The most joyous season of the year is just around the corner. With Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Christmas, and New Year’s all within a month of each other, it’s no wonder why you see extended family and old-time friends during this time.
If you have wrinkles and lost facial volume, sometimes it can be hard to look and feel your best. The last thing you want someone to notice about you is how much you’ve aged since the previous year.
Anthony N. Dardano, located in Boca Raton, Florida, provides Cosmetic injectables to erase some of the signs of aging. Look five to seven years younger with a minimally-invasive treatment that will make you the center of attention this year.
Say goodbye to wrinkles with a wrinkle relaxer
Fine lines and wrinkles generally start to appear in your thirties. After years of repeated facial movements like smiling and frowning, creases may become etched into your skin. While anti-aging creams can be easily found at your local drug store, most do little to improve your appearance noticeably.
How it works
Botox® and Dysport® are two neuromodulators that can smooth away wrinkles for up to four months. While Dysport is primarily used to treat frown lines, BOTOX can target forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. They work very similarly, but some people find that one formula works better for them than the other.
Neuromodulators temporarily paralyze wrinkle-forming facial muscles but leave the rest of your face free to move. This gives natural results that still allow you to express a wide range of emotions. Not only does BOTOX get rid of wrinkles, but it also works to prevent new wrinkles from forming.
During your treatment
Your technician at the practice of Anthony N. Dardano’s office can help you decide which neuromodulator is best for you. Both treatments are almost identical and take about twenty minutes to perform.
You relax in a reclining chair while your technician mixes your solution. They may apply a numbing cream to your face to help keep you comfortable, but most patients tolerate the treatment well and describe it as painless. Next, they perform a series of injections in the areas you’re looking to treat.
The appointment is concluded by going over your aftercare. There is no downtime associated with BOTOX, but you are advised to avoid exercise for twenty-four hours and refrain from lying down for four hours. Your results will gradually appear over the next 3-14 days.
Restore facial volume with dermal fillers
No one wants fat, but it’s the secret to a youthful complexion. As you age, your collagen production declines, causing your face to lose volume in places like your brows, cheeks, and temples. Luckily, dermal fillers can help restore lost volume, so you have a younger-looking appearance.
Restylane® and Juvéderm® are two dermal fillers composed of synthetic hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring substance in your body. Coming in a gel-like substance, the filler is injected under your skin to fill in places the aging process has thinned out. Fillers can also be used to enhance your facial contours like plumping your lips, heightening your cheekbones, or defining your jawline.
During your filler appointment, your technician will go over what the treatment involves and apply a topical anesthetic to your face. Next, they will make a series of injections with a microscopic needle. Most patients describe it to feel mildly discomforting, but the whole procedure only takes about twenty minutes and will be over before you know it.
One of the best parts of dermal fillers is that your results are immediate. You’ll notice a great improvement after your treatment, but the filler takes about four weeks to fully integrate — this when you can expect your full outcome.
Dermal fillers are known for their incredibly long-lasting results. Depending on what type of filler and where you receive it, the results can last for an average of six months to a year. We suggest scheduling your filler appointment at least two weeks before an event or gathering to make sure all bruising and swelling reside.
Dermal fillers and BOTOX can be easily used together. If you have moderate to severe aging lines, using both can give you the most dramatic results for the holidays. We find that using the two together can extend the longevity of your results.
