When you laugh, smile, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes, mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry, or tired. Injections can prevent you from deepening these lines as you create your natural facial expressions. They can also erase marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.
Dysport will help to weaken the muscles that cause wrinkles, such as frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes, and drooping at the corner of the mouth. A series of tiny injections will give you a rejuvenated look by smoothing your lines and wrinkles. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause the wrinkles.
The treatment generally takes 10-20 minutes and results generally last 3-6 months. In order to maintain your results, injections will need to be repeated as muscle movement and expressions return. After several treatments, the results may be prolonged.
You will have little to no downtime following the injections and minimal discomfort. Typically, there is no bruising or swelling with the injections and you may return to work and resume your normal activities that same day.
Even though these injections are not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified injector. Injectors that are less familiar with the techniques could leave you looking “frozen” or “surprised”.
Dysport - $6 per unit
Fillers - Beginning at $500
You can instantly smooth away facial wrinkles and lines with fillers.
Facial fillers are a non-surgical approach to enhance the signs of aging. These products can be used to restore volume and fullness into the soft tissue of the face and to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as laugh lines, marionette lines, lipstick lines, and corners of the mouth.
Fillers are usually formed from hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar found in all living cells and one of the major components of the dermis connective tissue, along with collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density. By combining lidocaine with the filler injections discomfort during the injection has been minimized.
Injections of fillers are a non-surgical option that may:
Smooth deep furrows and wrinkles
Restore volume to the cheeks and fullness to the lips
Fill in marionette lines and naso-labial folds around the mouth
While results are not permanent, they can last up to a year, and possibly longer depending on the product. After your treatment, you might have some swelling redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and will normally last less than seven days.
