Treatments for Wrinkles in the Los Angeles Area
Dr. Rivkin has several non-invasive techniques for treating wrinkles. Traditionally, painful surgical methods have been the only option for getting rid of wrinkles. These surgical methods are costly and carry many risks. Dr. Rivkin’s techniques eliminate the basic risks of surgery, long recovery time, and the chance of displeasing, irreversible cosmetic outcomes.
Dr. Rivkin offers several options for eliminating wrinkles, depending on your individual needs and preferences.
Frown and worry lines of the brow, between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet 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 an eyelift look with no surgery involved.
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 and Radiesse are all safe and effective injectable fillers, which Dr. Rivkin uses to fill in wrinkles. Restylane lasts about 6 months, Juvederm about 9 and results from Radiesse last one to one and a half years.
The Thermage procedure is a safe, effective way to tighten loose skin all over the body without the risk, downtime or expense of surgery.
Fraxel, or fractional laser skin resurfacing, is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional laser resurfacing.
