Fine Lines & WrinklesRequest Your Consultation
Several factors influence how our skin ages, including some that we can control to a degree, such as sun damage and smoking. Ultimately, however, the skin’s natural aging process leads to fine lines and wrinkles, but we can reduce these through nonsurgical treatments at our Maryville medical spa east of St. Louis.

Treatments for Fine Lines & Wrinkles
There often isn’t a single best treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. Our aesthetic specialists at The Spa at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery may recommend combining 2 or more nonsurgical procedures to produce comprehensive results by not only smoothing wrinkles but also restoring lost volume. These treatments can help reverse signs of aging caused by environmental factors, along with the intrinsic changes that occur when the skin loses its elasticity.
Learn more about each of the treatments by visiting the corresponding page:
BOTOX (as well as Dysport®) reduces forehead wrinkles and lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and vertical frown lines (elevens) between the eyes. These are called “dynamic wrinkles” because they’re caused by the repeated contraction of facial muscles when you change expressions.
Fillers such as JUVÉDERM®’s line of injectable gels help smooth fine lines and wrinkles by replacing lost volume. Most fillers are formulated to address specific types of wrinkles, such nasolabial folds and the fine lines around the mouth, such as smoker’s lines.
Our med spa specialists use the Eclipse MicroPen to perform microneedling, an increasingly popular treatment that prompts the skin to renew itself. The treatment triggers the body’s natural healing process, which includes the production of new collagen. The MicroPen creates micro-channels in the skin as tiny needles penetrate the treatment area. Optimal results occur when we pair microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, a treatment that uses the nourishing growth factors from your own blood to help improve the appearance of your skin.
One of the keys to getting a refreshed appearance is removing the skin’s dull outer layer. Microdermabrasion is another minimally invasive treatment that unclogs pores, removes dead cells, and exfoliates the skin.
