Everything you do in life ages your skin. Sunshine. Caffeine. Stress. Acne. All of it contributes to your skin looking less than shiny and new. No matter what the challenge – from droopy sagging skin to acne scars that make you want to hide your face – cosmetic injectables can make a visible and delightful difference without a lot of downtime or recovery required.
While the benefits may continue to become more noticeable over a few weeks, you will experience immediate results from most cosmetic injectables. Whether you choose a dermal filler or Botox®, you will leave our office looking – and feeling – younger.
You Can Do It on Your Lunch Break
It only takes 15-45 minutes to receive treatment, so it is something you could conceivably do on your lunch break or on your way to or from work. If you have an important event to attend (even virtually) you can ensure you look your best by stopping by for a treatment beforehand.
Let the Wrinkles and Scars Disappear
As you age, your skin becomes less elastic. Wrinkles develop in laugh lines and around the mouth and nose. The stress lines on your forehead become permanent, as does the crease between your eyebrows. Minimizing wrinkles and furrows and erasing fine lines can easily be accomplished using a cosmetic injectable. Injectables can also help minimize the appearance of scars, including leftover scars from adolescent acne. If you spend extra time every morning applying makeup to hide your scars, this can be life changing, boosting your confidence, and making you feel better about your appearance.
Many of the cosmetic injectables we use introduce collagen or stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is the substance that helps skin heal itself, remain youthful and firm, and gives it the smooth appearance. Using dermal fillers can help stimulate collagen, which will promote healthier skin.
