Are you bothered by the wrinkles that surround your lips and chin? If so, know that there are a number of solutions that can reduce their appearance and restore your confidence. Here at Krauss Dermatology, we create a personalized plan for you which may include Juvederm fillers, Botox, the Fraxel Dual laser, and specific medical-grade skincare products for your skin type.
The Juvederm collection of fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body. Juvederm Volbella is a part of the Juvederm collection and can help you improve vertical lines around your upper and lower lip without looking puffy or unnatural.
Juvederm Ultra and Vollure, which are also part of the Juvederm collection, can smooth marionette lines — the creases that run vertically from the corners of your mouth down to your chin. They can also improve the appearance of nasolabial folds or the two skin folds that run from each side of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
Since these fillers may cause bruising, you can expect us to use the cutting-edge V-Beam laser to quickly fade bruises and minimize inconvenience.
Juvederm & Botox Consultations Available
Botox is an injectable that can stop your facial muscles from moving by temporarily blocking the nerves that tell them to contract. Following a Botox treatment, your muscles and skin will be relaxed, leaving you with a smooth, more rested appearance. Small doses of Botox can be used to soften the lines around your mouth that are caused by movement such as pursing and pebbling of the chin.
Fraxel Dual Laser
If you have fine wrinkles around your mouth, the Fraxel Dual laser may be the way to go. It uses two wavelengths to treat the skin superficially and at its deepest layer. Since it replaces old and damaged cells, it can improve the look of your fine wrinkles and leave you with fresh, glowing skin.
Medical-grade Skincare Products
The Skinmedica TNS Essential Serum is one of our favorite products because it contains growth factors and antioxidants that can maintain your skin’s collagen production and minimize the appearance of wrinkles around the lips and chin.
We also love the Sente BioComplete Serum as it combines the proven anti-aging power of retinol with hyaluronic acid boosting compounds and can significantly improve the look and feel of your skin.
In addition, we are huge fans of Skinceuticals CE Ferulic as you can wear it under sunscreen and reduce the UV damage that outsmarts your sunblock and may cause wrinkles around your mouth. Revision Intellishade TruPhysical is a sunscreen that combines moisture, tint, and sun protection and is another one of our favorite products.
Dr. Krauss has been my dermatologist for nearly two decades. Her level of knowledge in the most up to date cosmetic procedures is unsurpassed. I would not trust my skin care in the hands of another professional. My three young adults are patients of Dr. Wise and are just as satisfied.
Highly recommend Krauss Dermatology.
