No one has to know your true age, but the fine lines and wrinkles on your face tend to give that away. You can get your youthful, glowing skin back with the help of Botox® or an injectable dermal filler. The skincare experts at Piñero Preventive Medical Care in Orlando, Florida offer flexible scheduling. So call or make an appointment online to get in right away for your first treatment.
The main reason you develop wrinkles and fine lines — aside from sun exposure — is because your facial muscles tense up with each expression. Whether you raise your eyebrows, smile, or frown, your muscles become tense, forcing the skin to stay in that position.
You’ll notice that your fine lines and wrinkles develop in the areas where you show the most expression, like across your forehead and around your mouth. These imperfections are what make you unique, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with these unsightly signs of aging.
They aren't the same, but each skin-smoothing injection has the same result: youthful skin. Botox is a type of highly-purified botulinum toxin that works by targeting muscles and nerves, forcing them to relax. As facial muscles relax, your skin does too, lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Piñero Preventive Medical Care also offers Xeomin® injections which are botulinum toxin alternatives to Botox.
Dermal fillers, including Belotero® and Radiesse®, are plumping injectables. They’re made up of agents like hyaluronic acid that fill in the gaps in your skin from underneath the surface. Dermal fillers also help your body create new collagen, which is connective tissue that makes your skin bounce back and appear supple.
Your skincare expert at Piñero Preventive Medical Care will help you figure out the best option for you. It’s going to depend on the severity of your fine lines and wrinkles, your health, what your expectations are, and also your budget. Some patients use different injections for different areas, or try one and then decide to switch to a different option.
No, although they’re very durable. Botulinum toxin injections, including Botox and Xeomin, last for about four months or more. With dermal fillers, you can have visibly smoother skin for up to one year. Your practitioner can tell you what to expect from your injection based on the depth of your wrinkles.
