Treating Wrinkles at Dermatology Consultants
Wrinkles and fine lines are the effects of aging and sun damage. While some wrinkles as we age are unavoidable, many wrinkles are the result of tanning or other sun exposure without sunscreen or protective clothing. Regardless of the cause of wrinkles, our dermatologists and estheticians are experts at treating them to reduce their appearance. When treating wrinkles it’s always advisable to ask about a plan for preventing more wrinkles from occurring, especially when your wrinkles are the result of exposure to the sun.
Our methods of treating wrinkles at Dermatology Consultants include:
Botox is a purified protein injection that relaxes muscles that cause wrinkles with movement. For example, Botox is commonly used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and lip lines. Botox is administered by our expert dermatologists. Treatment typically takes 10-15 minutes and there is no down time. Learn more about Botox.
Dysport is also a purified protein injection that works similarly to Botox. Dysport allows you to achieve the effect of a browlift and reduce wrinkles around the eyebrows and eyes without surgery, and without affecting the movements or expressions of the face. The eye area opens up, which brightens and refreshes your expression. Learn more about Dysport.
Ulthera is an ultrasound heat-based therapeutic treatment for lifting and toning loose skin. It is able to target deep beneath the skin without cuts or injections. Because of its ultrasound imagining component, our skilled dermatologists are able to actually see the layers of skin they are targeting as they work, ensuring they are delivering Ultherapy to the areas that will provide maximum results.

Dermal fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, Belotero, Voluma XC and Sculptra provide fullness to the face and can even encourage the skin to produce more collagen. Filling out areas where wrinkles are present can reduce their appearance and dermal fillers give the face a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. In most cases results appear almost immediately.
