Facial Rejuvenation Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is the first FDA-approved treatment for creating a temporary reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and those pesky vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows. The therapy relies on the injection of a carefully controlled formulation of Clostridium Botulinum extract, a substance naturally present in the soil, forests, and lakes.
When introduced into facial muscles, Botox works by impeding those muscles from moving through their full range of motion. That means they can no longer pull or tug your skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Botox treatments last for four months and have a track record for being safe. The procedure isn't painful and takes just 10-15 minutes.
What can dermal fillers do for my appearance?
Many of the visible signs of aging are because of collagen loss. During your youth, higher collagen production works to add padding and softness to your facial contours. As you age, collagen gradually declines.
Dermal fillers work to replace lost facial volume. Most fillers are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin. Fillers soften your facial contouring and add fullness where needed, and can last six months to a year or longer.
Dr. Bateman offers Restylane® and other popular dermal fillers. He uses these products to soften nasolabial folds and to smooth out marionette lines and other lines around the mouth. He can restore volume to your cheeks or provide youthful fullness and definition to your lips.
What can I do to improve the look and feel of my skin?
Chemical peels are a great way to refresh and renew your skin. These treatments use a chemical solution to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin cells, revealing a fresh layer of cells. The treatments stimulate collagen growth, tightening the skin and erasing fine wrinkles.
Chemical peels can improve the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Irregularities in texture and tone
You’ll notice some mild peeling and flaking in the days following your peel, but this simply means the treatment is working as intended. There are different formulations and strengths of chemical peels to address a wide range of needs.
How can laser treatment improve the look of my skin?
Laser treatments create impressive results without the need for anesthesia or lengthy recovery. Treatments use controlled beams of light to warm the deeper layers of facial tissue. Your body responds by creating new collagen and tightening the skin.
Increased collagen production smooths your skin, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser treatments can also reduce irregular pigmentation concentrations and improve the appearance of scarring.
