When fine lines begin appearing, it’s a sign that deeper wrinkles are on the horizon. Lines will eventually turn into creases, which are harder to fill or tighten. This is why you’ll need to be proactive about your anti-aging routine, starting now. With the help of a specialist, you can discuss nonsurgical treatments for wrinkles and determine which is best for you.
At New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, Dr. Surinder Sandhu offers a variety of treatments to help address various skin conditions, including fine lines caused by aging and sun damage.
Nonsurgical skin treatments
As your skin begins losing volume and elasticity, fine lines are often the first signs of aging. While wearing sunscreen and applying moisturizer can protect your skin and slow how fast you age, you’re going to end up with fine lines and wrinkles at some point. Nonsurgical skin treatments, rather than invasive surgeries, can help you tackle fine lines early.
1. Chemical peels
You’d be surprised by how many fine lines are caused by old skin wrinkling on top of new skin. Using a special chemical peel solution, Dr. Sandhu can carefully remove the top layers, revealing fresher, more unblemished skin below.
Chemical peels vary in intensity, and can treat a wide range of skin conditions, including dryness and acne, in addition to fine lines and wrinkles. We’ll customize your peel for best results based on your skin type and condition.
2. Botox® and fillers
Popular among people of all ages, Botox and dermal fillers like Juvéderm® can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and stop your skin from creasing further. The purified neurotoxin in Botox prevents dynamic wrinkles from distorting your skin, while dermal fillers replace lost volume and fill in fine lines.
In addition to Botox and fillers, Dr. Sandhu also offers the nonsurgical NovaThread lift, which uses tiny, tightenable threads inserted just under the skin to mimic the results of a facelift.
3. Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling has been steadily growing in popularity, likely due to its versatility. By creating micro injuries on the skin’s surface with a needle roller, it encourages your skin to heal the area by boosting production of collagen and elastin.
Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) takes this process a step further. We take a blood sample and spin it in a centrifuge until the platelets and plasma are isolated. We spread the resulting serum over your face, where it seeps into the microscopic punctures made by the needles. Since this serum is made using your own blood, your body accepts it right away and begins using the growth factors it attracts to repair damage.
