Aging is natural and inevitable. While seeing your first wrinkle can be quite a shock, lines and wrinkles don’t have to stay. Here are some common signs of aging you will need to watch out for and how we can treat them at Knott Street Dermatology:
Crow’s feet are the wrinkles that appear at the corner of your eyes. Because the skin in the eye area is thinner than the rest of your body, wrinkles are more prone to show in the area around your eyes.
Collagen decreases as you age and as a result, your skin loses elasticity and forms lines and wrinkles. They typically occur in areas where movement is more present, such as your forehead or around your mouth area.
The solution to Crow’s Feet and Fine Lines? Botox.
Knott Street Dermatology offers Botox® injections to treat dynamic lines (those that move with facial expression) above and between the eyebrows, forehead, and crow’s feet. Botox is injected into selected muscle groups to minimize facial wrinkles and usually lasts about 3 to 4 months.
Botox is a quick and painless treatment that reduces wrinkles, with no downtime, so you can achieve a more youthful appearance! It not only treats crow’s feet and fine lines, but also gummy smile, brow lift, lip flip, square jaws or a “chin-ullite” bumpy chin.
Our team of experienced professionals is here to provide personalized treatment plans to provide you with the best solution to your problems.
Hyperpigmentation or dark spots may be the result of your skin reacting to being exposed to the sun or other environmental factors over a long period of time. But it could also be caused by genetics, natural pigmentation, or marks left from scars from acne. Luckily, you can bid farewell to dark spots with microneedling.
Knott Street Dermatology offers SkinPen microneedling treatments for treating a host of skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage, while improving your skin’s texture, tone, and pigmentation. It’s also been clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars.
During this treatment, tiny needles are utilized to create micro-injuries or channels in the skin to prompt the skin to produce new collagen and elastin.
Dull & Dry Skin
As we age, our metabolic processes start to slow, therefore our cells take a lot longer to renew. Dead skin cells accumulate at the top layer of the skin, clogging pores and preventing the skin from moisturizing naturally, leaving your skin looking dull and dry. Dullness and dry skin can also be caused by dehydration, stress, or lifestyle habits such as smoking.
Facials can greatly help with dull and dry skin.A facial can address a variety of skin concerns including dull,dehydrated, and acne-prone skin. Here at Knott Street Dermatology, we focus on skin health and facials are a great way to get started.
Facials consist of a deep cleaning, followed by pimple or blemish extraction, exfoliation, a mask or peel, a massage then finished with the application of moisturizer, eye cream, and SPF. Getting regular facials will leave you with smoother and hydrated skin, giving you a glowing look.
Additional treatments you can avail of to pair with your facials are:
- Dermaplaning to exfoliate the skin while removing the outer, dead layers of skin.
- Collagen Induction Therapy by stimulating your body’s organic ability to produce collagen.
- Broad Band Light (BBL) uses pulses of light to remove unwanted pigmentation.
Whether it’s Botox, microneedling, or facials that you need, Knott Street Dermatology has the right treatment for you.
