The aging process varies from one person to the next. The main causes in facial aging are changes in bone density, loss or displacement of fatty tissue and the breakdown of collagen and elastin. These causes can be related to intrinsic factors including hormones and heredity and extrinsic factors like free radical damage brought on by sun exposure, alcohol consumption, cigarette smoke and poor diet.
Can we turn back time?
Minimally invasive facial cosmetic treatments and surgical procedures coupled with superior skincare products, regularly scheduled anti-aging facial treatments, and healthy lifestyle habits can be your key to reducing the signs of aging. While some factors, like bone changes, can’t be prevented, others like fat, collagen and elastin loss can be minimized. Lifestyle choices like diet, exercise, and reduced sun exposure can quickly impact how these factors come into play.
Today, doctors have a better understanding of what causes facial aging and are better equipped to address areas that aging tend to creep up. The nasolabial folds, deep facial lines and wrinkles, and volume loss in the cheek area are the areas that tend to tell a person’s age. These areas are able to be effectively treated with and to provide better results using injectable solutions like Botox or Dysport, hyaluronic acid fillers, collagen-based stimulators and fillers, and even naturally injected fat.
The injectable revolution is the catalyst to the increase in noninvasive cosmetic treatments. The advancements in the use of injectables have come a long way in preventing and reversing the visible signs of aging and the indications for certain injectables are growing. Everybody can benefit from an injectable at some point in time – to stave off aging and promote a more youthful appearance.
Fillers can offer instant results, which is a major draw for many people. Botox takes 5-7 days te see and feel the full result. Many patients don’t want or can’t afford the downtime and overall cost that comes along with surgery.
Today’s injectable menu offers a wide array of products to address not only the wrinkles themselves, but the muscles that cause lines and furrows to form. Dermal fillers, such as Radiesse and Juvederm, plump up wrinkles while muscle blocking agents, such as Botox and Dysport, prevent the muscle contractions that lead to etched lines.
This “mix-and-match” approach is gaining popularity, and studies have shown doing these in conjunction can lead to longer-lasting results, since impairing the muscle function around the areas treated with fillers can slow the re-absorption of the product. No downtime and phenomenal results. What are you waiting for?
