Find out the many ways a dermatologist can help rejuvenate your appearance.

It’s important to feel confident in your appearance, but that may be difficult to do when you feel self-conscious about the lines and wrinkles Wrinklesin your face. Luckily, our Buffalo, NY, dermatologist, Dr. Anthony Dee, offers a variety of ways to reduce, and even get rid of, these annoying signs of aging. Here are some options to consider:

 

Retinoids

One way to reduce wrinkles and pigmentation is with retinoid containing skin care products. Retinoids are extremely effective, although they can possibly cause some side effects. Conversely, products containing alpha-hydroxy acids and antioxidants have also been known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and minor wrinkles.

 

Chemical Peel

There are a variety of different chemical peels on the market that can provide everything from superficial to deep cleanses depending on the issues you are looking to treat. While superficial or minor peels can make small changes in the appearance of your skin, if you are dealing with more serious pigmentation (i.e. wrinkles, lines, and scarring), then a deeper peel will be able to target these problems more effectively.

Chemical peels, particularly deeper peels, may require up to a week or more downtime. During that time, the outer layer of the skin will peel away, revealing healthier and smoother skin underneath.

 

Dermabrasion

Instead of applying a chemical solution to your skin, our Buffalo, NY, cosmetic dermatologist will guide a handheld device over the skin to buff away the outermost layer of skin. This skin resurfacing technique exfoliates the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, and pigmentation. It can take up to one week for the skin to fully peel and for your results to appear.

 

Laser Therapy

In some instances, a dermatologist may recommend laser treatment to produce similar effects as other skin resurfacing techniques. Laser treatment has the ability to stimulate the production of collagen, which helps keep skin elastic, firm and plump. Depending on the type of laser treatment you decide on, our dermatologists will discuss how much downtime you may require after your treatment.

 

Botox

If you are looking for a simple solution for those lines and wrinkles that appear whenever you laugh or smile, then Botox is right for you! With this treatment, you can temporarily smooth away those lines by preventing facial muscle contraction. Results last around 3-4 months and can target minor to more severe crow’s feet and laugh lines.

How your dermatologist in Buffalo can helpanti-aging

We all know that it’s important to wear sunscreen and use moisturizer to prevent wrinkles. Still, no matter what you do, as you age you will most likely see a few wrinkles in your face. You might be seeing them right now. Fortunately, there are many effective ways to get rid of wrinkles.

Dr. Anthony Dee at the Dermatologic Center for Excellence in Buffalo, NY wants to introduce you to the latest, state-of-the-art treatments to combat wrinkles. Consider these non-invasive skin care treatments:

  • Moisturizing and antioxidant creams to smooth out wrinkles
  • Vitamin A acid to decrease wrinkles
  • Alpha-hydroxy acids to decrease the appearance of wrinkles

For deeper, more stubborn wrinkles, a cosmetic procedure might be your best choice. Dr. Dee offers a full range of highly effective procedures for you to choose from, like these:

  • Chemical peels - peels are designed to rejuvenate skin by sloughing off the superficial dry, dead skin and revealing the younger, dewy skin underneath.
  • Dermal fillers, including Juvederm and Restylane - fillers work by filling in wrinkles and plumping up your skin. Skin appears smooth and wrinkle-free.
  • Wrinkle relaxers, including Botox - relaxers work by temporarily paralyzing the nerves and muscles around the injection site. Your skin appears smooth and relaxed.
  • Laser resurfacing - laser resurfacing treats the top layer of your skin using heat and light to promote production of collagen and help your skin heal itself. The result is newer, younger-looking skin.

These are just a few of the wrinkle-reducing procedures available from Dr. Dee. For a complete listing of services, please visit the wrinkles page on the website at http://www.rashdecision.com/library/3913/Wrinkles.html
