Wrinkle removal is a beauty enhancement procedure which is used to remove lines, creases or folds on the skin, especially on the face, neck, back of the hands and the arm. The process involves making the skin tighter through surgical or medical procedures. After the procedure, the new skin looks younger, healthier and more vibrant.
Understanding The Procedure
During your initial consultation session, your doctor will examine the lines on your skin to determine what kind of treatment is suitable for your skin. He or she will discuss the best possible procedure as well as the best realistic outcome of the procedure.
There are three broad ways to handle wrinkles; medication, cosmetic surgery, and aesthetic treatments. Usually, patients will opt for aesthetic treatments as they are effective while being largely non-invasive – there are a few techniques to ensure that wrinkles will be removed. They include: laser therapy, Botox, chemical peel, fillers, and dermabrasions.
The surgical option like the facelift involves removing facial fat and skin with or without tightening the underlying tissue. After five and half years, the facelift is still effective. Collagen or fat are soft tissue fillers that are injected into face wrinkles. This smoothens them out, giving the skin more volume. Botox, also known as Botulinum type A, blocks chemical signals that make muscles to contract. This chemical is injected in small doses into specifically targeted muscles.

Today is a week since my surgery and I just saw Dr. Newman for my second post-op visit. I am so thrilled. First of all his staff is wonderful. I am amazed at how I feel now only one week later. Dr. Newman told me that I'd be OK to return to work this past Monday only 3 days after surgery. Honestly, I didn't believe him but as it turned out he was correct. I returned on Tuesday after surgery last Friday. At this point I have almost no pain and I only have a small bruise on my left side. My result is amazing and exactly what I told him I wanted. I heard from other people how good he is and, to be honest, I'm amazed at how easy this was. Go Dr. N!!!JessieRK
Are You A Good Candidate For Wrinkle Removal?
Wrinkles are caused by old age, poor health habits and over exposure of skin to the sun. If your skin has developed wrinkles through poor lifestyle choices like smoking then you are an eligible candidate. Age catches up with all of us and with age come wrinkles. If you are older but still want to maintain that youthful glow and vibrant skin, then you are a candidate for wrinkle removal. If you want to maintain a smooth face without wrinkles, that too makes you a candidate for wrinkle removal.
Are Wrinkle Removals Painful?
Since most of the procedures are not surgical in nature, the closest you will feel to pain is a little discomfort on your face. Surgical procedures such as facelifts will be a little sore for a brief period of time. Procedures such as a Botox are barely painful because all you will feel is the brief pinch of the injection as it enters the targeted muscle.
How Long Will It Take To See Wrinkle Removal Results?
The results of wrinkle removal are immediate. Since most of the medical procedures are non-surgical, the effects can be noticed immediately. With surgical procedures such as the facelift, you would have to give a healing period of a few weeks to see the results. Procedures such as dermabrasion have their results fully seen after two weeks.
