How Do Fine Lines and Wrinkles Affect My Appearance?
The development of lines and wrinkles is a natural part of aging, but it can make you look older than you feel.
Your skin contains elastin and collagen, two proteins that give it volume and elasticity. As you grow older, your body stops making as much elastin and collagen. Your skin gets thinner and loses volume. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to form around your nose, mouth, and eyes.
Cosmetic injectables like Botox, Juvéderm, and Kybella fight the signs of aging and refine your look to boost your self-esteem and help you smile more confidently.
What Facial Aesthetic Services Are Right For Me?
You can expect a personalized experience from start to finish at Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta. The cosmetic treatment that’s the best option for you depends on your aesthetic concerns and your goals for treatment:
BOTOX could be right for you if you’re frustrated with the look of lines and wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes. It’s FDA-approved to temporarily minimize moderate to severe crow’s feet and forehead lines, including frown lines.
Benefits of Botox
Botox is easily one of the best and easiest ways to enhance your natural beauty. The injections are most known to seamlessly reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines, but they can do a lot more. Many people don’t know this, but Botox can also be used to treat conditions like neck spasms, excessive sweating, and an overactive bladder, and it can also help prevent chronic migraines and other chronic health issues.
If you suffer from TMJ or other forms of muscle pain, getting Botox injections can help relax these muscles. Because it relaxes the muscles, it reduces the pain for about 3 months or so.
Choosing to get Botox could help improve your appearance quickly due to its nearly immediate results. When you get Botox injections you could see results within three to four days afterward. Typically, it will last for around 3 - 6 months.
How Often Should You Get Botox?
It is important to remember that while Botox can be amazing, it is only a temporary solution. It will not stop the process of aging. The ideal frequency for getting Botox injections is usually once every four months but depending on how your body reacts to the injections, you may need them more or less frequently. For people in their twenties who are using Botox as a preventative treatment, getting treatments every 12 weeks is most common. Although the average wait time for most people is 12-16 weeks.
However, research has shown that results last with less frequent injections after two years of treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Botox?
Most professionals suggest that the ideal candidates for Botox are 18 years old or older, in good health, and are not pregnant or nursing. If you are interested in getting Botox, you may be a good candidate for Botox if:
- You have anywhere from only a few wrinkles to severe facial wrinkles and if new lines or the existing lines worsen when you use your facial expressions.
- Your wrinkles are located around or between the eyes, on the forehead, around the neck, or anywhere that can be easily accessible to do the Botox injection.
- You are in good health.
- You have realistic expectations for what the results will be.
- If you are not allergic to eggs, since the same protein that is found in eggs is also in Botox.
- If you do not have any neuromuscular conditions.
Botox smooths wrinkles in the treatment area for up to six months. It works by temporarily reducing muscle activity that causes wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.
Juvéderm fillers treat fine lines and wrinkles by replacing volume lost due to age. The Juvéderm collection can transform your look by plumping your lips and cheeks or smoothing wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Benefits of Juvéderm
Juvéderm is currently the only dermal filler that is approved by the FDA to last up to one year. Juvéderm also has high levels of hyaluronic acid. Due to the high levels, it has long-lasting results.
Hyaluronic acid naturally works to add moisture to the skin but as we get older, the amount we have in our body decreases. This can cause our skin to become dehydrated and appear dry and limp. Since Juvéderm has such high levels, it can make the skin healthier just by being in the body. Another benefit is that Juvéderm is made up of a non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Since this is the same type of acid found in the human body, it eliminates potential allergic reactions. This makes it more accessible to everyone and gets rid of having to do an allergy scratch-test beforehand.
Juvéderm is highly recommended due to its consistent results. Patients treated with Juvéderm tend to enjoy their natural-looking and longer-lasting results.
How Often Should You Get Juvéderm?
For Juvéderm, there is no need to receive multiple treatments within a year like some other treatments. It is recommended that a patient schedules an appointment every one to two years to achieve their ideal results. Since Juvéderm often lasts only about 18 months, typically a year after the first injection is the best time to schedule another treatment. When you get your injections done the correct way, you can seamlessly maintain your ideal look instead of letting the effects wear off.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm?
Like most treatments, the ideal candidate is healthy, at least 22 years old or older, and has noticeable facial lines and wrinkles. It is also great for anyone looking for a simple, non-invasive treatment to help give their skin a lift. Although this treatment is catered to healthy adults who are concerned about moderate-to-severe aesthetic changes in the midface, there are only a few exceptions for the lower face, like eliminating sagging skin around the jawline. You should not partake in this treatment if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, nursing, allergic to lidocaine, or have certain medical conditions, like heart disease or diabetes.
The results you achieve with Juvéderm treatment can last between one to two years.
Kybella is an FDA- approved cosmetic treatment that tackles stubborn fat below your chin, known as submental fullness or double chin. If you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan, but you’re frustrated with a double chin, Kybella can help. Kybella is a permanent solution that removes the excess fat underneath the chin using the active ingredient synthetic deoxycholic acid.
Benefits of Kybella
There are many amazing benefits to looking to Kybella when removing excess chin fat, which includes:
- You’ll have noticeable results, and your jawline will be more defined, which will give you back a youthful, confident appearance.
- Your results will be permanent and maintenance injections won’t be necessary.
- It is minimally invasive. No surgery is needed.
- You will have the results quickly and after just one 60-minute treatment. Patients can fit treatments into a busy daily schedule.
- It is almost pain-free since a topical anesthetic is used to help alleviate the pain.
- Due to its formula, most patients usually have little to no negative side effects.
- It is not as expensive as an invasive treatment option like liposuction,
- You will experience a huge boost in confidence as you watch your stubborn chin fat disappear.
How Often Should You Get Kybella?
Although four treatments is the maximum amount for Kybella, each treatment has multiple sessions that are needed. It is recommended that a patient have one injection every eight weeks over a six-month time frame while making sure to wait one and a half months between each session. It is common that patients will have 3-4 treatments about 6-8 weeks apart before getting the best results. Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, which helps your body break down and absorb fat cells. With Kybella, you can enjoy your new look permanently.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella?
A good candidate for Kybella would be adults over the age of 21 who are healthy and who are confirmed to not be allergic to the active ingredients in the formula by the doctor. Anyone who is generally not happy with the appearance of excess under chin fat can benefit from this treatment.
You may want to stay away from this treatment if you have an infection, are pregnant, or have a bleeding disorder, or if you have scarring or stretched, excess skin under your chin.
