As we age the processes that once allowed our skin the elasticity and smoothness of youth begin to slow. Collagen, the scaffolding behind the skin that makes it appear firm and supple, is not as ample as in our youth and damage from unprotected sun exposure and the environment begin to take a toll on the way our skin looks. Along with the effects of age, repeated facial expressions can deepen lines around the brows, eyes, nose, and mouth.
Facial injectables like Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport® and facial fillers like Restylane® and Radiesse® work with your body to help smooth wrinkles and replump areas that have lost volume with time.
Botox® and Dysport® are two variations of dermal injectables that help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles in between the eyes and forehead. They are both made from purified strains of the botulinum toxin and work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.
For the other areas of the face, Restylane® and Radiesse® are fillers that can be injected around the nose, mouth, and cheeks to restore the volume and suppleness that our skin loses as we age. These fillers also refine creases, fine lines, and wrinkles to give you a younger-looking visage instantly. Radiesse® even boosts the body’s natural collagen production rate so results last longer!
Dermal injectables are an excellent option for those who may not be ready for more extreme anti-aging measures like plastic surgery, but still want to renew and refresh their appearance.
