Fine Line and Wrinkle Treatment

Before & After Dermal Fillers in Altamonte Springs, FL

Fine lines and wrinkles are an aesthetic concern for a lot of us as we get older. They may make us look older than we feel, and a lot of people agree: they’ve got to go. Dr. Brinson has helped many get rid of these troublesome cosmetic conditions by using appropriate injectable treatments. Dermal fillers and Botox Cosmetic injections are proven, effective methods in which many have found relief from fine lines and wrinkles. The specific injection used will depend on a few factors, notably whether the patient is dealing with dynamic or static wrinkles.

Dynamic wrinkles are those that form with facial expressions. A common example is crow’s feet around the eyes. Worry lines on the forehead are another example. These are the result of the contraction of an underlying muscle. Dr. Brinson uses Botox to help those with dynamic wrinkles find relief. The injection works by preventing the underlying muscle from receiving the instruction to contract. This paralyzes the muscle so that it can no longer contract; thus, the wrinkle no longer forms. Repeat sessions are required to maintain results, which typically last up to six months. Over time, the muscle will not be as responsive; this is known as chemical denervation.

Static wrinkles are apparent when the face is at rest, and do not require muscle contractions to form. These are often treated with dermal fillers, which come in a number of varieties from various manufacturers. Dermal fillers contain different ingredients depending on the specific filler, but all of them work to raise a depression such as a fine line or static wrinkle to reduce its appearance. Common ingredients include hyaluronic acid and various types of collagen (bovine, porcine, human, etc.). Results from one session of a dermal filler will last anywhere from two months to several years depending on the type of filler used.

Dr. Brinson will evaluate the wrinkles you’d like to reduce to help you determine which injectable is right for you. Some opt for multiple fillers and injectable treatments in what is known as a liquid facelift. As some dermal fillers are not as effective in treating wrinkles in some areas of the face or neck—the lips for instance—different products may be required to produce optimal results. It is important to speak with Dr. Brinson regarding the recovery instructions for each filler or injectable treatment, although most do not require any downtime and patients are allowed to return to normal activities right away.

In addition to its effectiveness in treating dynamic wrinkles, Botox may also be used as a treatment for underarm sweating and migraine headaches. Of course, this is an issue that deserves discussion with Dr. Brinson, as other treatment options may be preferred before utilizing Botox in this manner. Nevertheless, the injectable treatment has proven effective in this regard for many patients.
