When it comes to antiaging treatments and procedures, there’s no shortage of options out there to choose from. In fact, in today’s day and age, it’s never been easier to seek out and receive treatment for the signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines and sagging facial skin.
However, unlike procedures in decades past, current treatment options for the facial skin can be quick and painless (and surprisingly affordable).
Keep reading to learn more about injectable treatments that may be just what you’re looking for.
What’s your facial concern?
Men and women alike can begin to notice signs of aging as early as their late 20s and early 30s. This can include skin that appears to be loose or sag, those pesky “number elevens” in between the eyebrows an even an abundance of expression lines.
Why? As we age, we lose about a teaspoon of collagen per year after the age of 30. This is concerning because collagen is the protein in the skin that keeps it looking tight, taut and youthful. However, Botox and dermal filler are viable solutions to temporarily (and over time) give you a more refreshed appearance by filling in those lines and offering more volume to the face.
In fact, according to the 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, Botox tops the list of minimally-invasive procedures at a whopping 7.2 million performed last year. Dermal fillers also made the list, with over 2 million treatments done in 2017.
If you have lines and wrinkles that you’d like to smooth out or if you’d like to get fill in sunken cheeks or hollow areas of the face, then these treatments may be right for you. As always, talk to your board-certified plastic surgeon to best learn which options will help you safely reach your cosmetic goals.
The many benefits of injectables
There’s a reason these FDA-approved treatments are so popular — Botox and dermal fillers are quick and virtually pain-free, not to mention results are nearly immediate with full results appearing in about one to two weeks.
What’s even better is there’s no downtime associated with either treatment other than possible minor bruising and/or swelling. This is a far cry from the down time and recovery associated with the highly-invasive face lift, which can cost you upwards of $11,000 (and doesn’t even last a lifetime).
These treatments can be done in anywhere from mere minutes to about an hour, depending on your unique goals and concerns. What’s even better is that they are very affordable and last months. Most patients find these treatments nearly pain-free and don’t usually even require the use of a topical numbing agent. And, you can return to your normal daily activities right afterward.
