When patients contact Advanced ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery, they often ask us what are the best treatments for deep lines and wrinkles of the face. There are a few surgeries and some non-surgical treatments that are ideal for those unwanted lines and creases. Let’s list these effective wrinkle-reduction procedures.
For deep lines, wrinkles, and sagging around the middle portion of the face, the traditional facelift is one of the best options out there. The procedure involves incisions made around the ear area, allowing surgeons to adjust the underlying tissue of the middle portion of the face and pull the facial skin tighter to smooth away lines.
There is also a lower face lift option that can be helpful for people who suffer from jowls and heavy nasolabial folds. This surgery can help you look so much younger.
Deep creases along the forehead may still be visible even when your brow is at rest. In these cases, your best option for treatment may be a forehead lift. Using incisions hidden along the hairline, a plastic surgeon can adjust the underlying structures of the forehead and pull the skin tighter to make the deep creases far less visible.
BOTOX injections can help provide temporary relief from unwanted lines and wrinkles of the face. These injections prevent muscle contractions in the treatment areas, making BOTOX ideal for treating dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles visible when you make certain facial expressions.
The most popular anti-aging cosmetic procedure in America today, countless patients return to our Orange practice for repeat BOTOX injection sessions.
Dermal Filler Injections
Dermal fillers are another kind of cosmetic injectable. While BOTOX injections halt muscle contractions, dermal fillers add volume to the injection sites. This helps conceal certain creases, lines, and hollows that could be an issue otherwise. There are many different kinds of dermal fillers out there, which means we can find one that’s best suited to your needs.
The Rise of BOTOX Injections and Tissue Fillers
We’ve noticed a nationwide trend when it comes to cosmetic injectables. Far more people are turning to cosmetic injections than traditional facial plastic surgery, which may speak to the popularity of these procedures and the desire for patients to achieve great cosmetic results without major side effects.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there were 7.43 million BOTOX injections and 2.67 million dermal filler injections performed last year. For perspective, there were 121,531 facelift performed in 2018. The facelift is not ineffective by any means, but it cannot compete with the popularity of cosmetic injections.
