Demystifying Injectables: Erase Years

By  |  0 Comments

It’s just a fact of life. As we age, lines and wrinkles appear on our face and deepen over time. No matter how we care for ourselves, or how genetically gifted we may be, it will happen to all of us in time. Some are happy to allow time to take its course, while others of us want to hold on to our youth for as long as we can. If you’re in the latter group, you may be on the fence about getting those lines filled. In the end, it’s your face and your choice.

Injectable Fillers

As we age, the effects of sun, weather, gravity, fat redistribution, thinning skin, bone reabsorption and the loss of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) cause us to lose volume and elasticity in our skin. Dermal fillers replace lost hyaluronic acid, allowing our skin to heal and replenish itself by once again retaining youthful quantities of sub-dermal water. This fills in lost volume, plumping sags and smoothing wrinkles.

Botox and Dysport

The fine lines and wrinkles on our faces, around our eyes and mouth and on our forehead that are often called frown lines or crow’s feet are the result of a lifetime of smiling, laughing, crying . . . living. Botox and Dysport work by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles where the injection occurs. The injected muscle is less able to contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.

5 Of The Most Popular Treatment Areas:

Forehead Lines

The lines between our eyebrows don’t just reveal our age, they can make us look angry or worried. Smoothing these lines will make your expression calmer and more welcoming, as well as erase years from your appearance.

Under Eye Bags 

Loss of volume under our eyes form as we age, causing sagging and wrinkles. No amount of makeup can cover that ‘sunken eyes’ appearance that makes us look chronically tired. Injectable fillers will not only add lost volume, but will also smooth the sagging and wrinkles.

Cheek Volume

As we age, we lose muscle, fat and bone under our skin. Replacing the lost volume will not only plump and smooth your cheeks but will improve the contours of your face. There are few treatments where the age-defying effects are as dramatic. 

Lip Filler

While our lips do thin as we age due to the loss of underlying muscle and fat, thin lips can also be genetic. With fine control over the amount of volume added, you can have the lips you wish you’d been born with, or the lips you were born with but lost as you aged. 

Wrinkles Around the Mouth

Called lipstick lines (wrinkles around our lips), marionette lines (lines running from the corners of our mouth to our chin) and nasolabial folds (lines from our nose to the corners of our mouth), wrinkles around our mouth are very common as we age. Treatment to these areas will go a long way toward erasing years from your face.

Does It Hurt?

We know that the thought of being injected multiple times causes anxiety for a lot of patients, but most report that it wasn’t nearly as bad as they anticipated. While we can’t promise a painless procedure, all the fillers we use at MagnifaSkin Medspa contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, the needles we use are tiny and the amounts injected into each area quite small.

Facial Injectables are the go-to option for many of us, providing a minimally invasive, affordable procedure that can erase years, or even decades, from our appearance.
