One of the natural parts of aging is increased fine lines and wrinkles and decreased volume of certain parts of your face. Many people wish for a solution to help skin appear to be more youthful and rejuvenated.
Fortunately, there are many treatments you can take advantage of to reduce the appearance of these effects of aging.
Cosmetic injectables are one simple treatment you might turn to when you notice the effects of aging on your skin. Our team of qualified medical professionals offers three major types of cosmetic injectables at Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery: Dysport, Restylane Lyft, and Perlane.
How do you know which one is right for you? Compare their mechanisms and how they can help minimize the effects of aging in this detailed breakdown.
Dysport Injections for Frown Lines
Frown lines between the eyebrows are a common visible sign of aging. These are known as dynamic wrinkles and are caused by the repeated contractions of your muscles in this part of your face. Dysport injections are a method of alleviating the appearance of some of these moderate to severe lines.
How Dysport Injections Work
Dysport injections are administered in five unique points between and over the eyebrows to help eliminate the appearance of fine lines. This treatment works by blocking the signals between nerves and facial muscles. As a result of decreased activity, the skin over the muscles is in the perfect position to smooth itself.
What to Expect with Dysport Injections
The treatment session for Dysport cosmetic injectables is relatively short, making it easy to work into your busy schedule. Most appointments can be completed in as few as 10 to 20 minutes. You can expect to see the optimal results about 10 to 14 days after the treatment.
Keep in mind that the effects of this injectable are only temporary. You may need to come in for a touch-up every 90 days to see lasting results in the appearance of your frown lines.
Who is the ideal candidate for Dysport? Both men and women can benefit from this treatment. If you are struggling with the signs of aging between your eyebrows, then this injectable may be the perfect fit for you. We recommend Dysport for patients of all skin types and tones.
Restylane Lyft Dermal Fillers
Perhaps frown lines are not your major concern, but you notice other effects of aging on your face. Restylane Lyft is different from Dysport because it does not impact your muscles to smooth your skin. Instead, it works to increase the volume of your face in areas that have started to look more hollow, flat, or sagging.
One of the major areas that Restylane Lyft can treat is the moderate to severe lines that stretch from the nose to the corners of the mouth. These are known as nasolabial folds. Many people also use this Restylane Lyft to plump up lips.
How Restylane Lyft Works
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid, so Restylane is a completely natural and non-invasive treatment that can combat the signs of aging. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane will function the same as your natural acid and can be broken down by your body easily as time passes.
What to Expect with Restylane Lyft Dermal Fillers
Sessions for Restylane Lyft can take a bit longer than Dysport sessions. Treatment times can take up to 45 minutes, but the longevity of the treatment is much greater.
Most of our patients will see results from Restylane Lyft that last six months to one year. Keeping up with a solid skincare routine can enhance the length of time that you will see results from this treatment.
Perlane Dermal Fillers
Another popular cosmetic injectable, Perlane, is an excellent dermal filler with similar benefits to Restylane. Both are created with hyaluronic acid, the natural ingredient found in your skin. Perlane has been used to treat fine lines and wrinkles for more than 20 years, so you can rest assured that there is plenty of proof in the results.
How Perlane Works
Areas that can be targeted with Perlane include:
- Nasolabial folds (from the mouth to the corners of the mouth)
- Lip lines
The good news for those who are considering this dermal filler is that results are seen relatively quickly. Many of our patients report noticing the results of their treatment before even leaving our office.
What to Expect with Perlane Dermal Fillers
As with many other treatments, it takes very little time for our team of experienced professionals to administer Perlane dermal fillers. There is little to no downtime with a Perlane injection, allowing you to drive yourself to and from your appointment. This makes it even easier to arrange for treatment.
While the results are visible almost immediately, remember that no cosmetic injectables offer permanent solutions to aging. You may need to get a touch-up treatment about six to nine months following your initial treatment.
