As we age, we develop lines, wrinkles, creases and sunken areas on our face. Fortunately, there are plenty of age-fighting treatments such as Botox® and fillers that can smooth your lines and plump the right areas of your skin to make you look years younger. To find out more about how Botox and fillers can help you look your best, call The Spa on Par 3 in Horseshoe Bay, Texas or make an appointment online.
Both Botox® Cosmetic and fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are injections that reduce and eliminate lines and wrinkles in your face. Botox is a neurotoxin used to freeze muscles in your face that create wrinkles, primarily when you use facial expressions. Fillers are ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and polylactic acid that fill the lines, creases, and wrinkles in your face as well as plump thin or sunken areas like lips and cheeks.
Botox softens and eliminates lines in your forehead and around your eyes, like crow’s-feet and “elevens,” which are deep wrinkles that form between your eyebrows that look like the number 11. Botox injections are quick, taking just a few minutes, and bring few side effects. Botox is the most common minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the United States, and its effects last about 3-6 months.
The Spa on Par 3 offers the following dermal fillers to help you fill lines, diminish wrinkles and contour your face to look your best.
This filler uses hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body naturally produces, to plump lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nose, and forehead. It’s also used for plumping cheeks and lips and improving the appearance of scars. The treatment takes just 10-20 minutes, and results are immediate.
The benefit of Juvéderm is that it’s long-lasting. Results vary depending on how quickly the Juvéderm is absorbed into your system and where you get the injection but, on average, results last from one to two years.
Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite, also a substance that your body produces naturally. It’s used to fill in lines around your nose and mouth, commonly referred to as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and frown lines. Radiesse also increases fullness in your cheeks and other areas to contour your face, and it also plumps up your hands. Radiesse also takes about 20 minutes, and its effects last about 18 months.
This filler is also made of hyaluronic acid and smooths lines and wrinkles as well as plumps areas on your face that have lost volume. It’s one of the thinnest fillers and is ideal for plumping lines around lips, forehead, cheeks, and eyes. Belotero’s effects last about six months.
