Erase the Lines
Wrinkles and fine lines can form anywhere on the face, but when they are surrounding the mouth area, it can be a very unpleasant look. Peri-oral wrinkles are more prominent in former and current smokers. Yet another reason to kick the habit and quit…yuck! Lucky for all, there are treatments that can help erase and smooth out those lines, around the mouth and other areas of the face.
Wrinkles and fine lines appear due to a number of reasons: the natural aging process and your genetics, sun exposure, environmental pollutants, and internal health habits. They also become more pronounced from making repeated expressions. That is why “smile lines” appear; because you have spent many years smiling! Not a bad thing, but you can still keep your smile, minus the lines.
The key is to treat the skin and regenerate new cell growth, with something like a laser resurfacing treatment. Dr. Pearlman recommends the Deka DOT laser treatment to smooth your skin. Next, you’ll want to treat and relax the muscle that is moving that creates the expression lines on the face with a neuromodulator like Botox or Dysport. Combine that with an at-home medical grade skin care regimen from Dr. Pearlman’s MD Face line and you are on your way to smooth, wrinkle-free, healthy new skin.
