The skin of the face is one of the first parts of the body to show the signs of aging. The face is nearly always exposed to the elements, and sustains more sun damage than other parts of the body that are typically covered with clothing. Loss of fat volume with aging also tends to occur more rapidly in the face than in other areas. This combination of factors can lead to wrinkles and an aged facial appearance.

We are recognized as leaders in skin care in Southern California. When you come to our office for a consultation, our skilled physician can custom-tailor a wrinkle correction treatment plan for you.
Facial wrinkles develop due to a combination of contributing factors:
At Advanced Skin Care in Fullerton, we utilize advances in skin care technology to treat wrinkles with a range of injectable products:
Injections of BOTOX®, Dysport® or Xeomen® (purified forms of botulinum toxin type A) are used to counter “dynamic wrinkles” that appear when you move your face. These products work by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles, which softens the appearance of wrinkles. BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomen® are particularly effective for treating frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Treatment with botulinum toxin type A products is the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure in the U.S. – but you want a highly-skilled professional to inject BOTOX for a smoother, natural look that doesn’t appear frozen.
This FDA-approved dermal filler is comprised of sterile polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres in purified bovine collagen. Bellafill® injections provide immediate volume to lift facial folds and pitted scars to the level of the surrounding skin with long-lasting results.
Belotero® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to minimize superficial lines and moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that attracts and holds moisture. Belotero® is different than other hyaluronic acid fillers. It is a soft cohesive gel that can be shaped and molded to create a smooth, even appearance, making it possible to treat vertical lip lines and superficial lines and wrinkles.
Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid injectable used to fill in lines and wrinkles of the face. It was developed using an advanced manufacturing process to create a gel that flows easily into the skin for a smooth, natural look and feel. It provides immediate results and long-lasting improvement of facial folds and wrinkles.
Radiesse® is versatile injectable filler that can be used to add fullness to the lips, restore cheek contours, reduce nasolabial folds (between the nose and the mouth corners), and fill in smile and frown lines. It is made of calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres, which provide immediate volume and correction, stimulate the body to produce natural collagen, and become absorbed by the body over time. Results of Radiesse® treatment have been clinically proven to last a year or more for many patients.
Restylane® hyaluronic acid dermal filler can add volume and correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines (from the mouth corners along the chin). Like Juvéderm®, Restylane® contains lidocaine (numbing medication) for more comfortable treatment. Restylane® Silk is the only product approved by the FDA specifically for smoothing lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane® Lyft is hyaluronic acid filler with larger particles for deeper injection into the dermis to combat folds and wrinkles.
Wrinkles may be ultimately unavoidable, but our skilled medical professionals at Advanced Skincare in Fullerton can help turn back the clock on the appearance of aging with minimally-invasive wrinkle correction treatments to add volume, fill in facial folds, and smooth lines and wrinkles. We are not simply a cosmetic practice, but rather a whole-patient practice. Our goal is for you to look and feel your best.
