Are you tired of your appearance making you seem older than you feel? If so, our team at Cyrus Advanced Institute in El Paso, TX, can help. Our cosmetic specialists are highly trained in applying fillers and injectables to create and maintain a youthful appearance. It’s time to look in the mirror and be delighted with your reflection.
What Are Fillers and Injectables?
Fillers and injectables are a phenomenal way to regain the plump, dewy skin of your youth without undergoing extensive surgeries or procedures. When performed by a skilled technician, these treatments provide clients with results they never dreamed possible. With little to no side effects and minimal downtime following fillers’ treatment, it’s no wonder these anti-aging methods are wildly popular.
We expect our skin’s texture, elasticity, and density to change as we age. Lifestyle choices, genetics, and medical conditions all play a part in the specific way your skin will age, but a significant factor that determines how your skin will age is the amount of collagen present in your body.
Your skin is composed of collagen, a protein that gives our skin and other parts of our body its shape. As you age, there is less collagen in your body, which means there is less volume. Less volume means your skin will sag, wrinkle, and begin to feel thin. Some creams and serums claim to help these signs of aging, but the best way to counteract them is with fillers or injectables.
How They Work
There are multiple types of treatments, and a consultation with one of our professionals is the best way to determine which is right for you. One type is a neuromodulator, which stops specific neurotransmitters from reaching the muscle they are trying to stimulate. Neurotransmitters instruct your muscles to move and tighten; when they are halted, your muscles stay relaxed. Neuromodulator injections work to create a smoother, dewy, and more youthful look.
Another option is a dermal filler, which lies under the surface of your skin to increase the volume of the targeted area. This treatment provides your face with a fullness that eliminates and minimizes wrinkles. It also eradicates sagging by helping to restore volume to the places where the signs of aging are most prominent.
What Are They Used for?
These treatments are excellent for various areas of the face and body. As aging is a unique process, the client’s goals and features will determine what parts of the face and body should be treated to experience the best results.
Cheeks are commonly addressed, as many clients notice sagging and wrinkling cheeks due to a loss of volume in the skin. By refilling the cheeks, volume is restored, and the client’s face regains the vibrancy they enjoyed in their youth.
Eyelids are an area that frequently requires treatment. Eyelid skin is thin and tends to droop with age, causing the individual to appear tired and lethargic, even if they feel the exact opposite! Injectables can help open up the eye area and provide a more alert appearance.
Lips frequently deflate and lose their plumpness with age and often show fine lines. Fillers and injectables can provide a cure for this usual symptom of aging. Additionally, injectables can give a perfectly plump pout for those of all ages who have thinner lips.
These treatments aren’t limited to facial features. For example, hands are a common source of concern for our clients and typically show signs of aging even before the face. Injectables smooth out the lumps and bumps that can give away a client’s age, and the results leave them feeling confident and attractive.
Types of Treatments
Our clinic offers a range of treatments to help you reach your ideal aesthetic. Your individual goals will determine the best course of action to take and which products we will recommend and administer.
This product is used to restore fullness to where age has created hollow or sunken places on the face. Made with hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in the human body, Juvederm helps your body maintain moisture and plumpness in the area where it is injected. We frequently use Juvederm around the eyes, lips, chin, cheekbones, and jawline.
Results will be visible immediately following injection and will be long-lasting for most individuals. Anywhere from six months to two years is considered a standard length of time for the results of this treatment to last. Additionally, if you choose to receive minor follow-up treatments, your skin will remain supple and vibrant.
One of the most widely used injectables, Botox is suitable for minimizing the visibility of various wrinkles in the facial region. Originating from a bacterium named Clostridium Botulinum, Botox works by stopping acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter.
Since the neurotransmitter cannot reach the muscle, the muscle does not tighten or contract, resulting in a relaxed, soft appearance. Botox is used to treat wrinkles on the forehead, near the eyes, and wrinkles near the mouth.
Within three to five days of your treatment, results will typically be visible for most patients. However, the best results will be apparent several weeks after the initial injection; this allows time for muscles to relax and wrinkles to smooth.
Botox provides impressive results, but the treatment will need to be repeated every three to six months to maintain a youthful, wrinkle-free face. Even so, with its numerous uses besides simply aesthetic, such as improving TMJ pain, minimizing sweating, and helping with migraines, Botox is definitely an injectable worth considering.
