Posts for tag: facial injectables

It’s the new year – the perfect time to start creating the new you. If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, it’s simple – do something about it. If you’re beginning to notice more fine lines and wrinkles, so is everyone else. But it’s not about them. It’s about you, and your desire to rejuvenate your skin.

We can definitely help you with that, here at Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in Delray Beach.  Anti-aging treatments are one of our passions, and the minimally invasive procedure - facial injectables, which help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and restore volume and fullness are just what the doctor is not ordering but is highly recommending. The result is a more youthful appearance.  

Injectables Are Very Popular

As a society, we can’t get enough of the injectables. In a report released last year by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the two categories of facial injectables – Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and Soft Tissue Fillers, also known as dermal fillers led the way in the top five minimally invasive procedures performed in 2017. Both grow more popular, each year.

Try Botox to Target Wrinkles

Botox is a treatment that can temporarily smooth or reduce facial fine lines and wrinkles, on the brows, forehead and around the eyes (crow’s feet). It can also be used to lift the corners of the mouth and soften a square jawline. Here’s how it works: a licensed aesthetician injects the substance in target areas of the skin. The injections block nerve impulses, and weakens muscles, relaxes wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look.  You’ll start to notice an improvement within days, and its effect can last four to six months. If you’re wondering how to get rid of deep creases, you now have the answer: Botox.

The Beauty of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are also called wrinkle fillers. These gel-like injectables are typically made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that helps the skin maintain hydration. The procedure involves an aesthetician the substances right beneath the skin. Dermal fillers soften facial creases and wrinkles and enhance shallow contours. They can also be used to plump thin lips. The time in which you’ll start seeing results, along with the length of time the effects will last, varies, dependent upon the brand of dermal filler used, as well as the area of your face that was targeted in the procedure.  For example, Restylane will last about 6 or seven months, while Juvederm can last from six months to two years.

The Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Botox

Both Botox and dermal fillers are excellent at fighting the signs of aging, but there are distinct differences between the two. For starters, Botox is more of a facial muscle relaxer, and targets wrinkles, reducing their movement and visibility. While on the other hand, dermal fillers will help target those wrinkles that are always present on your face, even when your face is relaxed. And unlike Botox, dermal fillers help plump more volume into your face.
