Not all cosmetic procedures require surgery. Renowned Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Craft also offers some non-invasive treatments for rejuvenating your skin. If you want to refresh your face without going under the knife, you may be a great candidate for injectable treatments. Read on to learn more about this exciting aesthetic option.
How Injectables Rejuvenate Your Face
One of the most common signs of aging is a loss of volume in your face. Collagen and elastin are proteins in your skin that give your face a youthful fullness. Alas, as you get older, your body produces less of these proteins. Fat also begins to droop. Dermal fillers are great for hydrating the skin and restoring plumpness to areas like your cheeks and lower face. Added volume can also minimize lines and wrinkles that have formed on your skin.
For lines on the upper portion of your face, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, the problem is that muscle movements cause indentations on your thinner skin. To address this cosmetic problem, a neuromodulator injectable (like Botox) can temporarily freeze the facial muscles so that the lines can fade from prominence.
Why Injectables Are Convenient
You would be hard-pressed to find a cosmetic treatment that is easier than injectables. The procedure is nearly painless and completed in a matter of minutes. Just as importantly, you won’t need any downtime, which means you can resume your normal activities as soon as you leave Dr. Craft’s office.
Although injectable results tend to last several months rather than several years, given how easy the treatments are, returning for periodic touch-ups is a breeze.
Dr. Craft offers some of the most reputable names in injectable treatment, which allows him to use the best type for any given cosmetic situation. Among his offerings are:
Juvéderm – This popular hyaluronic dermal filler adds fullness to your skin and features and also stimulates new collagen and elastin production for additional rejuvenation.
Restylane – Restylane is another hyaluronic acid filler known for having a smooth gel. Dr. Craft has Restylane Silk, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Refyne to best achieve your cosmetic goals.
Radiesse – Instead of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse uses calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which has a thicker consistency. It is a good choice if you want more instantaneous results.
Botox – This neuromodulator uses botulinum toxin to immobilize facial muscles to allow lines caused by expressions to fade over time.
