We all have that moment where we look in the mirror and wish we could turn back the clock. Sometimes it’s from basking in the glorious sunshine for too long, stressing out over getting the kids to school, or lack of beauty rest. Thankfully, technology has provided a way to turn back the clock – facial fillers.
Facial fillers are a non-surgical procedure that makes you look and feel younger. There are several injectables on the market to choose from, and each has its own unique advantage. While every patient is different and will require a thorough consultation to choose the best injectable for his or her needs, we’ve put together our list of the top three injectables to consider.
Botox is a purified neurotoxin that smooths fine lines and wrinkles for up to six months. It targets the muscle to block nerve impulses, reducing muscle activity that causes those persistent lines. Botox often treats lines between the eyebrows, forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes as well as unwanted lines on the mid-face, lower-face, neck, on the sides of the nose, vertical lip lines and muscle bands of the neck.
Bonus points: Botox can also treat TMJ and teeth-grinding for some patients.
Smiling is a part of life. It can’t (and shouldn’t!) be avoided. Thankfully, we have Juvéderm to treat those smile lines. Juvéderm is the first and only non-surgical hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to instantly smooth wrinkles around the nose and mouth for up to one year with optimal treatment. It also treats vertical lip lines and marionette lines.
Bonus points: Juvéderm contains a numbing anesthetic for minimum discomfort.
Restylane is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Additional products from the Restylane family also give the skin a youthful look.
Bonus points: Restylane can also be used for lip enhancement.
