Everyone ages slightly differently. You might see your first wrinkles on your forehead, while your best friend might notice her first lines near her mouth. Where your lines and wrinkles are and what type of wrinkles you have to determine the aesthetic services that best meet your needs. A few of the most popular options include injections that target wrinkles near the eyebrows and eyes and those that target wrinkles around the mouth. If you want to feel more confident when you look in the mirror, it might be worth considering one or more of the following treatments.
Your Aesthetic Services Options
BOTOX® injections help reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles created by frequent facial expressions over the years. Whether you’ve laughed a lot, frowned frequently, or raised your eyebrows repeatedly during your life, you might see furrows and creases as you age. The main ingredient in BOTOX® will relax the muscle that makes those movements, helping the wrinkle to fade. The injection offers a number of benefits aside from making you look more youthful. The treatment process typically takes just a few minutes and doesn’t require any time for recovery. The results last about three months and can be repeated to prevent wrinkles from returning.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid helps your skin stay hydrated, plump, and supple. Although your body naturally produces it, as you age, production drops, wrinkles become more visible, and skin looks drier and duller. Fillers such as Belotero® and Juvederm® each contain hyaluronic acid. Each is designed to plump the skin and fill in lines and wrinkles, such as the nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth. Although the two fillers contain the same main ingredient, each one contains a different form of the ingredient. The hyaluronic acid in Belotero® is thinner, so it’s better suited for filling in the finest lines on your face.
No matter which brand of filler you pick, you can rest assured that treatment will be quick and recovery time will be nearly nonexistent. Typically, your results will last anywhere from 6 months to a full year.
Radiesse® is another injectable that works as a filler. But, unlike Juvederm® and Belotero®, it’s made from calcium hydroxylapatite, a material heavier than hyaluronic acid. Radiesse® can help reduce the appearance of the nasolabial lines and lines near the chin and jowl. The injectable works in two steps. It instantly adds volume and fills in lines. Over time, the main ingredient stimulates the production of collagen in the dermal layer of the skin. Collagen is the protein that acts as the support system for your skin. Even after the initial effects of Radiesse® wear away, you’ll still enjoy results, thanks to the increase in collagen.
