Cosmetic injectables help you achieve a more youthful, younger-looking appearance. They contain substances that reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other visible signs of aging. Depending on your unique goals and skin condition, there’s always a specific formula to address your individual needs. At Le Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, TX, we offer various age-defying treatments that last long and deliver empowering results.
How Do Cosmetic Injectables Work?
Dermal fillers and Botox have become popular choices for achieving plump, youthful, and smooth skin. They are small injections of gel, typically consisting of hyaluronic acid or neurotoxins. When used in age-defying treatments, they soften wrinkles by adding volume to soft tissues. Hyaluronic acid is a natural material present in many parts of the body, including the joints and skin.
Dermal fillers and Botox retain the structure of your facial tissues. They can also eliminate deep lines, wrinkles and improve the appearance of the skin. You may choose to have dermal fillers in various areas of your face, depending on the cosmetic problem you’d like to fix. Some fillers can also induce the body’s natural reaction to create collagen, which gives you a much longer-lasting result for skin rejuvenation.
What’s the Difference Between Neurotoxins and Dermal Fillers?
Both options help you look younger, but do so using different substances and mechanisms. Neurotoxins freeze the tiny muscles in your face and keep them from performing the motions that trigger the appearance of wrinkles. They provide a convenient, non-invasive way to smoothen out surface lines and wrinkles.
In comparison, dermal fillers cause your skin tissues to become more plump from below the wrinkles, encouraging a more youthful appearance. Depending on your aesthetic goals, a mixture of neurotoxins and dermal fillers will have the most significant effect on your appearance.
The Most Popular Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers help to make your face look smoother and fuller. They are suitable for treating deeper lines and wrinkles present even when the face is at rest. Dermal fillers may be made up of a number of substances, some naturally occurring and some synthetic.
Like other facial areas, the lips and mouth show visible signs of aging as we grow old. Sun exposure can also result in lip thinning, loss of volume, and the appearance of vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is developed specifically for lip augmentation and smoothing wrinkles so that you can restore a youthful appearance.
Restylane Silk is engineered to achieve natural outcomes that won’t alter your facial structure or expressions. The formula uses smaller, finer hyaluronic acid particles than in other Restylane fillers. Restylane Silk shows visible results that last from six to nine months.
Our bones give form and contour to our faces. As we age, shrinkage of bone volume leads to a loss of a well-defined facial structure. It is especially true for the jawline. Another result of aging is the loss of facial volume that may result in flat cheeks, saggy skin, and jowls. To reverse these unwanted signs of aging, you may choose Restylane Lyft as a dermal filler.
Restylane Lyft will improve your facial features and bring out your personality, no matter how old you are. We choose this filler for the correction of volume loss and the treatment of wrinkles. Restylane Lyft is also designed to add fullness to the lips, temples, and folds using non-surgical injections. Your results can last from 12 up to 18 months.
The skin loses elasticity as we age. The lines running from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and the corner lines to the chin become prominent. Restylane Refyne is our treatment of choice for nasolabial folds and fine lines.
As a unique filler, Restylane Refyne is built to help promote your unique expression. You’ll enjoy results that help sustain natural movement while you’re smiling and talking. Visible results can last from 12 to 18 months.
Restylane Defyne is our preferred filler for smoothening deeper nasolabial folds and laugh lines. It decreases the appearance of wrinkles by improving the firmness of the skin. The unique formula is designed to help you restore a more natural look to your face without altering your unique facial expression. This filler remains effective from 12 up to 18 months.
Juvederm Volbella is a dermal filler used in the mouth region. We recommend it for improving the outline of the lips and minimizing the appearance of fine wrinkles. We can even use it to treat signs of aging under the eyes. Juvederm Volbella is the best product to use for tiny fine lines and subtle enhancement of the lips.
Juvederm Volbella is also ideal for adding volume to thin lip lines. The smaller particle size of this filler enables your lips to be corrected without adding too much volume. The fillers can provide visible results that last from 12 up to 18 months.
