If you’re looking for an effective anti wrinkle treatment, you know just how hard it can be to find a product that can help you quickly reach your goals. We offer several treatment options for fine lines, wrinkles, and other common signs of aging at Knox Wellness Experience in Knoxville, TN, and our team of experts can help you select the treatment that’s a perfect fit for your unique concerns.
What’s the Most Effective Anti Wrinkle Treatment?
When it comes to caring for your skin, it’s important to understand the various treatments and products available. Aging is the number one concern for many of our patients, but not every treatment option is right for you. A good anti wrinkle treatment addresses the specific type of wrinkles you experience and takes into account the progression of your aging concerns, your skin’s sensitivity, and your ultimate goals for your anti-aging treatment.
What Are the Benefits of an Anti-Aging Cream?
We offer Epionce anti-aging creams for patients who wish to address their aging concerns with a preventative treatment that is completely non-invasive. These creams nourish and moisturize the skin while also stimulating collagen production to tighten the skin and treat mild fine lines and wrinkles. When used over time, this product can help keep your skin healthy and smooth for years to come.
An anti-aging cream should be combined with a gentle daily skincare regimen to promote overall skin health. It can be used by patients of all ages, but it is best to start this treatment as early as possible to stop new signs of aging from developing. The benefits of this treatment include a natural, skin-friendly formula and a treatment that can be completed at home, with no office visits or downtime required after your initial consultation.
What Are the Benefits of Neurotoxin Injections?
If you notice wrinkles that grow deeper when you smile, frown, or laugh, it’s likely that you’re experiencing dynamic wrinkles. These signs of aging are directly tied to facial muscle movement. A neurotoxin injectable like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin can temporarily freeze muscle movement to erase dynamic wrinkles and keep lines from becoming more noticeable as time progresses.
Treatment is accomplished by injecting a small dose of your chosen product into the target muscles. After 2-7 days, you will see the treated muscles slowly stop moving, and your dynamic wrinkles should be far less visible or even completely eliminated. Depending on the product recommended for you by our doctor, you could enjoy results lasting 3-6 months. Male patients can also experience successful treatments and skin rejuvenation with “Bro-tox.”
Will My Results Look Natural?
If you’re considering neurotoxin injectables, you may be wondering whether your final results will look natural. Some neurotoxin treatments have been over-administered by unskilled or untrained providers, resulting in a “frozen” expression in some patients. This unfortunate result is completely avoidable by entrusting one of our experienced staff members with your treatment. We use small doses and strategic injections to create your results.
Once the neurotoxin takes effect, your muscles will lose their normal range of movement for a short time. While you’ll notice that these muscles do not move when you make your normal expressions, your appearance will be largely unchanged except for the absence of dynamic wrinkles. When your final results become visible, no one will know that you received this treatment unless you choose to tell them.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane treat static wrinkles, which are caused by a lack of collagen framework in the skin. These wrinkles can be used anywhere on the face or jawline and improve the appearance of fine lines, folds, wrinkles, and skin laxity. Both filler formulas contain hyaluronic acid, a body-friendly volumizing substance that will lift and fill the skin before safely dissolving over time.
In general, results from this treatment can last between 6-18 months. Most patients choose to continue treatments indefinitely to maintain their ideal image and prevent new signs of aging from developing in the skin. While these products are similar, each offers slightly different benefits. Our doctor can examine your skin and recommend the dermal filler that’s right for you during an initial consultation.
How Do I Know Which Treatment Is Best for Me?
With so many treatments available, you may be wondering how to choose the most effective anti wrinkle treatment for your skin. First, it’s a good idea to examine your skin and determine the areas you wish to treat. If you notice frown lines, crow’s feet, or smile lines, dynamic wrinkles, a neurotoxin injectable could be the best treatment option for you.
If you are concerned by the appearance of nasolabial folds, fine lines, lipstick lines, or skin laxity, a dermal filler would likely be the most effective treatment option. Just a few simple injections can help volumize the skin and deliver long-lasting results. Finally, if you want to keep your skin glowing and wrinkle-free with an easy at-home treatment, an Epionce cream can provide long-term rejuvenation for patients of every age.
