The signs of getting older can show up as early as your 30s, and typically become more apparent in your 40s and 50s. There are many different factors that contribute to the signs of facial aging, and each person is affected differently by these influences. Environmental factors are a common thread in aging skin, such as excessive sun exposure, stress, and lifestyle choices like smoking. Genetics also play a role in how a person's facial skin is affected by the aging process.
With today's wide variety of noninvasive facial injections for wrinkles, both women and men can minimize the signs of aging and look younger. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Après Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Portland, OR are experts at guiding patients through all the options of facial rejuvenation with injectables. Are you wondering if you can look years younger without plastic surgery? Here is a look at facial injectables for wrinkles and what they can do for you.
Want to take years off your appearance?
Are you wondering how much younger can you look with injectables? Everyone ages at their own pace, but with a wide array of nonsurgical wrinkle removal options, injectables are an excellent option for those not ready for a surgical procedure. Soft tissue fillers like Juvéderm® or Restylane® and wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX® have taken over the cosmetic scene, and more patients are jumping on board to partake in this facial rejuvenation experience. Each facial injectable is designed to address a specific issue and can be highly effective at temporarily helping patients look and feel younger.
Cosmetic facial injectables are rising in popularity
A growing population of active, healthy women has spurred the popularity of skin rejuvenation techniques, particularly with facial injectables. Today, even men are making injectable appointments to touch up their appearance and look younger. With the development of skin rejuvenation injectables, the results are more subtle and don't require a surgical procedure such as a facelift. Face fillers, lip fillers, cheek fillers, and wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX are allowing patients the option of forgoing invasive surgery while enjoying the perks of a younger appearance, with no downtime needed.
How can I minimize the signs of aging on my face?
Here is a look at the ways facial injectables can turn back the clock on aging skin and enhance your appearance:
- Wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX or Dysport® can reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and deep creases. These neurotoxins are highly effective at giving individuals a smoother, more youthful appearance on their forehead, brow area, and the eye area. These injectables are also a way to prevent future lines or wrinkles from settling in, and can be done every 3 – 4 months.
- Injectable fillers like Restylane and Juvéderm are popular among Portland-area patients to restore facial volume and minimize lines or wrinkles. With age, our facial skin loses subdermal fat, or it migrates to the lower portion of the face, leaving the cheek area to look hollow or flat. Dermal fillers can enhance a patient's facial contour and add youthful plumpness back into the skin.
- Losing volume in the lips is also a part of the aging process. Plump, voluminous lips look more youthful and attractive. Juvéderm Volbella and Ultra XC are specifically designed to fill in vertical lines around the mouth and add volume to the lips.
- Kybella® helps reduce fat under the chin. As we age, the submental area under the chin can be affected by the aging process along with other factors like genetics or fluctuating weight, causing a "double chin." The board-certified plastic surgeons at Après Plastic Surgery & Med Spa are excited to offer this nonsurgical injectable to treat upper neck fat and give patients a slimmer-looking profile.
Facial injections are quite effective at temporarily smoothing out wrinkles and fighting the signs of aging. Most soft tissue fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body. Once injected, these fillers stimulate the body to increase collagen production. A combination of dermal fillers and BOTOX is a dynamic duo for looking younger, especially when performed by an experienced injector. During your one-on-one consultation at Après Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, your facial skin will be assessed to determine which injectables you need and in what areas. Our expert team will listen to your concerns and create a personalized plan to meet your aesthetic goals.
