As we age, looking in the mirror can show signs of aging and a complexion that does not match the youthfulness we feel inside. Lines and wrinkles can damage our self-esteem and our overall sense of well-being, leaving us feeling disconnected from our appearance. Contact the caring and compassionate professionals at Elements Rejuvenating Med Spa in Davenport, FL to discuss how cosmetic injectables can help restore the balance between your outward appearance and your inner sense of self.
What Are Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are designed to immediately address the most prominent signs of aging, like moderate to deep wrinkles and folds and volume loss in areas like the cheeks and temples. Cosmetic injectables come in two forms, both addressing different areas of concern.
The most popular and well-known injectable in this family is BOTOX. BOTOX works by targeting wrinkles at their root cause—movement. When expertly injected into the muscles we use to make repetitive facial expressions, it blocks the impulse from the nerve to the muscles.
When these muscles’ ability to move is lessened or halted, they relax. As the muscles relax, the skin over them is given time to smooth out, reducing or eliminating lines that have formed through years of expressions.
Results often appear within a week and may last three to four months. Clients who adhere to a follow-up schedule may achieve seamless results in areas like:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Bunny lines
The second family of cosmetic injectables is dermal fillers. These injectables are formulated to fill areas of volume loss due to collagen breakdown. Collagen is the protein that gives youthful skin its structure, elasticity, and vibrancy. When the structure in our faces breaks down, our skin can fall to fill in hollow areas, creating wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are often made of a synthetic form of a naturally occurring substance in our bodies called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid helps our skin attract and keep moisture so our faces look dewy and plump. When injected into moderate-to-deep facial lines and folds, they are immediately plumped and our youthful fullness restored.
Because they are made of a synthetic hyaluronic acid, they also work to keep our skin hydrated and natural-looking. They are formulated to be soft and pliable, helping you to look rested and vibrant without looking as if you’ve had “work” done. Dermal fillers can address:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Thinning lips
- Hollow cheek, temple and cheekbone areas
