Everyone wants to put their best face forward — it’s the first thing people notice when they meet you. Despite having an optimistic personality and sunny outlook on life, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin can cause your face to appear tired, grumpy, and worn out.
If you want to look as youthful and radiant on the outside as you feel inside, cosmetic injectables could be the solution, and we can help with that. At A New You Health & Wellness, physician and aesthetic medicine specialist Jonathan Chang, MD, offers the latest weight loss and cosmetic treatments to help you look and feel your best.
With a variety of cosmetic injectables on the market, it can be challenging to know which treatment is right for you. Your best option depends on the health of your skin, your desired results, and your unique skin concerns. And you don’t have to choose just one. Each injectable offers benefits, and combining them offers enhanced results.
Botox® is a mainstay
Botox remains one of the most popular injectable options available today. When you choose Botox, you join the estimated 11 million people who have used this injectable with excellent results.
Approved for cosmetic use by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2002, Botox injections work by relaxing the facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The result is skin that appears smoother and younger looking. And, if used regularly, Botox can help prevent deeper lines from forming.
Results from Botox are technique-dependent, meaning the skill of the person administering the injections is paramount. That’s why you should choose a provider with experience and knowledge, like our team members at A New You Health & Wellness.
Dermal fillers and more
Injectables like dermal fillers give your face a fresher appearance by restoring facial volume. The natural aging process causes you to lose fat in your face, noticeable by age 35. Every 5-10 years after that, you can expect to lose additional facial volume. Less facial fat causes you to look older and makes wrinkles and fine lines more apparent.
Fillers are gel-like substances that we inject below your skin’s surface. We can use them to target different areas of your face, based on your cosmetic goals and the results you desire. We use fillers from the Juvéderm collection, which offers a wide range of products to target specific areas.
For example, some dermal fillers can restore the fuller cheeks of your youth while minimizing lines and folds around your mouth and nose. If you’re concerned about wrinkles around your lips, other fillers can smooth away those wrinkles and restore lip volume.
Injecting dermal fillers stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, key proteins that play a role in healthy, younger-looking skin. The benefits don’t end there. Dermal fillers replenish hyaluronic acid, an important lubricant that plumps and moisturizes the skin.
Combining cosmetic injectables
These minimally invasive alternatives to surgery grow in popularity each year, and injectables are a safe cosmetic treatment option.
Each person has unique needs and desires when it comes to combating the signs of aging. At our patient-centered practice, your aesthetic goals are a driving factor in choosing the right combination of cosmetic injectables to restore your youthful appearance and address nagging skin issues.
Many people want to minimize common issues such as crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles — concerns that Botox handles beautifully. If you also want to restore plumpness to your lips, you need a dermal filler for the job.
You can use a variety of cosmetic injectables in the same session to get the look you’re after. At A New You Health & Wellness, a comprehensive consultation gives you the opportunity to learn more about how each type of injectable can help you accomplish your cosmetic goals.
