Many patients choose to manage wrinkles with skin resurfacing. This process is designed to remove the topmost layer of skin and is similar to facial peels and microdermabrasion. Calgary Vein & Laser offers the DiamondTome™ wand which exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells in one controlled process. A series of treatments may be recommended depending on your skin type and condition. Used to address minor to moderate fine lines, skin resurfacing is commonly used to treat sun damaged skin, age spots and scarring due to acne.
Over the past 20 years, Botox® has become a popular wrinkle management option. Calgary Vein & Laser, certified in Botox® Cosmetic since 1996, is pleased to provide the information and guidance you need. Botox® Cosmetic and injectables may help manage crow’s feet and frown lines by blocking chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. Treatment times – generally lasting 10 to 15 minutes – and individual results will vary. Botox® is an FDA-approved treatment.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Through the benefits of laser technology, there are even more ways to manage wrinkles. Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive procedure that may help in a variety of ways, including wrinkle reduction, tightening loose skin and removing uneven pigmentation. In this procedure, small areas of skin are treated with laser energy that is designed to remove aged skin and stimulate growth. The number of treatments needed – and your individual results – will vary.
Hyaluronic acid gel fillers such as Juvéderm® are commonly used to manage wrinkles. Fillers are often used to treat smile lines and specific areas of the face including the chin, jaw, cheeks and lip border. This procedure is usually done without downtime to the patient although some side effects can occur, such as skin redness, tenderness and bruising. In most cases, strenuous exercise, alcohol and exposure to extreme heat or cold should be avoided in the first 24 hours.
This is a surgical procedure that is designed to tighten wrinkles and sagging skin in the face and neck. There are many different types of face-lifts available.
Many wrinkles are seen through muscle contractions (crow’s feet and frown lines) while others are visible when the muscles are at rest. Calgary Vein & Laser can suggest treatments based on the areas you would like to address. Botox® Cosmetic and injectables may help prevent wrinkles from forming by blocking the signals that cause your muscles to contract. Fillers like Juvéderm® may be used to fill in wrinkles through the use of a hyaluronic acid gel.
PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has often been used in orthopedic medicine and reconstructive surgery, and is now being used in other fields of medicine such as dermatology. When PRP is injected into specific areas of your skin, it promotes collagen growth and regenerates tissue. By doing so, it acts to naturally smooth and tighten your skin. The overall goal of the procedure is to improve your skin tone and texture while softening lines and tightening skin. PRP can be administered with micro needling and sub-dermal injections and is often combined with other treatment methods.
