If you’re not completely on-board with the recovery time and intensity of facelifts, injectables are the way to go. These subtler, more natural-looking options work in two ways: relaxing muscles and filling your skin. Here’s a breakdown of exactly what they are and how they work.
Over the years, you smile, laugh, cry, frown, and raise your eyebrows. These displays of emotion are beautiful and unavoidable, but what’s left behind afterward some of us could do without. Smile lines, crow’s feet, and other face and neck wrinkles will start to appear over time, showing your age.
Neurorelaxers, as the name suggests, work to relax facial muscles that might be causing wrinkles to appear. These products, which include Botox® and Dysport®, are commonly used on the forehead, eyes, neck, nose, chin, and between the eyebrows. Immobilizing or relaxing facial muscles can reduce and even eliminate the appearance of some of your more stubborn wrinkles.
Dermal fillers, whether synthetic or naturally derived, do exactly what their name implies: they fill in your skin. As you age, your skin produces less collagen and elastin, making it look thinner and less firm. These injectables work to fill in specific problem areas you may have in order to give them renewed life. Lasting anywhere from six months to two years, these fillers are capable of filling laugh lines, plumping lips, enhancing the shape of cheeks, filling-out under-eye areas, and making scars less visible.
