Perhaps the most common cause of cosmetic procedures, wrinkles are one of the most obvious signs of aging. By eliminating wrinkles, we can make you look and feel more youthful. It can be a rejuvenating and renewing process.
TREATMENTS FOR WRINKLES
Dr. Rivkin treats facial wrinkles in a variety of innovative and minimally invasive ways. Traditionally, surgery was the only way to treat wrinkles and even today some patients have the kind of aging changes that requires a surgical facelift procedure. Most people, however, see dramatic improvements from a combination of non-surgical treatments such as Botox, injectable fillers and lasers. The precision of these non-surgical treatments create results that are transformative but totally natural. Dr. Rivkin believes that the first rule of cosmetic procedures is that no one needs to know that you are having cosmetic procedures. Flawless and imperceptible is the only way to go!
These non-surgical techniques eliminate the risks of surgery, the long recovery time, and the chance of displeasing, irreversible cosmetic outcomes. The field of non-surgical cosmetic treatments for skin conditions has come a long way in fifteen years, and Dr. Rivkin has remained in the lead, developing, popularizing and refining techniques in use all over the world.
Forehead lines, the “11” lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet lines can all be smoothed out with BOTOX® injections. BOTOX® also smoothes out the dimpled “orange peel” skin of the aging chin, it arches and elevates the eyebrows, eliminates neck bands, smoothes out vertical “smoker’s” lip lines and elevates drooping corners of the mouth. Perfect for a whole face rejuvenation in 15 minutes of painless injections!
Sculptra is not filler. It actually causes your body to create its own collagen and fill in the area naturally. This creates a natural looking, long lasting solution, and works best for deep folds and depressed areas that have lost the fullness of youth.
Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma and Radiesse are all safe and effective injectable fillers, which Dr. Rivkin and our expert providers use to fill in wrinkles all over the face. Restylane lasts about 6 months, Juvederm about 8 months, Radiesse lasts about one year and Voluma lasts about one and a half years.
Fraxel, or fractional laser skin resurfacing, is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional laser resurfacing. A series of treatments dramatically improves fine lines and acne scars without the downtime of traditional full face resurfacing lasers.
Profound is another energy-based option for treating wrinkles. This minimally invasive procedure is designed to tighten, lift, and contour the skin by regenerating collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acids. Find out more today!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Hyaluronic acid fillers like Voluma or Restylane Lyft offer a non-surgical approach to address deep creases near the mouth corners. With strategic and precise placement, these fillers can effectively lift the corners of the mouth, resulting in a more youthful appearance. For further enhancement, a small amount of Botox can be administered into the depressor anguli oris muscles, which are responsible for pulling the corners of the mouth downward. The Botox relaxes the muscles and lifts the corners of the mouth. It is crucial to consult an experienced injector with expertise in facial aesthetics to achieve optimal outcomes.
In our early stages of life, forehead wrinkles have not yet deeply set in and only manifest themselves during facial expressions. Botox injections can diminish these dynamic lines. An additional advantage of Botox treatment is its ability to hinder the progression of these lines, preventing them from permanently etching into the skin and becoming static creases that persist even when our faces are at rest.
