Wrinkles and lines are common cosmetic concerns for both men and women. If you don’t see smooth and vibrant skin when you look in the mirror, it may be time to explore your wrinkle correction options. Today, there are more treatments to improve your complexion than ever before.

Joan Hardt, M.D. will help you navigate your skin treatment and injectable options to determine which ones are best for your unique situation. Dr. Hardt is a leader in multiple fields of cosmetic medicine and has curated an array of highly-effective services. Keep reading to learn about a few of the ways to improve wrinkles at Rejuvena Cosmetic Medical Center.

BOTOX® and Fillers

Woman after wrinkle correction in OKCInjectable treatments are arguably the most well-known way to correct lines and wrinkles. Amidst a growing sea of minimally-invasive cosmetic options that allow you to look your best, cosmetic injectables are the most frequently performed. And for good a reason, because they are a safe and effective way to reverse visible signs of aging.

Wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin are two different brands of neuromodulators that act on a fraction of the muscle fibers in the injected area. This relaxes the wrinkles in that area, such as the glabella (commonly called 'the elevens'), and the smile lines around the eyes ('crow's feet').

Fillers are another type of injectable, used to fill lines and restore volume in a given area. Fillers such as Juvederm®, Radiesse and Bellafill can make your skin more smooth and youthful looking, as well as restoring youthful contours.  

When it comes to treating wrinkles, injectables typically work either by relaxing targeted facial muscles or by plumping the skin. Dr. Hardt will explain your options and match you with the appropriate choice for your specific concerns. Injectables provide an amazing cosmetic benefit and are often used to perform a “liquid facelift.” A liquid facelift is a nonsurgical method of lifting and contouring the face through strategically placed fillers and wrinkle relaxers. This service can make you look younger without the downtime and cost associated with plastic surgery. 

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing can dramatically improve the texture and appearance of your skin. The advanced skin lasers at Dr. Hardt’s practice are the best on the market, and state-of-the-art, offering sessions that are incredibly safe, predictable, and precise.

These lasers work by stimulating the production of collagen and fresh skin cells. A significant benefit of this technology is that it can treat a broad spectrum of age-related concerns, including fine lines, scars, discoloration, and even mild skin laxity. Laser skin resurfacing treatments can often achieve an impressive and long-lasting cosmetic outcome.

Radio Frequency Treatments

Radio frequency (RF) treatments shine when it comes to skin tightening. Numerous devices utilize this gentle energy – alone or with other effective modalities – to heat the skin, encouraging collagen and elastin production while boosting cell turnover. 

RF technology can improve the tone and structure of your skin. It is the most effective modality for skin tightening. It is safe to use on many different skin tones and types. When applied to wrinkles, RF can help smooth them away.

Thread Lift Procedures

A thread lift may be ideal if you are dealing with lines, wrinkles, and facial skin laxity that you want to correct. During this procedure, Dr. Hardt will lift and tighten the skin on your face using absorbable threads. These temporary threads aren’t visible once placed, and most patients can’t feel them.

Absorbable threads offer two main cosmetic benefits when strategically placed beneath the surface of your skin. The first is that they lift and reposition aging tissue to create a more youthful appearance. The second is that they trigger the body’s healing response, creating a scaffolding of new collagen that continuously supports your lifted results long after your body has absorbed them.
