectables Botox and Dysport.

What Are Botox and Dysport And How Do They Work?

Overall, Botox and Dysport are very similar. Both are FDA-approved injectable neurotoxins that are used to relax the muscles in the areas surrounding your eyes, forehead and mouth in order to smooth frown, smile and worry lines, crow’s feet and, of course, wrinkles.

While both have been in use for years, have high efficacy and safety levels, and can be used on various parts of the face and body, there are some differences that may make one injectable more appropriate for you:

Dysport Botox
May be slightly less expensive May be slightly more expensive
Results may not last as long Results may last longer
Approximately 2-5 days until final result Approximately 4-7 days until final result
Need a larger quantity to get results Need a smaller quantity to get results
More diffuse (spreads to a wider area) Less diffuse
younger skinRegardless of which SkinMD injectable solution you choose, for most patients, the results will be equally quick and remarkable. Within several days of your treatment, your facial skin will appear smoother, with either eliminated or softened wrinkles. Both injectable treatments can be completed in less than 30 minutes, are minimally invasive, and require no downtime. Best of all, your results will typically last up to three to six months.

One additional thing to know about injectables like Botox and Dysport is that the earlier you start your treatment plan, the less of it you are going to need as time goes by. In fact, if you’re in your 20s or 30s and just starting to see the very first signs of visible wrinkles and lines when your face is at rest, then there is actually no better time to begin your age-prevention program with SkinMD.

Our Medical Staff Is Here To Help You Make An Informed Decision About Injectables

More important than selecting which of these two products will achieve your desired results, is choosing the right professional to administer your Botox or Dysport treatment. Mistakes and bad results are almost always made by inexperienced people who are providing the treatment, not the product itself. At SkinMD, you will work with a team of highly experienced Registered Nurses and Aestheticians who are all under the supervision of our owner, Dr. Paul Flashner, a practicing physician since 1982 and a leader in the field of non-invasive facial and body aesthetics.

The mission of our Medical Group is to help you look, feel and be your best by creating a highly customized aesthetic care plan that blends non-invasive technologies, injectable and laser therapies. Dr. Flashner and the SkinMD team will do everything in our power to help you achieve your optimal results. This includes offering our patients a choice of Botox or Dysport, which are the most effective FDA-approved injectable treatments specifically designed for the reduction of facial lines and wrinkles.

To determine the best treatment protocol for you, our SkinMD process begins with a one-on-one consultation with a member of our medical staff. In this meeting, we will:

  • Address your overall health and concerns
  • Review treatments you’ve had in the past
  • Assess your skin from head to toe
  • Recommend specific solutions that could be right for you

If it is determined that Botox or Dysport is the optimal skin care solution for you, then all we will need to do is book your procedure; no special preparations or skincare regimens are required in advance of your treatment.

We’d also like you to know that our commitment to your satisfaction means that we provide patients like you with affordable payment options and interest-free financing through CareCredit for those eligible.

At SkinMD, we will always set realistic goals so that you get what you expect from your services. We take your happiness very seriously and we hope to become your aesthetic and skin care partner on this lifelong journey to looking, feeling, and being your best.
