Are you tired having wrinkles on your face? Over the years you build memories and enjoy many different experiences including spending time in the beautiful Scottsdale sun. Unfortunately, time also brings with it fine lines and wrinkles, along with other signs of aging. Fortunately, there are minimally invasive, non-surgical treatments available to you today, including cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers which work to correct the signs of aging, leaving you with smooth, youthful skin. You can now enjoy a new refreshed and vibrant appearance!
The natural aging process and sun damage are the two main factors that cause aging skin. The natural aging process usually brings with it fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, dull skin texture and color, and other skin flaws. Additionally, you may experience loss of volume resulting in a sagging, hollow appearance. Sun damage compounds the aging process, with ultraviolet rays penetrating the layers of the skin that fortify it and give it resilience. Our anti-aging cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers can turn back the clock giving you a rejuvenated, youthful appearance once again!
Botox®, by Allergan, is a cosmetic injectable that boasts an extremely high safety and efficacy profile. Dysport® by Medicis also comes with a proved safety profile and works the same way Botox does, with only a slightly different formulation of Botulinum Toxin A.
Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are injectable neuromodulators, which means that they work to temporarily alter nerve impulses of specific muscles, reducing or eliminating wrinkles induced by contraction. They are most commonly used to relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles such as frown line, forehead lines, and crows feet. They both work by blocking certain nerve impulses of injected muscles to paralyze muscle movements that cause wrinkles temporarily. By reducing the intensity and frequency contraction-induced wrinkles, Botox and Dysport prevent the formation of future deep lines, making them a preferred anti-aging solution.
Botox and Dysport have been clinically shown to be safe for all skin types and colors. During your treatment, each target muscle is injected using a fine needle for a few seconds with only minor discomfort. Some patients opt to use topical anesthesia, but it is not required. The number of injections administered depends on many factors, including the extent of the area you are treating. You will not need any downtime and may resume your normal activities immediately. You may experience some slight redness, bruising, or swelling at the site of the injection temporarily.
Here’s the best part:
The injections usually begin working two to three days after treatment, with full effects appearing in about two weeks to a month. You should see smooth, wrinkle-free skin with a more youthful appearance. The result of the treatment may last about four to six months, and then the muscle movement will begin to gradually return, with wrinkles and lines starting to appear again. They should not be as severe because the muscles are trained to relax more. For optimal results, you may need retreatment every four to six months, depending on how your skin responds.
There are subtle differences in the applications of Botox and Dysport. Consult with one of our medical staff at Contour You to determine the best treatment options for your unique needs.
With age, the fat surrounding the cheekbones begins to deteriorate, and the collagen that allows your skin to retain its shape may start to break down resulting in loss of volume and definition. Your skin may lose elasticity, and you may begin seeing lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm Voluma® XC and Restylane® Lyft can help you restore your youthful contours.
Our FDA-approved dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based and work to add volume to improve any age-related volume loss instantly. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the human body, functioning to bind water and hydrate tissue and increase the skin’s strength as elasticity. With the aging process, one begins to produce less hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers counteract aging through restoring volume and shape and gently lifting sagging skin to regain your youthful contours.
Dermal fillers are used to plump thinning lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, improve the appearance of scarring, reconstruct contour deformities in the face, and decrease the shadow of the lower lids. Dermal fillers have been shown to be safe in use for men and women.
Our dermal fillers contain an anesthetic called lidocaine to reduce discomfort. Most people report only a subtle pinch. You will have virtually no downtime and will be able to resume most activities immediately after your treatment. You may notice some temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site.
The Best Part:
Results will likely be visible immediately and may last up to two years. The dermal fillers will take some time to reach their full effect. To maintain your youthful appearance, you may need to receive retreatments.
