Rhytids Q & A

What are rhytids?

rhytidsRhytids are fine lines and minor creases in your skin. They’re typically the first visible signs of your skin’s aging process.

As you get older, your skin undergoes many changes that affect its tone and texture. These changes include a decrease in subcutaneous fat and collagen, which contribute to the development of lines and creases. 

How are rhytids different from wrinkles?

Rhytids and wrinkles may be used interchangeably, but they’re not the same. As noted, rhytids are the first visible signs of aging. They present as subtle, shallow lines and creases on your skin.

Wrinkles, on the other hand, are deeper lines and creases. At Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center, the cosmetic dermatology experts understand the differences between rhytids and wrinkles. 

To help you achieve a more youthful look, the dermatologists use various approaches based on the type of lines and creases you have so you get the most natural results. 

What are the treatments for rhytids?

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center specializes in cosmetic dermatology. They use many advanced treatments and therapies to smooth out rhytids. 

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that restore volume loss to smooth out your subtle lines and creases. 

Botox® and Dysport® 

Botox and Dysport are forms of botulinum toxin therapy that temporarily smooth out expressive facial lines and creases. 

Fraxel® laser treatments

The Fraxel laser is a fractionated laser tool Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center uses for skin rejuvenation treatments. The laser energy stimulates collagen production to restore your skin’s natural strength and resilience.

Skin tightening tools

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center uses radiofrequency energy for skin tightening. Radiofrequency energy contracts the proteins under your skin, which immediately tightens and lifts the skin. The heat from the radiofrequency energy also stimulates collagen production. 

Microneedling

Microneedling is a versatile cosmetic treatment that induces collagen production to smooth out your subtle lines and creases. 

Thread lifting

Thread lifting is an in-office treatment that uses dissolvable sutures and barbs to lift saggy skin and restore a more youthful look.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels exfoliate the top layer of skin to reduce the appearance of your rhytids. In addition to improving your appearance, treatment for rhytids may prevent the formation of wrinkles.

To schedule a consultation to discuss treatment for your rhytids, call Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center or book online today.
