The skin you’ve always wanted is within reach at The Belleville Dermatology Center in Belleville, NJ.

Your Belleville, NJ dermatologist Dr. Joseph Eastern has several options when helping you combat the premature appearance of wrinkles and lines:

Fillers

Fillers come in several forms. Some products encourage plumpness in the skin by increasing the moisture content, while others stimulate the production of collagen. Other treatments are calcium-based and those that are of a gel-like consistency. Fillers work best just underneath the eyelid, with recessed scars and in hollow areas of the face. The results tend to last longer than botox, sometimes up to a year.

Botox

Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, is an effective treatment for wrinkles. It works by interfering with the nerve signals that the muscles of the face treated receive. Because of this, botox is better at lines that may appear across the forehead.

Routine Skin Exam

Cancer screening is a routine head-to-toe inspection of the skin. The dermatologist can perform the exam before assessing the appearance of wrinkles. Overexposure to UV light on the A and B spectrum can accelerate the appearance of aging.

When performing your daily skincare routine and treating any acne, be sure to wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days. Although the sun may not be shining, clouds trap the UV rays that work to age the skin.
