Four Signs of Aging in the Face Addressed with Injectables
Injectables have become increasingly popular as nonsurgical treatments to address various signs of facial aging. These minimally invasive procedures can provide natural-looking and long-lasting results, helping you achieve a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery.
The team at Brickell Cosmetic Center in Miami, FL is highly experienced in providing clients with anti-aging results using a selection of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers. We also treat clients near Brickell, Key Biscayne, and Coconut Grove, FL.
Here are four common signs of aging that can be addressed with cosmetic injections:
1. Wrinkles and fine lines
One of the most visible signs of aging is the development of facial wrinkles and fine lines. BOTOX®, a well-known injectable treatment, works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause these lines to form. This treatment is particularly effective for dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead lines, Crow's feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, can also be used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by adding volume beneath the skin. These fillers are typically used for static wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines, which are present even when your face is at rest.
2. Volume loss
As we age, our faces lose collagen and fat, leading to a decrease in both volume and skin elasticity. Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite can often help restore this lost volume in the cheeks, temples, and other areas of the face. By restoring volume, these fillers can create a more youthful and lifted appearance.
Sculptra®, a poly-L-lactic acid filler, is one example of a volume-enhancing injectable. It works by stimulating collagen production in the skin. While results aren't visible overnight, they can provide a gradual and long-lasting improvement in facial volume for those looking for a more subtle and natural enhancement.
3. Sagging skin
Sagging skin is another common sign of aging. It often results from a combination of volume loss and decreased skin elasticity in the face. Injectable treatments, such as wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers, can help address sagging skin by relaxing the facial muscles and providing structural support.
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, work by temporarily blocking the nerve signals to the targeted facial muscles, allowing the overlying skin to relax and smooth out. When strategically applied, these treatments can help lift and tighten sagging skin in areas such as the eyebrows and the corners of the mouth, creating a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers can also be used to provide structural support and stimulate collagen production, further helping to address sagging skin. By combining wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers, you can achieve a comprehensive nonsurgical facelift that addresses multiple signs of aging.
4. Hollow or sunken eyes
Hollow or sunken eyes can make you appear tired or older than you are. Injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based products, can be used to add volume and smooth out the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles and hollows. This treatment, known as a tear trough filler, should be performed by an experienced injector to ensure natural-looking results.
