Are you tempted to take the facial rejuvenation plunge, but a little confused about where to begin? You’re not alone. Understanding all of the different options available can be a bit overwhelming. First, start by identifying your goals. Maybe you’re trying to tighten up the skin under your jawline. Perhaps you want to make those annoying sunspots disappear. Or maybe you want to reduce the fine wrinkles that come as a natural part of aging.
If the latter is what you’re looking for, then facial rejuvenation using injectables may be a good fit for you. Different injectables offer different results. Some are better suited for specific areas of the face than other injectables.
Perhaps the most popular injectable on the market is Botox. It’s a popular choice because it is so effective at removing fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and brow line. Other brand names that achieve the same results as Botox are Dysport and Xeomin.
Botox and similar toxin based injectables work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in these areas so that they cannot form these lines. Other lines caused by sun damage will not disappear with Botox. Results aren’t permanent, so you can start and stop Botox if you feel it’s just not what you want at the moment. Botox lasts approximately three to six months, but you will notice that overtime
Fillers such as Juvederm or Kybella are injectables that work in a different way than drugs like Botox. They replace the subcutaneous fat under the skin that slowly disappears as we age. By doing this, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out, and a natural lift reappears in areas such as the cheeks, around the nose, around the mouth, the lips, and vertical lift lines. Fillers are a very popular way of bringing back that youthful look without drastically changing the appearance of the face.
