Get to know the many ways we treat fine lines and wrinkles.
We all want clear, smooth, and radiant skin. Of course, over the years, everything from the chemicals and toxins in our environment to severe sunburns can affect the appearance of our skin. Just the natural effects of aging can take quite a toll. That’s why our Glendora, CA, dermatologist Dr. Amarpaul Sidhu offers a wide range of customizable cosmetic dermatology options that could give you healthier and happier-looking skin.
The lines and wrinkles that appear whenever you smile or frown can easily be smoothed away with Botox treatment. This series of very thin needles are injected into certain muscles of the face to temporarily prevent them from contracting, which temporarily smooths away lines and wrinkles. Results will appear within one week of treatment and last up anywhere from 3-6 months. If you love how you look, you can come in every few months for repeat treatments to maintain your results.
Great for: smoothing away dynamic lines and wrinkles, including around the forehead, eyebrows, nose, and mouth.
If you are looking to fill out areas of the face like the cheeks that have lost their volume with age, then Juvederm may be the best option. This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is designed to plump up areas of the face for a younger-looking appearance. We offer Juvederm and Juvederm XC, which provides a deeper injection to augment volume loss in the cheek and chin region. The treatment process is similar to Botox, but results appear almost instantly and last up to one year.
Great for: restoring and contouring the cheeks, lips, around the mouth, and other areas of the face.
A small device is placed over the skin to gently remove the outer layer of skin to reveal healthier and more radiant skin underneath. Treatment takes about 30-45 minutes with no downtime. While many patients see results in just a single treatment, multiple sessions are often recommended to achieve transformative results.
Great for: sun damage, discolorations, uneven skin tone, superficial scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial
A photofacial is another non-invasive treatment that uses light therapy to improve the skin's overall tone, texture and appearance. It can also stimulate the production of elastin and collagen to promote skin firmness. This treatment takes about 30 minutes and targets deep within the tissue to treat a wide range of imperfections with minimal discomfort and no downtime.
For best results, and depending on the severity of the wrinkles you’re dealing with, our Glendora, CA, dermatologist may recommend two to six sessions.
Great for: Fine lines and wrinkles, sunspots, sun damage, freckles, broken blood vessels, uneven skin tone, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and enlarged pores.
