A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better.
Dysport temporarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by reducing specific muscle activity.
Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions.7 One injection into each of the 5 points between and above the eyebrows temporarily prevents muscle contractions that cause frown lines.
Restylane is safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectible made from Ploy-L-lactic acid (PLLA), targets the underlying causes of the signs of facial aging. It does this by replacing collagen, restores volume loss, and refines lines. An average number of treatment sessions are 4 injections usually about 3 weeks apart. Sessions are spread out this way because Scupltra Aesthetic gradually replaces lost collagen to restore a natural looking appearance that can last up to 25 months. The time between injections allows it enough time to work so Dr. Sandhu can fine-tune your follow up treatments.
