Everyone wants to know how to get rid of or treat their wrinkles. Fortunately, for patients who live in the North County, San Diego area, Dr. Amanda Lloyd at the Skin & Vein Institute in Encinitas has the answers for you. There are several different treatment options for skin wrinkles and depending on your age and how much sun exposure your skin has had; the type of treatment will be different. A highly qualified doctor, specifically a board-certified dermatologist, can help you determine the best plan for your skin. Dr. Amanda Lloyd is a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in skin care for all ages. She will customize a treatment plan for you, no matter what stage of life you are in.

Types of treatments available

There are three main types of treatments that are used to help rejuvenate your skin and provide a more youthful appearance:

  1. Laser therapy: Wrinkles are improved at any age by introducing heat into the skin, which is achieved with a laser. Dr. Lloyd uses a precise amount of laser heat in the exact locations needed for your skin. The effect is that your skin naturally produces more collagen, which allows the wrinkles to be filled in so they are less visible or are no longer visible at all. The Clear + Brilliant, Laser Genesis, and Fraxel are three different lasers that achieve this task. Each of these three laser treatments are non-invasive and can restore your skin tone, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the size of pores and scars, and leave your skin feeling and looking younger, smoother, and more radiant.
  2. Botox: Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles in specific locations so that the skin has time to rebuild its collagen and remodel on its own. The building of collagen and remodeling is what reduces the wrinkle. No matter what age you are, the skin can remodel and recover itself if it is given enough time to do so. Botox gives the skin this time because the skin is no longer constantly being creased by your muscles when you make facial expressions. Dr. Lloyd has extensive experience in using just the right amount of Botox in the locations on your face where they will have the maximum impact for a natural, beautiful result.
  3. Dermal fillers: Fillers help combat those deeper wrinkles due to volume loss that we experience as we age. They help replace any volume that has been lost in your face, which can exaggerate your wrinkles and make your skin look saggy. Fillers help to maintain the youthful structure of your face. Fillers also help naturally stimulate your skin’s collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. There are several types of dermal fillers that can be used, either alone in combination with each other. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used all over the face for immediate results and long-term collagen production. Sculptra is another common filler that creates a framework of support within your skin to stimulate collagen production. For patients who want to rebuild their temples, cheeks, and jawline or bring youthfulness to the backs of their hands, Radiesse is a good option because it provides foundational support.

A combination plan of Botox, fillers, and lasers is the typically the best strategy for maintaining your youth and keeping your skin radiant so that you Look Stunning. Always.
