Wrinkles are a colloquial word. In dermatology we have:
1. Rhytids: lines
2. Folds: areas of volume loss
Rhytids or wrinkles are further separated into:
1. Dynamic Wrinkles: As a result of movement. They need a neuromodulator to relax the muscles
2. Static Wrinkles: The lines are there even at rest. They may require a dermal filler like Restylane®, Smooth PDO Threads or Morpheus8 RF Microneedling.
The best wrinkle treatments have to address both lines and folds!
While some chase fads of newest wrinkle treatments, the medical practitioners at Ithaca Medical Aesthetics follow science for truly the best wrinkle treatments.
Smooth out your lines with Botox® Dysport® or Xeomin®.
Years of science have shown the following facts:
1. The most natural wrinkle treatment is sun protection! Wear hats, protective clothes and SPF.
2. Other natural wrinkle treatments include good moisturizers (natural oils) as well as retinoids (Vitamin A derivatives).
What other treatments that may compliment Botox treatment?
Each patient’s unique anatomy will determine the specific treatment and skincare regimen we recommend to attain the best results:
Skin Care : C+ Correcting Complex 30%, Nightly Retinol, Neocutis BIO SERUM FIRM Rejuvenating Growth Factor and Peptide Treatment
Microneedling - Botox and Xeomin® can relax muscles, but it can’t correct pigmentation and similar issues. If you’re concerned about hyperpigmentation, dull skin, sun damage, or other irregularities, you can try skin-resurfacing techniques like microneedling with collagen induction therapy, designed to even out the tone and texture of your skin.
Chemical Peels - Softens the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Medical-grade chemical peels can eliminate the build-up of pigment that causes dark undereye circles. Removes the layer of dead skin & reveals a brighter, more hydrated layer.
Morpheus8 RF Microneedling - Non-surgical skin tightening treatment for the face and body. It combines microneedling and radiofrequency to achieve deep fractional remodeling and directs energy toward the adipose fat that is notorious for creating saggy skin. By targeting the deeper layers of the skin, tissues of the face and body can be remodeled to reveal a more radiant youthful appearance.
PDO Threads - FDA-approved anti-aging treatment that lifts and tightens your skin without the need for an invasive medical procedure. They help to produce the production of new collagen in the skin which enhances the skin's elasticity as well as improving the appearance of folds and wrinkles around the skin and neck.
