Which Injectable Is Best For Your Skin?
Injectable treatments have become a very popular alternative to more permanent types of procedures, such as facelift or neck lifts. One of the great benefits of injectable treatments are that they can rejuvenate and restore youthful radiance to your skin without the downtime often associated with more invasive procedures.
At Etré Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center, we offer the best injectable treatments to keep your skin looking great. Here is a guide to help determine which one might be the best for you.
BOTOX® is one of the most popular injectable treatments available—and for good reason. It is highly effective at reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face in key problem areas, including around the forehead, mouth, and eyes. BOTOX® works by temporarily relaxing the facial expression muscles that cause wrinkles over time. When the muscles cannot contract, the appearance of existing wrinkles and lines will soften, and additional wrinkles will not form.
Voluma is a type of dermal filler used to add volume back to the skin, primarily in the cheeks and the mid-face. It is made up of hyaluronic acid, the naturally occurring material responsible for keeping your skin smooth, resilient, and hydrated. Voluma has been proven to last up to two years with little to no downtime.
Restylane® is another type of dermal filler that is used to restore volume to the face and smooth out wrinkles. The main component of Restylane® is also hyaluronic acid, but what makes Restylane® different is that it is formulated with lidocaine to ensure that the facial injections are painless. It is an excellent choice for those who want to restore their naturally youthful contours and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
Radiesse® is a third type of dermal filler we offer that helps promote collagen in the body. What makes Radiesse® such an effective treatment for attaining youthful skin is that, unlike direct collagen injections, the results of Radiesse® can last up to a year. However, results may vary depending on the patient. Radiesse® is also mixed with a numbing agent, which means that injections are virtually painless, and treatment can be performed in a matter of minutes.
Also made of hyaluronic acid, Belotero has the ability to essentially harness the body’s own skin-plumping properties. When injected, this gel-like substance starts to bind with the water in your skin and softly fills in lines and wrinkles, replenishes volume in hollowed areas, and restores a healthy, supple appearance to the skin.
