3 Injectable Anti-Aging Facial Treatments to Try Today
When it comes to aesthetic enhancement treatments and cosmetic medicine as a whole, there is quite bit that we must fight against. The fact is that no matter how great your skincare regimen is, and how many treatments you have done, in some ways you just have to accept that you are fighting a losing battle. Over time, as we age, our skin and other tissue begins to degrade. And no matter how well you might care for your skin, the fact is that father time cannot be beat, and with every passing day are skin is losing vital skincare compounds that make up connective tissue and are there to help our skin combat the effects of aging as well as outside, environmental factors. Everything from aging, sun damage, weather conditions like wind and rain, to the foods we eat, and the pollution we come into contact with living in the world – there is a whole lot out there that can damage our skin. Its important to understand that there are a number of options you do have to help stifle these effects, and to push them back as much as possible. With so many anti-aging facial treatments out there, it can be difficult to choose which ones are right for you. While there are tons of surgical options out there, many of us would rather not go under the knife and would much prefer to use certain topicals and noninvasive skincare treatments. And even then, there are tons to choose from, but whether you choose to go with trendy procedures like PRP injections, the Vampire Facelift, or traditional favorites like an injectable dermal filler, the team at Alluring Image has certainly got their recommendations. In this article, we will be going into a few of the most effective injectable based treatments you can undergo right now to help restore, and rejuvenate your skin, while helping to fight off the unwanted effects of aging.
· The Vampire Facelift & PRP Injections
While these can also be considered to be two separate procedures, we chose to combine them as the popular vampire facelift, includes the use of PRP injections. However, when it comes to PRP injections or platelet rich plasma injections, you can also choose to have them done by themselves. The vampire facelift combines the use of multiple procedures in one, the use of PRP therapy, and a hyaluronic acid based, injectable dermal filler such as Juvéderm. Blood is drawn from the patient in order to harvest the platelet rich plasma solution, then once it is treated, and prepped, the PRP is combined with the injectable dermal filler, most commonly Juvéderm or Restylane, as they use hyaluronic acid as their base. Once combined, they are both injected into the treatment area along the patient’s face. This is a highly effective anti-aging facial treatment that helps to treat wrinkles and fine lines, facial volume loss, the presence of unwanted acne scars, and hyperpigmentation or facial discoloration issues that occur more often as we age. While this procedure is proven to be quite effective, it can be costly for some – therefore you can also choose to have PRP injections done on their own, which will save you the cost of the filler, and provide you with a decent amount of facial tissue rejuvenation on its own, with much less of the filling effects.
· Hyaluronic Acid Based Dermal Fillers
When it comes to noninvasive treatments, especially injectable treatments, the use of injectable dermal fillers like Juvéderm or Restylane have become quite common over the past decade or so. The fact is that they work far better than other dermal fillers, as they make use of HA as an active ingredient. HA or hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring compound that provides our skin with its natural moisture, volume, hydration and plumpness. However, like collagen it is depleted with age. And therefore, injecting from an outside source, can help to bolster your stores, and improve the texture, tone, and tightness of the skin while providing much-needed volume that is lost with age.
· Neuromodulators Like Botox & Dysport
If we are talking about injectables, then there is no way we can leave out the king of all aesthetic enhancement treatments, Botox. As the single most popular anti-aging facial treatment out there today, Botox accounts for about half of all aesthetic procedures done today. And its close cousin, Dysport works quite similarly. When it comes to Botox injections cost can be a common issue, this makes Dysport a reasonable option as it can be cheaper. For Botox injections cost is actually a factor that many individuals don’t even care about, as they are such fans of the procedure, they would get it done no matter what it costs. Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport are used to treat dynamic wrinkles that appear as a result of aging, and more specifically years of facial expressions and the muscle contractions that occur beneath the skin as a result of those facial expressions. The active ingredient in Botox and Dysport is a bacterium that causes individuals to experience botulism. While this is devastating condition in some capacity, the bacteria works by causing temporary paralysis in the muscles that are responsible for the facial contractions and thus cause expressions in the face. By preventing this action, we are able to ensure that the skin has time to smooth itself out with less muscle contractions below.
