Wrinkle Reducers - Botox® & Dysport®
Neuromodulators are used to diminish wrinkles and are most commonly known as Botox® or Dysport®. These products are made up of natural purified proteins. During treatment, small amounts of the Neurotoxin are injected into the underlying muscle – resulting in the muscle relaxing which then helps to diminish the persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time. Neuromodulators are also effective in preventing new wrinkles from developing and limiting existing wrinkles from becoming more severe. The effects typically will last anywhere from 3 to 4 months.
Restore Volume. Balance. Plump. Hydrate.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and lacks hydration as our body’s natural Hyaluronic acid content diminishes and slows production. This results in loss of facial volume and structure. With that comes facial sagging and wrinkles. Our skilled providers utilize Restylane® and Juvederm® collection of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers. These fillers work to restore volume, enhance and provide facial symmetry, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and plump areas.
Filler works to fill or plump empty areas lacking Hyaluronic Acid (hence, the term filler) Injectable treatments are fast and relatively painless, requiring little to almost zero recovery time. Dermal Fillers work to rejuvenate signs of aging by restoring volume loss and lifting sagging areas – making injectable treatment options optimal for reducing signs of aging. Dermal Fillers also biologically stimulate your body to increase collagen and elastin production. This replenishes volume and smooths facial wrinkles for a more youthful, natural appearance.
When you come in for Dermal Filler at Westlake Aesthetics & Wellness, our team will discuss the treatment prior with you and form a treatment plan to best achieve your desired results. Prior to injection: A topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure the injections are as comfortable as possible for you. Hyaluronic Acid filler is then carefully injected into the mid-to-deep dermis using an ultra-fine needle to very specific, targeted areas underneath the skin. This is a non-surgical treatment and is typically completed during one office visit.
Downtime is typically minimal. Minor bruising and swelling post-filler injection is normal and will subside.
Results are immediate after being treated, however we ask patients to allow two weeks for full assessment of the final treatment outcome.
Dermal Fillers can last anywhere from about 9 months to 1 year, sometimes even longer. There are various factors that play a role in how long dermal fillers will last such as:
- What areas were treated
- What specific type of filler was used
- How much dermal filler was used
- Everyone is different! The rate at which your body metabolizes the product also plays a key role.
Keep in mind that in order to maintain your desired results periodic maintenance treatments will be necessary
Filler is most commonly used to smooth lines, add volume to plump the lips, define the jawline and chin, to lift and contour the cheeks. The most common treatment areas are:
- “Smile lines” Nasolabial folds + Marionette lines
- “Smokers lines” (vertical creases around/above the lips)
- Nose (Balance and hide dorsal bumps on the nasal bridge)
- Under-eye area or tear troughs
- Back of Hands
