Wrinkle correction used to mean either small improvements with creams or major improvements with surgery. The ground betwen is now covered with the introduction of wrinkle fillers, like Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Radiesse, and wrinkle relaxers, like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin.
San Francisco Bay Area – Leaders in Wrinkle Reduction
San Francisco Bay Area Plastic Surgery patients have always been at the forefront of facial wrinkle correction with fillers. It began in the 70’s with the local development of Collagen, and carries on today with its replacement, hyaluronic acid or HA.
Wrinkle Fillers – Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane & Radiesse
Like collagen, HA is a normal component of the skin, and is also found in our joints. HA dermal fillers are sold under many brands names, with the most popular being Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane. These clear gels allow for the correction of moderate to deep facial rhytids (lines) with minimal down time and quick improvement.
Wrinkle Relaxers – Botox, Dysport & Xeomin
Botulinum toxins have been used for years for the treatment of blepharospasm, a disabling chronic spasm of the muscles around the eyes causing functional blindness. For many years it was the plastic surgeons “secret” weapon, and used off-label, but a few years ago Allergan received approval for a new indication – the cosmetic treatment of frown lines. BOTOX Cosmetic was born. Others have followed with similar approval and results including Dysport and Xeomin.
