Your skin is exposed to a wide range of elements, such as pollution, the sun, and free-radicals, which can speed the signs of aging. In addition, lost volume that naturally occurs with aging can make individuals look older than they really are, but anti-aging injectables are an ideal way to combat the signs of aging.
There’s a misconception that anti-aging injectables can make an individual look fake, but if you seek treatment from a qualified professional, they are a non-invasive way to restore a youthful appearance. There are even injectables, such as Botox, that can be used as a preventative way to treat the signs of aging.
What are the Most Popular Anti-aging Injectables?
When it comes to anti-aging injectables, there are many options to choose from that are safe and effective. Dr. Ehrmantraut can determine which type of injectable is appropriate for your skin type and desired goals.
Botox softens the appearance of wrinkles and is typically used on the upper face. It’s commonly used to treat crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and the lines between the eyes. The effects of Botox start to surface after about a week and can last around three to six months.
This type of injectable is made with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the body. It can help your body stimulate collagen production and adds volume to the face and lips.
Dysport is similar to Botox. Both are neurotoxins, but some individuals can see results in as little as three days after Dysport injections.
Restylane and Restylane Lyft
Restylane is used to add fullness to the face. Its base is hyaluronic acid, and it’s used to treat facial folds and wrinkles. This type of filler can be an effective way to treat nasolabial folds and add volume to the lips. Restylane Lyft has a formula similar to Restylane but is made to treat severe wrinkles, folds, and lines.
The only injectable that’s FDA-approved for treating fat under the neck and chin is Kybella. This filler breaks down the fat that creates a double chin. It’s made of deoxycholic acid and is an ideal way to combat unwanted fat under the chin that can make individuals appear heavier than they are.
