At some point in time, we all look in the mirror and think, “I need a little something…” We are bombarded with ads and beautiful photos of seemingly ageless celebrities. What are they doing to look so incredibly young, ageless, and fresh?
If you have been thinking about facial fillers and injectables, now might be a good time to start. There are many options available. What you need depends mostly on the look you are trying to achieve and how long you want your results to last.
When considering injectable dermal fillers, keep in mind they are a gel-like substance that is injected beneath the skin. The primary goal of a dermal filler is to smooth your facial lines, fill in lost volume, and enhance your facial contours. This is one of the most popular and cost-effective ways to look younger without surgery.
There are many different kinds of dermal fillers on the market. Your best option is to consult with your certified provider. Each product is designed to act a little differently and many are uniquely formulated for texture, density, and injection depth. Your Lineout™ Certified Provider will know which product is right for the look you want to achieve.
Versa Lips and or Restylane Kysse
These products are ideal if you are wanting a fuller lip or help with hydration of the lip. Lip filler products not only add volume and hydration but can enhance the shape to give a more youthful structured appearance. Results on average last between 6-12 months and typically 1 full syringe is needed even for the most natural enhancement. Your certified provider will discuss which dermal filler product is best for your aesthetic needs and goals, and provide your treatment using the best techniques and safest practices to ensure that you’ll love your new look.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin
These products are what we call neuromodulators or neurotoxins. Neuromodulators are used in treatment to relax those pesky fine lines that we see throughout our forehead, in between our brows, crow’s feet, etc. which can prematurely age us and also be our first indicators of aging. Treatment for these areas generally requires a consultation to determine appropriate dosing to relax these muscles causing the fine lines and wrinkles to disappear.
Neuromodulators are not only great in treating fine lines but are extremely effective in the anti-aging process. Preventative treatments are popular in individuals who don’t necessarily have set-in wrinkles to prevent them from surfacing at all. Other areas of the face that neuromodulators are used are in the masseters (TMJ), upper lip for a lip flip, chin, DAO’s, platysmal bands, and even the underarms to treat excessive sweating.
Your certified provider will discuss with you which product might work best based on lifestyle, aesthetic goals, physical assessment of the area needing to be treated, and budget. Results typically last between 3-4 months depending on the client. It’s important to remember that your neuromodulator treatment is a journey and that you’ll get the best results by maintenance and working with your provider to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Restylane Refyne, and Juvaderm Plus Ultra XC
Considered two of the best injectable filler treatments for smile lines, these products help to alleviate wrinkles and rejuvenate the face. Both products produce a very natural enhancement and normally only require small amounts of filler in the surrounding treatment areas.
