I Want to Get Rid of My Wrinkles. What Are My Options?- Charleston, SC 

 Wrinkles are probably the most common sign of aging. They appear as you grow older and can have a severe impact on your self-esteem and day-to-day life. Here at O’Neill Plastic Surgery, we offer many options to get rid of your problem-causing wrinkles. Here are a few you might want to look into: 

PicoSure Laser

The PicoSure is a high tech laser from the industry-leading Cynosure medical laser treatments manufacturer. PicoSure uses tried and tested laser technology to reduce wrinkles while also removing tattoos, revitalizing your skin, clearing acne scars, and reducing age spots. PicoSure delivers small bursts of photomechanical light energy to problem areas without harming other skin cells. Photomechanical light causes less cellular damage than traditional skin revitalization laser techniques. These treatments are about 10 minutes each and are scheduled six to eight weeks apart.

Dermal Fillers

RADIESSE® is a manufactured dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth wrinkles and folds on the face. Common folds and wrinkles that RADIESSE targets are the creases that around the nose and corners of your mouth. Another type of dermal filler we offer is Restylane®. Restylane® is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, adding fullness to skin that has lost its natural volume. It is effective in filling facial wrinkles and folds without the need for surgery. Results typically last about six months and can be repeated as necessary.

ThermiTight® Products

ThermiRase® focuses primarily on smoothing out your frown lines. It is a longer-lasting alternative to Botox that targets and disables the facial nerves that cause glabellar frowning (the wrinkles in between your eyes). This treatment leaves you with long-lasting to permanent relaxation of the nerves that cause frown lines. Another option is ThermiSmooth Face®, which targets and smooths out features on your face including the skin around your eyes, eyelids, forehead, neck, and the area around your mouth. ThermiSmooth Face® works to combine tightened skin with new collagen to help lift sagging skin and reduce wrinkles. This procedure, like all of the other ThermiTight® treatments, is painless.
