You wake up one morning and look in the mirror. Suddenly, you start noticing the development of facial lines and wrinkles.
Now, the two most popular non-invasive procedures, neuromodulator and dermal filler injections, are performed by our medical providers for patients in our region so you can make those lines and wrinkles go away without surgery.
What causes lines and wrinkles?
Dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead creases are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. These lines can give a person an angry, tired or sad appearance even when they are not experiencing that emotion. Facial wrinkle creases begin to appear in the fold around the nose and lips, hollows under the eyes and temples, and in the brows as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to breakdown and wear out. While this break down is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from sun exposure and excessive squinting, frowning, smoking and smiling.
Liquid Facial Rejuvenation
Both patients and doctors are pleased with the wrinkle treatments that are now available. You can get rid of your dynamic wrinkles with botulinum toxin while your wrinkles caused by underlying collagen breakdown are dramatically improved with a variety of filler options.
Cosmetic denervation with Botulinum Toxin blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. It relaxes the underlying muscles so they don’t contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract normally, allowing normal facial expressions.
Filler products are used to replace the collagen your skin loses over time. These injections are placed beneath your skin where your body accepts them as its own. By supplementing your skin’s own collagen with liquid fillers, wrinkles and most scars are improved. We can also improve the appearance of deeper frown lines, folds around the nose and lips, as well as refill the hollows under the eyes, temples and brows.
What results can I expect from Liquid Facial Rejuvenation?
With a combination of botulinum toxin and liquid fillers we can get rid of many of the signs of an aging face immediately. Smooth out dynamic winkles with cosmetic denervation and fill out facial wrinkles with injectable fillers.
How are the procedures done?
Your injections usually take less than twenty minutes of your time. These injections can be associated with some mild discomfort which is lessened with the use of a topical or local anesthetic. The number of injections depends on the areas of treatment.
What are the limitations of Liquid Facial Rejuvenation?
These non-invasive treatments are only a temporary solution for the treatment of facial lines and creases. Results generally last from three months to a year.
What can I expect after my treatments?
Following your neuromodulator and dermal filler treatment performed by our medical provider, most normal activities can be resumed immediately. The treatment site may have swelling which may last a few hours. There may also be bruising, which can usually be covered up with make-up, over the course of a few days. Depending on the material used and the area treated, correction usually lasts from three months to a year or more. Allergic reactions are rare but may consist of prolonged redness, itching, and/or firmness at the injection site.
If you aren’t ready for surgery but want to get rid of wrinkles and look younger, Liquid Facial Rejuvenation may be the answer for you.
