As we age, our bodies often do not mirror the youthful vitality that we may have on the inside. Our facial skin loses elasticity from the effects of time, gravity and even sun exposure. Luckily, the experienced providers at Abraham Medical Cosmetics offer popular non-surgical procedures, cosmetic injections like Botox® and Dysport® and facial fillers Radiesse® and Restylane®, to help patients combat those common signs of aging that can keep them from looking as young as they feel.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the top two non-surgical procedures for 2013 were cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers with 8.5 million combined procedures performed. Why you may ask? Simply put, it’s an ideal facial rejuvenation procedure used to address wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet and areas of lost volume in a non-surgical way – with minimal downtime!
Over time, the combination of repetitive facial expressions and natural aging causes wrinkling to form on the forehead, brow, and eye area. Botox® Cosmetic is a dermal injectable made of a protein and neurotoxin in a purified form (Botulinum toxin A) that is used to relax muscles on the upper facial area. A few quick Botox® injections produce results that can generally last four months and create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
For other areas of the face around the nose, lips/mouth and cheeks that have lost suppleness with age, fillers like Restylane® and Radiesse®, made from the naturally occurring non-animal hyaluronic acid, restore lost volume and refine fine lines and deep wrinkles. Fillers additionally boost the body’s natural collagen production allowing results to last from six months to over a year depending on the specific filler used.
Cosmetic injectables are excellent solutions for adults who would like to renew their youthful appearance but may not yet be ready for more extensive surgical procedures like a facelift.
