Cosmetic InjectablesNon-invasive Treatments in Sacramento
If you are bothered by signs of facial aging but are not ready to undergo surgery, you may benefit from cosmetic injectables. These products are safe, FDA-approved and effective in softening wrinkles, lines, or creases, and for addressing volume loss. Best of all, they require very little downtime and no surgery.
Botox is known as the lunchtime treatment because it can be conveniently performed during a lunchtime appointment. Made of botulinum type A, Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles responsible for various facial expressions, including smiling and frowning. Once the muscles are no longer able to contract, the wrinkles and lines on the overlying skin smooth out. Botox can be used to treat crow’s feet, wrinkles between the eyebrows and on the forehead. Results typically last three to four months.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based filler used to fill in wrinkles and lines, including those that form around the mouth. It can also be used to fill flat or hollow facial areas, including the cheeks and the area below the lower eyelids. Results can last six months to a year.
Restylane is another hyaluronic acid filler that can smooth out moderate to severe nasolabial folds, laugh or smile lines, and lip wrinkles. Certain Restylane products can be used to temporarily lift sagging or flat cheeks. Results can last for approximately six months.
