Since the introduction of Botox way back in 2002, there’s been an explosion in neuromodulators and dermal fillers to treat nearly any facial line or fold to improve the appearance of aging skin. Experience this revolution by coming to Skin Addict Studio to find out how our injectable offerings can help reduce the appearance of both static and expression-caused wrinkles.
Long-reigning as the king of botulinum toxin products, Botox has been FDA approved for injection into the forehead and around the eyes to diminish the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. It provides temporary relief by dampening the signal from the brain to the muscles, reducing the amount of wrinkles that show up during certain expressions.
Dysport is a relatively new option for those who haven’t had success with Botox or are allergic to any of its ingredients. Formulated slightly differently, Dysport also treats forehead lines and frown lines with a lighter molecule that can travel further throughout the skin. This is advantageous when treating large areas like the forehead, and could produce a better result in some people based on our initial consultation.
Juvéderm also offers custom formulas for different areas of the face, giving us even more options for helping naturally fill in folds and wrinkles throughout the face. These hyaluronic acid fillers work by drawing water molecules to the treatment area, causing long-lasting results that may not need to be touched up for up to a year following your first injection.
Restylane’s family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are specially formulated to be fine-tuned for certain facial areas, like the lips and cheeks, which require different thicknesses and injection sites. This allows our filler experts to totally hone in on what results are best achieved for your unique desire to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth or volume loss.
Radiesse is the first FDA-approved dermal filler that can treat both the face and hands, helping correct age-related volume loss that can make your hands seem older than you actually are. Restore a youthful appearance with this hyaluronic acid filler that can fill facial wrinkles and give your hands a lift at the same time.
Sculptra is a different kind of dermal filler in that it’s not composed of hyaluronic acid, but rather Poly-L-lactic acid. This active ingredient still provides volume improvement to soften the appearance of wrinkles, but it has an added benefit of stimulating collagen production long-term. This means that not only does it physically reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it also tackles the cause of it in the first place: degradation of skin tightening proteins with age.
For those who are looking for a quick and non-surgical way to “lift” or tighten the appearance of jowls, sagging eyebrows, or loose neck skin, a thread lift can be a temporary and effective way to do so. This technique uses tiny threads that grab the skin and physically lift it up to promote the appearance of tighter, firmer skin. This action also triggers the skin’s healing response, leading to a longer-term production of collagen that complements its effect.
