Facial wrinkles: Facial wrinkles form due to sun damage and volume loss in the soft tissues and bones of the face, so the skin is losing its support structure. Smoking and pollution can also increase wrinkling. Dermal fillers can help add volume and laser resurfacing can help tighten and smooth the skin. Sun protection is a must on a daily basis. Please consult a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Which offers a better treatment for facial wrinkles, a fat transfer or a face lift? I have deep wrinkles on my forehead and around my mouth. Will a face lift be effective to get rid of these facial wrinkles, or would injecting fat give me longer lasting r

Which offers a better treatment for facial wrinkles, a fat transfer or a face lift? I have deep wrinkles on my forehead and around my mouth. Will a face lift be effective to get rid of these facial wrinkles, or would injecting fat give me longer lasting r

For: For wrinkles on the forehead, consider botox. Wrinkles on the forehead are the result of contracting forehead muscles and Botox is the only treatment that truly addresses that by temporarily paralyzing the forehead muscles. A facelift is more for sagging skin and would only partially reduce the look of the forehead wrinkle. Filler substances won't address the underlying problem on the forehead. Fillers such as juvederm and Restylane (dermal fillers) work well around the mouth, though. ...Read more
