Injectables Q & A
What are injectables?
Injectables describe cosmetic fillers and neuromodulators that enhance your natural features and address a variety of common, age-related skin conditions like:
- Fine lines
- Loss of facial volume
You develop these conditions as you get older and your body slows down its production of collagen, an essential protein that contributes to healthy, young-looking skin.
What dermal filler injectables are available?
To address the most common age-related cosmetic flaws that affect the health of your skin and your self-confidence, the Concord Health and Wellness Center team offers popular dermal fillers, like Restylane.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid injectable that addresses moderate to severe wrinkles, lines, and creases, especially around your mouth and nose. To ensure natural-looking results, the Concord Health and Wellness Center team follows a custom treatment plan that outlines the areas of injection.
Treatment with Restylane provides immediate results, giving you smoother skin, increased volume, and less noticeable wrinkles. This type of injectable also offers long-lasting results, with many enjoying benefits that last up to a year.
The team at Concord Health and Wellness Center also offers Botox for age-related skin issues.
How does Botox work?
Botox is an injectable prescription medication that differs from cosmetic fillers. Instead of injecting substances to plump skin, Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for deep-set frown lines on your brow and crow’s feet around your eyes. As muscles relax, your skin smooths out. This gives you a younger, refreshed appearance.
The team at Concord Health and Wellness Center also uses Botox to treat hyperhidrosis, a chronic condition that causes you to sweat excessively. Injecting Botox into areas surrounding your sweat glands disrupts the communication between the gland and your brain, reducing the production of sweat.
In addition to treating your underarms, your provider can inject Botox into other areas of your body prone to excessive sweating like:
- Under the breasts
To determine if you’re a candidate for treatment with Botox or another injectable, your Concord Health and Wellness Center provider reviews your medical history and discusses your expectations for results. If these injectables aren’t right for you, you may benefit from a string facelift.
How does a string facelift work?
A string facelift is a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift. The procedure involves temporary sutures that visibly lift and tighten your facial skin.
The application of the sutures, or threads, also triggers your body’s natural healing response. As your Concord Health and Wellness Center provider inserts the threads under the surface of your skin, your body reacts by producing extra collagen, which further firms your skin and smooths out wrinkles and fine lines.
If you’re ready to address wrinkles or excessive sweating without surgery or downtime, schedule a consultation to discuss your options for injectables. You can request an appointment at Concord Health and Wellness Center online or by phone today.
