Treatment Options for Different Types of Wrinkles

When you visit a dermatologist to discuss treatment options for your aging skin, one of the things you may be surprised to learn is that all of your wrinkles are not the same. There are actually several different kinds of wrinkles, and to get results from cosmetic treatments, you have to use the right kind of care for the wrinkles you have. Your cosmetic dermatologist will examine your skin to determine the kinds of wrinkles you have before recommending the appropriate treatment. Here is a look at the different types of wrinkles and the treatments that can be used to address them.

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles occur as a result of muscle movement under the skin. They develop in areas where the skin folds when you move your face—the creases that appear around your eyes when you squint are one example of dynamic wrinkles. Without treatment, these wrinkles will eventually appear even when you're not making the expression that causes them, as the skin will become permanently creased. These wrinkles can be treated with Botox, which works by reducing the movement made by the facial muscles, preventing the skin from folding.

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles are wrinkles that do not appear because of muscle movement, but rather because of age-related changes in the skin as well as sun exposure. There are a few different ways to treat these wrinkles, depending on their severity. For some people, dermal fillers, which plump the sunken area of skin in the crease of the wrinkle to make it look smooth, are the best solution. Other people may benefit from laser skin resurfacing and other skin rejuvenation treatments. Most dermal filler treatments need to be repeated every 12 to 18 months for lasting effects, while laser therapy may require multiple treatments over a short period of time to achieve the desired results.

Do I Need to See a Doctor if I Develop Hives?

Hives occur as a response to exposure to an irritant, such as a food or medication that triggers an allergic reaction. They usually look like welts and can vary in size. Typically, they are also very itchy. If you experience hives for the first time, consult with a dermatologist to identify the cause.

If you have experienced hives in the past and have a minor outbreak, then you may be able to treat them at home. Most cases clear up within 24 hours. Using cool compresses and over-the-counter anti-itch medications can help. A cool bath with baking soda or uncooked oatmeal added to the water can also be soothing. However, if your hives are severe or don't clear up on their own, see your dermatologist as soon as possible.

From hives treatment to scar management and psoriasis care, the dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery are ready to help with comprehensive clinical, medical, and cosmetic dermatology care. To make an appointment, call (866) 400-3376.

Are Warts Cancerous?

The virus is extremely contagious, and you are even more likely to develop warts of you have a cut on your skin when you are exposed to the virus. In most cases, your dermatologist can diagnose warts simply by looking at them. Many different treatments are available, including cryotherapy, excision, and chemical peels.
