GET SKIN-SPIRED …

In today’s skincare market, there is a wider selection of dermal fillers than ever before. Now more than ever, both men and women are looking for the happy medium between professional skincare treatments and pricey cosmetic surgeries.

Dermal fillers and other injectables can provide substantial improvements for a variety of aesthetic woes without having to go under the knife, but how do you know which one is right for you?

WRINKLES

Contrary to popular belief, many people can actually start to develop wrinkles as early as their 20’s. For most, it becomes problematic when these expression lines are still noticeable when the face is relaxed. Muscle-relaxing injectables like Botox and Xeomin can greatly reduce the appearance of the following:

Botox and Xeomin can also be used to lift the eyebrows and/or jawline, as well as smooth dimples in the chin. On average, patients enjoy results for 3 to 6 months following treatment.

LIPS

For patients looking for a fuller pout, both Volbella and Juvederm XC promise impressive results. Their main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which attracts water into the skin like a magnet. As a result, the area into which it was injected plumps up, and fine lines smooth out. Also, HA is naturally occurring in the body, so there is a decreased risk of an allergic reaction. These results can last anywhere between 6 to 18 months before the body begins to absorb the product, and a touch up is needed for maintenance.

CHEEKS

Flattening and/or sagging in the cheek area can age the face dramatically. Dermal fillers like Vollure and Voluma are designed to specifically target these areas and contribute to a more youthful appearance.

Both can provide results from 18 months up to 2 years.

GET THE RESULTS YOU DESIRE

Even more important than knowing your options is choosing the right provider. Selecting a professional with the necessary medical training, technique, experience, and knowledge of facial anatomy is essential in ensuring that you are satisfied with your results.
