After the harsh winter months, you may be feeling that your face looks suddenly and surprisingly old. Your skin may be dry, damaged, blemished. Wrinkles may have appeared, whether from squinting and scowling into the wind or partly due to the damage your skin has suffered from the dry and punishing winter air.
If your skin is blemished, dry, or damaged with numerous fine wrinkles, we have a couple options that can help. We offer glycolic acid peels that use a gentle fruit acid to remove the damaged outer layers of your skin and open up your pores to release their natural oils that nourish and protect the skin. We also offer fractional laser skin resurfacing that creates wells into the deeper, healthy layers of your skin to tap into the natural healing response that rejuvenates and firms the skin. We also treat sun and age spots with intense pulsed light. These treatments require several sessions to get optimum results, so if you want to look fresh as the spring when it arrives, now’s the time to start.
For targeted treatment of wrinkles, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and facial filler injections. BOTOX® Cosmetic targets crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and “lipstick lines.” Facial fillers like Juvéderm address folds, wrinkles, and hollows due to lost volume, such as under-eye hollows or nasolabial folds (sometimes called parenthesis lines). Radiesse can also be used to add volume.
Whether winter or just age is to blame for concerns you have about your facial appearance, we have nonsurgical options to help you look your best again. To learn more, please schedule a consultation with New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits today or call us at 212-750-9494.
