Lines and wrinkles may be a natural part of the aging process, but they do not have to be something that you live with forever. Today, there are many good options in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area for smoothing away or filling in these lines and wrinkles without the need for an extensive operation, such as a facelift. In fact, when you address these concerns early and regularly, you may be able to eliminate your need for more invasive procedures altogether. The two most common treatments for lines and wrinkles on the face are BOTOX® and fillers. These two treatments are used for two very different conditions, and we will help you choose which option is right for you at a consultation with one of our practitioners.
BOTOX® is the favored option for expression lines, which are much finer than static wrinkles. Expression lines easily smooth away from your face when your face is at rest but appear again when you wrinkle your forehead, frown, smile or grimace. The most common places for BOTOX® injections are on the forehead, at the outer edges of the eyes and between the eyes. However, we can also use BOTOX® elsewhere on the face to create beautiful results.
BOTOX® is a temporary treatment that lasts for multiple months for most people in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area. To keep up your results, you will need to return regularly for continued injections. However, a single treatment session is quick and convenient.
On the other hand, fillers are used to treat static wrinkles. These fillers are generally made with a gel-like substance containing hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body. When injected into the wrinkled area, the gel will fill in the wrinkle. Over time, the hyaluronic acid will continue to pull moisture from your body into the area to fill in the area even more.
Dermal fillers come in many brands and varieties depending on your needs. Because they can be difficult to choose between, we will help you know which option is right for you. We can also help you determine if a combination treatment with BOTOX® and fillers is the best way to go in your case.
These days, you have plenty of options when it comes to treating your unwanted lines and wrinkles. Set up an appointment at Forever Young Medpsa to learn more information about BOTOX® and fillers, as well as our other services. Contact us today for a consultation in Cooper City, Florida.
