Cosmetic Injectables for Facial Rejuvenation
People today want their outward appearance to match the youthful energy they feel inside. That’s why more men and women are choosing treatments with Cosmetic Injectables to achieve a more youthful and refreshed look without surgery or downtime. Whether you have wrinkles that are dynamic (caused by repetitive facial expressions) or static (present even when the face is at rest), injectables can be used to smooth out lines and wrinkles with natural results.
The treatments we use in the fight against wrinkles are Soft Tissue fillers and Botulinum Toxin. Fillers work to smooth facial lines and creases by replenishing lost volume, moisture and support within the skin. In contrast, Botox weakens the underlying muscles that cause excessive wrinkles when we make facial expressions. Both types of treatments are temporary and results must be maintained over time.
Soft Tissue Fillers
Soft Tissue Dermal Fillers include well-known brands such as Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero Balance, Prevelle Silk and Radiesse. These fillers have never been more popular because of their effectiveness in producing immediate results with no downtime after being administered during a “lunchtime treatment” that is quick and simple.
Dermal fillers are used to temporarily smooth out fine lines and wrinkles such as smile lines, marionette lines and lipstick lines. These types of wrinkles form as the skin loses volume and support with age. By restoring lost skin volume and restoring levels of natural substances such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, a “liquid facelift” with fillers can make your skin feel smoother and look younger.
Botulinum Toxin products available for cosmetic use include BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin. When injected into the muscles beneath the skin, botox temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows while preserving your natural facial expressions.
BOTOX Cosmetic has been safely used since 2002 when it was approved by the FDA for certain types of wrinkles, such as the glabellar lines (frown lines) between the eyebrows. Today, botox is the No. 1 aesthetic treatment of all because of its ability to restore a revitalized, more youthful appearance with a minimally-invasive procedure that takes just a few minutes.
Combination Therapy with Injectables
If appropriate, botox and dermal fillers can be used together to relax the muscles that generate dynamic wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin by replacing lost volume. This type of combination wrinkle therapy is a growing trend that can take years off of your face.
Whether you undergo facial rejuvenation with botox, a filler or a combination of both, your injectables provider must have the skills and experience to place the injections precisely where they are needed to get the best results.