Juvederm Vollure is a smooth, transparent, and very malleable gel and more durable than other fillers. This solution is different from conventional hyaluronic acid fillers. It has an increased fluidity, making it move more in harmony with your gestures and natural expressions. It gives you a more natural look. Juvederm Vollure is our treatment choice for different facial areas such as nasolabial folds, fine lines, and the lips. The duration of its effectiveness lasts from 10 up to 12 months.
As we age, our cheeks naturally begin to lose volume, as the skin can lose its elasticity and cause a little sagging. Would you like to enhance facial volume in your cheeks and have a fuller, more youthful appearance?
Juvederm Voluma is thicker and ideal for adding bulk to the face. We use it for facial areas such as the lips, temples, and deep folds. We recommend this filler to those who have suffered a loss of volume in their faces and cheeks due to aging or disease. With Juvederm Voluma, you can enjoy visible results that last from 18 up to 24 months.
The active ingredient in Kybella is an enzyme in the body that helps to absorb and digest dietary fat. When inserted into the fat under your jaw, Kybella causes the death of fat cells. Once permanently damaged, these cells can no longer store fat. It is our ideal treatment for “double chins”. You can enjoy visible results in approximately four treatment sessions, with effects that last for the long term.
The main ingredient in Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). It is known for stimulating collagen production, with effects that can last from a year to two. Sculptra does more than just “fill” the face. It helps the skin naturally renew and rejuvenate itself. Thanks to its unique formula, you can enjoy treatment results that gradually improve over time and last much longer than other cosmetic treatments.
The Most Common Neurotoxins
The underlying causes of fine lines on the face are repetitive muscle movements. Whenever we frown, laugh, or squint, deep lines and wrinkles slowly develop over time. Neurotoxins help reduce the presence of lines and prevent new ones from developing by “freezing” or pausing unwanted muscle activity. The temporary absence of contracting facial muscles will cause fine lines to be diminished or lost as the skin spontaneously renews itself.
In small doses, Botox works to reduce skin wrinkles and helps treat certain medical conditions. This injection is by far the most common cosmetic treatment performed globally, helping millions of people battle wrinkles and rejuvenate their appearance. It is our treatment of choice for smoothing dynamic wrinkles, which gradually appear as a result of facial gestures. Botox injections have effects that last from three up to four months.
Dysport was initially formulated as the most natural neurotoxin for diminishing the lines in the glabella, the space between your eyebrows. These deep lines tend to become more noticeable when a person frowns or furrows their eyebrows. Dysport is widely used to treat glabellar wrinkles and is recommended for those who have either mild or severe cases. With this treatment, you can enjoy visible results that last from three up to four months.
Xeomin is our treatment of choice when it comes to addressing dynamic wrinkles. These include the forehead lines, fine lines around the eyes, and the deep lines between the eyebrows. Xeomin works by weakening facial speech muscles so that your new skin can grow without being affected by wrinkle-causing facial tissues.
Xeomin is a distilled form of neurotoxin, formulated in such a way that it eliminates accessory proteins from the active ingredient. Its effects remain noticeable from three up to four months.
Which Injectables Should You Choose?
Dermal fillers and neurotoxins are some of the most modern solutions when it comes to restoring youthful beauty. Although they target similar aesthetic problems, they function differently. Their use is not always interchangeable. Neurotoxins treat wrinkles by paralyzing the surrounding muscles. They are specifically intended to combat the stubborn wrinkles induced over your lifetime by repeated movements. It is the best choice for treating lines that illustrate when facial expressions are made.
Fillers, on the other hand, “fill in” the areas they are injected into, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as a result. They are intended to resolve aesthetic problems caused by the loss of skin volume and the decrease of collagen in the skin.
How We Ensure Your Safety
Cosmetic treatments are generally safe and non-invasive, but we must still take proper caution and care. During your initial consultation, we may ask you if you are taking medications, such as prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Some medicines may not be compatible with the substances in the treatment and can cause unfavorable results.
