Many facial wrinkles are caused by muscle movements. The repetitive motions made by your muscles each day can cause lines and wrinkles; you’ll frequently notice these between the brows, around the eyes, and across the forehead. Botox relaxes these muscles allowing the wrinkles to fade away. Treatment is quick (usually about 10 minutes or less) and you’ll see results in just a couple of days. Don’t make the mistake of thinking Botox is just for older patients. Even in your 20s these wrinkles can start to appear and there’s no need to wait to start Botox.
Botox is both popular and safe. In 2013 it was the number 1 most popular cosmetic procedure with more than 6 million treatments performed.
As the face ages it loses volume allowing wrinkles and folds to appear. Juvederm is an injectable gel filler than can re-volumize your skin, smoothing wrinkles away instantly. It is also a very effective lip enhancer. The filler is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in your body (so it carries very little risk of an allergic reaction). The injection process takes about 15 minutes start to finish and there’s almost no downtime after treatment. The results can last for up to 9 months with a single treatment.
Sculptra and Voluma
These two great dermal fillers act as facial volumizers and can be used to sculpt the cheeks and jawline. Sculptra has been nicknamed the “Non-Invasive Facelift” and can lift and recontour skin for up to 2 years. Voluma is also long lasting (2 years with optimal treatment) and is the first and only filler FDA approved to add volume to the cheek area. If you’re looking for a quick lift without surgery, Sculptra and Voluma are the fillers you need.
