Whether you are interested in trying out dermal fillers or skin smoothers, we can help you find the right solution for the wrinkles you want to eliminate in no time! Let’s take a look at some of the most popular methods we use at Allura to do just that!
Why do wrinkles appear?
Just as you experience changes in your hormones when you are a teenager, you also go through a similar experience when you are about to or have gone through menopause. The levels of hormones like estrogen and progesterone in your body at this time can likely wreak havoc on your skin. Lower levels of hormones leads to the loss of collagen, support of fatty tissue and the loss of bone around the mouth. This causes you to see much more noticeable lines around the mouth as the combination of losing collagen, fat and bone will lead to you losing the curvature that extends from your nose to the top of your lip.
One of our most popular dermal fillers is Juvederm. This smooth gel is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid works to increase the volume in the skin. It also works to provide hydration and nutrients to your skin that it needs to look healthy and younger. There are two different versions of this product and choosing will be up to you. When you stop into our skin center, we can explain the difference between the two to you and help you decide which one will benefit you more.
Restylane is very similar to Juvederm in that is also a non-allergenic, gel form of hyaluronic acid. Restylane, however, is normally suggested for people who have much more severe and deep wrinkles. Results of this procedure should last around six months, after which another treatment may be needed to maintain results.
You have undoubtedly heard about Botox before. However, if you are just now getting to the point where you are considering using dermal fillers, you may be looking for more information on this very popular procedure. Plain and simple, Botox is the wrinkle remover that all others strive to be. Both men and women have found desirable results in this injectable product as it reduces the visibility of lines and wrinkles quickly and effectively. The best places on your face to have Botox injected are frown lines between the brows, around your eyes to eliminate crow’s feet and around the mouth to get rid of fine lines from smiling.
