It’s no secret that your skin changes over the years. Older skin is thinner and more delicate than youthful skin. Add to that repetitive facial expressions and loss of volume, and you get lines and wrinkles.
These changes are a natural part of getting older. But seeing those lines, wrinkles, and sagging features in the mirror can leave you feeling frustrated and embarrassed. The good news? Botox® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can help you turn back the clock.
Jessica Cannava, PA-C of Innovative Medical of Garden City specializes in Botox and aesthetic fillers. Learn more about our exciting new aesthetics services at New York Spine and Sports Surgery.
The benefits of Botox
Botox is the top cosmetic injectable in the United States today. It’s an FDA-approved treatment for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the face.
Botox might be right for you if you’re bothered by:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
These wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles, because they form with repeated facial expressions. Squinting, frowning, and raising your eyebrows all crease the skin over time, and these types of wrinkles are often deep-set.
Botox smooths wrinkles away with a purified neurotoxin. Onabotulinumtoxin A relaxes the muscles responsible for your wrinkles, giving you smoother, younger-looking skin.
Botox treatment takes just 10 minutes in our office. There’s no downtime, and you start seeing your results develop in the following 24-48 hours. In most cases, Botox injections last for about four months.
The benefits of aesthetic fillers
Botox relaxes muscles that cause tough dynamic wrinkles. Aesthetic fillers tackle a different problem with aging skin: loss of volume. Fillers restore volume below the surface of your skin to smooth lines and wrinkles.
Fillers could be a good option for you if you’re bothered by any of these:
- Chin crease
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Recessed acne scars
- Smile lines
- Sunken cheeks
- Thin lips
Many of these issues develop over time, as facial fat disappears and skin gets thinner. Lines and wrinkles form as skin begins to sag, but fillers offer an instant boost to revitalize the look of your skin.
Fillers instantly plump skin, and treatment takes only about 30 minutes in our office. There’s no downtime, and your results are immediate. Depending on the type of fillers you get, your results could last a year or longer.
Get your customized aesthetic injectable plan
Jessica and our team specialize in the best cosmetic injectables, so you don’t have to navigate your options alone. Everyone’s face is different, so there’s no one-size-fits-all treatment plan for fillers. When you come in for your consultation, we take a look at your facial features and talk with you about your aesthetic goals.
Botox could be right for you if you have moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes. If your face has been affected by fat loss and thinning skin, dermal fillers could help restore more youthful facial contours.
If you’re seeking a dramatic transformation, we may recommend combining Botox and fillers in a liquid facelift. A liquid facelift smooth wrinkles on the top half of your face and plumps skin on the bottom, giving you a look that’s younger, but still natural.
