Botulinum Toxin Therapy
Botulinum toxin therapy is a dermatology treatment for achieving smoother skin that appears more youthful. Botulinum toxin therapy involves injecting the botulinum toxin directly into muscle tissue in areas where unwanted wrinkles are located. The botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles, thus causing the skin to smooth out and soften its appearance.
Botulinum toxin therapy is commonly used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest. Results typically last for three-to-four months, but can sometimes last longer. The dermatologists at our office in Knoxville, TN, can help you decide if botulinum toxin therapy is the right option for you.
Fillers are injectable treatments for helping you regain a more youthful appearance by smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. The skin loses elasticity with aging as collagen levels decrease. The loss of collagen and elasticity can lead to the development of wrinkles. Fillers help restore the natural collagen levels in the skin, which improves elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Fillers are commonly applied to the temples and cheeks, as well as around the eyes, mouth, and nose.
Microdermabrasion is another option for achieving smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and lines. Microdermabrasion involves gently exfoliating the top layers of skin to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. In addition to smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, microdermabrasion also evens out skin tone and texture, helps with melasma, and can reduce the appearance of sunspots, age spots, and acne scars. Following a series of microdermabrasion treatments, your skin will appear younger and smoother with fewer wrinkles.
