Wrinkles Q & A

How can I erase my wrinkles?

To repair wrinkles, you have to address the underlying causes that led your skin to break down in the first place. Some wrinkles may only need one type of treatment, while others may require several. 

When you come to Helena Dermatology & Montana Aesthetics PC for a wrinkle consultation, your aesthetic professional evaluates your skin and selects the therapy that’s best for you.


How do I improve wrinkles around my eyes and forehead?

If you have crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes, frown lines, or forehead furrows, then BOTOX Cosmetic® can help. Dr. Vellanki injects the dynamic muscles that created your wrinkles with Botox so that your skin can lie flat and smooth again.  


How do I improve deep grooves around my mouth and nose?

If you have nasolabial folds (NLF), marionette lines, and other deep wrinkles, you could benefit from dermal fillers that contain synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), such as the Juvéderm® family of fillers. 

An infusion of HA plumps up your wrinkles and creases, and your skin looks uniform and youthful again.


How do I smooth out fine lines?

If you have sagging skin, thin skin, or fine lines all over your face, you may benefit from a treatment that stimulates collagen remodeling, such as microdermabrasion, HydraFacials, Profound® RF, or the Icon laser.

Microdermabrasion and HydraFacial

Microdermabrasion is a mechanical treatment that “sands” away the topmost layer of your skin to remove dullness, discoloration, and fine lines. 

A HydraFacial is a three-step procedure that peels away the top layer of your skin, extracts lesions, and infuses your skin with protective antioxidants and peptides.

Profound RF

Profound RF uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to create microwounds in your skin to stimulate collagen remodeling. 

After your Profound treatment, your body produces twice as much collagen and up to five times as much elastin. Profound also stimulates your skin to produce more HA.

Icon laser

The Icon heats the inner layers of your skin so that your body begins flushing away old strands of collagen and elastin and remodeling itself with new collagen and elastin. The Icon treatments rebuild your skin and help it stay youthful and glowing for months to years.
