Aging is an inevitable part of life, and unfortunately, so are the signs of aging. Over time, the creasing in our skin becomes deeper and more defined. Our skin also loses its ability to rejuvenate as quickly and can become hollowed out or saggy.
With major advancements in medicine coming more and more rapidly, we at Laser MD MedSpa offer all the latest minimally invasive tools needed to fight back and preserve our youthful appearance. With injectable relaxers like BOTOX® and injectable fillers like Juvéderm® and Radiesse® you can customize the perfect treatment to fit your individual cosmetic goals.
BOTOX is derived from a naturally occurring toxin that has been purified to work as a neuromuscular inhibitor for targeted muscles in the face. In doing so, it minimizes and prevents fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the brow and forehead. The solution is injected into the desired area of the face, which in turn relaxes the over-articulation of the muscles responsible for wrinkling.
In addition, BOTOX is used to dramatically reduce hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, typically under the arms.
Types of Fillers
Like BOTOX, fillers are also injectable treatments used to reduce the signs of facial aging. The difference between the two is the way in which they function.
While BOTOX blocks signals to the muscles, fillers like Juvéderm, Juvéderm Voluma® XC, and Radiesse are used to add volume and hydration to hollowed areas of the face while promoting the production of collagen. In doing so, they can also reduce and prevent wrinkling while adding a much smoother and more youthful element to your look. Though fillers all share a similar function, each has its own distinct strengths and weaknesses.
Juvéderm is a popular new filler comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural yet potent hydration filler used to add volume and smoothness to the face. This injectable is generally most effective around the mouth, nose, and forehead.
Voluma XC, also made by Juvéderm, provides a subtle lift that can last up to two years and is used mostly around the mid-face or cheek region.
Radiesse is another long-lasting filler that helps to correct smile lines and other wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Instead of hyaluronic acid like Juvéderm, Radiesse is comprised of tiny calcium-based microspheres that act as robust pillars to restore facial volume and reduce surface lines.
During your consultation with a practitioner at Laser MD MedSpa, you will hash out which treatment is appropriate to best fit your individual needs and preferences. The innovative procedures at Laser MD MedSpa can benefit both men and women, offering a safe, affordable, and convenient way to fight the signs of aging.
