Times have changed. You used to be stuck with wrinkles and sagging skin, but that’s not the case anymore. With cosmetic injectables, you have a variety of options to turn back the clock. Plus, these treatments are quick and convenient and come with no downtime. And with the holiday season right around the corner, it’s a great time to make sure you look your best.
That said, it can be tricky to determine which injectables are right for you and your cosmetic goals. At Lotus Health & Wellness in Brunswick, Georgia, Serena Skinner, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, and our team can help you choose the best treatments to achieve your desired look.
But we also want to help you be informed before you visit our office. So here’s a quick guide to our recommended cosmetic injectables and what they can do for you.
For the upper half of your face: Botox®
Botox is an injectable filler that’s specifically designed to treat dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form because of repeated facial expressions in the area. Specifically, Botox can smooth:
Frown lines (the wrinkles between your eyebrows)
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscle that’s causing your wrinkle. This allows the skin above it to relax, turning back the clock.
For the lower half of your face: dermal fillers
The wrinkles and sagging skin that develop on the lower half of your face have a different cause. These aging signs occur because your skin loses collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin plump and elastic. Ultimately, this results in volume loss.
Fortunately, with dermal fillers, our team can restore that lost volume. We offer Juvéderm®, a leading dermal filler, to correct:
Lines around your nose and mouth
Vertical lip lines
If you have wrinkles on the upper half of your face and volume loss on the lower portion, we can combine Botox and Juvéderm to help you reach your cosmetic goals.
What’s more, both Juvéderm and Botox take just minutes to apply and come with no downtime. You can choose these treatments as a lunchtime procedure to rejuvenate your face before heading back to work or the next thing on your agenda.
Our team of aesthetic specialists can provide you with the winning combination of cosmetic injectables, so you look your best this holiday season. Contact Lotus Health & Wellness by giving us a call or booking your appointment online today.
