Wrinkles, worry lines, laugh lines can viewed as having years of wisdom, happiness or living a full life. However; most people don’t welcome wrinkles because they are recognizable signs of the aging process and not reflecting “how young” a person feels. That being said, wrinkles are an unavoidable stage of the natural aging process.
Ordinarily, wrinkles appear naturally as we age. The first wrinkles tend to show on our face as a result of facial expressions, such as laughing, worrying, frowning, etc. Wrinkles don’t only come from our facial expression, but also from environmental factors such as; prolonged exposure to UV rays, smoking cigarettes, lifestyle, and other factors. As we become older, our skin gets drier and has less elasticity.
How can you take something that is unavoidable and make it “avoidable? Botox! Botox Injections for wrinkles will give your worn face a flawless and natural look. A qualified surgeon, such as Dr. Magassy of Plastic Surgery Associates, can adjust your dosage accordingly to ensure that you can achieve that gorgeous expression you so deserve. Just in case you don’t know how Botox works- Botox injections for Wrinkles are made with a purified version of the toxin, called “botulinum”. In miniscule doses, this “botulinum” relaxes the strained muscles in the face that cause “crow’s feet”, and other facial worries.
Not only is Botox an option in ridding your face of lines, Plastic Surgery Associates also offers:
JUVÉDERM™ is semi-permanent injectable filler for treating facial wrinkles and plumping up lips.

The gel is injected under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel with long lasting results.
Radiesse™ Welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. It is a natural choice used to maintain a more youthful appearance. The key element of Radiesse™ is identical to the chemical structure of calcium naturally present in the human body.

It is gradually replaced by the body’s own tissue, and slowly dissolves away, in cases up to seven years later.
Restylane® is very effective for diminishing wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, the lips, the nasolabial folds (commonly referred to as “parentheses”), and the frown lines (between the eyebrows). results will last from 6 to 12 months.
