Injectables are perhaps the most popular way to quickly and easily reduce visible signs of aging. The reason why is simple – these minimally invasive procedures are completed during a short office visit and provide immediate results. Botox has long been an accepted skincare solution that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. More recently, dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane have become an increasingly popular way to plump and contour the face.
Dermal fillers are a quick, easy, and affordable alternative to traditional plastic surgery. Syringes of a soft, gel-like substance are injected into specific areas of the face to fill-in wrinkles, plump lips, sculpt the jawline, and contour the skin. There are a range of FDA-approved fillers that are used by cosmetic dermatologists, however the most popular brands are made from a combination of hyaluronic acid and lidocaine.
Although dermal fillers are popular, don’t assume that just any aesthetician can administer them. Injectables require experience and knowledge to ensure safe and natural-looking results. Aspire Dermatology is proud to have a qualified team of cosmetic experts on staff – all who are highly skilled at the art of injecting dermal fillers.
Botox is a popular way to reduce visible wrinkles. In the last year alone, it’s been reported that over 1.5 million Botox injections were administered in the United States. No longer a well-kept secret, an increasing number of men and women alike are taking advantage of this injectable cosmetic dermatology treatment.
Unlike dermal fillers, Botox does not fill-in existing wrinkles. Instead, it relaxes areas of the face by paralyzing specific muscle groups beneath the surface of the skin. It’s typically used to treat and prevent the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead creases, and frown lines. Quick and pain-free, you’ll enjoy the results of your Botox session for anywhere from 3 – 6 months.
