Best Treatment for Lines and Acne Scars
Thank you for your question. You should consider Botox for the Crow's Feet and eyebrow furrows as they are caused by muscle movement. For acne scars, my preference is for ablative fractional resurfacing. Fraxel is good for fine lines. Nurses and other physician extenders can be extremely experienced in performing some procedures, but the regulations vary by state. I hope this helps!
Botox, Dysport or Xeomin Best for Wrinkles Around Eyes
Without seeing your
pictures, it is hard to determine which treatments would be best for you but I
think a combination of therapies would address your concerns the best. The fine
lines around your eyes and forehead may be best treated with a toxin like
Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin and the scars on your cheeks may be best treated with
a fractional laser of some type – non-ablative, ablative, RF fractional, or RF
Who does the
procedures is based on the office that you are going to and the skill of the
providers in that office. If you are comfortable with a board-certified
dermatologist or plastic surgeon, then they should be the ones doing the
Fraxel and Treatments by Physician
Fraxel is a fabulous laser and can improve the scars with 5 or 6 treatments depending on their depth. Little lines or wrinkles around the eyes and forehead may best respond to Botox. I would definitely not have a medical assistant do the treatment. This laser treatment should be performed by a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Fraxel.
Fraxel® Treatment for Fine Lines and Acne Scars
Fraxel® laser is the most effective all-encompassing treatment for superficial lines and acne scars.
Treatment for fine lines and acne scars
Fine lines around the crow's feet are caused by muscle movement-aka smiling so Botox would be the better option. Fraxel is a good option for fine lines but you may need multiple treatments. A combo of fillers and laser resurfacing for acne scars work best.
What is the best treatment for little lines around eyes and forehead and some acne scars on cheeks?
An in-person consultation would be the best way to truly determine what you need. In my practice, I do all of the CO2 laser/ fraxel treatments myself. Laser resurfacing is great for wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead as well as some acne scars, but there are also other resurfacing techniques that may be best for your individual conditions. Get a second opinion if you are not comfortable. I wish you well!
I recommend a customized treatment with tumescent anesthesia, subcision laser resurfacing and Fraxel Repair Laser to the scars.
You need a customized treatment to accurately treat the areas of concern without too much or too little. A combination treatment for the acne scars including tumescent anesthesia, subcisionn, and appropriate laser resurfacing will cover most of the things that you are concerned about in a single treatment. Good photos and a face to face consultation would be need to confirm the treatment plan.
