Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

When we age, short collagen fibers restrict the extension of longer ones creating a permanent fold commonly known as a wrinkle.

BOTOX®, fillers and PRP can be used to lift and plump the wrinkle to compensate for the fat and collagen loss that comes with aging. Chemical peels and microneedling can be used to smooth and soften the skin.
