In efforts to decrease wrinkles and give the face a younger appearance, neurotoxins, such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, can be injected into muscles of the face. These neurotoxins last anywhere from 2-3 months, and are considered a minimally invasive procedure — approved since 2002 for cosmetic use.
Fillers (Juvaderm, Restylane, Radiesse) are made from hyaluronic acid and are used to decrease the deeper lines of aging. Fillers are used for facial contouring, to enhance lips, cheek bones, temples and more. Depending on the location applied, and the type of filler used, fillers can last for up to 2 years, and can even stimulate your body’s natural collagen production.
Natural fillers, taken from your own fat, can be used as well. This procedure is slightly more invasive, but is all natural and longer lasting than hyaluronic acid fillers. Using your body’s own fat cells as filler additionally provides the benefit of enhancing collagen formation in your face to further decrease signs of aging.
Platelet Rich Plasma, by itself, or in combination with fat cells, used via injection or microneedling helps to naturally boost collagen production and decrease signs of aging.
