NON-INVASIVE TREATMENTS IN SACRAMENTO
Cosmetic injectables provide an array of exciting options to patients who seek facial rejuvenation without the risks, recovery and time commitment of surgery.
Dermal fillers rejuvenate the face by building volume, smoothing fine lines, improving deep wrinkles, softening contours and adding symmetry to any complexion. One secret to their success is the ability to stimulate production of collagen, the natural fountain-of-youth protein that adds strength and flexibility to the skin.
Dermal fillers often require a single injection, administered during a convenient office visit, and are effective for six months to a year or longer.
Even as dermal fillers have steadily gained popularity throughout the decade, traditional injectable muscle-relaxants are still the preferred choice for many patients. Injections of neuromodulator-type medications including Botox, Dysport and Xeomin erase deep facial folds and wrinkles by soothing muscle tension below the surface, allowing the skin to relax and skin to drape smoothly across your complexion.
These injectable options can be an ideal solution for crow’s feet as well as wrinkles between the eyebrows and on the forehead. Results typically last three to four months. Botox is often called a “lunchtime treatment” because it can be conveniently performed during a lunchtime appointment.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based filler used to fill in wrinkles and lines, including those that form around the mouth. It can also be used to fill flat or hollow facial areas, including the cheeks and the area below the lower eyelids. Results can last six months to a year.
Restylane is another hyaluronic acid filler that can smooth out moderate to severe nasolabial folds, laugh or smile lines, and lip wrinkles. Certain Restylane products can be used to temporarily lift sagging or flat cheeks. Results can last approximately six months.
