A decrease in volume or overemotion might cause wrinkles to appear. Wrinkles frequently develop near the top of the face, such as the forehead, frown lines, or crow’s feet. Typically, the temples, cheekbones, cheeks, nasolabial fold, and Marionette lines are areas where volume loss may occur. We might alternately advise a filler treatment or a Botulinum toxin therapy depending on the reason behind your wrinkles.
What causes wrinkle formation?
Wrinkles are mainly caused by genetics. Analyzing your parents’ faces may assist you in predicting where wrinkles will form in your future. Sun damage and smoking are the second most common causes of wrinkles after genetics. To delay the onset of wrinkles, it is essential to have a good skincare routine. Furthermore, adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes adequate sleep, a balanced diet, and minimal stress will help you achieve beautiful skin.
Which areas can be treated?
What can be done about wrinkles?
In aesthetic medicine, it’s crucial to distinguish between wrinkles caused by facial expressions and those caused by volume reduction. The former is treated with Botulinum toxin, while the latter is addressed using a hyaluronic acid filler. A PlexR procedure can handle wrinkles in areas such as the upper lip, neck, and around the eyelids. To improve the condition of your skin, it’s a good idea to take care of it, regardless of the type of wrinkles.
THE RESULTS ARE THERE
At Rejuvenate Clinic, we understand that our clients want natural-looking results that enhance their natural beauty, rather than making them look frozen or unnatural. That’s why we take a personalized approach to every Botox treatment, tailoring our injections to each client’s individual needs and desired results.
Our team of experienced and highly trained clinicians use only the highest quality Botox products and techniques to ensure that our clients get the best possible results. We understand that getting Botox injections can be intimidating, which is why we take the time to explain the process and answer any questions our clients may have before, during, and after their treatment.
Fillers have a wide range of applications, including but not limited to, softening wrinkles and facial lines, minimizing the appearance of small lines near the mouth, reducing under-eye circles and swelling, enhancing lip fullness, restoring facial shape, and increasing volume in the cheeks and cheekbones.
Injectable is a generic term for all products injected into the skin with the use of a needle. Botulinum toxin (‘Botox’) works very differently from fillers. Botox relaxes the muscles, thereby relaxing the skin. Filler adds volume to the skin and can be used to treat wrinkles, lips, cheeks and cheekbones.
To minimize the slight possibility of bruising, it is advisable to discontinue the use of blood-thinning medications like Ibuprofen, Ascal, and Naproxen for a few days prior to the treatment, if possible. It is essential to consult your physician before stopping any medication. Additionally, avoid taking fish oil and other supplements. Instead, you may consider taking Arnica, a homeopathic remedy, starting five days before the treatment with the maximum recommended dose mentioned on the package.
In fact, the outcome is quite the opposite. As the Botox treatment causes the treated area to remain inactive for several months, the skin has had sufficient time to heal and rejuvenate. Furthermore, the wrinkles that existed before the treatment have not been aggravated as the muscles were not used during this period. There is even a possibility that you may have developed a reduced tendency to use those muscles, which means that the muscles will contract less frequently in the future. For instance, if you had received treatment to reduce a frown, not frowning for an extended period may cause you to frown less in the future.
The substance stops working after 3 – 6 months. But the treatment does have a permanently improving effect on the treated area, in particular if you have had Botulinum toxin treatment for several years. This is because the area will not have moved for that long a time. The lesions in the skin will not have deepened and the skin has had the opportunity to heal. It’s a bit like stopping the hands of time. You may have broken the habit of using the muscle, so you’ll be frowning less than before. This has a lasting improvement on the skin in that area. Some studies reveal that for the reasons mentioned above, it’s possible after several years to stop using Botulinum toxin for a year.
If a patient is pregnant or suspects they may be pregnant, we refrain from performing any treatments. While there is no scientific proof that fillers may harm an unborn child, there is also no evidence that it is completely safe. Therefore, we do not want to take any risks that could potentially harm the mother or her child.
