Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face are sometime inevitable as we age. During the 30’s, our skin naturally starts to lose collagen and elastin. This results in skin laxity and thinning of the facial skin, and in turn leads to the development of wrinkles and lines. Women in the area of Canal Winchester, Ohio who are interested in turning back the hands of time without plastic surgery will find that cosmetic injectables are a popular alternative.
What are cosmetic injectables?
Over the years, there have been a wide range of injectables that have entered into the market of aesthetic services. One of the most well-known is that of Botox. Botox is a neuromodulator that is known to limit muscle contractions. When it is injected into specific facial muscles, it can smooth dynamic wrinkles that are often formed with time. These include the muscles that allow us to furrow our eyebrows or lift our cheeks to develop wrinkles around the outside of the eyes. Botox is best used to address:
- Glabellar lines
- Forehead folds
- Eye wrinkles (Crow’s feet)
Alternatively, patients can also ask the team at Columbus Women’s Care about the benefits of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are another type of cosmetic injectable that is available for aging skin. Unlike Botox, dermal fillers are injected directly into the wrinkles and folds of concern for immediate improvement. These injections use hyaluronic acid which attracts water molecules and adds instant volume. This smooths away wrinkles and folds on the face, with results that last several months before reinjection is needed.
