Injectables for the Holidays
It’s that time of the year again. The holidays are just around the corner, and if you are like most people, you are starting to think long and hard about what to get for your loved ones.
Finding the perfect holiday gift is rarely easy. You must walk the fine line between finding something that is both thoughtful and useful, while making sure not to bust your budget. This can take some finesse.
Facial fillers can make for an excellent gift for your loved one. They do an excellent job smoothing away wrinkles to help provide you with a more youthful appearance, and they offer a great alternative to major cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift. Many cosmetic surgeons offer this treatment in a spa-like atmosphere, making it an even more attractive gift option.
There are several options when considering facial fillers. Ultimately, it is important to discuss them all with your cosmetic surgeon to determine which one is right for your loved one.
Juvederm® is an excellent option to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is a gel implant composed primarily of hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that boosts skin elasticity, giving your skin a smoother and softer appearance.
Juvederm is injected into the mid-to-deep dermal layer of your skin, the area where most wrinkles develop. It lifts and adds volume to the wrinkles in the region being treated. The process can be performed in one visit to your cosmetic surgeon, and will only take about an hour to complete.
Juvederm can be used for the following aesthetic skin improvements:
• Naso-labial wrinkles (the region around your nose and mouth)
• Fuller lips
• Cheek augmentation
• Chin augmentation
• Filling in hollow areas underneath scar tissue
One main advantage of Juvederm over its competitors is that it tends to last longer than other injectables. You will retain the benefits of this product for approximately six to nine months. You should notice the results the day of the procedure.
Evolence is a yellowish, opaque gel made out of pig (porcine) collagen. It is injected into the inner layers of your facial skin to add volume and structure to worn-out facial areas. It is most effective treating moderate to deep facial wrinkles and naso-labial folds.
Evolence combines the porcine collagen with a sugar to create a new structure that binds with your body’s natural collagen. As you get older, your natural collagen breaks down, causing wrinkles and folds in your skin. Evolence helps replace this deteriorated collagen so that your skin becomes more durable and supple.
You will notice the results of your Evolence treatment immediately and the improvements should last for about six months.
