At SB Aesthetics, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert W. Sheffield discusses wrinkle treatment and the wide range of wrinkle solutions recommended by plastic surgeons.  The three types of wrinkles most often referred to by doctors are superficial wrinkles and fine lines, deep wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles.

Superficial Wrinkles

Superficial wrinkles are facial lines that are not prominent, so nonsurgical wrinkle treatment options are commonly used to treat this type of wrinkles. Botox is used as superficial wrinkle treatments because it can prevent the wrinkles from become deeper.

Injectable fillers are also used as a wrinkle treatment since they can make the fine lines and wrinkles disappear in a natural looking way. Chemical peels and dermabrasion can also be paired with injectable fillers to help the look and texture of the skin.

Lasers are the last common superficial wrinkle treatment. Laser treatments are used to resurface the top layers of the skin to help decrease the look of fine lines.

Deep Wrinkles

Most times, deep wrinkles are caused by facial folds. The wrinkle treatment options that will work for this type of wrinkles will depend on the area that they are located in. For deep wrinkles, one or more wrinkle treatment may be used to correct the skin.

Botox is a temporary wrinkle treatment, which works by the paralyzing the muscle for a short time. Botox can be used by people between the ages of 18 and 65 and is most times used for frown lines.

Facial Fillers like collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other fillers try to erase wrinkles and lines as they fill in the underlying skin structure. The effects of these wrinkle treatments are temporary, as they do not correct the cause of the wrinkles.

Ablative Lasers work on several levels because they promote collagen development and remove the outer layer of skin. This wrinkle treatment can help reduce the look of wrinkles, but there is intensive aftercare for this treatment.

Cosmetic surgery is the most invasive wrinkle treatment. A face and neck lift can be the best wrinkle treatment for deep wrinkles because the lift corrects the underlying structure of the skin.

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles are the hardest wrinkles to treat since they are caused by the movement of the facial muscles. Most people know dynamic wrinkles as smile lines, crow’s feet, and eye wrinkles. Most doctors agree that eliminating these wrinkles with today’s wrinkle treatment options is impossible, and there is no wrinkle treatment available to prevent them because the muscles are always being used. However, there are wrinkle treatment options that can be used to soften the look of the wrinkles.

Botox is the most common wrinkle treatment for dynamic wrinkles. However, Botox is not a good wrinkle treatment for everyone. Botox also needs to be touched up from time to time. The area where the wrinkles are located will also affect if Botox is a good option for you. Topical resurfacing can be used to help the look of dynamic wrinkles if you are not sure about Botox.
