What’s the Best Injectable for You?
Wrinkles that show up on the face and forehead are often some of the first visible signs of aging. Not only does the skin begin to lose support and elasticity as time goes by, but repetitive movements of facial muscles can cause the skin to furrow and wrinkle. In the battle against skin aging, minimally-invasive treatments with aesthetic injectables have grown immensely popular as a way to rejuvenate the face without having surgery.
Botulinum Toxin Type A
Products that contain botulinum toxin type A work to smooth forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and other wrinkles that are caused by repetitive muscle movements. The active ingredient is a neurotoxin that causes muscles in the face to relax by safely blocking the transmission of nerve impulses. With little or no downtime and results that are almost immediate, botulinum toxin type A injections can help you temporarily restore a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Unlike dynamic wrinkles caused by facial expressions, static wrinkles remain even when the face is at rest. Static wrinkles are the inevitable result of aging as the skin loses some of its elasticity and fullness. To counteract the effects of time, dermal fillers are used to temporarily reduce or eliminate wrinkles, create fuller lips and add volume beneath the skin with smooth and natural results. Dermal fillers are injected during a brief “lunch hour” procedure.
