At our Mac Med Spa locations in Milford, Framingham, and Hopedale, MA, we know that waking up and noticing a new wrinkle on your face can make you feel discouraged about your appearance, but we want you to know that there are solutions that work. We offer several different wrinkle treatment options that can help restore a youthful glow to your skin, regardless of what has caused your wrinkles in the first place.
How Can You Get Rid of Unwanted Wrinkles?
Wrinkles form for many different reasons, and for that very reason, there are different ways to target different kinds of wrinkles. Wrinkles form as a result of the aging process, sun damage, volume loss, and a decrease in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production as you age. The good news is we offer several different treatments that target wrinkles, regardless of what has caused them.
PRP/PRF Facial Rejuvenation
If you’re not ready to begin treatment with cosmetic injectables like Botox or dermal fillers, there are other effective options that are completely natural and can help eliminate unwanted wrinkles. PRP/PRF Facial Rejuvenation is a natural wrinkle treatment that uses the powers in the human body and unlocks those powers to help smooth wrinkles from the inside out.
The key to this treatment lies in your blood, and it involves the isolation and use of PRP and PRF, the portion of the blood that contains growth factors and regenerative properties that can help transform the complexion to treat problematic skin conditions and smooth unwanted lines and wrinkles.
How Does It Work?
During the treatment process, your blood will be taken through a standard blood draw, and then it will be placed into a device called a centrifuge. The device will spin the blood sample to separate the PRP or PRF from the rest of the blood.
Then, we’ll put it into injectable form and administer it into your problem areas so that your body can use all of the growth factors and regenerative properties to increase cellular turnover, promote collagen production, and improve the appearance of the skin.
At our office, we offer the most popular neurotoxin, Botox. Botox is a cosmetic injectable that targets wrinkles that form due to repetitive expressions. As you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin, which leads to weaker skin.
Your skin can’t bounce back as it used to after making expressions all day, and as a result, lines and wrinkles form. Botox targets wrinkles that form from repetitive muscular movements on the upper half of the face by relaxing those muscles to soften the expressions.
What Can I Expect From Wrinkle Treatment?
Botox can target wrinkles in three different areas of the face. It can smooth crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. We can treat one or multiple areas during your appointment based on your needs and preferences. One of our injectors will administer Botox into your target treatment area during the treatment process, which is quick and only takes a few minutes to complete.
When Will I See an Improvement in My Skin?
This treatment doesn’t deliver immediate results, but it is a fast-acting injectable. Once you receive treatment, you’ll begin to notice an improvement in your skin within seven days of treatment. Some patients notice improvements after two to three days; for others, it takes at least seven days. Your best results will appear 30 days post-treatment, and you will be able to live wrinkle-free for several months at a time.
How Long Do Results Last?
Botox results are long-lasting. Patients typically enjoy results for three to six months based on how quickly their body metabolizes the product. Regardless of when your results begin to fade, as long as we schedule regular follow-up treatments, you can be free of wrinkles long-term.
Some wrinkles form from repetitive muscular movements, and it takes an injectable neurotoxin to relax those muscles and, in doing so, smooth those wrinkles. Then, there are wrinkles that form on the middle and lower half of the face that require a different type of wrinkle treatment. At our office, we have just the thing. We offer several different dermal fillers that can restore volume to the face to smooth facial folds, wrinkles, and lines.
What Can I Expect From the Treatment Process?
The Botox and dermal filler treatment processes are similar in that both are administered with a very fine needle. We can apply a numbing cream before administering dermal fillers to help numb the area and help you maintain comfort throughout the session.
When Will I Notice Results?
When you choose a dermal filler to treat your unwanted wrinkles, you can expect to see immediate results. As soon as one of our injectors administers your chosen dermal filler into your problem area, you’ll see an improvement in those facial folds, lines, and wrinkles. You will achieve smoother, plumper, voluminous skin that conveys youth and health.
It’s important to note that even though you will see immediate results as soon as your appointment is over, those results will not be your final results. As the filler settles within your skin, your results will improve in the week following your treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
Dermal fillers deliver long-lasting results. Most allow you to enjoy wrinkle-free skin for a year or longer. It depends on the product used, the injection location, and the rate at which your body metabolizes the product. During an initial consultation, we can evaluate your problem area, determine which treatment is right for you, and then provide you with a better idea of how long your results will last.
Which Fillers Do You Offer?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dermal fillers, which is why we offer several different reputable brands that deliver some incredible results. At our office, we offer Juvederm, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse, and Restylane. All of these fillers are excellent options that can enhance your features and treat wrinkles. They deliver natural and long-lasting results when administered by an expert injector like those at our office.
What Are the Benefits of Dermal Fillers?
The number one benefit of dermal fillers is that they can treat wrinkles and deliver natural results without any downtime. Patients love these treatments because not only is the treatment session quick, but many fillers are formulated with lidocaine to reduce discomfort. Results are long-lasting and will help improve your confidence in your appearance and help you be free of wrinkles that have formed as a result of volume loss.
Skincare products are underrated when it comes to treating wrinkles. When you commit to a skincare routine with medical-grade products, you can help minimize wrinkles and, in some cases, even erase them completely. Our office offers several different lines that you can add to your morning and evening skincare routine that will slowly yet surely improve your skin and help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Sometimes the solution to wrinkles is the simplest one: changing your skincare routine. If you want to invest in medical-grade products that work, we offer several different products, including advanced retinol and some of the most powerful skincare lines like Obaji and Dermablend that offer different anti-aging solutions that can transform your skin over time.
Customizing Your Treatment
If you’re noticing wrinkles on your face, we have a wrinkle treatment that can help meet your aesthetic needs. The first step to address your area of concern is to schedule an initial consultation because not every product, treatment, and injectable can address the same kind of wrinkles. For that reason, our experts will need to evaluate your problem area to determine which of our treatments and products can best help eliminate your unwanted wrinkles and help you increase your confidence in your appearance so that you can feel more like your younger self again.
Enhancing Your Results
All of these treatments can erase your lines and wrinkles, but you can enhance your results by considering some factors. Sun exposure, lifestyle choices, and habits can contribute to wrinkles. Staying out of the sun, eating a healthy diet, and investing in a medical-grade skincare line can enhance treatment results, regardless of whether you choose to use dermal fillers, Botox, products, or all of the above to address your wrinkles.

You don’t have to live with lines and wrinkles. Yes, they are a sign of aging, but they don’t have to be. You can take the necessary steps to combat the aging process and even reverse it with the right products and treatments. If you want to say goodbye to unwanted wrinkles, our experts are equipped to help you do just that.
