Wrinkles and fine lines may appear as we age, particularly on our faces and necks. These signs of a life well-lived, while natural, can sometimes affect our self-esteem. If you want to embrace a more youthful and confident version of yourself, explore the most effective skin rejuvenation treatments from Dr. George Sanders, allowing you to make an informed choice for a rejuvenated you.
Wrinkles and skin imperfections are nothing to fret about; they are simply opportunities for revitalization and rejuvenation. With a variety of skin rejuvenation procedures at your disposal, your individuality and specific needs are always taken into account. According to the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, there are three types of wrinkles:
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by facial muscle contractions, generally resulting from emotional responses like laughter, frowning, and crying.
Static wrinkles are caused by damage to the skin from the sun, genetics, smoking, and/or poor nutrition. They can also result from prolonged dynamic wrinkles.
These types of wrinkles are caused by changes in your facial structure as you age, resulting in sagging skin. Wrinkle folds commonly appear around the nose and mouth, medically known asnasolabial folds.
Facial Injectables for Skin Rejuvenation
One popular category of skin rejuvenation treatments is facial injectables. These minimally invasive procedures involve using different types of injectable substances based on the skin conditions being treated, ranging from small lines to deep lines, wrinkles, and scars. Each facial injectable addresses different skin rejuvenation needs for the desired aesthetic outcome.
BOTOX®, or Botulinum Toxin Type A, is a widely recognized injectable treatment to relax wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. BOTOX is most effective for treating dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions, such as:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
JUVÉDERM® is a facial filler that adds volume to the face and smoothes moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It is frequently used to address various conditions, including:
- Enhancing the contours of the lips
- Restoring volume to the cheeks
- Correcting facial volume loss
JUVEDERM® VOLUMA® XC, is specifically designed to add volume to the cheeks and provide a subtle lift to the area. It is a preferred option if you desire volume restoration and more defined cheekbones. This injectable gel is also commonly used for age-related volume loss.
Restylane®, derived from a natural sugar compound, is a clear liquid gel that works similarly to JUVÉDERM. It is commonly used to address the following conditions:
- Nasolabial folds (wrinkle folds around the nose and mouth)
- Marionette lines
- Other facial wrinkles
- Lip enhancement
- Facial contour enhancement
Radiesse® is a biocompatible facial filler that provides immediate volume and stimulates natural collagen production. It is frequently used to address the following conditions:
- Wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose
- Scar correction
- Facial contour irregularities
- Hand rejuvenation (restoring volume to the back of hands)
These facial injectables target specific skin conditions and provide aesthetic enhancement to help you feel more confident. With all these available options, it’s important to consult with Dr. Sanders to determine the most suitable treatment based on your individual needs and goals.

These treatments minimize discomfort, redness, and downtime, making them a convenient choice for busy individuals. They are commonly used to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Skin tone and consistency
- Enlarged pores
- Sunspots and age spots

Chemical peels are another effective method of skin rejuvenation. This treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the outer layers, encourages cell turnover, and reveals smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Chemical peels offer benefits by addressing various concerns, including:
- Superficial to medium-depth lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne and acne scars
