When a person wants to get rid of wrinkles but does not want to go under the knife, there are a few non-surgical solutions to consider. Many lines and wrinkles on the facial area occur as muscles contract. Over time, this leads to permanent creases in the skin. There are many ways to regain a youthful appearance.

Botox: A common non-surgical wrinkle treatment

The painless procedure relaxes facial muscles and takes minutes to perform. Botox is commonly injected into the forehead and temples. It is extremely effective and eliminates crow’s feet near the eyes as well. A patient will receive benefits that last three to six months.

Besides Botox, Dr. Lent offers other non-surgical procedures to get rid of wrinkles. For instance, Juvéderm and Restylane are two popular wrinkle fillers that are injected and leave behind a plump and volumized look. Along with erasing facial lines, wrinkle fillers work well to lift cheeks as well. Results typically last for several months.

Another great way to smooth facial wrinkles is with fat injections. Fat cells are transferred to the face from a different area of the body. This makes a permanent and natural way to eliminate lines or plump thin lips. A fat injection works effectively to eliminate wrinkles around the folds of the mouth, between the eyebrows, or cheeks. Since this is a natural substance in the body, no allergic reactions will occur. These injections are a wonderful complement to other procedures performed to treat facial aging. The biggest advance is that the results are permanent.

Lip augmentation is another procedure provided to enhance an important part of the face. Sensuous lips are the envy of most women. Lip augmentation rebuilds volume of the lips with safe and long lasting results. Numerous injectables may be used, but Hyaluronidase fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm are the most common. New treatments also include fat injections. These are totally natural and may bring permanent results.

Dr. Lent has performed thousands of non-surgical procedures to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of facial aging. The ultimate goal is to improve the self-image and self-esteem of each patient. It is possible to perform multiple procedures in order to receive the best results possible.
