Wrinkles, sagging skin, thin lips, and weak cheekbones are among the most common aesthetic concerns for both men and women.
Countless products in stores claim to resolve these issues, but they often fail to live up to their promises. When it comes to addressing age-related changes or other cosmetic imperfections, work is required beneath the skin.
Aesthetic services like neuromodulators and dermal fillers work under the surface of the skin to combat everything from fine lines to soft bone structure. These cosmetic injectables can help transform your appearance in a simple outpatient treatment.
Cyrus Advanced Institute in El Paso, TX, offers various aesthetic services, including Botox injections and Juvéderm dermal fillers. Learn more about each of these treatments below.
Types of Aesthetic Services
There are numerous types of aesthetic services, each designed to address specific cosmetic concerns. Two of the most popular are Botox injections and Juvéderm dermal fillers.
Botox injectables are cosmetic treatments that aim to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother, more youthful complexion. Botox works through a process called neuromodulation. Also known as neurotoxins, neuromodulators work beneath the surface of the skin to target the main source of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial creasing.
While everyone knows that wrinkles and fine lines are a natural part of aging, many people do not understand what causes them. Fine lines, wrinkles, and creasing result from decreased elasticity and excessive facial movement.
As you age, your skin’s elasticity decreases due to a natural decline in collagen and elastin. Decreased elasticity makes the skin more vulnerable to wrinkles. With continuous facial expressions like smiling and frowning, your skin begins to form wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and other areas.
Neuromodulators like Botox work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by directly targeting the nerves and muscles within your facial skin.
When Botox is injected into specific areas of the face, it temporarily paralyzes the nerves, restricting facial expressions. The skin becomes tighter and firmer, while movement is limited. This reduces the appearance of existing fine lines while preventing more from developing.
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables because it provides many aesthetic benefits:
- Smoother, tighter skin
- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
- Diminished forehead creases
- Reduction in crow’s feet
- Decrease in nasolabial folds
- Wrinkle prevention
Some of the benefits of Botox include the ease of treatment. Botox is a non-invasive, outpatient procedure. In about 20 to 30 minutes, Botox injections can be administered. Patients are then able to return home to resume their normal activities.
Botox results develop in about two to three days and can last anywhere from three to six months, depending on the injection site.
Juvéderm Dermal Fillers
Another popular aesthetic service is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments that can address a wide variety of aesthetic concerns by increasing volume beneath the skin. There are many types of dermal fillers on the market, but some of the most effective ones are from Juvéderm.
The Juvéderm line of dermal fillers contains numerous injectables, each designed to add volume to a specific area of the face and produce a targeted cosmetic effect. All of the fillers in the Juvéderm line are formulated with some form of hyaluronic acid. This is essential, as hyaluronic acid provides various aesthetic benefits.
As you age, the natural decline in collagen and hyaluronic acid within your skin leads to volume loss. This volume loss creates the appearance of sagging, drooping skin, most notably around the cheeks and eyes.
Increasing hyaluronic acid in these areas can lead to a more youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid can also enhance certain facial features. When injected strategically beneath the skin, it can create a more sculpted structure or fuller lips.
Dermal Filler Benefits
Dermal fillers are a common aesthetic treatment that can provide a large array of benefits, such as the following:
- Plumper cheeks
- Fuller lips
- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoother skin
- Stronger jawline
- Contoured cheekbones
- Pronounced chin projection
- More youthful-looking eye area
- Increased collagen production
Fillers are also a simple cosmetic procedure. Depending on where your fillers are being injected, it can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to complete your treatment. Once finished, you will be able to return home and resume normal activity. There is no downtime or recovery involved.
Your fillers will begin to take effect within hours of treatment, and most patients see the final results a few days after their session. These results can last three to nine months, depending on the amount of filler used and where it was injected.
