Lines and Wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles become a reality for everyone at some point or another for several reasons.

One, gravity gradually pulls everything downward, and this inevitably leads to creases in the skin. Two, skin loses elasticity over time, and this (along with gravity) pulls the skin downward. This sagging skin creates lines, wrinkles, and folds in the face. Three, repeated facial expressions over time gradually etch lines into the skin. Four, sun damage, free radicals, and other environmental stressors create wrinkles over the years. Wrinkles first begin as fine lines that appear occasionally, then gradually take longer and longer to disappear until finally, they remain on the skin permanently. Common facial wrinkles and lines are crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.

Recommended Treatments:

Although wrinkles occur naturally as we age, youthful plumpness and smooth skin can be easily restored with a variety of non-invasive methods. Non-surgical treatments can soften and smooth out facial wrinkles and lines to reveal a smooth and youthful complexion. BOTOX® Cosmetic prevents subtle muscle contractions and eliminates upper face wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Injectable fillers correct nasolabial folds, marionette lines, frown lines, and other wrinkles by filling in depressions to create fuller skin and more defined contours. Dr. Bitter’s remarkable FotoFacial® procedure counters wrinkles and other signs of aging with intense pulsed light technology. The FotoFacial® can be used with fillers to address lines and wrinkles. Dr. Bitter can perform this procedure to improve skin quality and vitality and even reverse signs of aging. These treatments may also be used effectively to delay the formation of wrinkles.
