At Revive Wellness Group located in Gibsonburg and Perrysburg, OH, we know that aging affects everyone a little bit differently. For some, aging causes lines and wrinkles on the upper half of the face. For others, it affects the lower half of their faces. There are some who experience aging all over their face. If you want to enhance your appearance, treat a double chin, or smooth wrinkles, we offer different cosmetic injectables that can meet all of your aesthetic goals.
Cosmetic injectables are treatments designed to improve and enhance your appearance. There are many different kinds of cosmetic injectables, and we can customize a treatment plan that’s right for you.
Some products can smooth the wrinkles that have formed as a result of repetitive dynamic muscular movements on the upper half of your face. Others can also restore volume to different areas of the lower half of your face and even eliminate stubborn fat that creates a double chin. Regardless of your goals, we can meet all of your aesthetic goals in a quick yet effective treatment.
Treating Dynamic Wrinkles: Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin
Neuromodulators are injectables that are designed to smooth expression lines that form on the upper half of the face. They work by relaxing the muscles responsible for dynamic movements, which lead to dynamic wrinkles as your skin’s structure begins to weaken as you age.
When injected into the muscles in the upper half of the face, Neuromodulators relax those muscles and block the communication between the nerve signals and the muscle. Within a few weeks of your treatment, you’ll begin to notice that your lines and wrinkles are softening and, in some cases, may temporarily disappear altogether.
What Areas Can They Treat?
While all of these neuromodulators can treat dynamic wrinkles, they are approved to treat different areas of the face. They can treat forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Some of these neuromodulators are used to treat medical conditions and prevent pain and discomfort associated with migraines and jaw pain that results from teeth grinding.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Once we administer a neurotoxin into the muscles responsible for causing your dynamic wrinkles, you can expect to see results within five to seven days of your treatment. Different neuromodulators deliver results at different times, but on average, the best results are usually most noticeable within one week of the treatment process. You will begin to notice that your expression lines are softening, and you will look more youthful and well-rested.
How Long Do Results Last?
Most neuromodulators deliver results that last approximately three to six months, based on how quickly your body metabolizes the ingredients in the injectable. As soon as you notice a change in the appearance of your lines and wrinkles, all you have to do is schedule a follow-up treatment to maintain your wrinkle-free results.
Treating and Correcting Volume Loss: Dermal Fillers
There are lines, wrinkles, and aesthetic imperfections caused by the aging process that appear on the lower half of the face. These signs of aging are almost always attributed to volume loss and require a very specific injectable to make them less noticeable.
Since neuromodulators are designed to treat wrinkles that form from repetitive muscular movements, you need something different to treat volume loss, something very specific. That’s where hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers come in.
The Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Based Dermal Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that the body makes to lubricate the joints and keep the skin looking soft and youthful. As you age, your body produces less of this necessary substance, and the skin begins to experience volume loss, hollow areas, and general skin laxity. You start to look and feel older, and your skin lacks the hydration needed for that youthful glow.
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers restore volume beneath the skin’s surface and contain a specialized formulation that attracts water, which not only corrects volume loss but makes you look more youthful.
What Do They Treat?
Dermal fillers are very versatile. They can treat volume loss, restore volume to hollow areas, smooth lines and wrinkles, enhance facial proportions and features, and augment the lips. There are different formulations designed to treat specific areas of the face, and we can choose the right one for you at your initial consultation.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
When you begin treatment with a dermal filler, you can expect immediate results. Your initial results will not be your final results, but you can expect to see your final results within a week of your treatment.
How Long Do They Last?
Dermal fillers deliver long-lasting results. After your treatment, you can expect your results to last anywhere from six months to two years based on the filler we use during the treatment process. When you come in for your consultation, we will give you a better idea of what kind of results you can expect based on the filler you select to treat your problem areas.
Eliminating Submental Fullness: Kybella
If you suffer from a double chin, we have a treatment that can help eliminate those stubborn fat cells for good. We offer Kybella, an FDA-approved injectable that contains an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid that works by breaking down fat cells.
Once the fat cells are broken down, the body eliminates them naturally over the course of several months. You will achieve gradual results, but the benefit is, those results will be permanent. Once the body eliminates those fat cells, they can’t come back.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients need two to four treatments to achieve the best results. We’ll design a customized treatment plan for your needs once we evaluate your area of concern in person.
Add an Injectable to Your Routine
Our injectables are versatile and effective. Whether you want to treat dynamic lines and wrinkles, restore volume to your face, eliminate a double chin, or all of the above, we can help create the perfect treatment plan for you. Our goal is to help you look like the best version of yourself, and by adding injectables to your cosmetic routine, you can become exactly that.
We Also Offer Botox:
Have you started to notice your frown lines, smile lines, or forehead wrinkles getting deeper? Just like paper can get creased when folded, your skin can develop creases after years of smiling and frowning. One treatment that you have access to as our patient is Botox injections. At Revive Wellness Group, we are committed to your health and wellness, both inside and out. Sometimes you need a little help to feel great in your skin, and Botox treatments can do just that.
What Is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is one of the most widely used and trusted botulinum toxin neuromodulators on the market today. It is a drug that can be injected intramuscularly to block certain signals from the nerves to the muscles. This can cause targeted muscles to relax, preventing muscular contraction in the specific areas that we discuss during your consultation.
When neuromodulators are injected into your facial muscles, we can keep the muscles from folding your skin and causing wrinkles. Only tiny selected areas are affected, allowing for natural motion everywhere else. The result is beautiful, smooth skin even when you smile, frown or raise your eyebrows.
Other Uses for Botox
Off-label use of Botox injections is common and can help with other concerns such as TMJD and migraines. It is always important to have a consultation with your doctor to find out if these uses for Botox are right for you.
