Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As we grow older, our muscle tone increases and collagen decreases, leading to the formation of wrinkles. One common method to address this issue is by using minimally invasive treatments designed to refresh the appearance of the face. These treatments temporarily smooth wrinkles by targeting facial muscles and reducing muscle tone.
The procedure lasts between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of injection sites. A fine needle is used to target specific muscles, causing minimal discomfort and no downtime. The treatment typically lasts between 3 to 6 months, with full results achieved within 7 to 14 days after the procedure. This treatment is often the primary step for a more youthful appearance, while deeper wrinkles may also require additional solutions.
Our preferred dermal filler is a hyaluronic acid-based product, which closely resembles substances found in the lowest layer of your skin. Hyaluronic acid, naturally produced by the body, helps retain water where the gel is injected. The gel acts as a soft buffer, lifting the skin and reducing wrinkles, while the acid prevents the gel from evaporating. This popular filler is widely used in the U.S., with noticeable results often achieved immediately after the procedure. It is commonly used to address stubborn wrinkles, augment or plump lips, nose, jaw, and other facial areas. The dermal filler procedure takes anywhere between 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the area, with results lasting from 6 months to 1 year.
