Finding the Right Combination of Cosmetic Injectables For Your Face

As you age, several changes occur beneath your skin that are responsible for fine lines and loss of tone. And since there isn’t one single mechanism that leads to skin aging, there isn’t a single solution to all of your skin concerns, either. 

The good news is that modern medicine has made it possible to combine several types of injectables and tackle multiple skin issues at the same time.

Our expert at Ageless Aesthetics, Dr. Patrick Yassini, uses a combination of Botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX®)  and dermal fillers to both reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fight the loss of elasticity in the skin. 

Stick with us to learn more about what types of injectables are used for mature skin and how these can be combined for the best results.

Botox

Millions of Americans choose Botox to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines without going under the knife.

Botox allows your skin to smooth out by paralyzing the muscles under your skin and stopping the folding of your skin, which creates the lines in the first place. 

The results from the injectables last anywhere between three and six months, so if you change your mind after using Botox and want less or more of it, after a few months, you can ask Dr. Yassini to change the dosage.

Dermal Fillers

Aging isn’t all about wrinkles and fine lines. A youthful appearance also comes with plump and taut skin. Here’s where dermal fillers come in handy. 

If Botox can take care of fine lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers act as a replacement for the lost subcutaneous fat that gives your skin tone and shape. 

By filling out the lost volume, you can smooth out your lines and wrinkles, get rid of the sunken look in your cheeks, plump up your lips, and fill in your acne scars.

Dermal fillers last anywhere between six and twelve months, and can be done on an outpatient basis.

One of the main causes of skin aging is diminished collagen production. Collagen is the connective fiber that maintains your skin’s tone and elasticity. 

With less collagen, the facial movements you make leave lines on your skin, as there’s not enough collagen to make your skin snap back to its initial position. Less collagen also means that the fat beneath your skin tends to drift downward and diminish, leaving your skin looking sunken and hollow. 

Fortunately, you can tackle all of these facial changes with a combination of injectables that both give plumpness to your skin and prevent wrinkles by paralyzing the small muscles that create facial movements.
