Antiaging Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. Botox, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are all neuromodulators that work in the same way, by relaxing the muscles responsible for wrinkles. The most popular areas for Botox are crow's feet, forehead lines, and the vertical between-brow lines. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin last for about 3-4 months.  

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Belotero®, Sculptra®, and Radiesse®  restore volume loss due to aging. Fillers add artificial volume deep below your skin’s surface, in the same area where you’ve lost natural collagen. It’s the volume you need, precisely where you need it.

Fillers are an ideal way to address wrinkles that occur due to natural collagen breakdown over time. The most popular areas for dermal filler injections include the nasolabial folds, the lips, and the cheeks.

Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, and Belotero can last up to a year. Radiesse, a calcium-based filler, can last 12-18 months, and Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid filler, can last as long as two years.

What are intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser treatments?

IPL treatments are similar to laser light skin treatments, but they use a broad spectrum of pulsed light. Both IPL and laser treatments can help with wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, and other skin concerns. However, laser treatments are usually better suited for major problems that require skin resurfacing, while the gentler IPL treatment may be ideal for pigmentation issues.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation solution in which your doctor uses a specialized handheld tool to create tiny controlled wounds in your skin. This triggers your body to create more collagen and elastin, proteins that provide structure and volume to your skin, which in turn creates a more youthful look.

At Z-ROC Dermatology, microneedling often includes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment. PRP is created from your own blood and contains a high concentration of growth factor proteins that help your body and skin heal naturally.

What is hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?

HRT supplements hormones that your body is missing due to illness or the results of aging. There are several HRT options, including biocompatible hormone injections, oral hormones, and topical hormones. HRT can be an integral part of your anti-aging treatment plan.
