Memorial Day Weekend marks the beginning of summer and everything outdoors that we love about this season. The celebratory events during this special weekend include everything from going to the beach to backyard barbecues. It’s also a time when most people show off the hard work they’ve done to get ready for summertime. Yes, that means shorts, bikinis, and swim trunks revealing parts of the body that haven’t seen the light of day for the last several months.
While it’s possible to improve the look of the body by exercising and eating healthy, the face is a bit harder to transform. Increased water consumption, consuming foods high in vitamins and nutrients, and of course, using moisturizer and sunscreen can all help make the face look more youthful, but most of us need a bit more.
BOTOX and fillers offer a more youthful look without any effort on your part. Understanding how these injectables work can help you decide if they’re right for you.
BOTOX® for Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles can be smoothed away with BOTOX. It is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable with onabotulinumtoxin A. The purified protein from this toxin is injected into muscles, which temporarily improves the look of moderate to severe wrinkles. It can be used on the following facial areas:
- Sides of the Eyes (Crow’s Feet)
- Between the Eyebrows (Frown Lines or “Elevens”)
This wrinkle treatment is safe and effective. Most people report the effects lasting about 3-4 months.
People see results within 72 hours, but the maximum effects can take up to 7 days. This is why it’s important to schedule an appointment with an experienced BOTOX injector, such as James Christian Sardelli, RPA-C now, so you’ll be ready for all of the Memorial Day festivities.
Fillers for Volume Loss
One of the most common signs of aging is volume loss in the face. This can lead to sunken cheeks, sagging skin, thinning lips, and deep wrinkles. Those who have lost weight to get ready for the summer may see even more dramatic age effects. The good news is that fillers can help.
Fillers boost volume in facial areas to make features look more youthful again. Brands made of hyaluronic acid (HA) are the preferred type and are injected into the face where volume is desired. The HA gel remains in the area, drawing in moisture and causing it look fuller, lifted, and smoother.
Fillers are noticed immediately after treatment, and the effects can last as long as 18 months depending on the type of formula used. Determining which filler product will give you the desired results involves meeting with a knowledgeable and experienced injector.
