It’s an inevitable fact that over the course of your life your skin starts to develop fine lines and wrinkles, and often deeper creases such as frown lines between the eyes. The age at which you might develop lines and wrinkles varies due to factors like genetics, how much time you spend in the sun, and whether you smoke.
Taking good care of your skin and avoiding tobacco smoke can keep your skin looking youthful, but at some point, lines are bound to develop. When this happens, injectable treatments like Botox and fillers provide convenient, effective answers to reduce deep brow lines and wrinkles.
Botox is the original injectable treatment for lines between the eyes, and has been in use for over 30 years. Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport all use a substance derived from the botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring chemical that causes muscular paralysis.
In its refined form, the botulinum blocks chemical signals that cause the muscles to contract. As a result, your facial muscles relax, softening the appearance of wrinkles. At Refined Image, Dr. Bickerton uses Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport.
Dermal fillers are an alternative way of addressing wrinkles and frown lines. Injectable treatments using dermal fillers plump up the skin where you have wrinkles or hollows, smoothing out your skin. The most common component of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body and is known for it’s high affinity for water which helps “plump up” the skin. Fillers can not only plump up wrinkles, but also lift and plump up:
At Refined Image, Dr. Bickerton uses many different dermal fillers, including Juvaderm, Radiesse, and Restylane, to help you achieve your desired goals.
Injectable treatments such as Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and dermal fillers are safe when used by qualified professionals like Dr. Bickerton.
The effects last vary according to the treatment you receive and your skin type, but typically, one Botox session can last around four months. To keep up the rejuvenating effect of injectable treatments, Dr. Bickerton may advise you to come in for touch-ups on a regular basis.
