Fine Lines / Wrinkles

Wrinkles and fine lines form as the result of many different factors, such as genetics, hormonal changes, stress and environmental exposure. After years of frequent contraction, both ‘dynamic’ and ‘static’ wrinkles can linger on your face creating unwanted expressions, such as appearing angry or tired, even when your facial muscles are at rest. At View Laser, we can help your outer appearance match what you wish to express from within. Dr. Ray’s years of experience in medicine give him a unique outlook on addressing aging concerns. Dr. Ray examines patients with a global perspective to determine what treatments will achieve the most optimal outcome, while highly respecting facial proportions to maintain a natural appearance. View Laser offers patients a number of non-surgical cosmetic treatments for fine lines and wrinkles. Determining which solution is the right one for you will depend on the type of line or wrinkle, location and what you wish to achieve.

Botox Cosmetic®

Botulinum toxin in its cosmetic form has revolutionized the way physicians are able to improve the look of facial wrinkles, creating a more relaxed and youthful appearance. Its effectiveness and excellent safety track record has made injections of botulinum toxin one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in the world.

What is it?

Botox Cosmetic® is a naturally-occurring purified protein that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The substance is injected with a very fine needle into select muscles, blocking the nerve signals and resulting in their temporary relaxation.

What can it do?

Botox Cosmetic® is primarily used to reduce and smooth dynamic wrinkles:

  • Frown lines – vertical glabellar lines between brows (“angry 11’s)
  • Crow’s feet – lines around the eye area
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Neck creases or bands
  • Help lift the brow and open the eye
  • Lessen gummy smiles
  • Minimize lip puckering
  • Reduce the width of the lower face

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are often used in conjunction with Botox Cosmetic® as an advanced rejuvenation technique that focuses on restoring volume and facial definition. The two complementary treatments produce an amplified anti-aging effect together.

What is it?

Dermal filler is a gel-like substance that is injected into the skin to fill deep wrinkles and restore volume. The fillers Dr. Ray has chosen consist of only the highest quality hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in your body.

What can it do?

Dermal fillers can smooth the lines and folds of ‘static’ wrinkles:

Dr. Ray’s approach with Dermal Fillers is primarily to focus on restoring volume, reduce sagging or deflated skin and to enhance the natural beauty of one’s overall facial shape. Areas that may be treated are:

  • Cheek enhancement
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lips
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Marionette’ lines (sides of the chin)
  • Jaw/chin enhancement
  • Temple and forehead smoothing
