Information About Anti Aging Injectable Fillers
Plastic surgery can alter patients' bodies and create more proportionate physiques and faces. Many patients undergo plastic surgery to change the shape and profile of their noses, augment their breasts or eliminate stubborn fatty deposits. However, patients are also seeking cosmetic surgery to maintain their current looks or rejuvenate themselves to look younger and more refreshed. Anti aging procedures help patients lessen wrinkles, as well as give them smoother, more youthful-looking skin. One of the most highly requested anti aging treatments is injectable fillers.
There are a wide array of injectable fillers, including Botox, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra, Dysport and Juvederm. Botox injections are the most requested cosmetic procedures because of their quick recovery periods and dramatic results. Patients can also receive Radiesse or Sculptra injections, which can provide anti-aging results for up to two years.
Some injectable fillers not only smooth wrinkles, but also augment lips. Juvederm and Restylane are frequently used to plump women's lips to give women the bee-stung, pouty mouths they desire. Juvederm offers nearly instantaneous results, while Restylane requires two to three days of recovery.
About Anti-Aging Skin Care Treatments
Patients who wish to undergo less invasive anti-aging skin care treatments often decide to receive facials or other non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. Thermage is the latest in anti-aging technologies, utilizing radio waves to stimulate collagen growth for three to six months. Patients can enjoy the results for up to two years.
In addition, many products available for consumer use give patients the looks they wish to achieve. Moisturizers rich in antioxidants or Retin-A can soften the appearance of aging. Many consumers have also had success with products containing Vitamin C, a nutrient that promotes collagen growth.
Choosing a Plastic Surgeon for Anti-Aging Procedures
When deciding upon a plastic surgeon, patients should ensure that their plastic surgeon is board certified. Cosmetic surgeons who are endorsed by the American Board of Plastic Surgery adhere to strict health regulations and policies that provide high levels of patient safety. Patients should also request to see previous anti-aging procedure patients performed by the surgeon. In this way, patients can view the surgeon's skills, as well as obtain a realistic goal of their outcome for themselves.
After a thorough consultation, plastic surgeons can determine which anti-aging treatment is right for the patient. For slight wrinkles and frown lines, cosmetic surgeons typically recommend injectable fillers. Patients who have deeper lines may choose to undergo facelift surgery or laser skin resurfacing. They may also encourage a combination of anti-aging procedures.
In some cases, patients seek a plastic surgeon to request treatment to maintain youthful skin or prevent further skin damage. Antioxidant creams or Retin-A topical treatments can give patients beautiful results. Others enjoy smoother skin from microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
Anti-aging treatments can provide results for two months to two years, depending on the procedure and the patient. Some patients achieve beautiful results by combing a variety of anti-aging procedures, such as Botox injections with antioxidant creams, or Thermage treatments with Retin-A cream.
