When a new year starts, people start setting new goals for their careers, relationships, and health. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. This causes the skin to sag and wrinkle. If your new resolution includes getting younger-looking and smooth skin, Care Esthetics can help! Whatever your needs may be, our aestheticians are able to help you make an informed decision about your next steps in rejuvenating your skin.
Here are the two popular treatments that can help you out:
This popular injectable treatment is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, as well as prevent the formation of future wrinkles. It is made from purified proteins called botulinum toxin A – the same compound that causes food poisoning in large amounts. When used for cosmetic purposes, however, it’s completely safe. The treatment works by blocking nerve signals to your muscles which temporarily paralyzes your facial muscles. This prevents them from contracting and creating wrinkles when they normally would. Wrinkles have been caused by repetitive muscle movements over the years, which is why these treatments are recommended for those in their 30s and older. However, younger patients can also get Botox injections if their aesthetician believes they are a good candidate for it. These treatments can be completed in as little as ten minutes and require no downtime whatsoever. A few days after the treatment, you will notice results such as smoother skin and a more youthful appearance!
A dermal filler is a gel-like substance that is injected underneath the surface of the skin to correct wrinkles, folds, and other facial imperfections caused by aging. There are many different types of fillers available on the market today, and they include different materials as well as different consistencies. Once injected beneath the skin, they instantly plump up the area beneath it to provide a youthful appearance.
Popular types of fillers include hyaluronic acid, collagen, calcium hydroxylapatite, polymethylmethacrylate, and fat. All of these materials work to fill in deep set lines and wrinkles for a beautiful look that can last from six months to two years, depending on the type used. Another benefit of fillers is that they are semi-permanent, making them easy to remove should a patient want to.
