Treat fine lines and wrinkles with cosmetic injections, including Botox and dermal fillers
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
Fine lines and wrinkles tend to develop on the adult face after the age of 30, as the natural store of collagen and elastin in the skin begins to deplete. This results in skin laxity that causes the face to lose the youthful firmness often seen in the young adult years. However, this doesn’t mean you have to put up with an aging appearance! Thanks to continued advances in the skin industry, both men and women can combat fine lines and wrinkles with cosmetic injectables, including Botox and dermal fillers.
Understanding cosmetic injectables
In the past, the only way to address mild to moderate wrinkles and folds on the face was to undergo extensive surgical procedures such as a brow lift or facelift. With the use of cosmetic injectables, patients can obtain similar results without ever having to go “under the knife.” Surgical solutions are often left for more severe cases of aging skin while cosmetic injectables have taken a front seat instead! Dr. Magdy Nasra is pleased to offer both neuromodulators, such as Botox, and dermal fillers.
Botox works differently than dermal fillers. Botox is a medication that is injected into the muscles of the face to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, including crow’s feet, forehead folds, and glabellar lines. These wrinkles are smoothed over the course of a week, and results will last up to six months before reinjection is required. On the other hand, dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid gels that are injected directly into the wrinkles and folds to fill them and smooth the skin. Dermal fillers and Botox can be used together for ultimate improvements.