In some cases, anti wrinkle treatments can be combined to treat several different concerns at once. The best way to choose a treatment that will effectively address your specific signs of aging is to meet with our skilled doctor, who can evaluate your skin and give you a professional recommendation for the treatment that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
Any man or woman who wants to pursue a non-invasive anti wrinkle treatment could be an ideal candidate for one of our rejuvenating options. A good candidate is generally healthy and free from any medical or skin conditions that may interact negatively with the products used during treatment or the injection process. In addition, you should have educated expectations about the results each treatment could achieve.
While anti-aging creams can be used by most patients, it is important to be consistent with application in order to see ideal results. Neurotoxin injectables are not ideal for patients who wish to treat static wrinkles, and they are not recommended for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding at the time of treatment. Additionally, dermal fillers are not able to treat dynamic wrinkles and may not be ideal for patients with severe skin laxity.
We provide a number of skin-refreshing treatments in addition to our anti-aging options. Many patients benefit from a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan, which can be created during your initial consultation with our doctor. Over time, we can adjust this plan to meet your ongoing needs and skincare goals.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
Here is a general overview of what you can expect from one of our anti wrinkle treatments.
During your initial consultation, you will have the chance to sit down with our doctor and learn more about the treatments available to you. We will examine your areas of concern, review your medical and treatment history, and ask you questions about your desired goals for treatment. This process will help us recommend the most effective treatment or combination of treatments to deliver your ideal results.
Once we recommend a treatment option, we will provide you with a basic treatment plan and instructions for preparing for your first in-office appointment. Patients who choose to use a cream may take this product home and begin using it immediately after their consultation.
In order to prepare for your first treatment, you should eliminate any harsh exfoliants or resurfacing products from your normal skincare routine for at least 2 weeks before and after treatment. This will help you avoid irritation in the target area and helps set your skin up for easy, successful treatment. 1-2 weeks before your appointment, we recommend that you stop taking blood-thinning medications to reduce your risk of excess bleeding and bruising after injections.
You should also use sunscreen regularly to protect your skin from sunburn and other consequences from harmful sun exposure. We ask patients to stop tanning, either outdoors or in a tanning bed, at least 1 week before treatment to reduce possible irritation in the skin.
Before your in-office treatment, you should wash your skin and remove any makeup products. One of our staff members will explain the treatment process to you before beginning injections. If needed, we can also apply a topical numbing cream to the target area before treatment to keep you comfortable.
If you choose to pursue a neurotoxin treatment, we will inject the product into the target muscles under the skin. This process is virtually painless and takes between 10-30 minutes. Once the product is injected, we will gently massage your skin to distribute the neurotoxin. If you’re having a dermal filler treatment, we will inject the filler under the skin and build even, visible volume to reach your desired image. This appointment may take between 20-45 minutes.
Once your injections are complete, you can see your dermal filler results immediately, while neurotoxin results will take between 2-7 days to appear. We will give you helpful instructions for your recovery and you can return to your normal daily activities with zero downtime required.
The recovery process for these treatments is relatively easy for most of our patients. As your neurotoxin treatment takes effect, you will notice that the treated muscles stop moving over several days. You can check the progress of your treatment by making some of your normal expressions in a mirror. By the time your final results develop, your dynamic wrinkles should be diminished or erased completely.
Dermal filler injections deliver instant results, but it may take up to 2 weeks for the product to settle fully into your skin. During this time, you should avoid touching the target area to avoid disturbing the filler. If needed, you can schedule a quick touch-up treatment to add extra volume and enhance your final results.
An anti-aging cream can help improve the appearance of your skin over time, delivering results that may include brighter skin, increased collagen growth, and noticeably diminished lines and wrinkles. Injectable treatments like neurotoxins and dermal fillers offer long-lasting results that can be consistently maintained over time with regular appointments.
If needed, our staff can recommend treatments to enhance or prolong your results. We can also adjust your personalized treatment plan as needed to ensure that you see your ideal image become a reality.
