Beauty for Life: Injectables & Dermal Fillers

Beauty for LifeIn my last post, I discussed how healthy living and various skin care products can help you establish a solid foundation for a lifetime of beauty. As I noted, however, there comes a time when lifestyle choices and skin care can only go so far. When this time arrives, injectables and dermal fillers are next in the Beauty for Life treatment progression.

From nasolabial folds to crow’s feet to deep glabellar lines on the brow, injectables and dermal fillers can treat a variety of common aging indications. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be administered to relax targeted muscles that cause certain lines and wrinkles, and fillers like JUVÉDERM, Restylane®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic can be employed to volumize particular folds and areas of depression on the face. BELOTERO BALANCE® can be used for fine lines around the mouth, and also in the delicate tear trough area. Furthermore, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC can be utilized to add volume to the cheeks and midface, and innovative treatments such as fat injections and Bellafill® can fill deeper lines and wrinkles with long-lasting results.

Though there are a great deal of injectables and fillers that can be used based on your unique needs, injectables do not address discolorations – such as brown spots, broken blood vessels, and redness – caused by the damaging effects of lifelong sun exposure. When these treatments reach the limit of their potential for addressing your specific concerns, the next step is generally to contemplate laser treatments and nonsurgical skin tightening.

To learn about the various laser treatments and nonsurgical skin tightening procedures that come next in the Beauty for Life treatment progression, stay tuned for my third and final blog post.
