No longer is surgery the only option for achieving a more youthful appearance, thanks to Botox and other cosmetic injectables. These minimally invasive treatment options are done on an in-office basis and require little to no downtime or recovery time.
Now, you can skip invasive procedures like facelifts and eyelid surgeries and still enjoy long-lasting results.
Types of Cosmetic Injectables
There are four effective, popular Botulinum toxin-based injectables that are FDA-approved for cosmetic purposes: Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.
At Premiere Aesthetics in Fort Myers, we recommend Botox and Dysport non-invasive cosmetic injectables to our patients for smoother, younger-looking skin.
Botox and Dysport have been developed to smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Both wrinkle treatments weaken the muscle that causes those frown lines to form, giving the skin a chance to “relax” and for wrinkles to diminish. Eventually, with continued treatment, those lines could disappear.
These injectables are also safe options that may provide several additional aesthetic benefits, some of which include:
- Revitalizing the skin
- Reducing wrinkles
- Erasing fine lines
- Improving the skin’s texture
- Lifting the eyebrows
In addition, these cosmetic injectables are also popular options for adding volume to the lips, contouring and sculpting the face, and diminishing the intensity of scars. All provide excellent results; however, many people wonder what the difference is between the treatments and which would be best for them.
Which Wrinkle Treatment Is Right for You?
If you’re interested in learning which option will be best for you, request an appointment with us to talk about your treatment goals. We’ll discuss how your particular dynamic wrinkles are caused in order to choose the best wrinkle treatment. We can, in the meantime, give you information about each wrinkle treatment option.
Sometimes a combination of products is used to achieve optimal results for our patients. Many patients have treatments at regular intervals between three to four times a year. As use continues, you might be able to decrease the number of visits per year to two to three.
Botox and Dysport
Many of the lines and wrinkles on our faces are caused by years of normal facial expressions. These are known as “dynamic wrinkles.” Wrinkle relaxers like injectables help many patients rejuvenate the face and enjoy a more youthful appearance. Both Botox and Dysport are botulinum toxin-based and are powerful cosmetic injectables.
These injectables can target several skin concerns in different areas of the face. The most popular reasons for treatment include:
- Lip lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Bunny lines
- Chin dimpling or wrinkles
Many people aren’t aware of another excellent use for these injectables: using them under the arms as an effective treatment for excessive sweating.
What About the Actual Procedure?
Treatment sessions often take as little as ten minutes, although that time could be longer, depending on how many areas you will be treating. A few tiny injections are all it takes to deliver a noticeable improvement in your skin within days.
You’ll come in for a consultation before your first treatment so that we can discuss your medical history and goals. Your treatment plan will be custom-tailored to meet your needs and aesthetic goals. On the day of your appointment, you should come in with a clean face to eliminate the risk of foreign substances interfering with treatment.
Usually, three to five injections are given during a session to best target your desired areas. Your treatment plan will be followed exactly, so you’ll know just what to expect. After your session, you won’t need to call off work or rest to recover. Many patients return to their normal activities right away.
Since no anesthetic is used, you can also drive yourself to and from your appointment.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect From Fort Myers Botox?
Results vary, depending on many things like the severity of your lines, the depth of your lines or wrinkles, and even the thickness of your skin. On average, patients can expect results to last anywhere from three to six months.
It’s recommended that patients stick to their regularly scheduled treatment appointments so that the muscles eventually achieve atrophy. With the offending muscles weakened and the skin being able to rest, over time, the skin will shed, and surface lines will diminish.
If you find that faint lines are returning at any point after your treatment is completed, you can attend regularly scheduled treatments at intervals that are more spread out.
It should also be noted that older people and those who have larger muscles in the treatment areas may require more treatments before desired results are achieved. Younger patients may use these cosmetic injectables to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.
It’s common for people to develop lines and wrinkles on the face like worry lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and more. Lotions, serums, and creams can only do so much; the most effective treatments are those like Botox and Dysport that go under the skin.
