Different Wrinkles, Different Treatments: Customizing Your Anti-Aging Program

No two wrinkles are the same, which means there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment to get rid of all of them. Fortunately, you don’t have to settle for a one-size-fits-all procedure to say goodbye to your facial creases and achieve a more youthful appearance. At New Visage, we offer a wide variety of wrinkle treatments that allow us to customize your anti-aging program. Here is a list of some of the wrinkles that you might encounter and the best treatments to get rid of them.

Forehead Wrinkles
Horizontal lines across the forehead are typically the result of facial expressions. Over time, the lines become etched into the face permanently. These types of wrinkles are most effectively treated with Botox injections, which work by relaxing muscles that lead to the formation of these lines.

Crow’s Feet
Fine lines around the eyes usually develop after repeated squinting or smiling. Finer crow’s feet often diminish through skin rejuvenation treatments like laser resurfacing, chemical peels or microneedling. Deeper creases typically respond best to Botox injections.

Frown Lines
Vertical lines between the eyebrows also develop as a result of repeated facial expressions like frowning or squinting. Botox injections are the best option for these creases since it relaxes the muscles in the face that cause them to appear.

Nasolabial Folds
These deep creases extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth. They are usually due to loss of collagen, an important substance that supports the underlying skin structure and keeps skin firm and smooth. To combat these lines, we usually recommend dermal fillers that smooth away the lines from the inside out.

Smile Lines
Small creases in the corners of the mouth may be called “smile lines,” but they are not usually anything to smile about. Like nasolabial folds, these lines are usually best addressed with a dermal filler like Juvederm or Restylane.

Smoker’s Lines
You don’t have to be a smoker to develop fine, vertical lines above the upper lip. In addition to making you look older, they can detract from the fullness and definition of your mouth. These lines can be treated with a number of options, including dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels.

Marionette Lines
Lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the jawline are dubbed “marionette lines,” because they create a puppet-like appearance. These lines are also due to collagen loss, which leads to loose skin and facial creases. Marionette lines are best treated with dermal fillers, although skin tightening may also be recommended to firm up the skin and create better definition along the jawline.
