Christmas is fast approaching but there is still time to reduce wrinkles before the family photos are snapped. For many people in Tampa, the holiday season is the time to catch up with old friends and distant family. So it is usually a time of year that we want to look our best. One way to improve your appearance is to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging with quick acting dermal fillers and Botox.
Fillers for Christmas will Reduce Wrinkles
Dermal fillers are aesthetic treatments that are injected into the skin to revitalize the face and fill in lines and creases. They work to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and create volume where the skin is sagging. Many dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. This hyaluronic acid binds water and can help the skin to produce more elastic properties. When administered under the direction of a board-certified plastic surgeon in an accredited medical facility, fillers are extremely safe. The fillers revitalize the skin to provide a naturally younger appearance. Dermal fillers come in a variety of formulas and are known by several brand names such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane or Belotero. Each type of filler works on a temporary basis and the length of effectiveness will vary from 4 months to 18 months depending on the product used. Once the filler has run the course of treatment, they will be naturally absorbed by the body.
Botox works quickly to Reduce Wrinkles
Other injectable products that are used to reduce wrinkles are Botox, and the newer Xeomin. These are both neuro-toxins made from botulinum toxin type A. Botox works by blocking nerve activity in the muscles which will help not only reduce wrinkles but also prevent them while the drug is active. Botox works quickly to freeze facial muscles around the eyes, in the forehead region and sometimes around the mouth. Within a day or two following the injection, the patient will notice a significant reduction of the lines and wrinkles formed by skin damage and from making repeated facial expressions. Botox and Xeomin will generally give results that last from 4 to 6 months.
Work with a Qualified Plastic Surgeon for Best Results
With both dermal fillers and Botox type injectables, it is highly recommended that you seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon and make sure that the work is done in a fully accredited medical facility to get the best and safest treatment. According to Dr. Dominic Castellano of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery in Tampa, “all injectable products require that the dose be administered in exact amounts and be placed in precisely the right facial muscles to get optimal results. Injecting products aimed at reducing wrinkles requires a steady hand and much experience in order to provide the most natural look.” These products require only a quick office visit and will take full effect within a day or two following the injection. So there is still time to see results prior to the Christmas and New Year holidays.
While there are many other businesses that promote Botox and Dermal Filler treatments, the best results come from working with an experienced plastic surgeon that understands how the facial muscles work and comprehend how wrinkles are formed. An inexperienced provider may inject too much product or place it in the wrong area which would lead to serious medical consequences and also create a displeasing final outcome. Although the products are generally safe and temporary, bad results can be horrifying and potentially dangerous if used inappropriately.
