Botox/Dysport/Xeomin: Neurotoxin injections can temporarily relax facial muscles to prevent or smooth out existing wrinkles and restore skin to a more youthful appearance.
Fillers: Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are used to restore lost volume in the face, plump lips and soften mild to moderate lines. HA is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that works by not only adding volume but also by delivering vital nutrients that help the skin maintain moisture and softness. With only one treatment patients will see visible improvement. Some swelling may occur immediately after treatment. Lush MedSpa offers filler options from Allergan and Galderma.
What are Injectables for Skin Care?
Injectables for skin care are highly popular procedures to help relax facial muscles and reduce signs of aging, or alternatively, rejuvenate and enhance soft-tissue volume loss. There are two primary forms of injectables used in skin care, neurotoxins (such as Botox) and dermal fillers (such as Juvederm, Restalyne and others). Each category has distinct usages. Neurotoxins are injectable proteins that relax muscles and as a result soften lines and wrinkles, smoothing one’s skin to help project a more youthful appearance. Neurotoxins such as Botox can also be used to reduce excess sweating as well as relieve migraines. Dermal fillers are a gel-like, naturally-occurring substance that is injected beneath the skin to increase volume, smooth the skin’s surface and enhance facial features. Fillers may be used to increase lip volume, enhance shallow contours, soften wrinkles and even improve the appearance of scarring. Due to wide-spread usages and varying products, injectables offer many solutions to common skin issues.
