01 Jun All about Injectables and Fillers at a Top Tempe Med Spa
When you frown, smile, laugh, or cry, you contract your facial muscles. Over time, these contractions make permanent wrinkles and furrows in the skin, particularly around the mouth, on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. These lines cause you to appear sad, old, angry, and/or tired. Dermal injectables and fillers at our Tempe Med Spa will prevent you from developing lines during normal facial movements. In addition, they can erase the signs of aging, leaving your skin looking fresh and young.
Botox injections in Phoenix are the most popular cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The solution injected is botulinum toxin A, which is a therapeutic muscle relaxant approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). When injected into the facial skin, Botox can block nerve action that is responsible for repetitive movements that lead to wrinkles and fine lines. This gives the skin a more smooth, sleek appearance.
During the office visit, the provider at our Phoenix Med Spa will cleanse the skin with an antiseptic. Then, the doctor injects several areas of the face with the Botox solution. You will notice decrease in wrinkling in around 24 hours, and the final results are seen after 3-5 days. The results of Botox can last for up to five months, with some patients reporting effectiveness that last for a full year.
A new advancement in facial fillers is Belotero. This is an FDA-approved injectable gel made of non-animal derived hyaluronic acid, which provides temporary results. This filler is used to correct furrows and wrinkles in the skin, mask facial depressions, and reduce facial lines.
Belotero is a unique filler that integrates in the dermal tissue to decrease fine lines, especially around the mouth, crow’s feet, and near the eyes. This filler is uses cohesive poly-densified matrix (CPM) technology, and it has an active elasticity. Belotero gives instant results, and it lasts for up to six months.
Restylane is a dermal filler used to restore volume to the skin. This FDA-approved product works by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane is used to treat the nasolabial folds (on each side of the mouth) and the glabellar lines, which are those between the eyebrows. In addition, Restylane can add shape and volume to the lips.
Restylane is made of a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. There is no pre-testing required for Restylane, and this product offers results that lasts for many months through its unique ability to bind to with water and linger in the skin. The results from the injectable filler are noticeable right away, and they can last for many months.
Juvederm injectable gel is an effective filler that restores skin volume and smooths moderate to severe skin folds and wrinkles. This product was the first FDA-approved dermal filler proven effective for African-Americans and persons with darker skin. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, and it offers natural-looking results.
During the procedure, the doctor at our Tempe Med Spa will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin first. Once the skin is numb, the doctor injects Juvederm into the folds and wrinkles, to fill the skin and plump up sunken areas and severe wrinkles.
Dermal fillers and injectables are effective for clients who show early signs of aging, or those who wish to avoid a facelift but want skin rejuvenation. The client should be in good physical health and a non-smoker. In addition, clients should have realistic goals, a positive outlook on life, and no skin infections or disorders.
