How Botox & Dermal Fillers Can be Used to Combat Facial Aging -min

You may notice fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in your face as you age. Botox and dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic treatments in Kelowna designed to reduce visible signs of facial aging. These treatments offer fast and effective results with a variety of benefits for minimizing wrinkles, restoring facial volume, and giving you a youthful glow.

What is Botox?

Botox is a neuromodulator that is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Your skin loses elasticity and collagen as you age, allowing repetitive facial movements to imprint creases on your face. Botox relaxes the desired muscles, thus reducing and softening fine lines and wrinkles. Botox injections in Kelowna have been used for the past three decades to effectively treat wrinkles and muscle overactivity.

Benefits of Botox

1. Rejuvenates and Prevents Aging Skin

Botox is a noninvasive treatment that helps you achieve the desired smooth, youthful-looking skin. Botox injections minimize dynamic muscle moments to minimize wrinkling in targeted areas. Baby Botox is also a popular trend, where individuals receive preventative treatments of small amounts of the formulation to combat aging before wrinkles worsen.

2. Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Over time, the skin loses elasticity due to decreased collagen and elastin production. Botox can improve skin texture by minimizing the pulling and folding of the skin associated with active muscle contractions. Minimizing the severity and number of fine lines and wrinkles can create a more rested and youthful appearance.

3. Non-Invasive

This non-surgical procedure removes the need for incisions, sutures, and long recovery periods.

4. Minimal Recovery Time

Botox injections are performed meticulously and efficiently, and can be done during your midday lunch break without raising the eyebrows of coworkers. The short injection time and minimal downtime allow you to return to your daily activities right after stepping into our office.

5. Quick Results

Results can be seen after 2-3 days, with your full results seen after two weeks.

6. Long Term Results

Results from Botox last for an extended time, making upkeep easy to maintain. Results from Botox last between three and four months. The injection wears off as the body metabolizes the neuromodulator. Over time, the wrinkles may reappear, making maintenance appointments essential to maintain your desired results.

What Areas Can Botox Treat?

Botox in Kelowna can address the crow’s feet, frown lines, smile lines, and forehead creases, to name a few. Among its anti-wrinkling benefits, Botox can also treat bruxism, hyperhidrosis, overactive bladder, muscle twitching, and muscle pain. This multipurpose treatment uses its advanced muscle-relaxing technology to relieve various medical and cosmetic concerns.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an injectable hyaluronic acid treatment designed to restore deflated and asymmetrical areas, support structure, contour and fill deep set lines, folds, and wrinkles.

Benefits of Facial Filler

1. Restore Lost Volume

You lose bone structure, facial fat and collagen when you age, making the face appear sunken and hollow. Dermal fillers in Kelowna can restore the cheeks, under eyes, temples, jawline, chin and lips to create a more structured and youthful appearance.

2. Smooths Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Dermal fillers are intended to fill in lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas where it is lacking. Fillers can reverse signs of aging and help individuals look younger for extended periods of time. Dermal fillers are commonly injected into the nasolabial folds and marionette lines to give you a more refreshed and smooth appearance.

3. Customizable Treatment

Dermal fillers come in various formulations and consistencies, allowing you to receive a personalized approach that addresses your specific needs with the filler that fits you best.

4. Enhance The Lips

Dermal fillers are also commonly used to treat the lips. The lips’ shape, size, and symmetry can be addressed with dermal lip injections. Dermal injections can correct genetically thin or small lips or lips that have shrunk due to aging.

5. Create Desired Facial Contours

As the face ages, areas can lose the definition they once had. Dermal fillers can be injected to contour and define specific areas, such as the cheeks, jawline and chin, giving you a more sculpted and structured profile.

6. Stimulate Collagen Production

Collagen production naturally decreases as you age, contributing to saggy skin with decreased skin tone and texture. Certain dermal fillers stimulate collagen production, giving your skin more structure, strength, elasticity and firmness. This can help improve overall skin quality and elasticity, minimizing aging skin in the long run.

7. Quick Results

Dermal filler injection appointments are short and require no downtime. Your appointment will take 30-60 minutes, with early results seen within 15 minutes.

8. Long-lasting Results

Dermal fillers can last anywhere between twelve to twenty-four months, depending on the type of filler used and your metabolism.

Ideal Candidates for Botox and Dermal Fillers

Both Botox and dermal fillers treatments are ideal for individuals looking for a natural, noninvasive treatment option. Candidates should be in overall good health.

Patients commonly start receiving Botox and injectables in the mid 20s to early 30s. Injectables offer natural looking results and require consistent treatment to ensure their effectiveness.

Why Are Botox and Dermal Fillers Great Options?

Botox and dermal fillers can be excellent options that yield some of the most effective aesthetic results compared to surgical treatments. Chemical peels and laser treatments in Kelowna can help to rejuvenate the skin but do not offer the same anti-wrinkle and volume-boosting effects. Surgeries can be more invasive and with increased risks and complications than you desire. Botox and dermal fillers are long-lasting, non-invasive aesthetic options that leave you looking youthful and feeling confident.

Delay Aging with Injectables

Customized Botox and dermal filler treatments at Cerulean Medical Institute take into consideration your age, overall health, skin thickness, depth of wrinkles and volume loss. During prejuvenation treatments, smaller doses are injected to combat signs of aging from emerging on the skin as they traditionally would. During rejuvenation treatments, higher doses of Botox decreases the age and textured look of the skin caused by fine lines and wrinkles, while dermal injectables restore volume loss, enhance contours and soften deeply set skin folds and wrinkles.
