Wrinkles are a fact of life as we age – noticeable on many parts of our body, but most obviously on our face. Fortunately, medical science has provided us with multiple options to slow or even prevent formation of facial wrinkles as well as treat existing wrinkles to rejuvenate our skin’s tone, texture, volume, and firmness. It’s amazing what we can now accomplish, and all without facelift surgery.
It is wonderful to have an ever-increasing number of alternatives available. But that can make it all the more difficult to know which procedures to choose. What’s best for one person won’t be best for someone else. And not all wrinkles are the same, so they must be treated differently. Your age, gender, skin type, facial structure, your specific concerns and skin improvement goals all come into play.
So what do we recommend here at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery?
Best Overall Treatments for Wrinkles
There are certain non-surgical procedures that Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez recommends as “best” overall when it comes to addressing multiple wrinkle issues:
- Botox treatment is great for wrinkles in the upper face such as frown lines, forehead lines and lateral canthal lines (known to most of us as crow’s feet). Regular Botox injections reduce visible appearance of existing wrinkles and help prevent new ones from forming, by gently relaxing the underlying muscle movements that cause dynamic wrinkling over time.
- Dermal fillers add volume to minimize the appearance wrinkles, especially in the mid and lower face, by re-plumping contours from below the surface. Bellafill, for example, is very versatile because it can be injected in various tissue layers depending on how Dr. Hernandez is using it – to treat fine lines, deep wrinkles, to add volume to the face, or to treat multiple wrinkle types. And Radiesse is a great treatment option for deep wrinkles such as nasolabial folds.
- Morpheus8 treatments firm the skin, help fine lines disappear, and minimize deeper wrinkles. More comprehensive than injections, this innovative procedure combines gentle radiofrequency-based heat and microneedling to not only produce immediate results but stimulate the body’s own natural production of elastin and collagen for ongoing skin renewal. Many patients also choose to add Plasma treatment to further enhance results.
These are Dr. Hernandez’s top picks because just about everyone can benefit from them. Botox treatments, because they smooth out wrinkles and also have a preventative effect. Dermal filler treatments, because we all lose collagen and volume in our faces over time. And Morpheus8 treatments, because this procedure helps firm the skin, stimulate collagen production, clear up sun damage spots, minimize acne scars, etc. – all issues which affect most people.
Tailored Just for You
Of course, the “best” treatment for you is the one that addresses your specific concerns. A personal consultation with Dr. Hernandez is always the first step toward facial rejuvenation here at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery. “I ask what bothers them or what they want to improve,” she explains. “I then evaluate a patient’s face and make my recommendations for their particular concern.”
She also points out other issues that age their appearance and makes recommendations to minimize those issues. Armed with all the pertinent information, each patient can then decide what they want to start with first.
