If you are interested in cosmetic services to deal with wrinkles or fine lines, your local cosmetic center will offer a variety of different procedures to meet the needs of each patient. Each of these procedures offers its own advantages and disadvantages. Below is an overview of some of the most common and effective cosmetic procedures available.
Juvederm® is a procedure your cosmetic doctor may recommend if you have deep wrinkles. It is a dermal filler that works by hydrating the skin and adding volume, thus restoring a more youthful appearance. Four different varieties of Juvederm® are available: the standard Juvederm®, Juvederm® XC, Juvederm® Ultra and Juvederm® Ultra Plus. Your doctor can help you determine which formulation of Juvederm® is best for you.
Juvederm® treatment can take as little as 15 minutes, depending on the formulation you choose. Results appear quickly and can last for up to a year.
If you have deep lines or folds around your nose and mouth, Radiesse® may be the best treatment option available. This synthetic injectable filler works by improving the skin’s natural collagen supply. After the treatment is complete, you will enjoy a fuller, more youthful appearance with fewer wrinkles and lines. Although Radiesse® is most effective when used to correct certain types of folds and lines on the face, it can be used to treat wrinkles on other parts of the body as well.
The most advanced dermal filler currently available, Belotero® is an ideal choice among patients looking for a more youthful appearance. This filler integrates with your existing tissues, adding volume and improve facial contours. Belotero® also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Studies have shown that Belotero® produces visible results in as many as 97 percent of patients. A variety of formulations are available, and results last for up to nine months or even more.
Perhaps one of the most well-known options for treating the signs of aging, BOTOX® is an injectable protein used to relax the muscles that cause certain types of wrinkles and fine lines. Side effects of this treatment are mild and usually disappear over time. Results appear within as little as 24 hours after the procedure. BOTOX® is most appropriate for wrinkles located on the neck and face.
